America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

LeftLibertarian2

A new Yahoo group for left libertarians has been set up because of discontent over the the group known as LeftLibertarian. You can view LeftLibertarian2 by clicking here. For details on why a new group is thought desirable, see Roderick Long's post "Long Live Secession" listed over there in the "Sheldon's Shared Items" box. Even more details can be found in the group posts. Also see this. In a nutshell, it has everything to do with J. Neil Schulman's authoritarian rule over the other list. Hey, he owns the list. So a big bunch of us walked.

That's "J" Neil Schulman, not "L". I wouldn't make a big deal out of it, except that L. Neil SMITH is also a RKBA activist, award winning science fiction writer, has a long history of association with the libertarian movement, has the middle name of "Neil" and has a last name that starts with "S". They are frequently confused.

I like Smith. In 1999, back in my unevolved partyarch days, Tom Knapp and I started an effort to try to draft him into running for the LP presidential nomination.
