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.

Deep Philosophical Question of the Day

Is waterboarding torture?


Francois Tremblay said...

That's not deep but, insofar as philosophy is just a bunch of whackjobs endlessly discussing the obvious, I suppose it is philosophical.

Francois, can you tell your dog to stop licking my screen?

Francois Tremblay said...

Hmmmm... no.

Pity, but I respect that.
