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.

Systemically Risky

I have more to say about government as a systemic risk here at the Future of Freedom Foundation website. A teaser:

The Obama administration and congressional leaders assure us that the government can protect us from the “systemic risk” posed by big banks, insurance companies, and hedge funds.

But who will protect us from the government?

Sheldon,
You mentioned in this article people flying planes into buildings. I know I am writing on a separate topic and am at the risk of being labeled a "truther," but in my quest for the truth I have not read anything by you regarding the goverment's position (the 9/11 Commission Report)on what happened that day in 2001. So much of what has happened in the last seven years comes as a result of that fateful day. Will we ever really know what happened? Will the pepetrators ever be brought to justice?
