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.

The Paper of Record

The New York Times headline about the shooter at the Holocaust Museum:

Museum Gunman a Longtime Foe of Government

With all due respect Sheldon, the problem with Twitter-length blogging is --to state the obvious-- it doesn't tell much to a casual visitor. Here you simply appear to be stating a fact. In your Tweet, you started with "Nice headline" but someone may wonder if you're being sarcastic or complimentary.

I read the article, and it never mentions who is the shooter who shot the 88-year-old racist. Was it the police? Was it an average person who ignored the law and carried a weapon for protection anyway? If enough people act like the person in the latter question, the security guard might be alive today.

Every person who is anti-government is a crazed killer.

How do I know?

I read it in the NY Times, of course!
