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.

Kennedy Op-ed in Star-Tribune

My latest Future of Freedom Foundation op-ed, on Ted Kennedy, was published by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune here.

The comments section had me in stitches. Especially the pseud' who told you to go read some Keynes. You right wing idealogue, you!

There's a word for these people. "Voters".

I realize it was a Minneapolis paper, thus read by many left wing types, but I found the comments depressing. These people never actually engage in argument, they erect ridiculous strawmen and peddle ahistorical nonsense. After spending most of the last decade focusing on how truly awful the American right is, I had almost forgotten that the left is probably a little worse.
