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.

Thanks Sheldon. Interestly, I had read that Townshend gives substantially to the Labour Party.

P.S. Can I assume you're a John Entwistle fan?

Sheldon Richman said...

I'm a big Entwistle fan, Tom. Not surprised to hear that about Townshend.

Townshend's original version is okay, but nothing beats this cover version.

Sheldon Richman said...

You've got me there.

Sheldon, I don't know if you're a football fan, but during yesterday's pre-game hype, Katie Couric briefly interviewed Obama. One tidbit that caught my ear was when he meant to say that legislators "have their constituents' best interests at heart", but instead said that they "have their best constituents' interests at heart", before quickly correcting himself. It was priceless.

I think it was kinda cool that the Who finished their superbowl halftime set with "Don't Get Fooled Again," in the midst of the myraid disappointments of Mr. Hope and Change. Ok, we don't KNOW if they meant anything by it, but at least it wasn't Momma's got a squeezebox Daddy never sleeps at night!

Awesome. But what on earth is John Williams playing? Some single note ostinatos--sorry, "ostinati"--or something? Pete's playing was all I could hear. I guess a nylon-stringed guitar hasn't a chance in hell of competing with Mr. Windmill!
