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.

We'll Never Know

Maybe even without Western colonialism and U.S. intervention Muslims in the Middle East would "hate us for our way of life."

But we'll never know, will we?

They might still hate us (though I doubt it), but I'll bet they wouldn't attack us if we left them alone.

Well, of course they would. Just look at all the planes crashing into buildings in that secular hedonist cesspool, Sweden.

Seriously, however they *feel*, what they've got the resources to *do* was helped immensely by Reagan's aid to the Mujaheddin.
