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.

Energy self-sufficiency for whom/what? The oligarchy that insists on throwing its military weight around (at our expense) to shock and awe people in other countries around the globe?

That group has seized an agenda they can get away with calling "mine," but it is not mine, and even if they should succeed in making me subject to its consequences, I shall NEVER give up denying that their evil doings are my wish, will, or even permission, and I shall strive in every way imaginable to escape its consequences (yes, OF COURSE emigrating, if it comes to that).
