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.

Unfortunately the only Presidential candidate who understands this is crumbling thanks to a scandal of his own making. I don't know where pandering (or, at the very least being complicit in pandering) to some of the worst parts of American society ranks compared to advocating a war that will kill hundreds of thousands of people (at the very least) among numerous other abominations, but thanks to that appallingly stupid, misguided, and reprehensible endeavor, the most visible standard bearer for foreign policy decency has been discredited, fairly or not. Thanks to Murray Rothbard and company, libertarianism, the only socio-political philosophy consistent with human dignity and freedom is being drawn through the mud by the ignorant and malevolent. Sorry for the rant but I am furious.
