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.

Why didn’t Danny DeVito win an Oscar for this excellent movie?

Extreme conservative Economist need not read my comments:

Who's the villain ? The Owner of the company who makes and sells horse whips, or the mean evil guy who specializes in maximizing profits from Liquidations ?

The answer depends on your political values (or your amount of stupidity). A Lefty might oppose Liquidations. The Socialist specializes in exploiting capitalism via the govt (our worst enemy).

Should we listen to the CEO of Enron ? Their Auditors ? Would you buy the common stock of a company that makes incandescent light bulbs ? Is Wall Street destroying Amerika, or Wall Street's enemies ? Should the NewYork Stock Exchange sell common stock for Solyndra, or should the govt give money to Solyndra ? And who should decide ?

I thought the socialism experiment happened during the 20's and 30's and ended when Hitler committed suicide ?
