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.

Urination Bad, Torture Okay

You might get punished for urinating on corpses, but if you order or commit torture on live prisoners, have no fear. There will be no legal consequences.

I'm absolutely shocked that american servicemen would stand huddled together with their penises out. My guess is that the dead bodies merely got in the way of their normal routine.
