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.

The Easy Way

No wonder allegiance to a state has replaced love of justice as the core value of Judaism. It's easier.

This implies that Jews are lazy and looking for the easy way. That certainly sets them apart from the rest of humanity.

I think that's true of virtually all people. They tend to economize on effort like everything else. Nothing specific to Jews is implied here.

As Mark Twain wrote in "Concerning the Jews": "All I care to know is that a man is a human being -- that is enough for me; he can't be any worse."
