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.

Aaron Swartz, RIP

I highly commend Glenn Greenwald's article about Aaron Swartz, the young genius and passionate champion of Internet freedom, who recently committed suicide after being targeted by a Javert-like federal prosecutor. Swartz's story is a sad commentary on the American justice [!] system.

Kinda sends a message to any startup candidates, eh? Play ball with the power, like google does, or face the consequences.

I wouldn't start a business in this fascist freak show if my life depended on it.
