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.

How to End Poverty Corporate State-Style

  1. Erect countless state-backed tollgates along the road to personal success, starting with the schools. 
  2. Filter tens of trillions of dollars through a humongous bureaucracy staffed by middle-class and upper-middle-class people, letting just enough money through to give the appearance of compassion, to avert civil unrest, and to create multigenerational dependency. 
  3. Send low-income kids off to fight and die in periodic wars in foreign lands. 
  4. Repeat as necessary.
