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.

Don't you find it ironic for Sen. Feinstein to make that video considering that she agrees with Jeff Sessions and Lindsey Graham on censoring the Internet?

I don't think it is ironic, I think it is normal. The Authoritarian Mindset is exemplified in Graham, Sessions, and Feinstein (as well as too many other Senators). This is another clear example of "As long as enough people can be frightened, then all people can be ruled. That is how it works in a democratic system, and mass fear becomes the ticket to destroy rights across the board." [Jim Bovard]
