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.

15 Years

Today is the 15th anniversary of the day that thousands of American noncombatants paid the domestic butcher's bill for US foreign policy. Shame on every interventionist.

I know about a few neocons who would say that they were killed by stupid and backwards peasants who don't know their place. And, supposedly, these neocons were leftists in their youth.

And they also congratulate themselves in August because of how many lives and years of war were avoided thanks to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What a smart move, right?

And these guys are the same kind of people who tolerate Communist parties but not Nazi parties. Because consistence is just an old superstition.

I am so tired of all this strategic justification of evil. Sorry for the rant.

Do you really believe the official story? It's tempting to use the official story to criticize the interventionists. But what about the truth?

I don't believe it was an inside job.

"Inside job" is not really how I would put it, but it is more or less accurate. If you don't believe it was an inside job, what do you believe? I would recommend looking at the research done by Dr. James Fetzer and his associates. To me, it is a purely scientific question. Can the planes do what they were purported to do?

Keep up the great work.
