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.

Enjoyed the interview Sheldon. You briefly mentioned peasants in England being thrown off the land and becoming the working class factory workers of the capitalists. Can you recommend a good article or essay that goes more into depth on this issue?

A good place to start is Kevin Carson's "The Subsidy of History": https://fee.org/articles/the-subsidy-of-history/
