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.

Florida Voucher Plan Goes Down

The Washington Post reports today that the Florida Supreme Court has rejected the state's voucher plan because the "alternative [school] system" the program establishes is not accountable to the state. The irony is that any system that is perceived to subsidize private schools with taxpayer money will prompt demands for "accountability" and will eventually lead to state domination. Good riddance to the voucher system in Florida. Parents should stop waiting for politicians to rescue their kids from the government's clutches (imagine expecting that to happen!) and just find a way to get their kids out.
