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.

Heroes Walk Among Us

Bravo, Wikileaks!

Bravo indeed. Now will somebody in politics PLEASE draw some real conclusions from this? Remember, the government is supposed to run the military, not vice versa.

Sheldon Richman said...

The military IS the government and the government IS the military. The conclusion is that the government lies to us every day, routinely, especially about foreign intervention. Wikileaks and their sources are combating this. Hats off to them.
