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.

Trump, Putin, Sisi, Salman, and Netanyahu

If Trump were being criticized merely for ignoring Putin's authoritarian rule when Trump speaks about him -- and not for Trump's wish for detente -- I would have no objection. Of course, to be consistent, his critics would also have to fault Trump for how he talks about Sisi, Netanyahu, and wise King Salman.
