Stem of Hamilton’s design Acclaimed economic historian Thomas J DiLorenzo provides the troubling Curse How Jefferson's MOBI #239 answer in Hamilton’s CurseDiLorenzo reveals how Hamilton first as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and later as the nation’s first and most influential treasury secretary masterfully promoted an agenda of nationalist glory and interventionist economics –core beliefs that did not die with Hamilton in his fatal duel with Aaron Burr Carried on through his political heirs the Hamiltonian legacy• Wrested control into the hands Curse How Jefferson's Arch Enemy Epubof the federal government by inventing the myth of the Constitution’s “implied powers” • Established the imperial presidency Hamilton himself proposed a permanent president –in other words a king• Devised a n. Hamilton's Curse continues the welcome revisionist history tradition of the scholars of the Mises Institute and the Lew Rockwell circle With this book Prof DiLorenzo goes back earlier in American history to expand on the thesis he presented in his two prior works on Abraham Lincoln The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked ie the lamentable victory of the empire builders strong central government advocates and mercantilists of the Federalist Party tradition over the Jeffersonian limited government faction With this book DiLorenzo convincingly buttresses his earlier argument that the Lincoln administration and the War Between the States dealt the fatal blow to States Rights federalism and for all intents and purposes the American Constitution in its original conceptionThe author uses direct uotations from Hamilton's hagriographers as well as his detractors to prove his case All of them view Hamilton as the father of the type of government we have today and all agree that Jefferson's vision effectively died with the defeat of the South and the States Rights doctrine The disagreements between the two camps are many and profound of course as they are based on profound differences in political philosophy The reader will bring his own prejudices to bear as to whether Hamiltonian America is the way the country should have gone but an honest reader will not easily dismiss the evidence of political chicanery double dealing and corruption at the highest levels of government that the Hamiltonians used to win their fight True politics ain't beanbag but I will leave it up to the interested reader to judge whether the Hamiltonians were the good or bad guys Tax and spend liberals and conservative imperialists will doubtless disagree with my answerIf I have one criticism of this book it's the final chapter's prescription on how to roll back the damage caused by the Hamiltonians Prof DiLorenzo is a minarchist and believes that if we repealed the 16th income tax and 17th popular election of Senators Amendments abolished the Federal Reserve restored the doctrine of States Rights repealed all the laws that perverted the meaning of the Commerce Clause and so on we would be back to the Jeffersonian vision and presumably on the right track for good and all I'm just a bit cynical about the prospects for good government no matter what its size I say why not permantly castrate the central government and go all the way back to the Articles of Confederation as a first step After that why not convene an Anarchy Convention to figure out how to eliminate the scourge of government from our lives and our country foreverBut that's just me What do you think
