"Old World Unlimited Government"

Shredding the U.S. ConstitutionOver at Taki's Magazine, Dr. Kevin R. C. Gutzman laments how the Constitution of those United States is ending.

I have no doubt Dr. Gutzman is an excellent constitutional scholar. However, he ends his article with the following paragraph:

New in America, but old everywhere else. It seems that the Constitution is stone, cold dead, and no one even notices its absence anymore. America, like the Old World countries of 1789, has unlimited government. My unhappy guess is that we will soon see what it is worth.
If only! If only what we were getting is Old World “unlimited” government!
