So. Was 1776-ffd. Just a Waste of Blood?

Here's the takeaway line from a review of a book on Administrative Law (which is what you ACTUALLY have to obey in the US.)

...“Hamburger makes an impressive case that modern administrative law owes its lineage to claims of monarchical prerogative and civil law absolutism that were precisely the ideas that the American revolution was trying to reject.”...

For those of you who still believe the Civics 101 crap you studied in grade school--my sympathy.  We are far, far, beyond that stuff.

And the 'beyond' is far, far, worse than you ever imagined.  Food for thought on this 4th of July, eh?
