Meet the Author: Woody Holton, Tue 10/9/07
By Bert Gambini, WBFO
East Aurora, NY – Woody Holton - Unruly Americans and the Origins of the Constitution
Tuesday, October 9th at 7 p.m.
Roycroft Inn, East Aurora
If not to protect civil liberties and the freedom of the people, what motivated the framers? In Unruly Americans and the Origins of the Constitution, Holton provides the startling discovery that the primary purpose of the Constitution was, simply put, to make America more attractive to investment. And the linchpin to that endeavor was taking power away from the states and ultimately away from the people. In an eye-opening interpretation of the Constitution, Holton captures how the same class of Americans that produced Shays' Rebellion in Massachusetts (and rebellions in damn near every other state) produced the Constitution we now revere.
