MY WORK CITED: I’m pleased to note that my essay on the arrest and prosecution of “Russian” oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, “The Khodorkovsky Affair,” has been cited in The Cardozo Journal of International and Comparative Law.

THE MAIN DEFENSE the Founders set up to protect Americans from the tyranny of kings — and the tyranny of the majority — was the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
It says, in effect, that the central government possesses only those powers expressly granted by the Constitution and no other powers whatever. And that is how it was understood and applied until the second Roosevelt demanded and received Lenin-like economic power (“for our own good,” of course) and supine judges allowed it despite its obvious illegality.
