The following article, Constitution Day 2021: Celebrating The Counter-Revolution That Changed The World, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Often, revolutions are followed by counter-revolutions. The Russian revolution, which was led by capitalists against the Tzar, was quickly followed by a takeover by the communists who established a strong-arming dictatorship. The French Revolution to overthrow the monarchy and create a republic was followed by the dictatorship of Napoleon. Even here in the United States, a revolution designed to move away from the despotic government of the British was followed by a counter-revolution. But unlike the French and Russians, rather than going back to a different form of the same tyranny they just uprooted, the American counter-revolution was an adjustment meant to guarantee the freedoms earned in its fight against the British. Every year on September 17th, we celebrate Constitution Day, and the counter-revolution called the United States Constitution.
