Dear Wilder Publications,

One should never take this sort of story at face value, so I looked it up on Amazon, and my jaw dropped for two reasons.

  1. The linked disclaimer that the contents of The Federalist Papers “does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today”.
  2. The publisher’s claim of copyright on the material.

Both are most likely boilerplate, but they’re deeply clueless boilerplate. And they do indeed reflect a certain kind of modern values…
