Albert J. Nock at The Ludwig von Mises Institute - from 1936, and still current today. The only difference is that today's Americans bend over a little further and take it up the ass a lot deeper.

But though Americans have always known how to make the old-time Flagellants look like amateurs at the business of scourging themselves, it is only in the last 20 years that they have really shown what they can do. The plagues of Egypt, the flies, frogs, hail, locusts, murrain, boils, and blains are as nothing by comparison with the curses they have brought down on themselves in that time, all of their own free will and accord. They diddled themselves into a war to make the world safe for democracy -- and look at democracy now!
