Anti-federalists were prophetic

Here's a link to the piece in the Register today by Gary Galles, who teaches economics at Pepperdine and has made something of a specialty of pieces filled with quotes by libertarian predecessors both well-known and undeservedly obscure. In this piece he argues that the anti-federalists, the Americans who opposed the Constitution because it granted too much power to the central government, which was likely to grow into something oppressive, were modest prophets. They had it right, Prof. Galles contends, except that they couldn't even imagine the reach of today's omnipresent warfare/welfare/nanny state.
