Warning Label on Constitution

Wilder Publications warns readers of its reprints of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers, among others, that "This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."

    Which is of course true - the whole "slaves counting for 3/5 of a person" thing, or women not getting the vote until 1920, for instance - but no doubt there are people who'll get in a huff about it.
