Hier widersprach Hofstadter allerdings ganz vehement Boorstin und stellte die wahrhaft revolutionären Aspekte der Amerikanischen Revolution dieser Ansicht entgegen:

„Certainly the pattern of the American Revolution was different from that of the Puritan, French, and Russian revolutions. But will it do to conclude that since Americans were in this sense born free, they had no revolution at all? .. If we conclude that the American Revolution lacked a true revolutionary character because of the traditionalism of its ideas, we may miss a vital point. This Revolution represented the inheritance of the most radical ideas in Western civilization ... it took the demand for popular government out of the realm of slogans and rallying cries and showed that it was actually susceptible to being translated into living institutions and being made to work. If our test for a revolution is the formation of a radically new ideological system, or regicide, or a widespread lethal terror, the American Revolution will not qualify. But if our criterion is the accelerated redistribution of power among social classes or among various social types, a pragmatic disrespect for vested interests, the rapid introduction of profoundly important constitutional changes, we must reconsider it." [FN 263]

[FN 263: R. Hofstadter, op. cit., S. 459-460.]

Die wesentliche Kritik an Boorstins und Hartz` Versionen der „Consensus History" ist [...] überhaupt von Hofstadter vorgebracht worden [...]

Mit Recht hat er beiden Autoren vorgeworfen, grundlegende Konfliktmuster [...] übergangen zu haben - so die wahrhaft revolutionären Aspekte der Amerikanischen Revolution, [...]

[FN 95: Bezeichnend dafür ist eine Passage wie die folgende aus Hofstadter: Progressive historians (s. Anm. 5), 459f.: „Certainly the pattern of ihe American Revolution was different from that of the Puritan, French, and Russian revolutions. But will it do to conclude that since Americans were in the sense born free, they had no revolution at all? Oddly enough, I believe our answer to this question will be clearer and more exact if it is properly equivocal. If we conclude that the American Revolution lacked a true revolutionary character because of the traditionalism of its ideas, we may miss a vital point. This Revolution represented the inheritance of the most radical ideas in Western civilization ... it took the demand for popular government out of the realm of slogans and rallying cries and showed that it was actually susceptible to being translated into living institutions and being made to work. If our test for a revolution is the formation of a radically new ideological system, or regicide, or a widespread lethal terror, the American Revolution will not qualify.]
