Frederick Bastiat dismantles Socialism, the Nanny State, the Welfare State, Pro-Business Cronyism, and all the other forms of government interference in people's lives.
He destroys the perverse logic of the Do-Gooders who want to help one group or another because, somehow, it's the fair thing to do.
Bastiat shows that the result of all this protection and benevolence is to make people poorer and less free.
His lessons and logic are up to date and powerful. Amazingly, the book originally came out in 1850! The Law is a quick read for both the beginner and the neophyte...and one you'll choose to re-read.
