The Law - Frederic Bastiat

If you haven't read or listened to it, you must must must must must. Maybe I am late to the game on this... but it is stunning in its verbal and moral clarity. And it was written by a french dude, Frederic Bastiat. And it was published, in the year of his death... in 1850. Eighteen. Fifty. And it could have been written this year and been just as relevant. It's only like 60 pages, and the free MP3's add up to two hours listening. Great for your commute.

A country full of people familiar with this work would resist socialism like an immovable object. It ought to be required reading by 8th grade. And again by 12th grade.

In private schools, of course ;-)

Please encourage others to read or listen.

I also ordered a paperback for my library.
