Book Description

2 Sep 2010
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain." - Frédéric Bastiat

5.0 out of 5 stars Literally the Libertarian Manifesto 26 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
Bastiat painfully and deliberately applies a smashing blow to the Socialists - 'the ones that want to legalize plunder'. Applying the principles of Life, Liberty and Law he makes a compelling case for a libertarian society and a free-market economy. Any aspiring Libertarian needs to read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Required for anyone today 1 April 2013
By Ante
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So brief, yet so full of substance. So old, yet so relevant and predictive of the future. So many of his predictions and accusations against socialism and its proponents have come true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep but interesting eye opening read 14 Oct 2012
By jjp8685
Format:Paperback
The book is written with an ease for the reader to follow! The views n conceptions are both inspiring n educational. Definite recommend read. Especially to precede 1984 by George Orwell.
