This review is from: The Law (Paperback)
You can perhaps tell this was written in the days of the quill rather than the word processor, but in "The Law" Bastiat produces one of the early push-backs against rampant statism. It's an easy and worthwhile read. A quote from the book which neatly encapsulates it:
" This question of legal plunder must be settled once and for all, and there are only three ways to settle it:
1 -- The few plunder the many.
2 -- Everybody plunders everybody.
3 -- Nobody plunders anybody. "
Seems clear enough to me and in pamphlet form it is neither expensive nor time-consuming.
