By Frederic Bastiat
"It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder."
Published in the last year of his brief, embattled life, The Law is Bastiat's most famous workand justly so. A masterpiece of style, brevity and common sense, The Law concisely presents the classic moral case for liberty and limited government. A classic examination of the distinction between "the law" and "the law perverted."
