The Law, by Frederic Bastiat is a classic work of political philosophy taken from the history of the human quest for a government that works. It was written by Bastiat in the early 1800’s after the establishment of The United States, which greatly influences his work. It reflects the reasoning of our Founding Fathers in the establishing of a new form of government.

And when the law acted outside these bounds it would be…

Timeless and illuminating, but sometimes little bit hard to read After reading all the comments on the content of this book with such a dominance of five stars, my expectation was maybe too high. This high expectation was probably the cause for not being stunned after reading this book and not giving it unconditional glory and perfect score. However, for anyone dealing with politics, economics and law this is a must read. A must read not for one time, but rather maybe once a year just to keep the idea of liberty and nature of governance fresh and accurate…
