The Law - Frederic Bastiat - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Law:

The philosophy behind justice in our laws.

My favorite Frederic Bastiat quote from the book:

"Life, facilities, production -- in other words, individuality, liberty, property -- this is man."

Questions to ponder while reading The Law:

Are politicians exempt from the vices they legislate?

Do you believe in personal property?

My review of the book:

A great classical liberalism explanation.

Fundamental paradigm shifter.

Challenging concepts and language - take your time.
