Product Overview

Audio Version of The Law: The Classic Blueprint for a Free Society by Frederic Bastiat as presented by the Ludwig von Misees Institute.

About the book, The Law: The Classic Blueprint for a Free Society.

The Law has been acclaimed for more than a century as the classic moral defense of individual liberty and limited government. Here is the timeless message of immutable principle – in the immortal words of one of history’s most courageous thinkers and brilliant writers.

In The Law, Bastiat states that "each of us has a natural right - from God - to defend his person, his liberty, and his property". The State is a "substitution of a common force for individual forces" to defend this right. The law becomes perverted when it punishes one's right to self-defense in favor of another's acquired right to plunder. Bastiat defines two forms of plunder: "stupid greed and false philanthropy". Stupid greed is "protective tariffs, subsidies, guaranteed profits" and false philanthropy is "guaranteed jobs, relief and welfare schemes, public education, progressive taxation, free credit, and public works". Monopolism and Socialism are legalized plunder which Bastiat emphasizes is legal but not legitimate.
