In honor of Frederic Bastiat's 213th birthday, FEE is offering copies of his famous book, The Law, at previously unseen prices* today only:
5 books for $4.00
10 books for $7.00
50 books for $35.00
A box of 100 books for $65.00
The Law is Bastiat's timeless defense of classical liberalism. With his characteristically clear writing, Bastiat points out the flawed reasoning in his colleagues' arguments for overreaching government, while laying out the formula for the proper role of the state in a free society.
"It is not true that the function of law is to regulate our consciences, our ideas, our wills, our education, our opinions, our work, our trade, our talents, our pleasures. The function of law is to protect the free exercise of these rights, and to prevent any person from interfering with the free exercise of these same rights by any other person."
Happy birthday, Frederic Bastiat!
