Kurzbeschreibung

This book has been specifically formated for the Amazon Kindle.

The Law, first published as a pamphlet in June, 1850. Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following -- the Revolution of February 1848. The same socialist-communist ideas and plans that were then adopted in France are now sweeping America. The explanations and arguments then advanced against socialism by Mr. Bastiat are -- word for word -- equally valid today. His ideas deserve a serious hearing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book but Kindle formatting is inconsistent 6. März 2011
Von Neil Chilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read this short book in a single sitting. Originally published in 1850, "The Law" is a surprisingly current analysis of the role of law in human society, and of the causation and negative effects of expanding the law beyond its proper role. It is a very succinct and punchy argument for the importance of liberty.

One note: Bastiat quotes at some length from contemporaries. The Kindle edition formats these quotes inconsistently, sometimes italicizing and sometimes not. Due to this inconsistency, I occasionally found it difficult to distinguish the quotes from Bastiat's own writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Never wrote an internet review in my life. 25. Dezember 2009
Von Luke Orem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book was absolutely amazing. I read it now, as a 27 year old military veteran trying to make sense of what is going on in the free market and I see we don't even have a free market. I get introduced to a couple crazy ideas about history predicting the mess we are in and I find things like "War is a Racket" and "The law" and I have to sit back and be amazed about how it took me 27 years to really look at how we got to where we are. So much wasted time thinking obscure thoughts for entertainment purposes. Thankfully things like that have stood the test of time for new generations to latch on to.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Economic book 17. März 2012
Von Steve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I read the "Communist Manifesto" recently that a friend lent to me. I learned a lot about communism from reading it. It made me even more glad that I am not a communist.

This same friend also lent me the book "The Law." After reading it, I decided to purchase it for reference. The book is about economic theory from a legal standpoint. I agree with the author's viewpoint to a great extent. It is a different way to explain capitalism.

I liked this book a lot. I highly recommend to others.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Against Legal Plunder 25. Mai 2009
Von Kevin Currie-Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What is the law? Politial economist Frederic Bastiat suggests that the law is a negative, rather than a positive, concept: law is not justice, but a safeguard against injustice. As humans, Bastiat says, have a natural right to person, liberty, and property, one of the key criteria of justice is that it safeguards people's persons, liberty, and property. Thus, the government's legitimate role is to prevent theft and incursion onto individuals' liberties.

Needless to say, this was not then, and is not now, happening. Governments do not generally seem to limit themselves to protecting individual liberty, but go well beyond this, mistakenly supposing that they can legislate their way to justice. Whether it is social justice, a particular moral code, "fair trade," etc, governments often feel that the people cannot be trusted to recognize their own interests; government must enforce people's adherence to the government's interest.

Bastiat's greatest insight in this book is the concept of legal plunder. He suggests that while every government everywhere recognizes that it is wrong to steal someone's property (no matter how noble one's intent), government gives itself a free pass to take property, often taking from one class to give to another. Bastiat asks repeatedly this rhetorical question (for we already know the answer): if I may not steal from you to give to my friend without legal consequence, why can the government do this? If it is not fair when I take your property without your consent, why is government exempt from moral outrage when it follows suit?

Bastiat wrote "The Law" shortly after the French revolution, but it is not exaggeration to say that this terse and clearly argued book is every bit as necessary today as it was then. As I write this, the United States Congress (the real robber barons?) are set to give General Motors ANOTHER four billion of our tax dollars. This is the very defnition of legal plunder, as government is doing exactly as Bastiat says: taking from one group and giving to another (in this case, tex dollars are being funneled to a for-profit business!). Legal plunder is as alive today as it was in Revolutionary France.

This is most certainly a book that everyone concerned with liberty should read (and at less than 100 pages, we SHOULD all be reading it). Bastiat lays a fantastic theoretical framework for the liberal (small "l") state that we have been moving further and further away from. I would also suggest that one read, as a companion to this, Bastiat's "Essays on Political Economy," for as this book discusses liberty from a legal point of view, the other discusses it from an economic point of view (and is very much a precursor to the Austrian school of rconomics.)

So, read it and get angry!

this publication is applicable now as much as it was when it was originally written. I recommend everyone read this regardless of your political affliciation. It's well written, easy to understand and gives a sound arguement.
