About the Book

Frédéric Bastiat wrote a book titled The Law (La Loi) in 1850. "Each of us has an inherent right - from God - to protect his person," writes Bastiat in The Law. To protect this right, the State "substitutes a common force for individual forces." When the rights of the person are violated, the law is twisted. when it violates one's ability to protect oneself from attempts by others to pass legislation that steals his money or property.Socialism muddles the line separating the state from society. According to Bastiat, a government has no lawful authority beyond what each person would have individually since it solely consists of the individuals who are part of it or who give it its authority. The protection of life, liberty, and private property is the primary goal of the government. The justice that law was intended to uphold has been destroyed via its application. Unprincipled people who desire to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others without danger now have access to the collective force. And in order to penalize justifiable defense, it has turned it into a criminal.

About Author

Frederic Bastiat

Claude-Frédéric Bastiat was a French economist, writer, and member of the French Liberal School. He was born on 30 June 1801 in Bayonne, Aquitaine, a port town on the Bay of Biscay. His work The Law, in which he made the case that the law should safeguard rights like private property rather than "plunder," made him the most well-known author. His mother passed away when he was seven years old, and his father, Pierre Bastiat, was a well-known businessman. He acquired academic interests in a variety of subjects, including politics, philosophy, and religion. Bastiat died in 1850 from TB, most likely while on one of his trips around France. Before passing away on December 24, 1850, he muttered "the truth" twice. He stated in The Law, "I shall preach this idea with all the might of my lungs till the day of my death. "Bastiat passed away in Rome and is buried at San Luigi dei Francesi in the heart of the city. On his deathbed, he stated that his close friend Gustave de Molinari, who published Bastiat's book The Law in 1850, was his spiritual heir.
