The Law, by Bastiat
Member Price: USD $1.89
"Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance ... just one chance ... to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... our freedom!"

--- William Wallace, in the film 'Braveheart'

Bastiat's The Law

Fredric Bastiat's "The Law" is a fundamental classic in the study of Liberty and free markets, and reading - or re-reading - its profound words are essential to understanding the freedom philosophy, in theory as well as in practice.

"The Law" speaks profoundly and presciently as well to the many very real challenges that continue to face us in a world that still remains, now as then, largely un-free.

Now available!  For a limited time, you can download the entire text of The Law  for free in a special beautifully formatted PDF edition, for printing out or reading on your PDF-capable device.
