The Law

I'm not sure if I've ever posted this on my blog, but it's a very good and quick read. Bastiat makes some great points, and, 170+ years later, his The Law holds up pretty well. You can read it online here.

Someone was asking about a quick, first-read to understand why government should be limited. This little book was the first that came to mind. There are a lot of other books, though, that entertained me, as well.

I particularly liked Rose Wilder Lane's Give Me Liberty. You can read it here. She's the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder of Little House on the Prairie fame. I like that the daughter of Laura Ingalls was a communist in Russia around the time of the Bolshevik Revolution, a good distance from her Mom's Little House. Her story is pretty interesting.
