Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Why don’t you reform yourselves? That task would be sufficient enough.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Is not liberty the destruction of all despotism – including, of course, legal despotism?”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “It is easier to show the disorder that must accompany reform than the order that should follow it.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose – that it may violate property instead of protecting it – then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “The balance of trade is an article of faith.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “The mission of law is not to oppress persons and plunder them of their property, even thought the law may be acting in a philanthropic spirit. Its mission is to protect property.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Sometimes the law places the whole apparatus of judges, police, prisons and gendarmes at the service of the plunderers, and treats the victim – when he defends himself – as a criminal.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “We hold from God the gift which includes all others. This gift is life – physical, intellectual, and moral life.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “And this is what has taken place. The delusion of the day is to enrich all classes at the expense of each other; it is to generalize plunder under pretense of organizing it.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Try to imagine a system of labor imposed by force that is not a violation of liberty; a transfer of wealth imposed by force that is not a violation of property rights. If you cannot do so, then you must agree that the law cannot organize labor and industry without organizing injustice.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Let us first of all frugality in government-peace and freedom we will have as a bonus.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Life, faculties, production-in other words, individuality, liberty, property-this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Trade protection accumulates upon a single point the good which it effects, while the evil inflicted is infused throughout the mass. The one strikes the eye at a first glance, while the other becomes perceptible only to close investigation.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on.”
Frédéric Bastiat Quote: “Law and Charity Are Not the Same.”
