    The Law was originally published as a pamphlet in French in 1850 by Frederic Bastiat. It is his most famous work and was written two years after the third French Revolution of 1848. It defines, through development, a just system of laws and then demonstrates how such law facilitates a free society. Bastiat was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly.

    First published as a pamphlet in 1850 in response to the socialist-communist plans and ideas being adopted in France at that time, The Law remains equally relevant today, as the same ideas are now sweeping America.

    Escrito no ano da morte do autor, A lei é um bom diagnóstico da situação da França pós-revolucionária com relação as ideias de lei e justiça promovida por certos filósofos. Para ele, a Lei deve proteger o indivíduo, a liberdade, e a propriedade privada. Infelizmente, essa mesma lei pode ser pervertida e posta a serviço de interesses particulares, tornando-se, então, um instrumento de espoliação. É dessa maneira que Bastiat analisa o funcionamento do Estado, esta "grande ficção através da qual todos se esforçam para viver às custas dos demais".
