Excellent article. If an individual forces another individual to hand over his property, we call it a crime. When a group of individuals do it, it's called legislation. Bastiat was right. When the government gets in the business of distributing things, there is no real practical limit to their power. Only in centrally planned economies do extreme deprivations of goods and services persist over long periods of time. Let the free market work.
