Anniversary of Bastiat's Death


HERE LIES

FREDERIC BASTIAT


representative of the people to Parliament,
Correspondant of the Institute of France,
born in Bayonne in 1801,
died in Rome on 24th December 1850.

Parliament will miss such an enlightened and conscientious representative,
political economny, such an eminent exponent
of its purest doctrines and of the harmony of its laws.
His family will only find consolation for such a painful separation
in the memory of his Christian death


in pace

Here's to one of the greatest thinkers and writers of all time! The world is a much better place and can be even more improved if it followed Bastiat's principles.
