Did Bastiat believe that corporations have a right to exist? A corporation is an entity endowed by the State with legal immunity for corporate officers from personal liability for their actions, like politicians are endowed by the State, but the citizens are not. These privileged corporations then compete in the so-called "free market" against mom and pop businesses who, unlike corporations, must bear personal responsibility for their actions. Corporations ARE governments -- they have a Board of Directors, elected by shareholders, who appoint a President and Vice-President. Does Bastiat champion corporations against the People, or does he abhor them?
"Frédéric Bastiat : A Man Alone", by George Charles Roche, 1971 :

No train to Stockholm.
I agree. I'd even venture :
Dr. Paul's record is already as much important, if not more, than Bastiat's.
For, he started and continued it for forty years in a row, non-stop :
... and ongoing, The School Revolution : http://www.dailypaul.com/298676
librivox has some of Bastiat's books. Some of the chapters are read by the most horrible monotone author. Even through this dry voice the listening is pleasant.
Mises.org has reader voices I found tolerable :
