Bastiat, INC.?

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?

Ron Paul is not...

... The modern day Thomas Jefferson, he is the modern day Frederic Bastiat. Spreading the message of freedom and real economics to the youth of his country.

No train to Stockholm.

Dr. Paul's record is already as much important, if not more,

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 :

librivox

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.
