Great quote from Bastiat.
I'm very proud he was French and warned generations yet to come in his time.
He alone redeems a lot of our French revolution there is really nothing much to be proud of, otherwise.
He'd certainly not believe his eyes seeing the world we live in, especially after all his warnings.
What does that tell you, btw ? In 16 years spent in the French public education system I never heard of him before stumbling upon his writings in my 20s.
Hint : expect Jefferson and Thoreau to disappear from the official public education programs in just a few years... if not done yet.
"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
