So right before the crash, I got a manilla envelope in the mail. Inside two books, one was Frederic Bastiat's "The Law". I began reading it immediately. This is a book I have been planning on reading. It did not disappoint. As I got into "The Law" a few pages, I was surprised how accurate his predictions were, of course I realized he wasn't predicting the future, but explaining what was happening in his own time. Things never change.
The other book is "Tyranny Busters, The Sham and Shame of the Federal Income tax" by Michael Benoit. The envelope containing the books is from Michael Benoit. I think he ran for Congress or something he mailed me a letter several months back. The envelope asks for a small donation to cover the cost of the books and shipping and I will pay it as i am going to keep the books. At the risk of spamming our beloved forum I thought it would be okay to give him a little publicity. I also wonder if he is a member here.
I really enjoyed Bastiat and plan on reading it again, many great quotes. Now I will have to get the rest of his works.
