 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29256427


YES! LOL.

So many good ones,OP. Frederic Bastiat "The Law" comes to mind.

Bastiat's great passions were liberty and economics. He tried until his death to convince those who would listen, that the ideas are inseparable.

If you don't like God mentioned in any works, you won't like this, because He is referred to. Example:

"It is not because men have made laws, that personality,
liberty, and property exist. On the contrary, it is
because personality, liberty, and property exist beforehand,
that men make laws. What, then, is law? As I have
said elsewhere, it is the collective organization of the individual
right to lawful defense.

Nature, or rather God, has bestowed upon every one
of us the right to defend his person, his liberty, and his
property, since these are the three constituent or preserving
elements of life; elements, each of which is rendered
complete by the others, and that cannot be understood
without them. For what are our faculties, but the extension
of our personality? and what is property, but an
extension of our faculties?
If every man has the right of defending, even by force,
his person, his liberty, and his property, a number of men
have the right to combine together to extend, to organize
a common force to provide regularly for this defense.
Collective right, then, has its principle, its reason for
existing, its lawfulness, in individual right; and the common
force cannot rationally have any other end, or any
other mission,....."

"The Law" can also be listened to on You Tube. Many of the thoughts though, need to be given some thought, which isn't as easily done by listening as reading. Still, FWIW, it'll give you an idea of whether or not you're interested:

Thank you all, agree, I love "The Law", have bought dozens of copies over the years and passed them out to friends and relatives, it is an important book.
Many of these recommendations are great, some I have some I don't and will get them. Lord of the flies is a good one, I forgot about it. Thanks again to everyone, GLP is great.
