Dial 999

Bastiat and his books

On June 30, 1801, Frédéric Bastiat was born. Bastiat became one of the most important French Liberal School economists, following Condilliac and Jean-Baptiste Say, best known for his books Economic Harmonies and Economic Sophisms and two monographs, “The Seen and the Unseen,” and “The Law.” He was a brilliant stylist and perceptive critic of state-managed trade. His influence on conservative, libertarian and “limited-government thought” has been vast.

The emergency number of “999” was introduced in London, June 30, 1937, the first of its kind — arguably the best innovation in better government service in modern times.

    Our new Department of Education (ne Ministry of Truth) will soon leave Bastiat in the dusty archives of lower levels of some old printed libraries. His ideas are far too threatening to make part of the indoctrination that is now public educashun. For history to be successfully repeated, the general public must not be warned.
