Frederic Bastiat explains the limitations of gov't through this very clear role of it. Gov't cannot give that which it does not posses. The government's realm is that of justice and you cannot expect it produce prosperity no more than you can expect a carpenter to fix cars or a miner to build houses. Mr. Bastiat purposes a society where the economy controls the values of products, the law denies all forms of injustice towards a mans rights and the government is not a bureaucracy of special interest groups to meddle in social and economic affairs.

Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. As a Deputy to the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Bastiat was studying and explaining each socialist fallacy as it appeared. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following - the Revolution of February 1848. And he explained how socialism must inevitably degenerate into communism. But most of his countrymen chose to ignore his logic.
If Bastiat were alive today, he would be disappointed with our failure to keep the law within its proper domain.
Frederic Bastiat could have easily been a fellow traveler of the signers of our Declaration of Independence. The signers’ vision of liberty and the proper role of government was captured in the immortal words: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. If Bastiat were alive today, he would be disappointed with our failure to keep the law within its proper domain. Over the course of a century and a half, we have created more than 50,000 laws.
