The Law - Frederic Bastiat First published in June of 1850, when France was turning to radical socialism. Many of these socialist-fascist ideas that devastated the citizens of France are being embraced by America today. Bastiat, an economist and Assembly Deputy, explained each socialist fallacy as it was presented. French society, however, ignored his logical warnings and embraced the socialist program of envy.
