Show-Me Institute Book Club: Join Us This Wednesday
Frederic Bastiat once wrote:
Now, legal plunder can be committed in an infinite number of ways. Thus we have an infinite number of plans for organizing it: tariffs, protection, benefits, subsidies, encouragements, progressive taxation, public schools, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed profits, minimum wages, a right to relief, a right to the tools of labor, free credit, and so on, and so on. All these plans as a whole — with their common aim of legal plunder — constitute socialism.
Provocative enough for your tastes? Do you vehemently disagree? Is Bastiat a kook? Come join us for spirited discussion and snacks this Wednesday; Bastiat is our topic.
The Show-Me Institute’s Book Club meets the second Wednesday of each month at our headquarters, located at 4512 West Pine Blvd. in the Central West End. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. and typically last until 8:30 or so. See link for more information.
Please bring a friend. Hope to see you there.
