Made me think of "The Law" by Frédéric Bastiat. The difference between illegal plunder and legal plunder.

I guess this is as good a time for a plug as any. If you haven't read "The Law", it is well worth the couple of hours time. It was written in 1850, is freely available on the web. and It is fairly short. The author talks about the purpose of law and how legal authority tends toward giving itself a different set of laws to live by, and plunders those it rules. Significant writing.

I once lent a copy of it to a coworker... and three days later he had ordered a bulk pack of printed copies to hand out to family, friends and neighbors. My father always kept copies around the house too, to hand out to people.

You should read it, because it has been trending on Facebook and Twitter since 1850; and if you don't, you will suffer from the Fear Of Missing Out on what all the smart people are reading and talking about! :roll: ...... :hysterical:
My grandfather said, "Always use your head!".
I told him, "I want to pound nails!"
He said, "Best use a hammer instead."

Read it once several years ago. Should dig it out and read it again. Very good book.
