The essay in this booklet (76 pages) was first published more than a hundred-fifty years ago in the year 1850 and it will still be read, when another century has passed. Really fundamental.

Quotes from The Law: "Citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free." and "The state is a fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else." and "We must wait until we have learned by experience -perhaps cruel experience- to trust in the state a little less and in mankind a little more."
