QOTD: Bastiat on Plunder

Fantastic quote from Bastiat:

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Frederic Bastiat, French writer and economist, as quoted by Bill Moyers.
