It is usually shorter in length compared to a full book and is often used to present concise and focused ideas.

This implies that government is not a separate entity or a group of individuals, but rather a representation of the will and authority of the people. According to Bastiat, the power and legitimacy of the government come from the consent and authorization of the citizens it governs. Therefore, the government should act in the best interests of the people and be accountable to them.

      Clay to the potter

      The creator to the creation

    Correct Answer
    C. Clay to the potter
    Explanation
    In 'The Law', Bastiat mentions that the relationship between the public and the legislator becomes like the relationship between clay and the potter. This analogy implies that the legislator has the power to shape and mold the public according to their own will, just as a potter shapes clay. The legislator is seen as the one who has control and authority over the public, determining their rights and freedoms. This analogy highlights the potential danger of giving too much power to the legislator and the need for limitations and checks on their authority.
