Bastiat on unfair competition

Some things never change, and whining manufacturers (and the workers they employ) who want the government to protect them from competition is one of those things.

Here is the most excellent parody by French classical economist (and classical liberal - go team!) Frederic Bastiat of a petition from French candlemakers asking for assistance in fending off the unfair competition of the sun.
