Fom Alejandro Szita: “Dear Ed, this is just to let you know that your rendition of The Law by Monsieur Bastiat is the most extraordinary piece of enlightened knowledge I have yet studied. I have read many books, listened to many lectures, but this voice from the 1850s has a clarity of mind that I have never encountered so far. Thank you for bringing this knowledge to life.” This audio also is in Volume II of the Audio Archives.
