States Part 1 on the spine. From Wikipedia:"Claude Frédéric Bastiat (1801- 1850) was a French classical liberal theorist, political economist, and member of the French assembly. Bastiat asserted that the sole purpose of government is to defend and protect the right of an individual to life, liberty and property. From this definition, Bastiat concluded that the law cannot defend life, liberty and property if it promotes socialist policies, which are inherently opposed to these very things. In this way, he says, the law is perverted and turned against the thing it is supposed to defend."
