Step 1: Destroy Neighborhood. Step 2: Replace With Dump.

Eminent domain is for looters and thugs.

From Timothy Sandefur, via Reason, comes more fantastic news about the Kelo vs. New London case of 2005. These people don’t care that they kicked people out of their homes, destroyed their houses only to replace the property with, well, nothing at all. 91 acres sit, untouched, overgrown with weeds. Oh, and the city of Trumbull has designated one particular area a dump site.

This is insane, is it not? Whatever it is, it infuriates me. To no foreseeable end.

How can a city, a government body, get away with us? They say it’s for the good of the town, for the people. How can that be? They take my private property, destroy it, and replace it with garbage. In other words, they take what is useful and plentiful and rationally implemented, only to replace with what is utterly devoid of usefulness, fruitfulness and rationality.

It makes me sick to my stomach.
