Eminent Domain = Tyranny
Here is the story. Ayn Rand is turning in her grave on this one. The government of a town in Connecticut is trying to steal private land because it is in the "public interest." Another case of elitism run rampant. "We know what is best for the city as a whole, so we are going to take your property and redistriubte it to another private party for development." The Supreme Court is about to hear this case, which the ARI has written an op-ed about here.
