Eminent Folly

In the most recent outrage over the abusive use of eminent domain, the Village of North Hills in New York is attempting to seize a private golf course. Amazingly, the mayor of the town attempting this heist has said that the government should be able to take over the course simply because, if public, it would be “a nice amenity.”
With everything else going on in the world, it is easy to forget that less than one year ago the US Supreme Court decided that any government should be able to take anyone’s property, for most any reason, at any time they like. We cannot rest until every state and the federal government has acted to restore individual property rights.
