if anyone is unaware the supreme court ruled on a long standing eminent domain case in my hometown of new london ct. a whole neiborhood was razed to make room for something that hasn't even been planned yet. the court said it was ok for the government, in this case the city of new london to take possesion of the properties "if it were for the greater good" i remember hearing statements from the soviet union that pretty much sounded like that. for the collective good or for the good of the state. the area that was torn down has yet to have anything built on it except for a medium sized office building that remains half finished and vacant. just another case of big money stepping on the little guy with the governments help. what little rights we still have will slowly disappear. commrade

Actually, the US isn't moving specifically toward communism, if for no other reason than that communism has been viewed as something of a political obscenity in the US since the close of WWII. We are however moving toward something much like the government of the former Soviet Union, which wasn't true Communism either.

I prefer to call it anarcho/fascism. It's a system of government in which there are two distinct classes-- those who hold economic and/or political power and those who don't. Those who do hold power live under virtual anarchy-- they can do pretty much as they please with no fear of repercussions. Those who don't have any power are forced to live under the tyranny of an oppressive state whose primary function is to maintain the privileges of the upper class by demanding the labor of the lower class while denying them the rewards of that labor.

The most straightforward way to impose such a state is by way of Communism, since it starts with state control of all resources and state responsibility for the distribution of those resources. But since Communism could never be sold to the American people, the powers-that-be here have to play a far more complex game in order to coax us into that state. It's an ongoing and incremental process, but yes-- the new interpretation of eminent domain is indeed a part of it.
