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.
