    Emmiment Domain has gone awry.  It is now even used to take people's land and give it to private people to build shopping centres.

    Here is an article about the issue:

      That top one is about the same thing as the video.  There are some bigger questions involved.  First one is about city growth, and it is a problem with all our major cities, you have to pull in water.  The bigger the city gets, the more water you have to pull.  So how do we decide how big the city gets?  Because when they get to be the size of Dallas, you're going to have to have some kind of large organization that works on acquiring water.  When it goes south, you get things like Flint Michigan.  Nobody likes to lose property rights, no matter where they put that water pipeline is going to annoy somebody.  How would you handle it?

      Eminent domain has been used frankly illegally as far as I'm concerned, and it is why you have to stay on top of your local councils.  I particularly am against it in those cases where it is handed over to a developer.  That isn't what this particular video was about though, it was about putting in a municipal water line.  That should be what eminent domain is about.

    I didn't quite read it that way.  She wasn't taking about the poor there, she was talking about average citizens.  And this was just about laying a waterline.  Yeah, the rich can buy the government off.  Thank you Citizens United for making that even more possible.  But what this councilwoman was railing about was that you can't treat all people fairly.  The guy in question was going around the city council, and buying off politicians at the state level.  You'll never guess what party they probably were...
