Eternal Life

The New York Times editors come out against private property. Their editorial calls the ruling
a setback to the "property rights" movement
with the scare quotes theirs. The Times has completely marginalized private property to a "movement" and not an unalienable right endowed by our Creator.

The Times then notes that the city of New London is shrinking. This is the real story. This is not about property, it is about government's rights. Rather than contract the government must use the power of eminent domain to bring business to the city to preserve the size of city government. There is no exit for government. This is the same reason that failing schools must be preserved rather than exiting allowing students to move on to better schools, and why Social Security must be preserved in its current form. Government must not contract. The court has ruled that government's rights come before God-given rights.

No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. So government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!
