    Now why did you leave that important part out?
    Because, despite the fact that compensation is given, the land is being taken against the will of the owner.

    they dispense the usual trite and stereotyped arguments against without having to really deal with the nuances and subtleties of individual positions.
    Exactly its a piece of cake to dismiss yer commie-lib machinations, they aren't even worth considering.

    Taking a person's land against his will. That is most definitely an initiation of aggression*.

    * Violation of or damage to another person's body; or trespass upon, damage to, or taking of something owned by another.

    And where do you get the belief that you own the land in the first place and the will of the supposed owner is equal to the powers of an all powerful god?

    Exactly..... and the reason it does not fit is that this one from Federalist - like many such right libertarian principles and beliefs - are constructed contrary to reality and the world we live in. They go through great mental gymnastics and all sort of mental contortions to come up with axioms that make no actual sense in the society we live in but are dishonestly constructed to simply justify their anti-government and anti-social extremist views.

    No, not really. As noted above. There is proper compensation.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Quite true. I went thought this earlier. He misses all the reasoning, the factual compensation, and the history behind such issues, and leaps straight to exaggeration.
