Eminent Domain is theft

Just a quick post tonight, mostly in reference to the ongoing protests against the proposed oil pipeline in North Dakota.  To me, this is not about Native American rights or the safety of such endeavors.  It is about the State’s use of Eminent Domain but also about the excessive property under the control of the Federal government, particularly in the West.  In a world in which individuals alone own property, massive projects like this would be impossible unless there was almost unanimous agreement as to its value.
