is correct. Modifications to eminent domain that allow the government to confiscate private land and give it to other private owners for the sole purpose that the latter will be paying more taxes (like practiced in New York) is especially absurd. I wish that in addition to "just compensation" there is an extra compensation for "pain and suffering" to original landowners that only peers (other property owners) can assess in court.
