Eminent Domain EssayRuby Dunmore Mr. Chase/ Period 15/20/19The idea of eminent domain is an extremely controversial topic in communities today. Governments who believe they have complete authority over lands are stripping landowners of everything they have toiled over for generations. The poor, working class people are even more affected by this. Even though the 5th amendment the land of the common people, governments still exploit them for their own personal benefit. Corporatism, the idea that government and businesses should not work together, greatly sums up the argument against eminent domain. According to corporatism in Source B, government and businesses do not work well together because they have different motives. The government is just looking or economic gain, not for what will benefit the community and the businesses within it. Because of this, the government will take control, “steering the ship” while small businesses simply “row,” accomplishing nothing in the end (Carney).
