Ok so we just survived the release of Halo Reach and now there is a new video game to master: Nail Household Fighting Against Demolition Squad
Note the hair curlers?
Apparently this is popular online video game in China reflects one of the downfalls of rapid economic growth there: eminent domain – government taking back private property from it’s citizens for the greater good.
Eminent domain was expanded to include the benefit of private development in the KELO et al. v. CITY OF NEW LONDON et al. case a few years ago which expanded the definition to include the benefit for private development and touched a nerve since property rights are one of the most cherished rights of US citizenship.
Now expand that concept to millions of people and you have an idea of the scope of eminent domain property takings in China.
