    GOVERNMENT PIRATES: The Assault on Private Property Rights ¿ And How We Can Fight It

    Don Corace, Author Reviewer, Floy Lilley for American Land Foundation and Liberty Matters Harper © 2008, 249 pages, $14.95 (ISBN 978-0-06-166143-3) Blistering Pitch from Corace Don Corace is fired up. With all the punch of his past blistering pitches, Corace strikes at the bad guys. He slams thieves, despots and extortionists across the country. But all of his bold actions stop short of getting the bad guys behind bars. Why? Because the bad guys ARE the law. The thieves ARE the judges. The extortionists ARE the government agency bureaucrats. The despots ARE the elected county officials. American ownership of property is being viciously attacked by the very civil servants who each took Constitutional oaths of office to protect that property and liberty and life. GOVERNMENT PIRATES promises us understanding of this unanticipated horror, action plans readers can participate in and legislative reform strategies. This book delivers on all three promises. Crooks Exposed Corace first focuses on the mangled mess of current eminent domain policy. He instructs that Kelo¿s general plundering of the politically less powerful, particularly minority communities, has left every property ripe for the plucking. He reflects proper disdain upon the legal outcome of that pathetic ruling which declares that an increase of tax revenues to a county is now a `public use.¿ Corace is nothing short of courageous, or cavalier, to expose the chief culprits of out-of-control law to be federal and Supreme Court judges. But Corace is quick to teach us about all the takings that are disguised as something else, such as regulations. He includes all of the No-Compensation Takings and Pay-to-Play-Takings that happen through local zoning, through scams called `redevelopment,¿ and through regulation of wetlands and endangered species. Part IV, dealing with Endangered Species, is of great personal interest. Fred Purcell¿s battle with cave bugs was a battle our American Land Foundation and Liberty Matters just had to join. We¿re proud to be a significant part of Links & Resources in print and online. Corace¿s efforts enhance our own. First Empathy, Then Outrage Corace tells the personal stories of scores of victims, making each targeted property owner a friend whose fate is shared. Each tale is an obituary of liberty. Be outraged at the plunderers disguised as our protectors. Fight them.
