Italy: Give up Your Properrty to Migrants or Go to Jail

Hat tip Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes

Things are getting really bad in Italy, where the government is now planning to requisition property from ordinary Italian citizens in order to lodge migrants. And for those Italians who do not cooperate, they risk jail and permanent forfeiture of their property. Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes are posting an article from Il Giornale which I translated for them. It is scary. The Viminale Plan is that drafted by the government to settle migrants throughout the country.

In Europe, it has always been traditional and customary that armies are quartered on the civilian population. We have a different view of these things in the USA, and the practice is singled out for specific mention in our Constitution. So I am not surprised that a European nation is following traditional European notions of property rights and the prerogatives of the state.

And the US Army took over homes in occupuied German cities as well. That is a bad analogy however. We are not talking about armies unless you consider the illegal hordes invading Europe to be an army.

I was thinking of the state having power to seize private property for public use.
