In a discussion or quiz, ask (1) Do you have any stake in this issue?; (2) Are you sympathetically representing the viewpoint of others?


After short notice, the federal government used eminent domain to procure land for a interstate rail system. This rail system will shorten commute times, increase local commerce, and provide jobs. However, long-time residents were displaced.

How do you conclude whether the benefits of the new rail outweighs the cost? Do you have a personal stake in this issue if it happened in your community? If you were a resident or a commuter?
