What is mine could not be mine at anytime

The SCOTUS descision regarding eminent domain has been big today. Lots of analysis about what it could mean is going on; but what can be done to stop our worst fears from coming true?

I think the obvious solution is to amend the constitution to define what “Public Use” means and restrict it enough to put us back to what many of us believe is right. We shouldn’t even have to leave a hole to allow future developments. While we currently accept that public use means the likes of interstate freeways it is clear we can no longer leave loose definitions in this case. Any amendment must be specific in what it considers “public use” or we could be revisiting this issue in another generation.
