I Dislike Zoning Ordinances

ON PRINCIPLE as they restrict private property rights for the vaguest notion of the Greater Good. And, as we know, the — scorn quotes — “Greater Good” always ALWAYS results also in the greater ill, the greatest damage done to individual liberty.

Zoning ordinances are at the very least prior restraint and are arguably out-and-out violations of the Ninth Amendment, as the People should be presumed to reserve the right to Liberty. Seems to me the properly-couched argument would — or should — be a slam-dunk in court, and that the inspectors in this case should be prosecuted under 18USC242.
