I wonder if under Chinese law they would be responsible for rebuilding the house if that dirt collapses? It's actually good to see that someone can refuse to move like that, in the good 'ol USA the gov can take your property even for commercial purposes.

It's China. The government will "dispose" of him and charge his family for the bullet.

That would go against an executive order.
On June 23, 2006 - on the one-year anniversary of the Kelo decision (see above), President George W. Bush issued an executive order stating in Section I that the Federal Government must limit its use of taking private property for "public use" with "just compensation", which is also stated in the constitution, for the "purpose of benefiting the general public." He limits this use by stating that it may not be used "for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken."

Why can't he just leave his home there and live elsewhere until they pay him?

And like most of what Bush has done it is full of hot air and/or BS. You see 2 things wrong in that order. 1. It only says Federal government, not state. The whole issue was small towns and cites taking land for wal-marts and such. 2. It states they must give "just compensation". Now who decides what "just compensation" is. Usually the ones that are taking the land.

Is he living in that house? How does he get down? That's a cool house now. He can make a Fortress.

Based on that quote though, it only applies to the federal government. It isn't the federal government that usually condemns people's land to sell to developers, it's the local government.
