Yesterday (Friday, May 15), Ilya Somin and I debated whether the takings clause of the Constitution applies to coronavirus lockdown orders. (Because courts usually rule for the government, I championed a natural rights perspective to this question.)

I will share some of his questions, as well as a link to a recording of the event and my thoughts about the entire affair in the next day or two.
