Comment: Water privatization isn't the issue.

Water privatization isn't the issue.

People don't have a right to water, no more than they have a right to land. What they do have is a right to an environment in which they are able to acquire land and water and then protect it.

If you own land on a lake, a portion of the lake becomes your property. If another person or corporation pollutes or drains the lake on their own side, yet it affects the quality or stability of your water, it is a destruction of your property.

The issue is that these corporations are in league with the government. They are using money and influence to get away with polluting and ravaging water sources that belong to OTHER PEOPLE. They are attempting to create artificial shortages where none naturally exist by lobbying to control entire bodies of water that others use and possess. It's sick.
