Again, I wasn't answering

Again, I wasn't answering "who owns the water". I was answering "how are scarce resources allocated".

I'm not obfuscating the problem of "who owns it". I'm simply not addressing it. I was simply answering the specific question in the post above.

I find that it quite comical that the ones worried about conserving our resources usually attempt political maneuvers AGAINST the ones that ACTUALLY conserve our resources. It's like some people thought Dr. Seuss's "The Lorax" was a documentary, lol.

I agree with you on the mess the gov't made by the violation of property rights, FWIW.

"I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."
