I'm seeing a trend here, big name companies are trying to own every water source they can. For example, the ceo of Nestle has stated that ''Access to Public Water should not be a public right.'' Do you think water should be privatized by companies ?

RXR.: No way. Water is, as you rightly say, a human right .
I'm attempting to be #1 Judge and #1 forum poster here.

Tejretics: Say that to the Nestle Ceo.

RXR.: Well I mean that the government should still maintain a part, but the private sector should be able to participate as well.

RXR.: You must've meant to say "Access to private water should not be a human right", right?

There's one problem with them purchasing water sources which are on Government land: the Government doesn't have a right to sell it.

A think the UN should irrigate farmland in poorer areas around the globe. This would reduce bad farming practices and the rapid exhaustion of water supplies that leaves many nations in drought.

admin: Interests would be protected. The waters purity would always be insured. That is a corparation would be protecting their supply.

Teaistooshort: Lol, water is a resource that will always be in demand. Capitalists will guarantee the lowest water quality they are allowed to have because it is cheaper.

Blackflag: That is not good business. Nor is it accurate. Are you suggesting they add some substance x to inflate their supply? I would not buy dirty water.

Teaistooshort: So how are you going to drink..

My actual point was that water companies don't have to maximize quality on an item you are forced to buy anyways
