  One Response to “2019-01-28 For Your Selection. Main emphasis: serious, the export of water.”

  1. BY EMAIL, FROM RENE (writing to “Paul”):

    First, I am very interested in the subject of water being outsourced to private enterprises like corporations that exist to maximize profits, not for the good of people. Why call me?

    Perhaps you already know about a book called ‘When corporations rule the world’, by David Korten. It is not science fiction!

    Business schools are currently professing that the corporate world is more efficient than government so they should play a part in ruling the world, just like the nazis and fascists said in the second world war.

    So we started asking questions. We found that corporations have no citizenship, so can’t be charged with treason, have the rights and privileges of humans but not the responsibilities of humans, they don’t DO democracy in their job description, (you know, government for the people, by the people and they, as I said before exist to maximize profits!)

    So water, being essential for human life, becomes a commodity, at the whim of those who would maximize profits as their reason for being is to charge as much as the market will bear. We have already seen the results when the giant Nestle company charges more than the price of gas, for something that covers most of the world. So we already know the results.

    The phrase that comes to mind is ‘looking for the grace of God in a (gangster den), right?

    By the way, you ask this just at a time in history when governments have been conned in to giving self-regulation to corporate entities !

    It is called ‘ regulatory capture’ and we the humans would be nuts to allow this. A further example of the danger of giving corporate rule for their profit, is John Kenneth Galbraith’s book, Economics and the Public Purpose, where he said that the corporations by their nature, will treat regulation as an enemy!

    If there is a war to save the humans from such a fate,we know now that war is a profit centre for the corporate world, just like cancer is also a profit centre and a cure for cancer and war is really unlikely to be cured as a result. In both cases, we the people, pay the costs in money and deaths!

    Another example, handed to the human race was Cochabomba Bolivia, where water control was imposed on the citizens. Read the story or call me back if the story becomes restricted access only.

    Another example of the foolishness of letting the corporations rule the world is Monsanto, now called Bayer to hide past sins of Monsanto ‘s genetic engineering, for profits, including terminator seeds, that have to be re-bought each year instead of planting some of last year’s crop, the next year.

    In answer to your survey, No, thanks, never ever, let corporations ‘manage water without a serious leash or control mechanism, administered by the people for the people, no self-regulation for corporations.
