Nestlé CEO Doesn’t Think Water is a Basic Right, Should be Privatized

Leave a comment

I found the original post and this video on Crooks and Liars. The absolute hubris of this guy is breathtaking. I guess we peons have no right to water, we need him and the great Nestlé Corporation to control it and portion it out to us – at a cost.  My sentiments are with this guy:

Boycott nestle, and if you ever come across this fucker in the desert dying of thirst, remind him “it’s not a right”, then dump your canteen out in front of him, and leave his ass to die.

Another commenter points out that much of the water supply in the US has already been privatized:

This video vividly shows how big corporations have consolidated and monopolized the workforce and the market. Privatizing water under corporate control is already widespread in America by the exponentially increasing creation of public-private-partnerships (PPP’s). These PPP’s are thinly veiled government take-overs by big corporations, such as Nestle, Monsanto, etc .

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
