Ministerial Declaration of The Hague on Water Security in the 21st - Library  

Here in the States, private investors have in some places succeeded in taking over community water supplies, in other places the communities have fought back against the sale of publicly held supplies realizing that this most important element of human survival should never be under the control of private corporations whose one and only duty is to make a profit for investors. 


As water has historically been deemed a human right and necessity, so much so that the Public Trust Doctrine was put on paper, how could anyone in good conscience believe water is, or promote water as, a tradable commodity?  How can there be so many callous and greedy individuals running around out there who would willingly see another human  thirst to death just so they can make a buck?  Apparently there are many.  


The Water Restoration Act 2007 relies heavily on promotion based on protecting the water supply from pollution, from terrorists, and of course “national security”.  The truth is it has nothing to do with any of these things.  The WRA will allow unfettered pollution with no recourse for communities or individuals and “trade illegal” treatment of local and state laws.  Before the entire water supply can be sold off to private interests the federal government must gain control of the entire water system. This is what the WRA will do.


This Act would be more aptly titled “The Water Confiscation Act” as this is exactly what is intended.  All it is set to do is to strike down the Public Trust Doctrine and facilitate the conversion of water from a basic human right into a commodity.  The only threat to “national security” here is from the government and the massive corporations who are behind it. 


I guess we shouldn’t be surprised by any of this.  After all, the Security & Prosperity Partnership refers to people as “human capital”.  I wonder how long it will be before they refer to us as a “needed commodity” and trade and sell us on the global market.


Control the food, control the water and you control the people.   I believe it was Henry Kissinger who first made this observation when speaking about the importance of depopulation through the use of eugenics.  Obviously good old Henry realized that overtaking the food and water supplies would go a long way in deciding who had a right to life.

Maude Barlow wrote a detailed book about the coming water crisis called:

Blue Gold: The Global Water Crisis and the Commodification of the World’s Water Supply


Although written in 1999, it is so relevant today that Ms. Barlow will be on tour during 2008 speaking about this and other issues.
