Privatization of Water

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

As we allow individuals and private entities to control resources, we bring forward the day we will have little or no access.

This is an obscenity.

The misuse of public trust and resources by individuals and corporations is a world-wide and ongoing issue.
The issue at hand is the proposed privatization of Water systems by the state of New Jersey. Now why should we care? World-wide this is being allowed to happen. The rationale is that corporations can better deal with aging infrastructure and inefficient delivery systems. The facts do not bear out this argument. Corporations consistently seek the cheapest, most short-term, often socially detrimental, and least environmentally sustainable approach.

As individuals we need to be aware and vote with ballots, our voices, and our wallets.
