Allow me to re-post my original item, as it's CRUSHING SIGNIFICANCE seems to have passed over the heads of the squabbling masses, like a combine harvester passes over ants. I have included the original links, and mirrored them to old-media establishment sites (local print journalists, broadcast journalists, educational institutions, etc).



Water is a public utility...

Temporarily. Water is the exciting growth market in soft commodities for the next 100 years. If markets continue unabated there will be no publicly-owned water on planet earth in a century. It happened when Bechtel went into Bolivia and raped the nation's balance sheet, then monetized the aquifers and took ownership of them as collateral in their agreement. Luckily, South Americans love breaking stuff so they went out and stunk the place up enough to make Bechtel give up. (mirror for the <120s).

Oh. And this includes rainwater. And it is already happening in your once-great nation:

(mirror for the <120s).

Now. We decide. Oppose the monetization of the most basic natural resource: water?
Or suckle on the modernist teat of the corporate provider gods?

Maybe it's the 120-170s that are the expendables?

This is just getting stupid, of course not.

I would like a reputable source for this claim.

Are you arguing that people with an IQ over 120 are incapable of manual labor?

Absolutely. They consider themselves "above" heavy work.

The egotist will always look at the messenger and not the message itself.

Here at anus we put personalities to one side and ask people to look at the substance and not the personality cults.
It is difficult to not be seduced by the dramas of the ego - it's how you are programmed to respond by your TV.

They always say be careful what you wish for, because it never turns out as you expect. There are many more manual labour and functionary jobs that need to be done than there are requirements for philosophers, rocket scientists, stock analysts or bio-tech engineers. Maybe it's the 120-170s that are the expendables? Leave the super-genius 175+ to run the show for the manual labourers?

Everyone chooses to blame a group they aren't a part of. It's a depressingly human trait and so very, very ordinary.

I heard that they all got into rap metal and wore bandanas now.
Is this fact?

If you post your complaints here, it has a chance of being acted upon, where if you snipe passively in other threads, it's just chaff and gets ignored.

It's my opinion that if you shit on enough pansies, an oak tree might grow.


That might sound clever, but really it means nothing.

Equal footing in that $5 buys the same amount of water no matter who it comes from.
I understand this point. But it's why I made that 'Little Child Vs Mike Tyson' comparison in my earlier post.

The forum is a work of fiction and an egotistical enterprise for the many fractured facets of the administrator's psyche. If they feel they are being excluded from a topic of conversation, they will butcher it at birth.

Once you are aware of this fact, (for fact it is) you should enjoy your years at death camp anus.

That's a very good point.  Perhaps we could be said to be living in some inverse-capitalism, a system based on the distinct lack of capital while still trying desperately to pretend that there is a real basis for wealth?

That's probably the best way to approach it, in order to keep a healthy mind and discard the falsities.
As you say, it is inverted rather than collapsed, because production and trade has not collapsed. In fact, we a re approaching super-abundance.

Example:
‣The EU will pay farmers huge sums of cash to NOT grow any produce.
‣They do this to artificially maintain scarcity.
‣Artificial scarcity keeps prices fixed (politically correct vocabulary calls it: "stable") and maintains profit margins.
‣Artificial scarcity streamlines distribution systems as it prevents stockpiles.
‣Artificial scarcity avoids awkward questions such as "if production has become so efficient, why do we still pay high prices for our food?" and "If you are just going to store all that food until it rots away, shouldn't we donate it to impoverished nations instead?" etc.
‣Price fixing is a crime.
‣...Unless it is endorsed by a representative from a G20 member state.
