Who Owns the Water?

We all know the terms, 'globalization' and 'privatization' since they have been bantered about for the last 20 to 30 years. Both terms have policy implications for governments around the world and for all of the people around the world. The principles of globalization and privatization are embraced by both major political parties, and there is no debate. These principles constitute an religious outlook that is above challenge and which are jealously guarded by the 'high-priests' of this new pagan religion, that is also entwined with 'environmentalism'. Thus we have a new trinity of faith that guides action producing a new ethics. But from a practical point of view what these terms mean in reality is corporate ownership and control of all of the resources of the world environment. This includes food, air and water, the key elements upon which human life depends.

A traditional folksong went:

"If heaven was a place that money could buy,

The rich would live and the poor would die."

No, not just fluoride, which is bad enough - much of our drinking water, in the U.S., Canada and U.K. at least, is contaminated with Prozac and a "vast array" of other drugs.

Study Finds Traces of Drugs in Drinking Water in 24 Major U.S. Regions
A vast array of pharmaceuticals — including antibiotics, anti-convulsants, mood stabilizers and sex hormones — have been found in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans, an Associated Press investigation shows.To be sure, the concentrations of these pharmaceuticals are tiny, measured in quantities of parts per billion or trillion, far below the levels of a medical dose. Also, utilities insist their water is safe.But the presence of so many prescription drugs — and over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen — in so much of our drinking water is heightening worries among scientists of long-term consequences to human health....
Prozac in Tap Water
Nine different drugs were found in water samples near 20 different water treatment plants across Ontario, Canada. The drugs were "acidic pharmaceuticals", which include ibuprofin and neproxin (painkillers), gemfibrozil (cholesterol-lowering medicine), and prozac (anti-depressant). The area with the highest levels of contamination were from locations near sewage treatment plants, suggesting that the chemicals are getting into our water supply from our own bodily wastes! Areas that tested the lowest were plants whose sourcing water was from groundwater or lakes...
Prozac 'found in drinking water'
Traces of the antidepressant Prozac can be found in the nation's drinking water, it has been revealed.An Environment Agency report suggests so many people are taking the drug nowadays it is building up in rivers and groundwater.A report in Sunday's Observer says the government's environment watchdog has discussed the impact for human health.A spokesman for the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI) said the Prozac found was most likely highly diluted....
The following film is not about drugs but about water, per se. A very frightening situation!
