    Is food a right? Is air a right? Is soap a right?
    Someone can die from not having soap? News to me.

    Someone might die from someone else not having soap?

    People can live for up to 4 weeks without food and can sustain themselves if they have clean water to drink and use for crops and livestock. I suggest you watch the documentary called "Flow."

    There was a time when people bathed once a year. Did they all die of lice?

    Certainly they didn't but they did die bubonic plague and on and on....
    I was just making a point that there are so many ways different things can kill you.

    You can die of exposure to the elements before you die from the lack of water.

    Its part of the rules of 3, 3 hours exposure, 3 days water, 3 weeks food.
    That is a generality though.

    Should we now make housing a right because it can kill you faster than not having water.

    But people should have the right to pay reasonable prices for clean, reliable water access baring special concerns like massive drought. Free water is a bad idea, but so is completely unregulated water markets.

    People own houses.

    Who owns water?
