    Nestle CEO Says Water Is Food That Should Be Privatized

    Do you believe water is a basic human right? According to Nestlé CEO water is a foodstuff that should be privatized, not a human right. Nestlé CEO Peter Brabeck says that with the global population rising water is not a public right, but a resource that should be managed by businessmen. Please do share your thoughts.

    I think we should take the streets and demand Nestle's products to be banned unless they remove that CEO for his highly exploitative suggestion.

    Nestle CEO Says Water Is Food That Should Be Privatized

    I guess I would like a list of what everyone considers to be a basic human right. If I dig a well on my property then it is my water. If I grow a tomato then it is mine. How many objectors to what this guy said actually pay a water bill?

    A person has a right to life, not the materials that sustain life. One must make, find, earn or buy those things that sustain life.

    What right have you to demand that someone pump out and pipe water to you? Who pays for that infrastructure? Who pays for its maintenance? You think you have a right to other people's materials and labor?

    To anyone with a problem with what the Nestle CEO said: where's your water well?
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    It is, but it would be fair that you allow others to have access to your water. This, I think, is what the CEO was alluding to...creating markets so that the fair price for water could be determined.

    The infrastructure and maintenance is paid for by tax money, not by Nestle. The materials and labor to put in the infrastructure was paid for by tax money, not by Nestle. The water you use in your home is paid for by you and brought to your home by tax money, not by Nestle. The water was / is in the ground or taken from a river. Nestle did not create the water in some chem lab or factory. Nestle CEO nor any other company has a claim to the water.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    In some areas it is, but in most areas it is from private wells or even private companies who manage water infrastructure. Broaden your perception a bit.

    Did the Nestle CEO said he had a claim to the water? Did he claim that he had a right to appropriate already built facilities and infrastructure? What are you arguing here?

    He also said something at the end of the video that I thought was very insightful. "We've never had it so good, we've never had so much money, we've never been so healthy, we've never lived as long as we do today. We have everything we want...and still we go around as if we're in mourning for something."
