    Just pointing that out. I hate when people use the word "Moot" like that. Learn the definition!
    moot
    adjective
    1.
    open to discussion or debate; debatable; doubtful: a moot point.
    2.
    of little or no practical value or meaning; purely academic.
    3.
    Chiefly Law. not actual; theoretical; hypothetical.
    verb (used with object)
    4.
    to present or introduce (any point, subject, project, etc.) for discussion.
    5.
    to reduce or remove the practical significance of; make purely theoretical or academic.
    6.
    Archaic. to argue (a case), especially in a mock court.
    As an adjective, I'd say I meant both definition 2 and 3. I would stand by that assertion. Furthermore, you could say that such a statement as the thread title dose definition 5 to human rights.

    Since there is no particular reason to decide that only definition 1 is valid (and why not decide that only definition 6 is valid?), any disagreement over this would be, I assume, not a linguistic one but a practical one over the implication of such a philosophy (which is probably what we should be talking about, anyhow).

    Peter Brabeck does not seem human. I have to go a little raptor on this as i'm inclined to think he may be of some alien super race infiltrating and poisoning us all slowly, labratting. His hair, every strand, everything about him seems implanted, fake including his non personality. He is definately not a human, plus he is a baddy alien. Water is not a human right to him,... it's an alien right

    He wants to keep it all for himself! He must be Fremen. Water is more valuable to them.

    Right. Unless they buy it from someone, and then sell it to someone else. Who doesn't have the right to BUY water?

    Nations meeting rejected calls for water to be recognized as a basic human right.

    By The Vancouver Sun March 26, 2008



    OTTAWA -- The Harper government can declare victory after a United Nations meeting rejected calls for water to be recognized as a basic human right.

    Instead, a special resolution proposed by Germany and Spain at the UN human rights council was stripped of references that recognized access to water as a human right. The countries also chose to scrap the idea of creating an international watchdog to investigate the issue, choosing instead to appoint a new consultant that would make recommendations over the next three years.

    The problem of industrial society is over-production.

    And over-production can only be met by increasing consumption.

    So we should be paid to consume.

    And in the case of industrial potable water, we should be paid to consume the water.

    You thought the Fremen were good? That was just the way they were presented.

    I absolutely want to lurch every time now I go into a grocery store and realize 80 to 90 percent of the bottled water belongs to Nestle.

    I especially am disgusted by anything that says "Nestle Pure Life."

    Try to avoid the Unilever label at all costs. Read the fine print. It looks like a big U and is on foods as seemingly unrelated as Dreyer's and Haagen-Daaz ice cream (most ice cream actually that isn't local, outside of Stonybrook Farms NO Ben and Jerry's is still affiliated with Nestle, DO NOT FALL FOR BEN AND JERRYS PACKAGING) and things like Ragu pasta sauce, Stouffer's and Lean Cuisine frozen meals, and any breakfast or dairy foods made by Carnation.

    Nestle is pretty much the anti-christ.

    Why are these Randroids and Ron Paulites so afraid of the government when we have world wide demonic entities like Nestle to already control us? They've surpassed any government with lightening speed and on a very fundamental level - food and water.
