    So can I just open and drink a BOTTLE of water in the store …….. because “water is a RIGHT”?
    People PAID to clean and pipe that water and those people in Detroit do not want to PAY for it.

    • Jason Calley

      Yes, exactly! You have a right to water — if it is YOUR water! You do NOT have a right to make other people work for and pay for your water. Same with medical care, same with food, same with housing. There is a name of someone who believes that they have a right to the labor and production of other people. What do you call someone like that? They are called slave masters.

  • Kelly

    I just don’t understand why Detroit let those people go so long without paying. I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and if you don’t pay your water bill, the water gets cut off the next day. Period.

  • EH

    Yes, water is essential to life. Without water within a week you will die. No, it is not possible to get potable water from streams anywhere, let alone in Detroit. No, Detroit will not let you dig a well, certainly without lots of permit fees and a requirement to go through a licensed contractor. No, rainwater is not an alternative – lots of critters use your roof as their toilet. Sanitary piped water and sanitary sewers have saved more lives than every medicine and doctor in history combined. Using potentially infectious water is not only more dangerous than drinking nothing but beer, it’s more risky than riding a motorcycle after drinking a dozen beers. Even if you could find an alternate source for drinking water to get around the city monopoly, it has to go through the pipes to be usable for washing, which is also very important for health.

    Cities trying to chintz out on supplying water are just moronic. They’ll be out far more money from population collapse, epidemics, people living in the streets… water and sewer are absolutely the last things to cut off. Get rid of pensions, road maintenance, police, fire, hospitals EVERYTHING before cutting off water.

    Water was basically the first service provided by government. Control of irrigation water was the basis for rule in the first civilizations in Mesopotamia. Piped water systems were the crucial enabling factor for cities under the Roman Empire. In European cities, public fountains for drinking water were the first amenities provided by rulers, right after after city walls.
