Call me hippie, utopia, or whatever you want, but I think that access to drinking water for all should be an inalienable right. Water is the only vital element to life, and no one should be deprived of it.
Yes, it has a cost, yes, it's hard, but I am sure that everybody would benefit from this effort.
Conflicts and wars have already occurred because of the question of access to water. It happened in the past, it happens today, and will repeat more and more in a near future. Stream of migrations, mass movement of people seeking place to live, just because they need water.
So tell me that it costs less to the International Community to handle this, than granting access to water to everybody?
So, I say that, access to drinking water, should be hard written in The Declaration of Human Rights, and that anyone on Earth, poor, rich, white, black, Catholic, Muslim, atheist or anyone else, should have the right to drink water.
Let's be Human.
