—Never Quite Free
The Mountain Goats - Never Quite Free
It’s okay to find the faith to saunter forward
There’s no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you’ll breathe easier just knowing that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night have set you on dry land

The Privatization of Water: Nestlé Denies that Water is a Fundamental Human Right.
Nestlé’s Chairman and former CEO once infamously declared that “access to water should not be a public right.” And now his company is putting into practice its belief that every resource should be commodified and sold off. Nestlé is sucking up water from a Canadian watershed during drought conditions — to bottle and sell it off.
Nestlé’s Chairman claiming that the idea that water is a human right comes from “extremist” NGOs and that water should have a market value. Nestlé has dealt with NGOs and lost before — the years-long boycott over Nestlé’s dirty tactics to get mothers to stop breastfeeding and use baby formula — which resulted in thousands of infant deaths from water-born illnesses — was a historic success in corporate campaigning.
Nestlé’s appetite to commodify water and natural remedies is a recurring strategy by a corporation with a pattern of seeking to privatize and profit from traditional knowledge and our natural resources. By speaking out against the draining of our watersheds, you will be taking a stand against Nestlé’s strategy to profit off everything in nature.
- Meat eater: what about the people who pick YOUR vegetables?
- Vegan: Wait, what do you mean MY vegetables? don't you eat vegetables as well? What are you doing for these peoples rights other than using their struggles as a convenient "gotcha card" in attempts to silence vegans from talking about non human oppression? anything? And I'm guessing since you care so much about migrant workers in poor conditions, you are doing everything in your power to fight for those working in slaughterhouses and meat packing facilities since they are known to be one of the most dangerous and unsafe work places in the entire world, yes?
- Meat eater: Well...
- Vegan: Don't you think you should spend a little less time trying to belittle the efforts of people who are genuinely trying to cause the least amount of damage to animals, the environment and humans, and spend more time trying to make an effort of your own?
- Meat eater: um, I mean...
- Meat eater: bacon lol
