As far as I remember (I was only 6 at the time) I didn’t pay for any of my education, I was just obliged by law to go to school whether I wanted to or not, decided long before my appearance on this planet by others of my species and whilst there they also stuck needles in my arms as immunisation against diseases which they didn’t seem to want me and future generations to catch which I didn’t pay anything towards either. How about you? So in the parable of the Good Samaritan, you wouldn’t help the injured guy unless he paid you some money? After all, TANSTAAFL. There’s no arguing with reptilian genes. It’s very simple, you either believe in society (the source of all morality) or you don’t, and, if you don’t all is just self-interest.
Water production is in public ownership in Ireland paid for by the public purse as a necessary utlity conducive to people’s well-being and the social good, a commonwealth, and has been for generations and you are saying this should be changed and people pay for it directly, the first step towards its eventual privatisation and probable sell-off to a corporation somwhere, just to bail out debts incurred by wealthy bankers who royally screwed up the Irish Economy and please the IMF? In short to take away a right that has always belonged to the people and give the profits made from this to an elite wealthy few?
