I spend a lot of time on the road, and one thing I know for a fact it's that every gas station, convenience and grocery store in California has water in it from Fiji. I used to think that was kind of cool, now I just think what the fuck? We need to start drinking our own water now, and let the Fijians keep theirs. There's no excuse for shipping water over here from Fiji. None.
These days it's hard to tell which is the Biggest Lie being foisted on us as a society, but one of them has to be that "consumer choice" is in any way connected to the notion of "Freedom". Buying stuff isn't freedom, getting rid of it is.
