While it’s shocking to watch a city deny the rights of its own citizens, that’s nothing compared to what could happen if private water companies are allowed to take over.

Wasn't that part of the plot line of The Omen II and III?
Just had the Omen II on in the background and it came to a part were the Dad is having a convo with a few douchebags that work for his company. One of them is talking about using famine as a means to make profit and then goes into a spiel which pretty much describes what Monsanto is up to.
Anyone see it?
Hadn't seen it, but geez. Monsanto. Sad.
