The Upper Delaware economy is getting killed this spring.
Its a ghost town.
Let me distill the issue, as simply as possible.
New York City needs water.
If they don’t have that drinking water, they’re in deep shit.
We all get that.
But here’s the sad truth.
Life is not satisfying, and the needs of a man are not met by a glassful of water.
How sad it is when we’ve allowed this city to grow, to the point where its need for drinking water leaves none for our fishery.
None for nature.
That is what’s sad.
We take, take, take from the earth’s abundance, until it has nothing left to give.
The insights, art, literature and painting of anglers, birdwatchers and outdoorsmen have no value, if there is no water to drink.
Of course not!
But to live without any natural world left.
You’re getting to see the world we are leaving our kids.
Without nature, and without art.
Markets have turned men into workers, only.
Men who work for the profit of the idle rich, Wall Street types who have never worked a day in their lives.
People who create nothing.
Keeps the working man alive. So its taken, diverted from its natural course…
To the faucets in NYC.
O THE IRONY OF THE CAPITALIST WORLD!
To increase worker productivity, ya know whats effective??
