Benevolent Masters and Controllers of Water
Canada Free Press ^ | 10/27/2013 | Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

If you ask any Americans like me who grew up under communism and deprivation, we know what it’s like to go the entire summer, every summer, without any hot water and scheduled cold water because that is when the communist leadership decided that it was the best time to clean the cisterns of mineral deposits. At least that is what they told us. We had a few hours of hot water during winter time, 5-7 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. Cold water was also regulated in summer time. During the day, when everyone was assumed to be at work or school, there was no cold water for eight hours. I am not sure they did it out of incompetence, spite, or to make us as miserable as possible.

Thanks Dr. Paugh for another fine piece of writing and perspective. Some folks still don't get it. Since you've lived it and some others have had experience with and seen first hand what the "rulers" do, those that don't see it or believe it may find out sooner than they think. I don't think they're gonna like it.

Think of a young Denzel Washington being told “you don’t know what racism is!’ Mississippi Masala. They don’t think outside their SMALL circle.

I lived this in a former communist country; it was an interesting system.

During the winter, we had water at all hours, but only had electricity for four out of 24 hours. Because the water was delivered to upper floors via electric pump, we only had water in our apartments during the 4 hours we had electricity. Water was usually available at ground level via public spout. December and January electric availability was reduced to 1 hour every 24 hours.

During the summer, we usually had electricity 100% of the time (no air conditioning means low grid demand), but had severe water rationing. We would get water for 1 or two hours in the morning, then again for one or two hours in the evening.

But hey, it was all free...

Whereas in the communist country where I lived for a time, the water didn’t run anymore. You had to bring pails to an outside faucet and bring them home to be able to flush the toilet, etc.
Also, electricity wasn’t rationed, as such - there were just constant random blackouts.
