New water technologies

It appears that Australian policy is to supply water to a population which business has imagined at between 50 million and 200 million51 by recycling water, desalinating it, and building new dams, in a kind of Saudi or Israeli vision of a twenty-first-century desert economy. All of these schemes which population stabilization and decline would mitigate and avoid, stand to cost the current population socially, physically, and financially, but the benefits (almost exclusively financial) will be focused on only a few. The situation is put to the people as one which will save them from catastrophe, so few question these costs, which they are coached to believe are inevitable.

It would be nice for Australians to have Cuban-style options for reorganizing locally, individually, and cooperatively so that they would not be entirely reliant on the reorganization and repowering of their economy according to the corporate profit motive mediated by semi-privatized government. However, trends are not moving the people's way.
