To this litany, there now can be added the concept of water neutrality.
As this excellent commentary by Brendan O'Neill shows, water neutrality suffers from the same over-bearing morality and shortage of common sense that constrain the utility of parallel constructs:
- Water is life. There is no living creature known to man that can survive without water.
- To feel guilty about using water is to feel guilty about being alive, to be ashamed of humanity's very presence on planet Earth.
- Do you know what 'water neutrality' really means? Death.
