Let’s Poison Them Young

After I posted this piece about the government’s flouride pushers in public schools, RB, a libertarian acquaintance, sent me this photo he took of Mother’s Choice “infant water.” The label says, “with added flouride.”

On flouride, see Murray Rothbard’s “Flouridation Revisited” and Dr. Donald Miller’s “Flouride Follies.”

    I love the last photo. You could also make the claim that arsenic is natural. Doesn’t mean you need it in your drinking water.

    Can’t some one or group institute a law suit about this poisoning?

    I used to have a saying whilst living in semiconductor valley (btw a very NOT so clean industry after all):

    “I don’t mind listening to heavy metal – I just don’t like drinking it…”

    I’m sure the Nazis weren’t concerned about the dental hygiene of imprisoned Jews when they fluoridated the wells in the concentration camps.

    I remember the first time I noticed fluoridated nursery water. I had just gone cold turkey off paxil… had been buying non-fluoride toothpaste for years. I wept.

    I still believe there is a concerted effort to make everyone ill. How else to explain these things?

    Reading Rothbard’s article, it seems the idea that eating bacon is good for you was first pushed by an architect of the flouridation movement when he was a prominent (admittedly cynical) mouthpiece of a company that produced pork products, like bacon, and needed to convince the population that eating bacon was a boon to health.

    Later came the “studies” showing red meat and fat, and especially pork and pork fat, caused heart disease, and were at least suspect in causing myriad other diseases and health-destroying conditions.

    Then comes the “fat revolution,” spear-headed by the late Dr. Atkins, and now thoroughly incorporated into the ancestral-paleo diet movement.

    Can’t help but conclude that the flap over flouridation is the same.

    The real issue isn’t a “scientific” one; the real issue is a government one. The real issue isn’t a health issue; it’s one of whether anyone should be forced to pay to subsidize someone else — for any cause.

    The issue of raw milk isn’t really whether it’s good for you or not; it’s an issue of whether we can be forced to pay for others to take away our or someone else’s choices and livelihoods, regardless of the reason.

    If we simply concentrate on getting rid of taxation, the government will collapse of necessity, and individual choice and freedom will be the rule. Then everyone can make for himself, based on his own gleanings of the scientific literature either way, whether to flouridate himself and his family, eat bacon or drink raw milk, or not.

    This alone should be our focus and goal. Everything else is arbitrary, superfluous, fickle, and shifting, depending on one’s point of view and “loyalties” — one’s political philosophy and particular depth and breadth of knowledge and experience.

    Right now we still have choices: to eat bacon or not, and to flouridate or not via water filters/purifiers or, if you live where it’s possible and feasible, your own water well. The choice of whether to produce and/or consume raw milk is in danger, regardless of the “health issues.” That’s the crux.

    I’d rather see libertarians concentrate on electing Dr. Paul and people like him in key leadership positions, and ergo, abolishing taxes, thus eliminating government intrusion in every facet of our lives, than waste time and resources on these dubious “issues” of health.

    I read something recently to the effect that we live in such abundance and health today that our traditional and real health threats no longer exist, so we must cast about for crusades to channel our excess energies in, and I think this is the case here. In the history of the world, we’ve never had such health and longevity, regardless of diversions and imperfections, and regardless of government or lack of it.

    While as a libertarian I do not support “Big Pharma,” “Big Medicine,” “environmentalism” or big government, still, facts is facts, and the facts are that despite our government-programmed educated idiocy and artificial additives to our daily lives, we are far healthier than our ancestors dreamed of being. Rather than repudiate all things “unnatural” and “modern,” why can’t we strike a balance between what’s “natural” and what’s “artificial” but beneficial, in the arena of health as well as material and technological products?

    I see the whole “natural/organic” foods movement, and the anti-vaccination movement, as simply an insidious arm of environmentalism, which ultimately seeks to eliminate mankind; health is really only a deceptive hook — and one that works really well, because it appeals to our own fears of disability and death.

    We all die, no matter how “healthy” and “fit” and “beautiful” we may ever be.

    Just as SUVs aren’t really destroying the planet, and are really a great benefit to us, so are a myriad of “unnatural,” ingestible chemicals.

    Libertarianism is: caveat emptor.

    To use legislation to force legislation is statist, pure and simple, and will always be subject to majority — mob — whim, and ultimately, the whim of the unseen oligarchs at the very top who manipulate it. Why play their game? The house ALWAYS wins.

    I choose caveat emptor rather than deciding for others what is healthier for them and trying to make the government agree with our particular ideas of “keeping our brothers.” That’s what “special interests” — “Big Pharma,” “Big Medicine,” “Big Agra,” etc., are all about, right? Why simply be the other side of the same coin?

    Individual freedom, anti-taxation, anti-government, anti-military-industrial complex, anti-empire, anti-democracy/mob rule, yes, I’m on board with. Environmentalism in any form — even disguised as “health” and libertarianism, no.


    Government, whether it agrees with us or not, is the problem, not the solution. The only viable libertarian solution is no government — even to outlaw municipal water flouridation. Eliminate taxes and the government will die. Eliminate taxation first; everything else is superfluous. Tax-free equals true freedom.
