UK Against Fluoridation

USA - Letter

Letter of the Week: The people have spoken; let's sue Big Brother - Dec. 5, 2006
So here we are, having fluoride forced down our throats unless we spend the time, money and trouble to find pure water for drinking and cooking. It is not believable that, even after Orwell’s book, 1984, came out, a majority of people voted to let Big Brother decide what is best for all of us and put something in our water. But at least that was in the years before so much testing was available and the ill effects of so many substances was not known. There was more trust of Big Brother – and perhaps more reason for the trust. (?) And perhaps not so many people were familiar with Orwell’s warning.

But what is truly unbelievable is that once again, here in the 21st century, a majority of people vote, like a bunch of sheep, to let Big Brother continue the practice. And in Arcata, of all places!! I never thought I’d see the day. I am a Liberal – yes, with a capital L – and proud of it; I want a sensible amount of regulation and want government acting always for the general good and less for the interest of the rich and powerful – but when we let government invade even our digestive tracts “for the good of us all,” this is liberalism run amok.

Will I be able to bill the City for the cost in time, money and the trouble to an aging woman with health problems in getting my own water supply? Some of us should be thinking of a class action suit along those lines.
