Huxley Warned Us: Part 9

Aldous Huxley, 50 years ago in Brave New World Revisited:

"...That a dictator could, if he so desired, make use of [certain psychotropic chemicals] for political purposes is obvious. He could ensure himself against political unrest by changing the chemistry of his subjects' brains and so making them content with their servile conditions. He could use tranquillizers to calm the excited, stimulants to arouse enthusiasm in the indifferent, hallucinants to distract the attention of the wretched from their miseries.

"But how, it may be asked, will the dictator get his subjects to take the pills that will make them think, feel and behave in the ways he finds desirable? In all probability it will be enough merely to make the pills available. Today alcohol and tobacco are available, and people spend considerably more on these very unsatisfactory euphorics, pseudo­stimulants and sedatives than they are ready to spend on the education of their children."

We now know from secret experimental data released by Russia following a series of experiments carried out in the 1960s that adding fluoride to water supplies in concentrations of as little as 1ppm induces in subjects enhanced levels of susceptibility and compliance - a very useful tool indeed for any wayward government. Our so-called 'leaders' are still toying with the idea of introducing it into our drinking water on the grounds of improving dental health, notwithstanding that its psychotropic effects are becoming increasingly known.

So the big question is: could the dental health motive have been a mere pretext all along? Given that the discussion over fluoride remains on-going long after its mind-altering properties have been publicized, it seems quite likely. If there is one thing Huxley told us that we must never forget it is that our real enemies in the West are our governments. They are infinitely more dangerous to us than all the world's disparate terrorist groupings put together. Do we really know what they're injecting our kids with? Could there be more to it than simple vaccination?
