Having lived a good portion of my life in the US, I am very aware of the ongoing and the vast array of conversations about water. There are issues with drought, flooding, contamination, water rights and even stealing, but the conversation that many people neglect to have is the one about fluoridation. While I find myself disturbed by the fact that most people turn a blind eye to this use of fluorides in our public water systems, I am equally disturbed that municipalities do it at all.
Too often we blindly trust that our government has our best interest at the base of their decisions. Not to paint with too wide of a brush, but we all know only too well that that is not always the case. I don’t mean to sound overly cynical, but it often appears that their true interest lies in lead generation and alliances which promote their own self interests.
Conspiracy theories abound. I’m willing to draw the conclusion that as long as there have been humans on the planet someone, somewhere mistrusted the motives of another. This hasn’t necessarily proven to be a bad thing.
To keep it within the boundaries of possible realities some of the popular conspiracy theories which have bounced around over the past two centuries are not that hard of a stretch to phantom. However, there are others that are so far left of field, it’s hard to take them seriously.
As a whole the history of the human race has proven itself as an untrustworthy lot. In this author’s mind it’s important that we question major events that affect societies around the world. If we allow ourselves to be spoon fed some of the preposterous notions that are delivered like a party bus kitchener of media would do, we are asking for trouble.
