I first heard of libertarianism and the Libertarian Party around 1976 from a Flagstaff physician, Murray Feldstein. His nurse/assistant or receptionist (I cannot remember which) was a staunch opponent of fluoride for all **QQ**those**QQ** reasons. Now I knew a reasonable amount about fluoride and teeth and cavity prevention. I was not really persuaded by her arguments against fluoride supplementation save one, and it was what this guy in the article said almost verbatim:

**QQ**It**Q**s medication without individual consent.**QQ**

Yup. I couldn**Q**t argue with that. An automatic rejection of fluoridating water for me from that point on. Worse, companies were putting fluoride in toothpaste and mouthwash without offering non-fluoridated versions, and bureaucrats suggesting milk and orange juice follow suit and there was discussion of requiring it in delivered bottle water. Nice. Something strange when we just can**Q**t seemingly get enough fluoride to satisfy our masters.
