Oxford professor Julian
Savulescu says fluoridation demonstrates how populations
of the future could be mass-medicated through
pharmacological ‘cognitive enhancements’ added to the water supply.

In a 2008 paper titled, “Fluoride and
the Future: Population Level Cognitive Enhancement,” Oxford
bioethics professor Julian Savulescu claims that water
fluoridation may be key to the “future of humanity.”
Note: Drug enhancement
is mentioned in Savulescu’s paper: “Genetic
interventions and the ethics of enhancement of human beings”
He argues that,
“fluoridation may not merely be
about tooth decay… [but] the drive to be better.”
Drugging the population’s water supply,
Savulescu claims, is a form of “enhancement” that can pave the way
to a future where mental abilities and other functions could be
improved with drugs.
“Fluoridation is the tip of the
enhancement iceberg. Science is progressing fast to develop safe
and effective cognitive enhancers, drugs which will improve our
For years, people have used crude
enhancers, usually to promote wakefulness, like nicotine,
caffeine and amphetamines. A new generation of more effective
enhancers is emerging modafenil, ritalin, Adderral and ampakines
and the piracetam family of memory improvers.”
But once highly safe and effective
cognitive enhancers are developed - as they almost surely will be -
the question will arise whether they should be added to the water,
like fluoride, or our cereals, like folate.
It seems likely that widespread
population level cognitive enhancement will be irresistible.
The dream Savulescu argues for is based upon the lie that
fluoridation of the public water supply has been a tremendous human
advancement. Supporting that lie is the boasted
claim by the Center
for Disease Control that water fluoridation ranks among the top 10
public health achievements of the 20th Century.
fluoride has been linked with
neurological effects, thyroid problems, bone cancer and even
What’s more, much of it is not even the
common-but-toxic sodium fluoride, but an
industrial waste derivative
known as hydrofluosilicic acid - in an estimated 2/3 of the
fluoridated public water in the U.S. and known to be very deadly.
Savulescu is flawed to hope fluoride can
pave the way to an alchemically-”improved” society, especially where
forced-medication is involved.
The vision is distinctly like that of
Brave New World, wherein author Aldous Huxley predicts a future
dictatorship where people “learn to love their servitude.” What
Huxley terms in the novel “Soma” would most likely come in reality
in the form of numerous drugs that would tackle individual
happiness, and the larger complacency of the masses at large.
Solidified by a Scientific Dictatorship,
a pharmacologically-treated population would be rendered very
unlikely to ever revolt against the regime in power.
“There will be, in the next
generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love
their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to
speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for
entire societies, so that people will in fact have their
liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it,
because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by
propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by
pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final
A ‘scientific’ form of control doesn’t
necessarily imply the rise of enlightenment or technological
innovation, but rather the guaranteed control of its population
through a tested understanding of human behavior - including
breaking point, resistance, anger - and the the ability to
systematically stay one-step or many more ahead of what anyone might
CHEMICALS ALREADY IN OUR FOOD & WATER
So could “cognitive enhancers” like Ritalin, Prozac and other
chemically-engineered drugs be added to the water supply in the
future to make humans better, smarter or faster?
Or could they make
humans docile, complacent and dangerously subservient?
Such proposals are already underway, and what’s more, whether
intentional or not, spiked water supplies are already affecting
populations in the U.S. and across the globe.

pharmaceutical drugs were found in the majority of the United
States’ water supply. According to the AP, at least 46 million

advocated adding sterilants to the water supply.

It’s a brave new world indeed where
Oxford professor Julian Savulescu argues for the “Ethics of
In his 2002 paper, “Genetic
interventions and the ethics of enhancement of human beings,” Savulesco argues for using
gene therapy and drug therapy to make “happier, healthier people.”
It could mean adding both mental-boosting and mood-enhancing
chemicals to the things everyone eats or drinks.
It is interesting that Savulescu mentions fluoride alongside
“cognitive enhancements,” as many critics have pointed towards the
use of fluoride in Nazi concentration camps to keep the inmates
passive, and questioned whether a docile population is a hidden
purpose of the water fluoridation campaigns in the United States and
post-war Western world.

proponent of most types of genetic-enhancement that have been
He sees experiments like the
“supermouse” as a model for the potential supermen of the future.
However, all of these “enhancements” come with risks.
Savulescu poses the potential to “enhance” a.k.a. “control”
“If the results of recent animal studies into hard work
and monogamy apply to humans, it may be possible in the future to
genetically change how we are predisposed to behave. This raises a
new question: should we try to engineer better, happier people?”
NOT UTILIZING ENHANCEMENTS COULD BE ‘WRONG’
He goes on to argue that while many have raised questions about the
moral and ethical dilemmas of biological enhancement, NOT enhancing
could be most wrong.
In this scenario, not feeding offspring
“enhanced” food additives could be considered as an offense:
“First Argument for Enhancement: Choosing Not to Enhance Is Wrong
Consider the case of the Neglectful Parents. The Neglectful parents
give birth to a child with a special condition.
The child has a
stunning intellect but requires a simple, readily available, cheap
dietary supplement to sustain his intellect. But they neglect the
diet of this child and this results in a child with a stunning
intellect becoming normal. This is clearly wrong.”
“But now consider the case of the Lazy Parents. They have a child
who has a normal intellect but if they introduced the same dietary
supplement, the child’s intellect would rise to the same level as
the child of the Neglectful Parent. They can’t be bothered with
improving the child’s diet so the child remains with a normal
Failure to institute dietary supplementation means a
normal child fails to achieve a stunning intellect. The inaction of
the Lazy Parents is as wrong as the inaction of the Neglectful
parents. It has exactly the same consequence: a child exists who
could have had a stunning intellect but is instead normal.
argue that it is not wrong to fail to bring about”
Savulescu’s vision is distinctly “transhumanist” a branch of the
eugenics movement which seeks to improve the human species to the
point that highly-gifted individuals would transcend into a new &
improved proto-human species - becoming godlike creatures with
unique creative potential and abilities.
Transhumanism was first
termed by UNESCO founder Julian Huxley in 1952, the grandson of
Charles Darwin’s partner at the Royal Society of Science, T.H.
“I believe in transhumanism”: once there are enough people who can
truly say that, the human species will be on the threshold of a new
kind of existence, as different from ours as ours is from that of
Peking man. It will at last be consciously fulfilling its real

“VOLUNTARY” ENHANCEMENTS THROUGH MASS-MEDICATED
That philosophy of Transhumanism, moreover, is necessarily rooted in
the Eugenics movement of the early 20th Century that was led by the
scientific elite of the Royal Society, which included Charles
Darwin, his cousin Francis Galton and Thomas H. Huxley.

eugenically- engineered society that would be progressive and even
transformative, theoretically producing a ‘better’, albeit
tightly-authoritarian society (science demands control, in that
Savulescu identifies with much of this “liberal Eugenics,”
defensibly separate from Nazi eugenics because there is ‘no belief
in only one gene-type’ and because its measures remain “voluntary.”
“What was objectionable about the eugenics movement, besides its
shoddy scientific basis, was that it involved the imposition of a

the same vein as compulsory vaccinations, and anything else that can
be justified on a public health care basis, even when such
treatments prove not to be healthy at all.

Population Level Cognitive Enhancement

Health Secretary Alan Johnson wants to

He wants health authorities to compel water companies to add the
Fluoridation of the water is an example of human
Tooth decay is a part of the human
condition but we now have the ability to prevent it through a safe,
cheap, easy intervention - adding fluoride to the water. Many parts
of the civilized world have been employing this strategy for decades
with dramatic success. England is now debating whether to fully
embrace this simple enhancement technology.
Fluoridation is the tip of the enhancement iceberg. Science is
progressing fast to develop safe and effective cognitive enhancers,
drugs which will improve our mental abilities. For years, people
have used crude enhancers, usually to promote wakefulness, like
nicotine, caffeine and amphetamines.
A new generation of more effective
enhancers is emerging modafenil, ritalin, Adderral and ampakines and
the piracetam family of memory improvers. Students and professionals
are using these to gain a competitive edge, just as athletes are
doping in sport.
But once highly safe and effective cognitive enhancers are developed
- as they almost surely will be - the question will arise whether
they should be added to the water, like fluoride, or our cereals,
It seems likely that widespread population level cognitive
enhancement will be irresistible.
Studies based on removing lead, which
reduces cognitive ability, from the water and paint, have estimated
that a 3 point IQ increase would lead to:

It may be about the future of humanity
and the drive to be better. Current enhancers are not suitable for
population level distribution. But drugs to improve working memory
and other select aspects of cognition may be. We may not just want
whiter teeth, but to be smarter. A government which refuse to
enhance its population might well be effectively disabling it.
