Despite damning evidence on fluoride toxicity, bureaucracies and multinationals continue to pollute our drinking water and mess with our physical and mental health
Extracted with permission from his 1987
self-published booklet The Dickinson Statement:
A Mind-Bogging Thesis
This story has a beginning, it has a middle but it has no ending. The ‘ending’ will undoubtedly be written in countless hospital records, on tiny gravestones, in the bones of the crippled and on the hearts of the bereaved. Even so, the true cause of the ‘ending’ will never be advertised. One record that slipped past the establishment net is duplicated herein but, believe it or not, the existence of this ‘death certificate’ has been denied, in writing and to overseas scientific inquiry, by Australian administrators.
What follows is but a fractional part of the ‘middle’ of a story that began before the turn of the century and which was provoked by a statement contained in an “Address in Reply to the Governor’s Speech to Parliament”, as recorded in Victorian Hansard of 12 August 1987, by Mr. Harley Rivers Dickinson, Liberal Party Member of the Victorian Parliament for South Barwon. Hence the title.
The relevant Hansard abstract is reproduced herewith. It is emphasized that the writer imputes Mr. Dickinson with no other responsibility for the contents of this thesis than being the parliamentary ‘trigger’ which motivated it and the researched data which it contains.
“At the end of the Second World War, the United States Government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany.
“While there he was told by German chemists of a scheme which had been worked out by them during the war and adopted by the German General Staff.
“This was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water. In this scheme, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place.
“Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain and will thus make him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. “Both the Germans and the Russians added sodium fluoride to the drinking water of prisoners of war to make them stupid and docile.”
In a book written by Dr Hans Moolenburgh of Haarlem, Holland, called Fluoride – The Freedom Fight, the author describes the ultimately successful endeavors to free the Dutch people from water fluoridation. (Those endeavors included the only properly conducted double-blind study ever done anywhere in the world into the effects of tap water [1 p.p.m.].)
One brief passage is headed “Perkins”, and a reproduction of that section gives sufficient confirmation, by a remote and independent source, of the “Dickenson Statement” as printed in Hansard, to reinforce the need for additional investigation into this one ‘behaviour control’ aspect of the ‘fluoride debate’ and relate it to 1987. (The entire “Perkins” paragraph is reproduced below.)
Elsewhere in this book, Dr Moolenburgh also relates how that first “Perkins” anecdote was confirmed in differing ways and from reliable independent sources.
“When 1971 was drawing to a close, I received a paper containing a strange story. This story was to haunt us repeatedly throughout the long, drawn-out battle. It was a story resembling science fiction – bizarre and unbelievable. There are those who warned me not to even mention this story, and I can appreciate why. On the other hand, the task of an historian is not to relate things as they should have happened, but as they actually did happen.
“…The Perkins saga was different from other fluoride stories.
“The story of industries hoodwinking the public into buying a pollutant as a medicine is simply ‘whodunnit’. Grotesque though it may sound, it is no more that ‘the consumer fraud of this polluted century’ (as described in Fluoridation and Truth Decay by Gladys Caldwell). But the story I now read was different: it gave one the cold shivers. It told of a chemical engineer, Mr. Perkins, who related how immediately after the Second World War he was one the Americans put into the well-known I.G.Farben Company in Germany. There he discovered that I.G.Farben had developed plans during the war to fluoridate the occupied countries, because it had been found that fluoridation caused slight damage to specific parts of the brain. This damage had a very particular effect. It mad it more difficult for the person affected to defend his freedom. He became more docile towards authority.
“Scientists in the camps of both opponents and proponents of fluoride have always dismissed this story as mere poppycock, but it had a life of its own and reared its head time and again. It fed the suspicions of many people that ‘there was more to fluoridation than meets the eye’.
“As far as I know, there is no one who has done any serious research into whether the fluoridated person is really more docile, easier to rule, more impressed by authority than the non-fluoridated one. There is, though, one peculiar thing: every Dutch doctor has a medical reference book for 1984. One of the chapters is entitled “Tranquillisers”. Looking at the “minor Tranquillisers” I find twenty-four substances: their chemical formulae do not show any connection with fluoride. However, there is also a heading , “major Tranquillisers”. Of those there are twenty-seven, and seven of them are a fluoride compound. One of these is Semap. It is one of the strongest anti-psychotic substances we know. This means that twenty-five per cent of the major Tranquillisers are connected with fluoride. I do not draw any conclusions. The only thing one can say at this point is, with Alice: ‘curiouser and curiouser!’”
Actually there is little that is novel in the concept of controlling the minds and manners of the multitude by chemical/dietary means. That it was practised by Hitler’s regime is made the more credible when we know that as far back as 1938 the US Government, and ally to boot, and the government of a democratic Christian country, was considering the transformation of American citizens and others into ‘zombies’ by a number of proposed techniques. The US Army searched for “the perfect incapacitating agent”, according to General Fellenz, “to put in the enemy’s water supply”. Included in the drugs tested were the hallucinogenic LSD and the amnesiac BZ (10 times more potent than LSD), and a “schizophrenic agent called bulbocapine”.
The “Rockefeller Report” to the United States President on CIA activities said: “The drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means of controlling human behaviour”.
One drug which received special attention in the ‘fifties and early ’sixties, under the cryptonym of MK-ULTRA, was suxamethonium chloride (listed under a number of product names including Anectine), a halogenated anti-cholinergic agent with all the symptomatic side-effects up to and including cardiac arrest ascribed to these agents in the medical literature.
Please retain the term “anti-cholinergic agent” in mind , for owing to the health implications attendant on this particular anti-metabolic activity, it figures repeatedly in this thesis.
Note: An adviser to the US Government on hypnotism or psychological behaviour control, Dr George Estabrooks, later became Chairman, Department of Psychology, Colgate University. Internationally, Colgate was and remains the most ardent producer and advocate for the fluorination of a domestic product – fluoridated toothpaste.
Now, should the reader’s mind be already boggled to the point of disbelief, there are two facts which, if known about and/or remembered, may instill sufficient confidence in that which is even more ‘boggling’ and is yet to come.
Bromine (or bromide) tea was administered to the enlisted men during the First and second World Wars.
The halogen (bromine) ingredients was said to quell the libido of the men and thus limit likely forays into the ‘dens of iniquity’ and the acquisition of venereal disease.
The second fact is that, today, all Australian military establishments provide their own halogenated (fluoridated) water for the troops resident therein, for the official reason that the element is good for developing teeth.
Either we have a very immature military force, all under that of twelve years when the mythical effect of fluoride ceases to exist, or else there is another more obscure, less altruistic reason for this drug ‘treatment’ of the troops.
Later on in this text we will recall certain happenings relative to ex-trainees from those establishments and the paradoxical effects of fluorides on behaviour of the human being.
The Parliamentary “Dickenson Statement” refers to “the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany”.
It has been said by Anthony C. Sutton in his book, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler: “Without the capital supplied by Wall Street, there would have been no I. G. Farben in the first place, and almost certainly no Adolph Hitler and World War II.”
Interssen Gemeinschaft Farben (Interessen Gemeinschaft der Deutschen Teerfarbeninduistrie, or, simply, I.G. Farben) was a German chemical manufacturing concern that supplied the chlorine gas used by Germany during the First World War, but the eventual creation of the huge I.G.Farben cartel began in 1924 when American bankers began to arrange foreign loans in what Professor Carroll Quigley terms “the Dawes Plan”, “largely a J.P. Morgan production”/
In 1928 Henry Ford merged his German assets with I.G. Farben, to be followed by the American Standard Oil Company (the Rockefellers) who, in concert with I.G.Farben, developed the coal-to-oil hydrogenation process.
In a letter to Roosevelt from Berlin in the early ‘thirties, the US Ambassador in Germany, William Dodd, said:
“At the present moment, more than a hundred American corporations have subsidiaries here or cooperative understandings.
“The DuPonts have their allies in Germany that are aiding in the armament business. Their chief ally is the I.G. Farben Company, a part of the government which gives 200,000 marks a year to one propaganda organization operating on American opinion.
“Standard Oil Company … sent US$500,000 a year helping Germans make ersatz [a substitute] gas [the hydrogenation process of converting coal to gasoline] for war purposes; but Standard Oil cannot take any of its earnings out of the country except in goods.
“The International Harvester Company president told me their business here rose 33% a year [arms manufacture, I believe], they could take nothing out.
“Even our airplanes people have secret arrangements with Krupps.
“General Motors Company and Ford do enormous business here through their subsidiaries and take no profits out.”
The I.G. Farben assets in America were controlled by a holding company, American I.G. Farben, which listed on its Board of Directors: Edsel Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company; Chas. E. Mitchell, President of Rockefeller’s National City Bank of New York; Walter Teagle, President of Standard Oil of New York; Paul Warburg, Chairman of the Federal Reserve and brother of Max Warburg, financier of Germany’s war effort; and Herman Metz, a Director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs.
