Separating the waters

Dr. Strangelove (1964), by Stanley Kubrick

.

«Ripper:
Mandrake, do you recall what Clemenceau once said about war?

Mandrake:
I don’t think I do, sir.

Ripper:
He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids. (…)

Transcript of Ripper’s phone call:

“Yes. They’re on their way, and no one can bring them back. For our country’s sake, I suggest sending the rest of SAC after them. Otherwise we will be destroyed by Red retaliation. My boys will give you a good start: 1,400 megatons. And you won’t stop them now. So let’s get going. There’s no other choice. God willing, we will prevail. In peace, in freedom from fear, and in true health, through the purity of our natural… fluids. God bless you all.”

Ripper [with his arm around Mandrake]:

“Mandrake, have you ever seen a commie drink a glass of water?”

Mandrake:

“No, Jack. I can’t say that I have.”

Ripper:

“Vodka. That’s what they drink, isn’t it? Never water?”

Mandrake:

“Well, I believe that’s what they drink, Jack. Yes.”

Ripper:

“On no account will a commie drink water? And not without good reason?”

Mandrake:

“I don’t quite see what you’re getting at, Jack.”

Ripper:

“Water. That’s what I’m getting at. Water, Mandrake. Water is the source of all life. Seven-tenths of the earth’s surface is water. Why, do you realize that 70% of you is water?”

Mandrake:

“Odd.”

Ripper:

“And as human beings, you and I need fresh, pure water to replenish our precious bodily fluids.”

Mandrake:

“Yes.”

Ripper:

“Are you beginning to understand?”

Mandrake:

“Yes.”

Ripper:

“Mandrake. [hugs him closer] Mandrake, have you ever wondered why I drink only distilled water, or rain water, and only pure grain alcohol?”

Mandrake:

“Well, it did occur to me, Jack, yes.”

Ripper:

“Have you ever heard of a thing called fluoridation, fluoridation of water?”

Mandrake:

“Yes, I have heard of that, Jack, yes.”

Ripper:

“Well, do you know what it is?”

Mandrake:

“No.”

Ripper:

Do you realize that fluoridation is the most monstrously conceived and dangerous commie plot we have ever had to face? (…)»

«Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk, ice cream? Ice cream, Mandrake? Children’s ice cream!…You know when fluoridation began?…

Mandrake:

No, I don’t.

Ripper:

1946. 1946, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It’s incredibly obvious, isn’t it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual, and certainly without any choice. That’s the way your hard-core Commie works.

Mandrake:

Jack… tell me… When did you first become… develop this theory.

Ripper:

Well, I… I first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love… Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I… I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women, er, women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Mandrake…but I do deny them my essence. (…)

Ripper:

Those boys were like my children, Mandrake. Now they let me down.

Mandrake:

No, Jack, not a bit of it. I’m sure they all gave it their very best. I’m sure they all died thinking of you… Jack. Suppose a bit of water has gone off. You can never be too sure. But you look at me. Do I look all rancid and clotted? I drink a lot of water. I’m what you might call a water man, that’s what I am. I can swear to you that there’s nothing wrong with my bodily fluids. Not a thing. (…) Going to have a wash and brush up? Always did wonders for a man, that. Water on the back of the neck, that’s what we need, and the code.

«Continental Europe does not practice water fluoridation

«Fluoridation became an official policy of the U.S. Public Health Service by 1951, and by 1960 water fluoridation had become widely used in the U.S., reaching about 50 million people. By 2006, 69.2% of the U.S. population on public water systems were receiving fluoridated water, amounting to 61.5% of the total U.S. population; 3.0% of the population on public water systems were receiving naturally occurring fluoride.»
