Municipal water should be as unadulterated as possible. Chlorination is
probably justifiable. No medication should be forced.
So how about a vote? Go with the majority? You did not mention fluorine.
Here's one view of the future: vaccines will be enhanced to cover more
illnesses. Strains of beneficial bacteria or even viruses will be
administered by pediatricians at appropriate times just like vaccines and
probably mandatory for public schools. Skeptics will pull their kids out
and so we will have, like India, an Untouchable class who have the wrong
microbiome, with shouts of 'unclean, unclean!'. And generic Cialis will be
covered by Medicare.
God only knows what will be in our water.
Bottom line: it will become harder and harder to be a practicing
libertarian. The theme will be 'The greatest good for the greatest
number'. (which probably quotes someone - I dunno)
