If I want to use fluoride to increase the strength of my teeth, it should be an option, not forced on everybody equally. There is research out there that shows many negative effects on fluoride,
They already put flouride in toothpaste, it makes little scence to add it to water...
Lithium has been heralded by some experts as the next potential flouride, after scientists found suicide rates were lower in areas where the drinking water had higher concentrations of the element.

To be fair, I think you have answered the question. The dumbing down of society has coincided with the Fluoridation of water.

Fluoride in the water system was created by Hitler. Welcome to America.
- The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany's Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride's supposed effect on children's teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. ( Ref. book: "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin .)
The story of fluoridation begins with a mystery staining of the teeth first described by dentist Dr. Frederick McKay in Colorado in 19012 and, independently in Naples in 1902 by Dr. J.M. Eager, an American dentist stationed in Italy. Over the following years, McKay became aware of several cases that suggested that the water supply might be responsible for the staining. He also noted that decay rates were much lower in areas with endemic dental staining than they were in other adjacent areas.
Americans are to stupid to take care of themselves...
The most vulnerable suffer when fluoride is taken from water
The substance may be toxic to kidneys, lungs, the nervous system, heart, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system, bones, teeth.
But hey - awesome case of godwins law in action, and thanks for not letting facts get in the way of a good story!
