The laws that govern the introduction of man-made disease-causing toxins into the environment are an expression of our national character. We don’t like anybody telling us what we can or can’t do. Sometimes we make exceptions, the penal law for example, but mostly we staunchly oppose the imposition of someone else’s will on us. These exceptions do not make us hypocrites because they are simply the pragmatic concessions necessary for a stable society. Our concept of personal freedom applies to all natural persons and, in a peculiarly American extension of that concept, to corporate persons. We admire the power of corporate persons because they seem to us to be proof regarding what can be accomplished when the concept of freedom is allowed to develop unfettered. It’s as if corporate persons magnify the concept of personal freedom in the sense that the freedom of corporations is greater than the sum of the freedom of the constituent human beings that animate the corporate person. Growth without limit in the corporate person is the natural evolutionary result in a society that worships personal freedom. It’s ultimately where Thoreau’s path leads. To rail against EMF pollution is therefore senseless because it is a necessary result of physical law and our belief in freedom, taken together. A far better response is to learn about EMFs, and then act to protect yourself.
