Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps: We're All One or None! Exceptions Eternally? None!!

An absolute must see. Dr. Bronner, "third generation master soap-maker," produces soaps with a social message. So much message, in fact, that his labels are entirely filled with text, including gems like:
  • Absolute cleanliness is Godliness! Who else but God gave man Love that can spark mere dust to life! Poetry, uniting All-One! All brave! All life! Who else but God! "Listen Children Eternal Father Eternally One!"

  • Each swallow works hard to be perfect pilot-provider-builder-trainer-teacher-lover-mate, no half-true hate! So, each day like a bird, perfect thyself first!

  • Essene, Chinese, and other birth control methods must reduce birth or Easter Isle type overpoulation destroys God's Spaceship Earth!
Think that's nuts? It's only the beginning. Seems the man was placed against his will in an insane asylum, where for the six months before he escaped he endured electric shock therapy. He has since passed on, but his "message on the bottle" remains. The soap is all-natural and environmentally friendly. Just remember:

Warning! Keep Out of Eyes! Wash Out with Water! Don't Drink Soap! Dilute! Dilute! or Wet Skin Well! OK!

Say what you will about Dr. Bronner and the funny labels, but that "magic" liquid soap is great stuff. Bob Hope continued on with his "dirty hippie and a bar of soap" jokes for decades after the 60's ended, but the real hippies knew that Hope didn't have a clue about the refreshing minty tingle of Dr. Bronner's Aquarian icon of cleanliness. And those labels, where the good Doctor preached his goofy over-the-top sermons on the dangers of nuclear proliferation, over-population, and environmental destruction, and on the benefits of universal education, freedom of conscience, and world peace -- yeah, what a goofball.
