Are We All Mistuning Our Instruments, and Can We Blame the Nazis?

And now, this!
Continuing with the music theme from the last post, and drawing out the conspiracy theme that is gaining ground in thinking about banking brings us…

Are We All Mistuning Our Instruments, and Can We Blame the Nazis?

Musicians don’t agree on much, but they tend to concur that the note A in the middle of the treble staff should be tuned to 440 Hz. The International Standards Organization even issued guidelines to this effect back in the ’50s. But the conspiracy theorists will tell you that this pernicious tuning was promoted by the Nazis—Joseph Goebbels, chief propagandist for the Third Reich, imposed the 440 Hz tuning as part of a heinous plan to warp the consciousness of the masses.

Works synergistically with the fluoride in the water, the theory goes.
OK, I made that last part up.
 This is the sort of question that can only be settled empirically.
Head on over to this site and listen to the Nazi tuning and the older, gentler, calmer, greener, organic tuning and see which one you like better.
