I know my line of approach, and tone in this blog has been quite the 'wrong one' in many respects but, it is the only one I know to take. Just as I know my Pre Rain Man Autism and have completed the Autism Experience like those in our anthropology have, I also know the new modern autism doesn't resemble much of what we are about. The invented autism of modern times is just that invented and embellished and now moralized for the greater good, There is even a postage stamp for gosh sake. It has everything modern and media related but, nothing anchored in its best performing asset; its past.
Only in the modern age can the "BEST" autism research be brought sold and traded like stock in the markets. Just like government is known for not being the best performing entity Autism research like government is self serving. The 'truth' is what ever has been brought and paid for and invented and conjured up. Modern Autism is so different from the old autism but yet the lowest functioning people probably the real Autisitcs simply are termed low functioning and left to do their own thing.
When I talk with those in the modern end of the spectrum both aspies and parents it is obvious we are on two different planets. Modern Autism's Curse assures the modern Autistic persons remain as dumb as possible. (with the best of intention) Modern autism Is filled with all kinds of problems we never knew. Few of us in the anthropology were behavior troubles and most of were in fact loners that never misbehaved. As I have said before it seems like only 1/3 of all autism folks both past and present 'know us.' If Modern Autism was doing so well and knew so much how come modern Aspies are graduating school and reading at the first grade level? How Come our Anthropology for the most part does a traditional life, many of drive and hold traditional jobs and even some of us excel in our fields? All they have to do sallow their pride, admit to a few errors and copy our anthropology's success. An Autistic mind sees the logic to that statement but the traditional thinker would NEVER in a million years admit they jumped the gun in autism research. They have created a culture in some respects that screams 'SUE ME" and if they admitted to us lots of aspie spectrum folks would have very good cases against autism.
Having learned from the master's in autism I can be trusted (humor) If I ever win the pools (lotto) that I will indeed buy all the autism publicity I can get and present the old untold unadmitted Autism story to the world. It seems academic re$earch including double-blind autism experiments are not good for business, the big business of autism.
