The Balance of Things
Naturally, autism is known to be a "mess" by everyone associated with the spectrum from those of us that have overcome to the "experts" that only know part of the autism story. I really feel for those in the modern spectrum as progress has thwarted the very hope of autism. I never even dreamed my biggest challenge was overcoming autism that I didn't know I had. Autism was largely undiagnosable until the 1970s and many of us missing the modern idea of autism do very well. Our never in print thought process is really pretty easy but, the empire set help to help naturally makes the wrong assumptions.
Autism lost its way and our hope in recent years as well meaning 'experts' started making movies. The results are just wild and out of control. Our 'Expert' friends are now on a mission that has changed from helping autistic people to defending their ignorance with even more ignorance. Even worse by admitting to the fact there are many more people in the world that do more than Temple Grandin does and we have connected autism thoughts to normal ones. NONE not a bit of our thought process has been in a text book before and it might well be the building blocks of the human mind. Oh it gets 'better' despite linking MR/DD autism to Einstein ,Rain Man and even our "normal autism group" we are the "very retarded" person being researched to death and thus we can't possibly have figured out our natural to us thought process that our "Experts" don't use. They don't even know the right questions to ask? Yet if they knew the autism we do suddenly their autism would make sense. It would also be very obvious our autism that works was the forgotten autism of time gone by. A billion dollar Autism Empire is not about to stand by and let the facts of working autism ever get in its way.
Now Autism likes to parade Rain Man and other savants in front of the camera and thinks its really cool someone that presented so dumb is so smart and yet when our anthropology takes the Savant's thoughts all the way to the bank and hones them into real life thoughts we can't be admitted to? Suddenly were as stupid as a sack of rocks again? You must admit until now no MR/DD condition was ever presented with a live working group of successful people and while this should be the best news on earth (and it is) Autism professionals are bumbling this chance at real life real world autism success as they fear their feelings might be hurt and their empire might be tarnished. GASP even more important our autism is the autism that time forgot and by looking over the Crypto Sensitive Autism Guidelines (if you can find them) it will be obvious the facts Dr Rimalnd left out of his new age Autism and if you re-insert those facts into modern Autism suddenly mankind is back on track again.
Now how do you explain 30 years of people in group homes that didn't have to be there? Modern Autism via the Autism Society of America has been doing its level best to keep us hidden for years now and their wishy washy logic that justifies our being ignored is more along the lines of self preservation of the autism status quoe. They indeed failed the sincerity test and if they were true honest caring researchers they would jump at the chance to discover mankind's DNA style mental health roots. You can bet if we supported their Empire we too would be loved again.
I just presented Autism Officials a kind letter (in this blog & registered mail) begging one more time they step up to the plate and admit to us. I welcome their response and will post it here unedited and directly quoted. I mean really what do they have to loose, there is still enough power to the autism empire they can admit to us. Then all they need to do is embroil us in scandal and expert opinion and then run us off to pasture again. They can then claim they did their job and it will appear that they did but, trust me old figured out autism will always work no matter how hard they pray it will not.
