[quote="Samantha Stephens AKA Elizabeth Montgomery"]“Art thou clumsy, ‘tis not thy own fault; cry witch. Art thou forgetful, blame not thyself; cry witch. Whatever thy failings, take not the fault upon thyself. ‘Tis more a comfort to place it on another. And how do we decide who is the witch? ‘Tis simple. Does someone speak differently from thee? A sign of witchery. Does he show different mannerisms? Witchery, of course. And should we not find differences in speech and mannerisms to support a charge of witchery, be of good cheer. There are other differences. What of him who looketh different? What of her whose name has a different sound? If one examineth one’s neighbors closely, he will find differences enough so that no one is safe from a charge of witchery. Is that what we seek in this new world? Methinks not. The hope of this world lieth in our acceptance of all differences and a recognition of our common humanity.”[/quote]

Works for neurodiversity too, does it not? When I type in [b]"witch hunt" autism[/b] in Google, I get all that Wankfield crap -- mercurial (in this case, of, or related to the element mercury) mental masturbation. That society is getting more judgmental, victim-blaming, and fascist doesn't seem to matter to almost everyone --with few exceptions -- Thom Hartmann and David Icke come to mind.

Even Joseph McCarthy wasn't this delusional and lacking in insight. All "autism" "research" is so misleading that they are actually projecting their own problems onto others. The research is the result of non-functional behavior of people who don't have a Theory of Reality and are capable of only one narrow Theory of Mind.

It has been determined that neurotypicals are less than one tenth as diverse as the neurodivergent ([url=][/url]).

Real studies have shown "that high-power subjects also tended to assume other people had the same information that they had (the "telepathic boss" problem - the boss assumes that everybody knows what he knows and want). They were also less accurate than low-power subjects at judging emotional expressions. There were also anticorrelations between reports of general feelings of being in power in one's life and tendency to take other's perspective. Overall high-power people seem to anchor too heavily on their own vantage point and this impairs their ability to consider what others see, think and feel." (see How Power Corrupts by Anders Sandberg

Interpretations of the self-serving "elite"isn't convincing either. Here are more realistic interpretations:

...autistics are more likely to be visual-spatial thinkers, whereas the majority of the population consists of auditory-sequential thinkers. A visual-spatial thinker, upon hearing the question "Where will Sally look for her marble?" will translate that question into mental images of Sally, the marble, and the location of the marble. An auditory-sequential thinker, on the other hand, will focus on the action of looking as a sequential process: Sally first has to look for the marble before she can find it. There is an implied "first" in the question—where is the first place that Sally will look for the marble—but a child who processes language visually may not understand that the question has a sequential component. Instead, such a child may interpret the question as "Where will Sally have to look to find her marble?" (Deconstructing Sally Anne

Other interpretations are also on the same page.
