Ever notice how the ways we can render capitalism irrelevant always seem to point to "build real community, with real communal ties, where everyone is supported"

This pamphlet, 'Too Many of Whom? Too Much of What?' was produced by No One Is Illegal, back in 2010. At the time there were a number of outlets, both mainstream and supposedly ‘radical’ that were pushing the idea that population was one of the main sources of environmental destruction. To confront the argument that controls on migration or on population as a whole was a solution to climate disaster, NOII put together this incredibly well researched, yet relatively easy to read discussion paper.

These arguments have once again began to rear their ugly heads within the environmental movement, and it is important to refute them.

Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.

annsautism.blogspot.com/2019/0

"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."

In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.

This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%

anti-LGBT protesters in birmingham threw eggs at LGBT people who had been invited by the school to hang banners promoting love and diversity.

centrists immediately started crowing that this is what the left has brought on itself.

if you can't see the difference between milkshaking a fascist and egging LGBT people, you might be a centrist piece of shit
