Recommended NYT Article: Myth of Autistic Shooter



Great article debunking idea that people with autism or Asperger's Syndrome are more likely to act violently:

The Myth of the ‘Autistic Shooter’

By ANDREW SOLOMONOCT. 12, 2015


http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/12/opinion/the-myth-of-the-autistic-shooter.html?emc=edit_th_20151012&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=32962000&_r=0

[excerpted] The wish to hurt others is tied not to autism but to psychopathy, which manifests in a deficiency or absence of empathy and remorse. Some autistic people may not recognize why they cause distress; psychopaths don’t care that they cause distress.

Autistic people may see the world from a singular, personal perspective; psychopaths are often cunning manipulators who act according to perceived self-interest without regard for the destruction they cause....


Majia here: Autism and Asperger's are debilitating conditions in that they complicate social relations but the syndromes are distinguishable from psychopathy and the people I've known on the autism spectrum have a CONSCIENCE whereas the psychopaths I've known do not.

I believe its highly probable that we are increasing the incidents of autism and psychopathy, in addition to other disorders, through our environmental contaminants:

  1. Thats a good one Majia, I have been watching stories roll out about Aspergers mostly in disbelief. One psychiatrist even called it Asperbergers.....sheesh, he is making a diagnosis on limited main street media information, and can't even spell it.

    truly horrendous.

  4. THERE ARE SEVERAL types of autism I can think of majia. Please do the research. There are several trisomy induced autisms , there is fragile x autism. All can be caused by ionizing radiation indusced genetic defects. Autistic and asperger kid can grow up in horribly dysfuntional households and be abused too like so many other kids in this crazy dysfunction society. They end up having other problems on top of autism and aspergers like a lot of other kids in this nutty over the top suburban sprawled atomic age society. We live in a society that is beyond comparison for stress levels and dysfunction. A lot of it came with the destruction of the traditional family and creation of the nuclear family excuse the pun. The nuclear family was engineered by corporate america to create artificial family units so corporations like ge and haliburton could do govt contracts and move slave families all over heck to build atomic processing facilities npps do government contracts bomb making miliitary industrial comlex projects. Its all very inbred and sick.

    Most mentally ill people and autistics are harmless. Many shooters are on antidepressants because they were stressed out of their minds abd depressed when beforevthey went off. The know it all reciliner pyschiatrists and nuclear physicists on enenews do not know anything and seem to revel in their ignorance and meanness. Fukushima is such serious business and it is minimized by a bunch of clowns spooks, trolls and money mongers. Very tragic. are not any real professional commentators left on enenews or activists.

    JoyB got chased off by a troll psychopath.
    There are wallpaper trolls. Their are know it all goodwinian hormesis promoting trolls. There are koch brother agenda people on enenews. There are crazy contra agent trolls who say enenews is a front for big coal. Enenews has lost its relevence. Go to Caferadrab fellow readers if you truly care.

    Leuren moret trolls who say haarp and missles
    caused fukushima

    Leuren Moret trolls and shills who say all all the fukushima radiation has been pushed out of the atmosphere by magical haarp like devices invented by the russians that push ions into space. Dos about had a cow when he saw that one. Helen Caldicott must whince when she sees that kind of spook disinformation. Even George Montbiot is not as scary as that.
    Leuren morets insane non science disinformation is way worse than the parade of of dog and pony show pronuke shills that seem so contrived and shoe up regulary on enenews.

    There are some very nice people like dr goodheart and majia but for the most part worse than fukushima diary chat. Dana is right. James corbett is associated with benjamin fulford and his website formerly downplayed the impact of fukushima. sometimes slips in some nuggets that get past people. Ian goddard is is featured on ron adams site. too bad.

    1. Interesting...

      RE autism: I would argue that phenotypic labels just group symptoms and often individuals don't fit easily in a single category.

      I also agree that biology and social environment both contribute to symptoms and characteristics.

    2. many abusive people have been abused themselves. In the case of autism many are the victims of severe bullying.

  5. sorry i meant goddarite hormesis shills on enenews. tthey took over like dana said. Kevin Kamps thinks leurem moret and ian goddard are spooks. Nico is right in so many ways although kinda negative and generalized. I like him non pretentipus. GMI is funny and true. Four leafed clovers were never common before fuku. Geiger counters can be useful. People live longer because of all the frickin antibiotics not because our cellsare poeered by the small amount of shielded frickin k40 in the environment and magic hormesis and the homeopathic effect of radiation hormesis as one shill on enenews subtly promotes over and over again. Benjamin fulford is connectthedots2 . The troll who has terrorized dan so long on youtube. Fulford is heavily associated with james corbett a fuku flfencesitter in tokyo
