Neurogenics - Exterminating Autistic Brilliance

Autism is classed as a "disability" and "disorder".  My book shows it is anything but.  In fact more autistic thinking is needed to solve society's problems. 

Instead we have the scandalous situation where our disabling and disordered society is killing and injuring autistic people at a savage rate.  Life-expectancy is about 54 for people on the autistic spectrum and a suicide rate about 15 times higher than in the general population.  This is because society has become increasingly hostile to autistic thinking.  As a result there is more chaos and disorganisation resulting in massive increases in mental health problems.

The solution is to move away from labelling autistic people as "disabled" and "disordered" and to instead acknowledge that the reverse is the case.  In fact it is the lack of autistic thinking in decisions that drive employment, benefits and society, and in the way people communicate generally, that is leading to destructive chaos.  This includes our unproductive economy, lack of organisation in the delivery of services such as health and transport, and in confusing and deceitful communication that results in more and more mental health problems. 

We need more direct communication and more thinking free from social constraints.  That is what autistic people are better at than the general population.

DWP suicides to be investigated by National Audit Office

Ever since a client committed suiced whilst I was working at the CAB, I've seen the DWP doubling down such as to increase the risk to disabled claimants with more dying as a result.

In particular, the DWP will give no ground at all on what it sees as its absolute right to repeatedly and pointlessly reassess chronically sick and disabled ESA claimants.  It does not have to do this as all ESA awards are indefinite.

When the ESA (and increasingly now Universal Credit sickness group) reassessment regime is lauched a bureaucratic obstacle course is unleashed that even many fully fit people would struggle to get through.  Yet this is regularly cut loose against chronically sick and disabled people.  One false move during that process can result in the removal of essential subsistance payments enforcing destitution on the claimant.  Some can't take it.

Now there is to be an investigation by the National Audit Office because the DWP is so reluctant to share any information about what it knows ...
