I saw an old thread by repatriate comparing elliot rodger to winston wu. Lol. He said i sound flat on video so i may have Asperger's. Is that true?
Do we have Asperger's? Semi maybe? If so does that explain why we are on different wavelength than mainstream and sharper and deeper and not connected to the mainstream hive mind? Have any of you ever wondered about that?
Does Asperger's really exist? Or is it just a negative label on anyone deep and introverted and too intellectual and nonconformist and is on a deeper wavelength than the masses? Have you looked up the checklist criteria for Asperger's? How much of the list applies to us?
I looked up the checklist for narcissism. I may have 40 percent of the traits. however its nebulous because a lot of the traits are just general selfishness which is normal in the modern "every man for himself, do whats best for you" type world right?
But Asperger's are functional when alone right? Didn't a lot of geniuses have Asperger's?
Don't u wonder if it explains why we don't connect with most "normal" people?
Some Chinese guy mocking my Taiwan article said that only delusional people think they are the only ones normal while everyone else is not. So mainstream people like him see me as delusional when I say I feel like a survivor in a zombie apocalypse or the last survivor in the movie "invasion of the body snatchers". Lol
Besides some severe mental disorders, I don't think there is a standard concept of "normality" in society. Societies segregate those who do not conform to the prescribed and expected behaviours, which change over time and place.
Look how funny conformism in the UK used to be behaving in a disciplined way during the peak of the Covid pandemic, respecting social distancing, wearing face masks and gloves, and so on. When the Black Lives Matter protests started, all of a sudden it's perfectly OK for young people to gather in the thousands or hundreds of thousands in large city squares, all without a single thought about social distancing, all perfectly approved, in fact applauded, by the mainstream media and politicians.
There is a funny story my Dad used to tell me when I was a kid and stuck with me. It went like this. An old farmer was going back home with his young son and the mule, after a hard day in the fields. As they walked through the lanes, people would watch and comment.
Boy asked his dad to ride the mule, so dad lifted him and sat him on the mule. The next man they passed by saw them and thought to himself "Look at that young brat, riding the mule like a king while his poor father is walking after a hard day!". Then the boy wanted to get down so dad and his son continue walking with the mule by their side.
The next man the passed by saw them and thought to himself "Can't believe how stupid those two guys are, walking after a hard day when they have a mule next to them!". After a while, dad got tired and jumped on the mule.
They passed by another man, who saw them and thought to himself "Look at that selfish old man, letting his young son walk while he rides...he's just a child!".
After a little while, boy jumped on the mule, too. That very moment a woman saw them and thought "Oh, poor mule, a whole day working in the fields and now he's got to take the burden of two men riding him for God knows how long!".
The story is basically saying that, whatever one does, there will always be someone disagreeing and criticising. All four situations were perfectly normal for the farmer, his son and the mule. Yet, people had something mean to say.
Conforming to a rule, a policy, a trend, an ideology just for the sake of complying, hoping to some rewards or respect, is not only silly, it's also useless, especially in this time and age when people are constantly swallowing whatever the mainstream media (which now include all the large social media) tells them to think, or do.
Better to be just yourself, @Winston
. You will be criticised anyway but, at least, you will follow your conscience and heart. That's what I tried to do, too.
