This is probably the first, and only, critical word you will see about this woman and her disease: aspergers. Aspergers (and high functioning autism) is by definition a lack of the neurons necessary in higher animals for kindness and mutually-beneficial social interaction. To obtain resources, people with this disease either act threateningly, or deceive -- Grandin deceives, for the benefit of the cattle industry which is apparently at the historical core of capital, and especially human capital, which is slavery and wage-slavery. The implicating math is stupid-simple, but metacognitive programming being what it is, this disease is installed into the civilized human brain as something beneficial , yet also to be pitied--this disease, and only this disease, is what is killing us. Ending this disease, with Grandin being an excellent (harvest) start, is the only chance the human race has. Your metacognitive programming is not an excuse, and does not make you innocent in humanity's collective sui-genocide. I believe I am innocent and alone in this innocence, because I, in my solitude, can do the the simple math.
The simple math of Aspergers/HFA (high-functioning autism)
In the simple math of the aspergers or HFA (high-functioning autism) conspiracy we have a neural defect (often genetic) that prevents the humane, empathic neurons of the brain from forming or being maintained -- this is the cause of cruelty, and in high numbers, simply and easily explains the pain and suffering inflicted by inhumane humans on other organisms better than any other explanation. This became obvious in the early-2000s when neural failure was linked to "protein signalling errors," but the social implications are only becoming obvious now. The academic method of research, called empiricism, seems well-designed to prevent "evidence" from forming that might threaten its rational and often inhumane methods, and the cruelty of the "western" civilization that it--empirically--supports, hence the need for whole-modelling-systems that can see life in the "big picture."
