The world needs ALL kinds of minds: dispelling the them versus us myth

Temple Grandin in a 20 minute speech on the Autistic Spectrum.  The need for a variety of input as well as output....rather then putting out.

One can consider this as Self Hacking, if one wishes to incorporate a wider point of view.

Some interesting points but why the fixation on the point that Aspies will save the world?  I do not discount anyone from coming up with good ideas or having a chance to do so.  I wonder if this has bled over into theological circles in terms of identifying who was an Aspie.
will HELP save the world?

Nothing can "save the world" from itself.  ;-) 

You have to save the cheerleader first...

Caitlinsdad, are you referring to LR as a Cheerleader?  >:-)   But what if they don't NEED saving.....
Then you would have to call her something else...

I resemble that remark.

I think the point is that, at the present time; "MOST" aspies are considered "broken" when they make up the innovators of the world.  Those that see things from a perspective that is not "already set";  the inventors, etc.  And they are being holed away as "diseased" or malfunctioning.  

If you want to see "theological aspies" in action, make a connection with the Christadelphian church.  If ever there was a religious gathering of mainly aspies, that is it.
