You know I bet if you went back a few hundred years to like pre-Industrial-Revolution Europe you'd find tons of autistic people in all the various villages and towns but instead of being marginalized they would just be doing what they wanted to do. Some little hamlet in Germany is like "Yeah, our blacksmith mostly keeps to himself but you should see the iron he produces" and stuff. "The shepherd will definitely tell you a little too much about his flock but we don't mind because his sheep are so well-cared-for."

So I just rediscovered the track "Sundown" by The Overlords in my music collection and it sounds... quite a lot like one of the tracks from Desert Dream by Kefrens. Such that the musician must have been inspired by Sundown.

Brains are weird.
musk is Gen X Trump. he made his money differently, he cares way way more about being seen as "cool", but it's the same dunning-krugeriffic, born-on-third-thinks-he-hit-a-triple, invincibly arrogant, insistent that no rules apply to him, monstrous politics, incompetent kleptocratic leadership, cult of personality with constant media circus spraying kerosene. the true power structure of our world unmasked. let's destroy it together
