MissConstrue, you guys are very compassionate, he's lucky to have you. It's friends like you that make the difference to Aspies. I had someone offer me the same when I was unemployed recently, and even though I'd never dare take her up on it, it made a world of a difference just to hear her offer.

If autistic adults were familiar to them, they most likely would not be nearly as averse to including us, and eventually the next generation, in their society. When NTs have a realistic idea of what they can expect, they'll use their natural ability to connect with people, and things should get gra...

Willard, there have been several replies to your wonderful OP, both in my AWA blog and my Pre-Diagnosis Era Survivors Website set of forums.

However much you praise them after deflecting, they know you're deflecting, and they know you don't like their new outfit. In THAT sense, it doesn't work. It probably works in giving the person a good feeling in general, but also take into account that the person will white lie you back by making yo...

I'd like to have music files in my computer to add to photo presentations I make in Picasa. Can I save a song from a CD I have? If not, is it possible to download music from the internet for free and legally ?

AIT, I use that tactic a lot, but I also know it's not the panacea. People are not stupid and they know you're deflecting. Same if someone does it to me: I notice that they're deflecting. Still, it's better than telling them what they don't want to hear - which is the biggest affront you can do to a...

visagrunt, yep, you're totally right. I should clarify to myself what I want to find out. First of all, there's a qualitative difference between a cult pyramid and a pact pyramid. The former is about brainwashing (the victim is duped into believing it's good for her). The latter is a mutual agreemen...

how can you tell one person has exchanged their soul for a promise of protection, and another hasn't? That's indeed the most important question. I gave a couple examples above and have many more I've observed in people throughout my life, but in general the signs I myself know to look for at this s...

members were not rewarded for being holy or pure, but for how "spiritually aggressive" they were. What do you mean by "spiritually aggressive"? In my family, which I've discovered lately is very much a cult, you're rewarded with attention, a sense of belonging and warmth the more power (money+conne...

But what's the evidence that most people don't choose to belong to soul-sucking pyramids (religious, blood families, groups, whatever) in exchange for protection against sudden misfortune? This is what I'm trying to find...

Good question. No, it's not luck. It's talent. A massive money and connections (= power) making talent is a rare and sought after asset, that's why he/she's the top boss and all the others depend on him/her.
