It Is S.A.D.: The Leftist Brain Exposed
organization. She was mildly autistic. For the last 20 years, I have been up and personal
with autism in my own family and the family of friends and acquaintances. Autistic
people are not rare.
You have studied with me, the differences in detail, the examples of their thinking, the
logical inconsistencies, the major difference, their profile, and then we began to zero in
on the brain for our answer.
I have not found any brain abnormality that fits the Leftist better than autism. Autism
defines Leftists. Not all autistic people are Leftists, but most are. In their struggle to
accommodate and care for themselves they, like the spoiled child, become very myopic.
Socialism looks and feels good to them.
Autism is a relative recent study but it is a condition which has always existed. The
present work to set it up as a special psychotic problem began in the 40‘s. Doctor Leo
Kanner introduced the label ?early infantile autism? in 1943. At this time, there are many,
including me, who are putting their oar into the water. Before all the present hubbub, we
used to call severe cases of autism as ?nare-do-wells?. You know the kid who just did not
fit in, couldn‘t do well in school, or any other thing he or she got involved in. The worst
of them were basically unemployable. Even mild forms can have trouble holding on to a
job. Something about not understanding that being on time is important or that dressing
In my Webster‘s 2nd Edition 1979, Autism is defined as follows.
?…in psychology, a state of mind characterized by day dreaming, hallucinations, and
disregard of external reality?
As we now know, this old definition was way too simplistic. Going back a bit, the term
autism was first used by a Swiss psychiatrist, Eugene Bleuler, in 1910, as an attempt to
define a type of schizophrenia. He took the word from the Greek word ?autos? (meaning
self). Now you know where ?Automatic?
came from. There it lay, until 1938 when Hans Asperger of the Vienna University
Hospital used Bleuler‘s word in a lecture about child psychology. He was studying one
aspect of autism which he described. In time, his description became known as Asperger
Syndrome. It was not formally accepted until 1981.
This was after one Kranner redefined it in 1943, presenting his study at John Hopkins
Hospital. His study was of 11 youths who had strikingly similar behavioral similarities.
He used such terms as ?autistic aloneness and insistence on sameness?. It took some time
for this new term to rid itself of its attachment to Schizophrenia. It is now conceded it is
not that, but is classified as a neural dysfunction. In common lingo, a wiring problem.
Today, it is considered one of the things to look for in school children who do not do
well, but otherwise appear bright.
Personally, in my family and the family of friends, I have studied it closely.
If you go back to the words of Bleuer, when he said the following,?autistic withdrawal of
the patient to his fantasies, against which any influence from outside becomes an
intolerable disturbance.? You have just described the Leftist who continues to pursue
Socialism when all history dictates that it fails. They will not tolerate a different view.
