I’ve had an idea for a book
>be me
>autist
>notice autists are more vocal online now
>it’s all “uwu my stims” “I have 18 personalities” “no fatphobia here” progressive stuff
>I don’t like this one bit
>I want to write a novel about the autistic experience
>I don’t want it to be this progressive LGBT+ stuff
>I want it to be something that can actually express the absurdity and awkwardness of the autistic experience to non-autists

I know people can point to the curious incident as a novel with an autistic POV but Christopher comes off as a more high dependency, more naive autist even if he’s found ways to cope with it (like taking A levels that are all maths based and saying he wants to find a wife to do his cooking and cleaning). I want to write from a more “high functioning low dependency” perspective.

The pitch:
>POV is an autist man
>he is a civil servant working for the department of work and pensions.
>He works out funding formulas that suit the needs of the party in power whilst screwing over locals (e.g intentionally reducing funding so he can put it back up next year and the ruling party can say they increased funding for social programs) but outside of this he has no idea how the department works or what it does outside a very basic outline
>He knows what he is doing is wrong but is scared of change and doesn’t see any other opportunity and has no connections to use his maths skills outside of his current field
>not poverty-porn. This man will live comfortably and the novel will focus more on the social aspect of his life

It’s not trying to be a meme I think. I’m pretty sure it’s just openly mocking the insane people who are pretending to have illnesses for clout. Tiktok is full of these lunatic zoomers who pretend they have 37 different personalities because they have nothing interesting otherwise.

If I write it I think it will be more of a dry comedy than anything ideological so don’t worry.

I’ve read up on Hans Asperger and I know I would live and you would be sent to the camps for being work-shy. Get out the basement and interact with autistic people. I grant you there’s some that don’t meet the cognitive criteria of personhood but I’d be willing to wager most do.

Interesting premise, and I'd definitely give it a read, but I worry I'd be disappointed if our understandings of political economy differed too greatly (though the dynamic you establish between the main character's job and politics is promising).

A dry comedy about autism is going to be hella exclusionary due to the implicit double meanings.

My opinions on political economy:
>GDP is the fakest measurement there is. Just look at Ireland.
>Tourism=/= GDP and whoever said this is an idiot
>Banks are all out to get you
>A good economy has many small, independent entrepreneurs and artisans and by entrepreneurs I mean someone who makes and provides a good or service not someone who dropships goods over the internet or drives people around in an uber. These entrepreneurs should have decent liquid savings once sound money and the Stirling standard are reestablished but in the current climate it would make more sense to invest in land, tools or precious metals.
>I hate rentierism
>I despise Keynesians they’re literally green line go brrrr idiots who think if you shuffle the cash around enough people will forget your in trillions of debt
>Foreign free trade is bad because the CCP and the commies are out to get you. Free trade blocs like EU and proposed African Union free trade are basically suicide pacts you can make with your neighbours. Currency unions are generally just hegemonies unless it’s a very small currency union amongst rough equals like the one the Nordic countries used to have.

okay you are still on the honeymoon phase of democracy, so you need to understand the bourgeois who did the revolution don't give a shit about the republic in the first place.
Here is a quick recap of the last 300 years:
The whole purpose of the bourgeois was to remove the kings and priests off of their backs. priests and kings took their money and told them what to do , who to marry, daily rules and so on . it was awful for the bourgeois bug.

The typical life of a bourgeois is going to orgies at night and then during day getting bored since they have a very shallow meaningless job or even just be trust fund babies and all they do in the afternoon is getting ready to go parties in the evening.
From time to time they want to feel like good guys so back in the day they would go to church on the sunday morning after their saturday night orgy.

Atheism has no substance. What you heard about republics, democracy, humanism was just made up on the fly by the revolutionaries to sell to the peasants the idea of their revolution against the kings. It's the same revolutionaries who made up ecology.
Democracies, republics and humanism are just an ad, a commercial. Democracies are based on a protestation against monarchies. There is nothing else behind them. democracies are not about giving power to peasants.
And since now kings have accepted losing power, the DNA of democracies that is protestation is compromised. Democracies should not even exist today, there a no king and yet democrats are still in power. Well they are because they know that the peasants love the idea of protestation. So the big idea of the democrats is to make democracies the enemy. This way the democrats are both idolized and vilified by the peasants. It's the democrats who decide what topic will be vilified and what topic will be idolized. Its the democrats who decide when protestation will occur and under what form. This way whatever the peasants think about, it will be about democrats, not kings of other form of society.

>> No.21246340

>>21246337

Ecology and Wokism is just one hose narrative framework where the peasants can protest while the democrats do nothing about it. Reminder that freedom of speech is a death warrant. The more peasants babble about democrats, the less they will escape the democrats.
The advantage of wokism and ecology over marxism is that even though they were both made up by the democrats, marxism changed the rules too much, ie rules about money. democrats live for money power and sex addiction. They love this shit. You can think of ecology as an impotent marxism, ie wokism and ecology are ''marxism even more compatible with democracy, ie running a business''.
All the stuff you heard about ESG and CO2 pollution and metrics of pollution (ie CO2 equivalents) are completely manufactured, unorganic, opaque and became a business in itself.
>How do they justify this with regulators?
They claim it's a risk that has to be calculated into the interest rates.
The reasoning is typically shit like
>look at this area that was devastated by a flood
>that only happened because of climate change
>companies who aren't environmentally friendly are exposing us to this risk
>so therefore, they should pay to compensate for it
right now the E is used as a trojan horse for the S and G. the latter two do not have much of an impact for now, but you can be sure it will be basically exclusively the S once this system has been properly established.

Now the last decade shows what the future will be:
-mass popularization of internet so that NPCs can use their precious '''''''''''freedom of speech''''''''''
-mass popularization of trannism thanks to harry poter and the troon emma watson
-mass popularization of negro culture with GTA SA
-mass crisis with bureaucrats and bankers pulling the best heist of all democracies, with as usual protests by NPCs

to appease the bugs, wokeism was pushed forwards so that bureaucrats (read leftists) and bankers secured their ruling position.
the next step is virtual life : Physical Society won't collapse. You have to take the historical view to understand why: you need the poor to define the rich and get rich

After wokism to replace communism after the worlds wars, the whole VR thing is just the new version of the ghettoization of the democratic republics. Reminder that it's the bourgeois merchants who created this system 250 years ago and already at this time the wagecucks noticed that all the freedom the bourgeois talked about were more for the bourgeois than the cucks. Then it was the statu quo due to humanists conveniently creating TWO (2) fucking world wars and a cold war. Then the communist crap was replaced by identity politics.

It’s true that they’re prone to abuse from parasitic filth but republics are glorious when the right men are in charge, the citizenry aren’t idiots and the electorate excludes those who are, and the state rewards citizens for genuinely patriotic behaviour instead of currying favour with industrialists and beaurocrats (e.g. giving land to militiamen and conscripts to thank them for their service and create a prosperous class of landowning yeomen).

Personally I think a monarchy with a legislative diet elected from a qualified electorate (I.e more qualifications than just citizenship and being older than 18) is the best route.
