    It sounds like the title to a tawdry tell-all book.

    Kai,

    OT but important:

    You recently retweeted that “The world needs more passionate geeks” – these passionate geeks are largely people either on the Autism Spectrum (ie they have Asperger’s Syndrome/High Functioning Autism) or are in what is described as the “Broader Autistic Phenotype”

    This is a quote from Prof Michael Fitzgerald of Trinity College Dublin:

    “Genetic screening for Asperger’s syndrome, which we could be capable of doing in 20 years time – would be disastrous.

    Without people with Asperger’s syndrome we would still be chatting to each other in our caves. They are the ones who develop tools, invented computers and will find us a new environment when we have finally finished with this planet.

    You’ll find them in universities, in the computer industry, in engineering and mathematics. If we destroy them it could lead to the extinction of the human race.”

    Your good Buddy Marc SIrkin is working with an organisation that wants to “Prevent and cure anything along the Autism Spectrum”.

    This is, without hyperbole, an eugenicist agenda the like of which wouldn’t have been out of place in Nazi Germany. And I can promise you, as someone who has many Jewish friends and colleagues, I throw around the term Nazi casually.

    Please wake up to the reality of the situation.
