->There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can't compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks... to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don't give a shit what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you — your kid is not autistic. He's just stupid. Or lazy. Or both.

Speaking of which, technology is inherently evil and is the exclusive province of the Bad Guys.

->Rather than our society heeding the wise counsel of scientific and technical experts, we now deride, distrust and defund them because they are perceived as [[SlobsVersusSnobs threatening, know-it-all elites]] who offer opinions little better than that of the often misinformed common man.

->Although physicians have been trying to base their craft on science for hundreds of years, it’s really only been in the last century or so that they’ve succeeded. Yet still some would like to go back to the way it was. They [[NostalgiaFilter yearn for the days]] when doctors were “healers” and shamans, the way medicine was for hundreds and hundreds of years before science intruded.\\\
Unfortunately, one of those physicians happens to be "America’s doctor".

->The child who dies in agony because his parents believe dialysis is 'against God's will' is no less dead than a child burned at the altar of Molech. In fact, his death was infinitely more cruel and unnecessary (and often even more agonizing), since children were usually only sacrificed in pagan times during periods of grave social crisis, such as droughts or plagues. The ancients didn't know any better--people today have no excuse.
