Free advice said…Oliver you said that you have a pretty shitty life. Well boo fucking hoo. Millions of people around the world have a much worse life than you have, and they’re not even autistic. Open your fucking eyes.

Oliver Canby said…1. This blog is going nowhere, dude. Thanks for showing who you really are.

2. Believe me, I know that, and I recognize that. That still doesn’t change the fact that autism is a disease.

Oliver Canby said…1. Disorder, disease, same difference. The point is that it’s a bad thing.

2. I started this blog years ago when my life was a lot worse than it is now. I am aware every day that I have it better than the vast majority of the world. That still doesn’t change the fact that I want a cure for autism, if not for myself then for the people who need it more.

Free advice said…A cure for autism is not on the list of world priorities. There are much more important things to do, and that includes you.
January 21, 2016 at 8:45 PM

Oliver Canby said…1. It is a disease, and it does need a cure.

2. I am highly intelligent, and I do want a cure. So do the vast majority of autistic people, most of whom cannot speak.

3. A cure for autism is indeed on the agenda of the World Health Organization. Autism Awareness Day is celebrated every year on April 2 for this cause.

Oliver Canby said…Please tell me which innocent people will die. We both know what the real definition of neurodiversity is so please don’t pull that “human race” bullshit.

Anonymous said…They will be killed for refusing to use the cure.
January 27, 2016 at 12:04 PM

Oliver Canby said…No. That’s not the purpose of this amendment. People always have the right to refuse medical treatment for themselves, even if it is stupid. Neurodiversity goes over the line in that they seek to ban a cure for autism for everyone, even those who want it. That is intolerable.

Anonymous said…It doesn’t matter what the purpose is for the amendment. What I said is what will happen because too many parents, carers and members of society in general are scared of autism and will demand the death penalty for those who refuse to use the cure. Your amendment will make this possible and constitutional.
January 27, 2016 at 4:38 PM

Oliver Canby said…As far as I know, there is no one other than me who actually supports the death penalty for members of neurodiversity. Also, simply refusing a cure for oneself is not the same as opposing it for everyone. Neurodiversity would be carefully defined in statues passed by Congress after the amendment to make sure that it cannot be abused. Also, I take great offense that you say that parents, carers, and members of society are scared of autism. That is not true. The people who want to cure autism do so out of love, not hate. They have seen first hand how autism has destroyed their child’s life, and they want nothing but what is best for their child. I disagree that the widespread availability of a cure (should one become available) would cause one to be mandated, although it wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if it was. Neurodiversity also strangely opposes assisted suicide for the same reason. If anyone engages in fear mongering, it is neurodiversity. They try to generate fear that is not based on any real evidence at all, just hyperbole. They have shown no evidence that a cure would be a bad thing, or that it would be mandated if one was found. They seem to have this “we say it’s true, so it’s true” mentality. They also have failed to show any real evidence that assisted suicide will be abused for people with disabilities. If anything, they should be in favor of that, as it should always be one’s choice to live or die. Also, even if a cure was mandated (which it is extremely unlikely to be), that still wouldn’t be sufficient cause for the death penalty. Only the direct denial of a cure under the guise of “neurodiversity” would be.

Anonymous said…You’re wrong. Those who want a cure do it out of fear of autism and want it removed for this reason alone. They see nothing positive in it. Neither do you I would assume otherwise you wouldn’t be demanding it yourself. There is no love in this attitude. A cure would be mandated because of this fear. Society would absolutely demand it because autism is an expensive thing to look after leading to more taxpayers dollars being put in to it. Everyone wants lower taxes and anyone refusing to be cured would be a burden on taxpayers and they won’t stand for it. There is proof of abusing power in prevention/cure and that is with Downs Syndrome and the ability to detect it in the womb, leading to a high number of abortions. Your amendment is vague and is open to the very abuse you believe will be avoided. The only way to avoid this is to completely reword it and resubmit it from the beginning and withdraw the current version. You have stated that neurodiversity equals opposing a cure. That is partaking in neurodiversity under your amendment and that will invoke the death penalty, and thousands of innocent people will be killed.

Oliver Canby said…It isn’t fear. I can say that myself. I am not scared of autism, I simply want a better life for myself, with or without a cure. A cure does not exist, but if it did I would take it in a heartbeat. My life would be a lot better. Of course there is nothing positive about autism because it is a disease. There is nothing positive about cancer or AIDS or Lou Gehrig’s disease either. The autistic people who have done well in life have done so despite their autism, not because of it. The love of course is for the person, not the autism. To allow a child to continue to live with autism if a cure was available would be child abuse in my opinion. You are right that autism is very expensive for taxpayers, and that that is an incentive to find a cure (although if Bernie Sanders becomes President, he will tax anything and everything). However, if a cure was easily and readily available (which it is not currently, and likely will not be for a long time), the best the government could do would be to deny disability money to an autistic person who refused a cure, again assuming it was easily and readily available. The government would still be powerless to even lock them up, let alone execute them. The Down’s syndrome abortion problem has nothing to do with a cure or abuse of power. It has to do with the pro-choice “woman’s right to choose” bullshit. I am completely pro-life, and I oppose abortion for any reason. In fact, I believe anyone who receives an abortion should be given the death penalty. Abortion is murder and it should be treated as such. Murder is not a cure. A cure is meant to give life, not take it away. The Constitution is intentionally vague, as are nearly all common law documents. They’re meant to be interpreted by the courts. Most constitutional amendments say something like “Congress shall enforce this article via appropriate legislation” or something like that, and that is what would happen here. People would not be executed simply for refusing a cure. Neurodiversity goes beyond that. I also don’t think that the number of autistic people consciously refusing a cure would be in the thousands either. Those would not be executed, but I still think they are far from innocent. The ones who callously deny a cure to those who want, need, and deserve a cure are absolutely not innocent, and are in essence denying autistic people their lives. That is why it warrants the death penalty.

Anonymous said…They would be in the thousands. ASAN’s membership would run into the thousands alone, and not all autistic people who oppose a cure are even members either. You can have a better life for yourself without a cure. It might not be as good as some who are not autistic, but as long as you are winning that doesn’t matter. Like I said to you when I first commented. So why go after a cure if you don’t fear it? Do you hate it? I guess you would given you compared it to diseases that everyone fears, and hate is born out of fear. The courts would interpret your current amendment as I have explained it because the prosecution would seek that interpretation at least. They may even go after the wider interpretation and that would be a disaster to the point that any laws that are put in after ratification could be ruled as inconsistent with your amendment and therefore unconstitutional. Just like the gun law advocates wanting restrictions on guns and the courts preventing such laws because of the second amendment. Do you understand? You might not believe you fear autism in the basic sense, but many do in society and let it rule their decision making. Autism Speaks has drawn on that fear in the past and have been very successful. It would not have been if the fear did not exist.

I just thought of this. It is possible to avoid being killed, and that is to leave the USA. It would be a refugee situation and Canada would be the obvious target and they would almost certainly protest to Washington while calling for help from other countries in that commonwealth group that England preside over. It could be a serious diplomatic disaster that may make Washington revoke your amendment and as the proposer you could well be subject to a number of stealth style penalties from the CIA without knowing it. I hope I’m wrong of course but just something to think about.

Anonymous said…You rejected my previous comment. You are a callous individual who wants thousands of people to die and you won’t listen to reason. As of this moment in time I will fight you. I will prevent you from getting what you want. And I will not be alone. The whole community will oppose you with my guidance. Just as soon as I find out where you live we will set up a protest in your street and put posters up advertising you as a callous killer in waiting.

Oliver Canby said…I did not reject your comment. I have been away from this blog for a week dealing with other things going on in my life. Now I am back. Yes, of course I hate autism because it is a disease. Why wouldn’t I hate it? Hate is not born out of fear. Hatred of a disease is born out of love for the person who suffers from the disease. You make all this hyperbole about what might happen, and yet without an ounce of proof. The law can sometimes be abused, but not nearly to the extent that you are saying. You are essentially making the USA out to be a dictatorship, which of course is not the case. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with this. The Supreme Court has overturned certain laws which are in direct violation of the amendment. That is hardly abuse of the law or the constitution. You seem to have a rather paranoid view that everyone “fears” autism. Most people I have met do not fear it, but they do realistically accept that it is a disease that must be cured. You also fail to cite any specific examples of lawmakers expressing “fear” of autism and passing any sort of discriminatory legislation because of it, so until then it’s just hyperbole. Autism Speaks seeks to find a cure, and while they have made some videos that depict the unfortunate realities of autism, they are not trying to promote discrimination against autistic people as you suggest. Even the Autism Every Day video has a somewhat positive message, even though it accurately depicts the heartbreak that many autistic people and their families experience. They are far from the best organization in the world, and they have done nothing but sell out to neurodiversity of late. I won’t bother to respond to your second paragraph as it’s pure nonsense.

Your most recent comment will not be published as it is a clear threat. I am not taking it seriously, but I must warn you that anyone showing up without permission at either my current residence or my former residence will result in the police being called.
