    • Duke University history professor Nancy MacLean recently declared that many conservatives and libertarians "seem to be on the autism spectrum" and that they "don't feel solidarity or empathy with others."
    • MacLean was delivering a lecture on her controversial book, "Democracy in Chains," which is intended to explore "the roots and agenda of the radical right."
    "She was delivering a presentation on her book’s conspiratorial thesis about the American libertarian movement, which she claims originated with Nobel Prize-winning economist James Buchanan. Almost exactly one hour into the event, an audience member asked her “where his motivations” and ideas came from, and whether those are ideas are “ones of personal greed or…malevolence.”

    After praising the interrogator for asking “such a profound question,” MacLean speculated that libertarian views might be the result of autism.

    “As an author, I have struggled with this, and I could explain it in different ways. I didn’t put this in the book, but I will say it here,” she answered. “It’s striking to me how many of the architects of this cause seem to be on the autism spectrum—you know, people who don’t feel solidarity or empathy with others, and who have difficult human relationships sometimes.”"

    edit: This James Buchanan, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_M._Buchanan not the president btw.

  4. Why doesn't anyone read Leo Strauss any more?

    He's supposedly conservative.

    I suggest reading him, though, although I'm supposedly a liberal Berniefag.

  9. Nearly all the lolcows I watch are rabidly left autists.

    I can accept that the alt right are full of autists as well, but I'm not interested in reading their racist shit and ignore it. But if you're going to call out the right as autists then you really need to consider the spastics on your side as well.

  11. Isn't this the high level civil discourse equivalent of "lol liberals are all heart and no brain"? What the fuck is reddit tier taunting doing in universities?
