Entry for April 30, 2008

April 30, 2008

I would suggest that there are different types of liberatarians (though I am neither): critical libertarians and knee-jerk libertarians. If one eliminated all the knee-jerk libertarians, I suspect that the number of aspie libertarians would diminish substantially.

I am not convinced that any one social construction, considered critically, is more “aspie.” However, a knee-jerk libertarianism might be appealing to some aspies for a variety of reasons, including a presumed lack of empathy (theory of mind).
