The Cosmic Envelope

August 10, 2012
One of my observations is that many (maybe most) people in the online Autistic community are libertarians. While libertarianism may be the path of least resistance for Autists, I think it is a harmful choice.

Autists, perhaps more than anyone, need to move beyond individualism/libertarianism to what philosopher Roy Bhaskar calls the cosmic envelope – that is, to unity.

Sustainable development, focusing on the needs of others and of generations to follow, is, to me, a practical application of the cosmic envelope.
