Conformity Is A Prison

Following on from what I said on Sunday, normality is the prison of conformity that a society surrounds an individual with so that they behave, act and work according to accepted norms. As long as you don't do anybody any harm or hurt anybody else, mentally, emotionally or physically, what does it matter?

On Thursday 11th May 2000, twenty days before I was diagnosed with AS, I told a Clinical Psychologist that mass uniformity in society scares the shit out of me, and it still does. In life you are going to meet people who are different to yourself, and from other people, and not everybody is the same, and it takes all sorts to make the world go around.

We are all individuals, and the true and genuine Psychopathy in life is that which insists on everybody being like everybody else or Sheep or clones.

I remember when I heard a song about 12 years ago, and it was a local singer, and it was about two boys called Michael and Ben. Michael was Autistic and Ben was not. Ben was into things such as fighting with teachers, with other kids, being disruptive in classes, playing truant and being a general nuisance.. the song went "They say Michael's crazy, but there's nothing wrong with Ben".
