The Devil's Staircase

As China rolls the electric cars off the assembly line while Americans sit around still wondering, “When do I get to be rich like they said?”—

I think of the Autistic children. So many now.

The rate of occurrence of Autism has not changed, as many have proffered, it is only that we are better able to count them.

Perhaps, true. But even if there has always been this density of Autistic beings, (1 in 150 eight year olds, to 1 in 5,000 eight year olds, depending on the study), you have to wonder, why so many Autistic kids? Are they speciating?

Or are these kids, simply, the future of all mankind? A twisting inward of a species living in its own filth?

Where are we going?
