The Church of Social Justice

The Church of Social Justice

What is religion, but a system of beliefs with codified standards for enforcing the norms of their practical application? Not every religion is sacred. Political activism risks taking the shape of religion, as overzealous adherents establish formulas for regulating and enforcing ethics, based on dogmatic belief. As it currently stands, the Western Social Justice Movement contains the requisite ingredients for transformation from a revolutionary tool of resistance to an oppressive secular religion, in its own rite. This is unfortunate, as the aims of the movement are just: freedom, liberty, and equality; however, any method rooted in fundamentalism yields, not the former ideals, but tyranny and retribution.

Anti-Social Capital

Statistical measures–likes, follows, shares, views–can never fully articulate the actual value of an individual’s presence or performance online.

The exchange value is disproportionate to the actual value of the creation or creator.

The Autistic OS: Episode 1

I promised I would shift my creative energies towards Autistic Advocacy. With that said, please enjoy this, the first episode of my new YouTube series, The Autistic OS. This episode concerns autistic social communication, specifically, in the area of social reciprocity.

Going Forward

When I began this blog and when I entered the social media landscape as Cornflower Girl, I did not set out to be an Autistic Creator. I did set out to produce content to which others could relate, which would, hopefully, facilitate catharsis for wounded souls in need of balm, like my own. I began creating content for online consumption long before I ever realized I am Actually Autistic. It all began with a novel project, which I have referenced from time to time within these pages, and while I’ve shelved that particular endeavor (for who knows how long?) it did play a necessary role in my personal evolution.
