Autism Politico

Discussing the politics of autism.

Editorial #185: Quote #9

Autism Politico has another quote to discuss.  As always, the thing to do with these quotes is try to apply them to our own lives or to the autism community.

“Denying a fault doubles it. He that confesses his fault shall be preserved from hurt.” -Ecclesiasticus

Leaders in the autism world could learn a lot from this one. So many of them make so many mistakes, but rather than admit them publicly, they try and hide these mistakes. But those that follow these leaders see the mistakes and know what they are, and they lose faith in those who are leading them as time goes on.

 Now is the time to admit first to yourself and then to others, what your faults are, especially if a you are a leader, and you have faulted those you lead.
