Autism Politico

Discussing the politics of autism.

Editorial #234: Quote #14

Autism Politico has another quote for you: “Water run by will not turn a mill.” A. Maclaren, D.D.

What does this mean for us?

It means we should do today what we have the chance to do today, and not let today pass into tomorrow. It means if you are twiddling your thumbs and not accomplishing anything, you are wasting your energy.

If you are in dire circumstances and aren’t doing anything to get yourself out of them, then it means you are partly to blame for your problems.

Another way to look at this is to examine what the advocates in the autism community are doing for you. They may exist. They may have websites. Their members may participate in chats and groups. But what are they actually doing for you? Perhaps you should be demanding more of these people who ask for YOUR support, or YOUR money, or for YOUR assistance. After all, aren’t these people here to serve you?
