    that there is  a way of looking at things which is very black and white. Right or wrong.  It is about control and making people fit into a vision of normal/ mainstream.  
    Do you recall John Dean's book about Conservative Authoritarians? Conservatives Without Concscience  I feel that ABA lends itself to that kind of thinking. It's not about each person's unique gifts and potential, it's about everyone fitting into a box.  The box of good worthy valuable acceptable people.  
    Autistic, gay, muslim, fat, mexican...you don't fit.  You will have to prove to us that you can fit in.

    Be the change you want to see in the world.
