    The premise seems flawed, at least according to pop science. Lack of empathy is believed to be rewarded in high-powered positions. Though he's right that autistic people probably have less empathy (or at least appear to have less empathy or less of the more normative form of empathy), hence them being more socially awkward.

    I wouldn't say I'm a genius lol but I do suspect I have a higher than average IQ. Which to be fair is a common belief these days but anecdotally I scored the highest in my school on a literacy test in elementary school and was tested for the gifted program.

    Also, his argument that being good at math is an indicator of intelligence rather than linguistics is culturally biased. While, yes math can do away with linguistic and dominant cultural biases, he's underestimating the system of language. Those who are skilled at language and its systems are good rhetoric and are persuasive. It's an extremely underrated practical skill.

    Edit: The man is a neonazi. I was very skeptical when I heard mention of ethnocentrism and ethnostate more than once in the video.

    White people always talking bout IQ completely ignoring economic, structural, environmental factors that determine how you process information.

    The man literally is used by the alt-right and he made several sus comments about how people who are higher IQ potentially explore "taboo" subcultures. He also simultaneously elided over how openness is generally associated with liberalness which is why it's generally believed people who are liberal have higher IQs, generally speaking. You don't necessarily have to believe that former point but to skip past it entirely and defend people who believe in ethnostates is highly suspect.

    Seems like a lot of dog whistles to me.

    As @hargydon pointed out. He's extremely culturally biased, even if he didn't have an agenda. He's also falling into the logical fallacy of false equivalency by equating autism with high IQ. While true that some high IQ people may be "on the spectrum," autism and being gifted in intelligence are not the same thing.

    No it's not... is just a cringey loser saying something you hope is true... like styxhexenhammer66642069.

    You are not logical... you are the opposite. You have no ideas or real philosophy

    If you were born East Asian in North Korea you wouldn't have a higher IQ... you would be arguing against logical people your strong belief that the Chairman doesn't have a butthole and will live for 10,000 years... because you are a member of the Masses who has no ideas to help society... but yearn for a Strongman to idolize in a hope that he favors you over your perceived enemies.

    You don't have empathy because you have autism... you were born mentally weak and when you encounter some light childhood bullying it broke you... now you're just miserable lost cog and bad person.
