The Autistic Resistance
The purpose of this website is to spread love, science, and all other things good. My favorite event in secular history is the Christmas Truce at No-Man’s-Land in 1914. Which is why the cover photo is a frame from my favorite song’s music video, Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”. It was used because, ostensibly, being a happy ending to Romeo & Juliet, it is the conquest of hatred by love. It is making-out in no-man’s-land to defy the darkness and hatred of the human condition with light and grace to symbolically and literally end a war and do it without the very lie which tries to romanticize the ugliness of the ritual of war: martyrdom. Taylor Swift is more famous than anything in World War One so, hopefully, it is a more relatable image that sends the same message.
