Sorry but I take umbrage (not personal) with the usage of Aspergers for individuals who aren't actually afflicted with the actual disease. There's no such thing as a part time Aspergers patient that being someone whose allegedly socially awkward at home and yet miraculously and perfectly normal at school and elsewhere.
They acquire Facebook friends instead of real friends.
I think this is truly a misunderstanding of the obvious social evolution of this next generation(s). You seemingly forget that in past generations, many people have and possibly still hold different level of friendships throughout their lives. Many young people make and lose friends at the drop of a hat. Sometimes its dramatic and other times its not. In many cases Facebook friends are those same shallow "oh you ride the same bus as I do" friendships that come and expire fleetingly in the past generations when the friendship is no longer deemed necessary or too much work to uphold.
No. I don't think we're becoming a nation of "[a]spies." I believe that this generation is adapting to the cheap and easily accessible high tech revolution. That even if the child doesn't have access to a Facebook page or a cell phone, that he or she is still aware and ready/capable to adapt to his/her generation's social preference du jour
. Whether this trend is a good or bad thing overall for this generation, its far too soon to tell.
If many people with ACTUAL Asperger's disease can adapt and thrive in mainstream society: get an education, hold a job, get married and have kids, etc... then I believe these so part-time "[a]spies" who already are socially advantaged during the school day and during these "'enrichment' activities" will do fine.
