We have a set of the McGuffy Readers here too!

I have no personal experience on that one, but I am wondering what it would look like if there had never been an autism/vaxx connection. If the sacred cow of medicine had never been brought up as a possibility for the increase, would we treat these families differently? Would they be more important to us? Or would we continue to scream "better diagnosing"?

That's a really good question.

I suspect that they would be treated similar to families of people with "mental disorders." They would be encouraged--or maybe required--to incarcerate and/or medicate their family members, with repeated pats on the head and comments like, "there's no shame in asking for help."

I'm wondering how many doctors who blamed vaccines for their child's autism were accused of things like Munchausen's-by-proxy?
