Antisocial people often socialize well in a pathological way. They have no empathy for the pain of others and sometimes inflict pain on others to alleviate their own emotional pain. (Autistics) aren't antisocial, they are asocial.
Autists, unlike psychopaths, do adhere to rules, distinguish between merely convential and moral rules, experience feelings of guilt and have a strong sense of justice... they seem to be moral agents in a kantian sense of the term...
