To: Kingston Ontario

We need to talk and it is a bit of an uncomfortable conversation to be having. I have Autism characterized by behaviors of ADHD. I put my kidneys through a lot when I am jogging 20K because I am too impatient to wait for a bus. I need a place to go to the bathroom for these issues. I know we are trying to prevent disease but I just feel this current climate poses an unfair challenge on my physical health.

I appreciate anything that can be done to make this issue easier for me. Thank you for taking the time to read about my concerns.

Planning a Work to Prosperity Model

No worker shortage Belleville Ontario

Description of the video:

f you plan a #welfarestate but don’t plan a #Workers State. Then you only end up with a strong welfare state. That is what is happening to #belleville & #QuinteWest.

#Liberal style #Socialism should be the Social Democratic theory of Economic Expansion. How do we achieve meeting the needs? While also incorporating a model of working to prosperity.

The fridge & food metaphor: I am using this to explain how uncontrolled rent & rising costs to live are interdependent to a work to prosperity Economic model. If the work for the Prosperity model dies, then with it dies the culture of ambitious workers. You just have people concerned with owning the means of production. Nobody will want to support it. Think of it as highly volatile and overly idealistic capitalism.

Needs in Belleville and Quinte West

There is no worker shortage. Just an entirely lacking work to prosperity Economic model.

Capitalist Logic I won’t ethically use.

Like Ashton Deroy’s page on Facebook 

Hey guys, let’s start being practical, and let’s start being moral. I am Ashton Deroy I graduated from Loyalist College. I have a Business Diploma and a Diploma in Advertising and Marketing Communications. Here is some Capitalist Sales Logic I won’t conform to for ethical reasons.

  • You can replace a quality competitor product with an inferior product by way of Sales & Marketing – This is not Utilitarian, practical, or even generally reasonable. That is why I had trouble selling Shaw Cable products in Telemarketing. In areas, our competitors had genuinely better products and we were outdated. Everything from the telemarketing outward was outdated in Shaw Cable comparable to Telus in certain areas of Canada around 2016.
  • You should never take a handout – Every handout is reduced to Socialism in the brain of a Capitalist. As a Liberal Socialist, I argue that you use the best system for the situation to ensure the health & well being of people. It felt surreal listening to a guy who buys and sells apartment buildings talk about how he will fight the government and shame everyone who is poor. Rather than encourage resiliency and morality. Something that would make good content and no one would blame him for.
  • Always bidding for the cheaper solution – Never looking at issues deeper than a bottom line. I am not afraid to talk about in a job setting that if a call center seating layout is resulting in sexual harassment of an employee. Then I believe in 100% modifying the seating arrangement. That is just common sense. You know what? We had one plan for the layout today and now we have to modify that plan. To: Capitalists & Communists, “Absolute efficiency is an insane and indignant unachievable concept.” Communities have more than 1 bottom line.

 

If I give up the brain of addiction. I must give up Nihilism.

People might wonder in the autism community if I will get past my issues of addiction and depression. I know my pathway out. If I am to give up addiction I must give up Nihilism. When one is an addict? They tend to reduce their life and the sum total of morality into a meaningless construct. (It is important to note my path to sobriety was a political & cultural study. Not a religious experience. Hence why I chose Liberal Socialism as a defining religion eventually)

Political Studies

It is not. Morality is not meaningless. Our environment is not meaningless, especially in relation to potential mass extinction and the traditions of Social Democracy & Liberal Democracy are not meaningless. Even if we identify as atheists out of some traumatic experience we should still live our life with a purpose, passion, and some discipline.

When I was a Nihilist? I learned some of my attitudes had an impact on my family culture. If you are a Stoner who doesn’t care about anything. You might have a sibling become a stoner who doesn’t care about anything. That is an eye-opening experience. Your family might reflect your attitudes with constant socially negative commentary on race, ability & various World Views.

(I have mentioned despite my Dad being a typical Canadian in his views. We do share a prejudice to Communism both in literature and history considerations.) 

Looking morally inward with questions:

  • What impact do I have on moral culture?
  • What do people think my values are?
  • What are the traditions I want to honor and the ones I want to leave behind?

 

Why my websites don’t suck?!

Reading recommendation:

The subtle art of not giving a fuck title

Believe it or not, this book will have a key element in my website’s Branding strategy. I just do not give a F*ck!

 

Okay so my websites clearly use https://logomakr.com/ for graphics, but I never claimed to be a Graphic Designer.

Okay, so the Social Media content isn’t consistent. I never claimed that my theories found that essential.

What have I claimed to be? Community Manager, Customer service representative, A Salesperson, a Writer, a Socialist, Social Reformer, Liberal Socialist, a content writer & A Business Planner.

That is the first reason why my website doesn’t suck. Yeah I am not some amazing artist (I have done art I am proud of.) I am engaging and I do write provocatively.

The second reason my websites don’t suck! 

We get most of our traffic from our Belleville Ontario tag! Meaning I know I am inspiring and engaging with bright Community College minds like me, my Uncle & my brother. I think Community values are the biggest benefit of Socialism. We hold deep value for friendly, equal & civil societies.

The last reason my websites don’t suck!

I have been doing a try & fail applied experimental approach to my website. It takes a while to find your style but we are finally getting into our niche. Yes, we generate more conversations than we do revenue, however, I am building a community I am truly learning to care for. Hence the reason I got Suicide Prevention training. We had a reader express Suicidal thoughts and I felt unprepared. Now if a reader does that I am trained to transfer her to a professional who can stop their family from experiencing incredible grief.

So sue me! I have a relationship with my readers and I am not a creative lifestyle brand! My Websites don’t suck. Want to upset someone greatly? Make them feel like crap about something they worked really hard on. Just remember human beings are prone to the human responses of emotional volatility. Working at Fido in Customer service in 2019 taught me that much.

 

Need a website? Let’s interview and I can do a sales pitch.

3 ways to avoid a stagnant Social Democracy

Ashton Deroy writes: I have been talking about Cooperatives. A Business model I seriously admire and one that I believe can truly reduce poverty. It wouldn’t be completely honest though if I didn’t talk about the pitfalls for a Socially democratic collective. The truth is I have some negative experiences for the model of Social Democracy that I stand up for so much.

Social Democracy Instagram

Let’s go back to 2018 when I was removed from Seneca Pride. I won’t even be denied that I deserved it. Despite the fact, it was clear to many observers that the “Mean Girls” had taken over the Pride group. What did I learn from this experience though?

Well, I have 3 ways to get past deadlocks in Social Democracy:

  • Hold Procedural votes – We all liked the idea of hold Social democratic votes over Facebook in our Seneca Pride group. There may have been student government regulations that prevented this process. I was also in favor of raised hand voting from within the group. Just as long as we got the votes done. Which is the case of Seneca Pride… We did not. It is worth noting the real reason I took Politics at Seneca College as a General Education course was to better manage the Social Democracy happening from within this group. The key to procedural votes 1. Setting firm dates. 2. Setting a firm process.  3. Allowing members to abstain by choice or not showing up.
  • Allow authoritative decision making – Not everything can be decided by vote. Sometimes you have to trust an authority on the subject matter. Sometimes choices aren’t democratic. Sometimes decisions should be made by Utilitarian principles, expertise, or other moral principles. I often discouraged anti-police sentiment from within Seneca Pride. This was because I felt morally obligated to ensure the health & safety of Seneca Pride members. Many of whom were going to seek permanent residence within Canada. I believe it would be easier for them to integrate permanently as comrades if they were to buy into the Commonwealth phrase of “Peace, Order and Good Government.” . I was also adamant that OPP from within Toronto only be blamed for actions committed by them. Not action committed by American authorities. Despite the fact, Black Lives Matters had an agenda of promoting a borderless approach to civil rights issues from within our group. Despite our opposition, this would be a group I grew to admire for their grassroots civil rights movement.
  • Don’t be afraid of hurting feelings – Even in a democracy, we can not reach a Utopia of everyone being happy. I like to say Even Soviet Russia had Conservatives. Referring to farmers who protected Private Property in agriculture-related to the New Economic Plan of Lenin. Sometimes the practical decisions can leave people feeling a bit disenchanted.

“The time at our disposal is limited…. The material means of achieving ends are limited. We have been turned out of Paradise….” Lionel Robbins. I feel like that quote is the perfect note to end in when we talk about Social Democracy. Whether we like it or not we have to be practical in our approach to a more modern collective. Well and isn’t that just a bummer?

Remember to check out my Business Planning Service… Yes I would be happy to help you plan your Social Democracy in a Cooperative.

Take Social Ownership of the Loneliness crisis.

 

Ashton Deroy writes: This is my common sense philosophy. I think no matter what I write. This will be the most me thing I ever write as an Autistic Social Democrat. “Take Social Ownership of the Loneliness crisis.” It is an ambitious idea but I consider it a philosophy of my life.

Find the oddballs, misfits & some good role models too. Put them together & make them your social scene. The only problem with this group is they have real problems in our society. Lonely people have financial issues, mental health problems & even social struggles. The prior sentence is just a carefully viewed observation based on my surroundings. 

Chances are in having this theory to make your mosaic plurality of friends. You are going to experience someone with mental health problems which could include suicidal ideation. I have to say today as of 2020-04-14 I am going to take aLiving Works Suicide preventionE-Learning course through Ontario.

I am autistic as I stated. When I hear suicide coming from someone’s mouth? You may as well of put dishes in a dishwasher and started grinding them! Yes, it makes me uncomfortable and yes I panic! I don’t think if I am hearing about suicide as often as I do though, that I shouldn’t be ready for when I do hear someone mention it.

Despite humorous opinions of me. I do not seek out chaos! I like routine, smoking pot & listening to audiobooks. I don’t like things that make my eyes feel like large golfballs.
