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.

Why Non-voters ought to be celebrated as another form of political independence?

A modern commentary that is non-academic and non-bureaucratic is the tradition of the Non-Voter. Not everyone should have to burden the weight of democracy. Some people should get a pass. Whether it be to learn more, abstain from an argument, or pursuit a working grind or maybe self-declared mental limitations. We ought to view non-voting as admirable and a form of peacekeeping.

We should make efforts to collectivize with like-minded people. 

This being said, although that is a duty of democracy. Why don’t we give it time? When I was 18 I had a head of steam and I was ready to vote. I am still ready to vote when the time comes because I keep myself informed. As a writer, I practice the exercise of opinion. This could be an exhausting and boring duty to some. Also a Democratic population unhinged would have a battlefield of tribalism. A moderate democracy ought to be recognized and celebrated.

What is wrong with sitting out? 

(Utilitarianism suggests happiness ought to be considered in situations of scarcity. The U.S. had a capacity issue with taking votes in the Democratic primary. Site closures mean they can accept fewer votes per location. Economics wise it allows passionate voters to participate and apathetic people to sign out. If political movements aren’t speaking to you. Or even maybe you reject the concept of the state entirely. (Hopefully not the second one.) Maybe you feel unattached to the debated issues. Or even from your own intellect. Either way, we should allow a tradition of sitting out and peacekeeping. I think Political science in school is designed to demand democratic participation. However, we have to acknowledge feelings of alienation especially when consider the Socialist and Libertarian traditions of politics.

For the record I voted once from a non-voter family member’s residence in municipal politics. I think since he paid the bills he ought to get the credit for that vote. Even if it went no where. Objectively speaking Duncan Armstrong was a weak politician. My website definitely gets more traffic than his did. It is sad the Progressive municipal movement was soley up to him. Jim Harrisson is definitely a media savy mayor.  

I just also think we overemphasize voting and underemphasize donating as well. A Capitalist would theorize that donating would actually make democracy more accurate. Not that I am a capitalist. However, I think democracy is partially now about resource management.

“Oh, this is the bad place.” Describing my personal hell. Discussing addiction.

Here is a challenge. Describe your personal hell in 200 words. Write it as an incentive to improve your life. What does hell look like for you? Email Ashtonderoy@gmail.com 

What would my personal hell look like? What are the features? What will tempt me to stay? How will I force myself to leave?

Features: My personal hell is one I describe with unhinged intoxication, smoke and alcohol & drugs everywhere. A total cultural ghetto.  There is no intellectual discussion, no exercise, and no real attempts at bettering one’s self.

Temptations to stay: The temptations to stay are based on some of the family states of mind and rituals.  My family has bleak and nihilistic opinions that I believe will re-buried me in addiction down the line. Imagine how hard it is to depart from your family culture and not only that but to demand a better and more progressive family culture!

How I will find my way out to a better life? For me, I had to find traditions and identity that appealed to me. For me when this is done? I will live in the tradition and culture of the intellectuals of left & socialist leanings.

I repeat, “please don’t compare my world views to your trip on LSD! Just do me that favor.”

I value highly the pursuit of an equal society with values of justice and dignity with cultural plurality I have read books by Democrats, Socialists, Utilitarians. I have learned about the origins of North American Social Reform culture out of New Harmony Indiana. I have praised Tommy Douglas for his work on human rights and the creation of Socialized healthcare. There is a real cultural collective of literature, historical figures, and Philosophical/Economic readings.

When you do what this person did? 

Reducing the sum of morality & a values-based conversation with real intellectual values in to “When I took acid I realized what I already knew, we’re all just creatures of earthborn under the sky and will die under the sky.”I lost a great deal of respect for this person. Of all the profound conversations I would hope to have with a fellow intellectual and fellow working-class person.  This was not in line with those types of conversations I would hope to be having. Doy I am an atheist too! I just still believe in deterministic  principles for guiding one’s actions.

Telling it like it is 

You can be an atheist and then still be a nihilist and know that I will call that out as a bad thing. Atheism is not the sum total value of our individual philosophies. If you don’t have the meaning you find it through reading and deep introspection. As a friend, you became someone I view as someone who gets lost in sloppy poorly thought out meaningless relationships with men who have drug issues.

As a person, you have become paranoid (obviously these drugs don’t agree with you and are probably illegal. I am not a police officer) As a student you’ve been reduced to nothing but a pointless party person who won’t buckle down & focus. Acid & LSD was considered a threat to cultural sanity for a reason. People during use feel like they have been enlightened. People from every faith and atheism thing they get it all figured out just from an intense trip! You haven’t woke my friends.

Acid Reader

LSD influences serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in every part of your body, from your mood and emotions to your motor skills and body temperature. According to a 2016 study, LSD also causes changes in the brain’s blood flow and electrical activity.” Google 

( This just in you are playing dangerous games with your mental health by taking acid and not consulting a physician about medicinal options or even negative health effects.)

Why I think her ex left her after 4 years based on an outsider observation? I think he lost respect for her. First of all, she is an atheist like me but let us face facts that on its own is a bleak philosophy. She was materialistic. From the prior conversations, she stated she didn’t believe his passion for world history would translate into a wealth payable skill. She was passionless and filled with deeply flawed values that go beyond practical and into bleak. The tide of her impulses just steer her to prospects of marrying for wealth, pushing desperately non-consensual commitment & her unaddressed preference for interdependence in her social culture means she is miserable by the way she steers herself. (Quite frankly I am comfortable labeling someone a gold digger in the face of the belligerent indifference to pursuits of passion in relation to education.)

Friendship Summary: This relationship was exhausting and I honestly fear her inability to grow will surpass my ability to forgive our culture clash. As a gay man & Socialist, I value being a confidant to many friends who feel like my sisters. As an autistic person who became higher functioning, I scoff at her lacking determinism to become smarter, her lacking passion for her work & inability to see why she might be offputting to men who crave emotional connections. She is one of the least self-actualized people I have ever met. She is reducing herself to a party girl wearing an “intellectual” mask. She is heartless wearing a mask of compassion & lastly she is passionless posing as a passionate person the result is total and completely fraudulent behavior, even if not a case of legal misrepresentation. You felt ripped off as a friend hoping for a deeper interpersonal relationship.

3 Reasons Canada’s political system won’t maintain peace forever.

Left wings vs right wings

Ashton Deroy Writes: It is in my opinion that Canada’s democracy will not keep the peace forever. All civilizations eventually break down & all systems of government eventually fail. To quote Sean Illing “The elites have failed. These so-called liberal democratic institutions have failed. My vote has no influence on public policy. Why should I give a damn about preserving this system?” 

My Dad and his partner are non-voters. It is not hard to see why? I think at this time it has to be one of the most peaceful stances to take. Democracy is already like a verbal war that is to take place every time there is an election. The after math is protests, complaining & social smear tactics designed to scare swing voters to the other side. 

Why do I think the system is going to have a violent breakdown? No system breaks without stress & our system has a lot of it. From the fact that climate change is said to be happening much faster in Canada, to the ethical integrity being questioned by our current prime minister & lastly the down turn of public political discussion

Climate change is now becoming the issue that needs addressing in Canada. The Conservative response was recorded however & all they had to say was “Carbon Tax = Evil.” Liberals have begun to try & create change with taxation. I actually wrote MP Neil Ellis in the prior blog  . In regards to protecting our natural environment and this was his response.

Neil Ellis

What incites violence about this issue though? Well if you are a member of Generation X or a Millennial you might just feel that the older generations of Conservatives really screwed up your planet. Knowing that this will cost you your quality of life, air & drinking water. You might just be pissed off enough to punch a Conservative in the face! 

That is okay though because as much as young people & lefties might want to punch a Conservative. I am pretty sure the current right wing population is a mix of capitalists, white nationalists & powerful people who want to punch Liberals to. In the MSN article above it says “Canada’s top public servant says he is worried someone will be assassinated during the coming federal election campaign given the disturbing tenor of recent public discussion.” It is true, Trudeau is being described as a traitor and has long been described as a figure radical conservatives have wanted to kill. 

Now that I have described in detail the hatred that exists between two major political ideologies lets discuss social smear. Today a discussion in Politics between a left winger & right winger is really more like a chance to spew propaganda to recruit support. We know if we win over the swing voters, we have a better chance at getting a government that best represents our class of society. We are fighting in discussions & the objective of the fight is to gain temporary support of our peers. In some countries coercion is a classic way of winning the fight. 

“A number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” James Madison 

It just doesn’t seem like this democracy can keep the peace forever. A check mark in a box does nothing to keep society standing. In my political studies class I learned Jean Jacques rousseau called the process of voting consenting to the social contract of an election. I’d argue more that people are consenting to being apart of a certain tribe & where there are separate tribes there is war! This system can not & will not last forever because it really does nothing to promote co-existence, take care of people & promote a sustainable living model. Voting is a division, political parties are tribes & democracy is a war awaiting violence.

My idea to clean up Quinte West water & natural environments.

Waste in Quinte West water.png

Taxing large plastic contributors to pay for waste removal from our water & parks.

In August of 2018, I began posting on my Instagram and personal blog about an issue Quinte West had in regards to waste getting in to our natural water by Centennial Park. It has since been one year since I have tried bringing this to to the attention of the public & Mayor Harrison. Now we are writing this letter to an MP to create some kind of community responsibility in regards to the destruction of our waters. It is my belief that we need to either work towards banning plastics & fast food containers that are not biodegradable. What I want to achieve? I want to get our town to fund waste removal from the natural waters & surrounding areas.

Consumers of convenience store foods & fast food are some of the least Eco-friendly consumers on the planet. Every year massive amounts of containers, packaging and bottles are found destroying our natural habitats & water. In Quinte West I have photographed evidence of damage to our environment near centennial park, & in our Bay with the culprits being common convenience goods. I have also provided picture evidence to show that Quinte West’s volunteer waste removal efforts are not even close to enough aide. Which proves require a government collaborated executions to pay for waste removal efforts.

It is widely understood online that our town hosts some of the most wasteful industrial companies in plastics doing business in Quinte West. such as Nestle, other commonly high waste contributors such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co & Metro Inc all sell goods within in Quinte West. I believe even if it requires creating a government paid execution for waste removals in public and natural attraction areas in Quinte West to try to reduce damage on our ecosystem. This is where we create  job removing unnatural waste from environments where it can impact fish & mammals.

Reference: https://www.conservationcouncil.ca/en/most-plastic-waste-in-canada-leads-back-to-these-5-companies/

I want to conclude saying we need to do something to impact our damage to our ecosystem. I think the answer is to create jobs removing waste from areas where it can impact the natural environment. I am sure we can contribute to paying for these jobs by creating a tax on the output of plastics from these companies. If we do this next year we can save our environment for the future.

Contact our MP at: neil.ellis@parl.gc.ca . Ask him to take action to maintain Quinte West waters.
