I am competitive but I am not as alienated as I seem. As of recently, I have outed myself to the extent of being a Socialist, a Progressive, at times a Liberal and yet I admit to having some unshakeable Progressive Conservative values. I am not basing my culture off of nothing. If you need to know where a lot of my values stemmed from as an anti-fascist… Well, here you go! ūüėĬ† Click here¬†for a wiki link

Not included in the theory… Non-voting culture … I think we should celebrate those who sit out from Democracy as peacekeepers. They let the idealists and the contentious battle it out & only vote when absolutely morally necessary. I think this is admirable to encourage peace, order and good governance.¬†

Well, I hope that clears up my thinking!

Announcement: I am so happy we have 30 regular readers averaging. I write for my own Democratic Socialist paper route in a way. ūüôā Thank you, guys.

Planning to write more of:

  • My Democratic experiment on Animal Crossing and what I based it on. Also, what was the purpose?
  • Corporate Communism (the consolidation of Business interests and political interests) and what Al Gore’s Book The Future can tell us about fighting it.

Utilitarian morality on Diet change

Diet change

Like Ashton Deroy On Facebook 

I am in a circumstance where I am enjoying eating fish and chicken right now too much to give it up. That may change in the future but for now, I have chosen to make the moral decision to eat meat so that I can spend less time on meal prep & eating. I believe one of the best ways I can be Utilitarian is to be working and live an active life. I may change dietary choices again if I buy Whey protein. It is all about convenience versus harm analysis. I will always consider diet a question of both Economics as well as the duty to myself. 

Fitness:

Get active like me? I use Beachbody on Demand & Simply Yoga. These are great lifestyle decisions. I have decided I will use exercise as a personal care regiment. My goals are mainly to reduce pain, increase joy & feel better about my coordination and physical shape. Again I do have autism & ADHD. So I find a key part of keeping myself physically functional is practice this very necessity self-care. I also help people workout. Mostly 10-minute abs. Or 20 minute Yoga. That is about what I am confident in demonstrating.  I have also shared Core yoga.

Moral Honesty: (Beachbody on demand is a Multi-Level Marketing Culture.) I call things as I see them. However, as I call things as I see them. Their guided workouts get results. Talk to a doctor before attempting a new workout routine. However, I feel great. I used Beachbody to get get in shape while working at a gym. I am not above accepting morality and consumption can get a bit dicey. I think it is something we should talk about. However, implementing the lifestyle of vigorous exercise & writing has brought me so much joy.

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.

Why I became a Socialist through Business classes?

Like Ashton Deroy on Facebook. 

I wish to stumble into my beliefs of Liberal Socialism was a phase. That way it could be just a mindset I could quit. I could leave it and the planet would be fine, median incomes wouldn’t be down and the neighboring Head of State wouldn’t be a dictator. Could you imagine such a world? ūüėÄ “That is the most Utopic thinking you will get from me today.” :/¬†

This may be surprising to people. I actually don’t think Business & Finance people are the fascist capitalists’ people think. You have a hard time learning about an unsustainable investment, financial, and environmental economy. Then pretending everything is alright with some Grant Cardone style motivational Capitalism. Not a hater, I bought a book of his. I just love using him in my jokes because the guy is so damn cheesy. “I vote my business.” Grant Cardone. Got to love self-help idiots. When we want answers? They give us silly.

The problem is I don’t want to throw out the system of Capitalism. Not at all. I want to throw out the uncompromising stupidity related to the political and philosophical ideologies related to capitalism. That is what is ruining the execution of the system in the proper manner. We have character problems and problems in how we view the environment. We don’t have a Private Property problem. We don’t need to screw up agriculture. We need to fix it. Listen I wouldn’t let a Communist screw up my access to food & water. I won’t let an oil-loving Capitalist do it either!

Anyways I am not a Capitalist. I am a Liberal Socialist. I don’t have time for grandiose Business bull****. As for strong centralized authoritarian governments like in Communism? I don’t think so Kingston Ontario! I don’t want to go through this rampant disease (Coronavirus) again because some idiot doesn’t know to use Bats in their stupid traditional medicine market. Or something environmentally stupid along those lines! Again I don’t care if you are a Capitalist or a Communist. Neglecting our environment is insane! Mixing the Social Concerns of Socialism with the innovative Capitalist values of Liberalism makes sense. It is a compromise that works.

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

Like Ashton Deroy’s page on Facebook¬†

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?

 

If we don’t change this I will die…

Workers promo

Ashton Deroy writes: If you think you can love me while voting Progressive Conservative you are wrong. For a long time me & my brother have viewed this as a personal attack on us and I think it is time I become transparent. I don’t care if you hate Trudeau and think this is the best way out! If we don’t change the treatment of workers in our own country I will die.¬†

Why will I die? I am entirely income dependent. If I go without a job I am going to sink faster than I will ever swim. If I take a job that doesn’t allow me to take care of myself properly I could have a heart attack! Do I have your attention yet?¬†

As I have said prior. It is too late to join the army for me. I have been in the wrong shape for it, for years! I have too much debt to suddenly do a trade & I tried starting a business and a lack of understanding for my product (website administration and setup) was a huge barrier. 

So this is it! I need to work, I need job security and I need schedule stability. Or I will die. Now is a time more than ever where you need to vote for parties that support the progression of workers’ rights. Now is the time where we must alienate the destructive ideals of the Conservative party and their needless attacks on Canadian workers. Conservatives took away from us and you have to pay for that!¬†

As a comparative look at the parties. Here is my comparative analysis of parties that will help with my quality of living. This is important if you believe you are 100% supportive of me, you have to consider your vote. Please take a look at these parties to determine the best spot to support me and people like me. 

Political Quality of Life Comparisons Vote ABC. Anything But Conservative!

We also need to focus more on living wage. It is not going to be a $14 an hour job to do the trick. After I finish school in order to get ahead I now need to earn a minimum of $20 an hour to be able to be comfortable and pay my debts. The other option is I die. I can’t defer OSAP payments and I can’t go without food.¬†

This is exhausting, 10 years of the Conservatives federally. Now a Provincial government that attacks the lowest class of people is killing me! I do not want to double down on Doug Ford, I do not want to face peril in a government that does not create solutions. They only create tax breaks. When the country is facing crisis? The retraction plan of the Conservatives have never made sense. Their expansionary plans are actually somehow worse. Especially in how they focus on useless things such as tourism, gambling & outside investments. We don’t need a government that is absent at the wheel. We need a government with control. Let me remind you to conclude that Conservative right wing ideologies are destroying the effective governance of U.K. & the USA. Time to put the Conservative playbook to bed people!¬†

The future is green, not automated. Looking at ineffective automation in Belleville Transit

The future is green

Ashton Deroy writes: Please read until the end of the post. I wanted to let people know some updates on my blog.

belleville-ontario-monthly-pass-vendor.jpg

If you live in Belleville Ontario. You might not be too impressed with the effort to automate the monthly pass sales for Belleville Transit. In fact, the whole process has been quite underwhelming. You might even say it has been a complete failure that has impacted rider experience.

It is true, in Belleville Ontario the monthly pass sales used to be handled by a Belleville transit worker at the bus terminal. As of late though we had automated it to this machine. Until the machine stopped working and no maintenance was completed to fix this ongoing problem. This is a part of a bigger problem that it is time to confess to.

Worker automation sucks! 

If you are in the tech industry or Business studies right now you have heard bull sh** stories about how everyone with easy job risks being automated out. By robots, vending machines & websites. Well, your demise has been quite overstated. The future is green, not automated!

How can I say this for certain? Besides the fact that the USA is a global market leader and all of their major Democratic candidates are singing the praises of a Green New Deal. We have to just look around and see the future has to be green, not automated. The earth is cooking people, plastic is everywhere in our eco-system. People are questioning the leadership of highly automated companies to be a powerhouse in change at this time.

https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2018/1/19/16908402/global-warming-2-degrees-climate-change

The earth is cooking: Above are the challenges of climate change in relation to temperature. A lot of the challenges have to do with sustaining our production of wheat, access freshwater & the disappearing coral reefs. Automation and use of wasteful technologies do not help. For example, we had machines to automate packaging Cheesie products at Hawkins Cheesies when I worked there in 2019. However these machines had a high error margin which resulted in higher outputs of plastic waste, there is something about setting a machine up to create 24-gram product bags where the machine throws out several large barrels of plastic a day.

Plastic is everywhere & Machines have no conscious¬†: I touched on this above, but Quinte West & Belleville manufacturing has a long way to go before they are thinking with a green-conscious. Automation is helping nothing! A machine has no conscious. It is an input of numbers and demands executed with the machines bast capable precision. The machine doesn’t ask us, “Are we creating too much waste?” It just does what it is told. So machines don’t know in factories that our outputs of waste are too large and they are destroying our eco-system. This is something people have to make us aware of.

People are questioning the leadership of highly automated companies: Take for example Fido. The only company I know that gives their customer service with a “f*** you!” They have tried to shift many of their processes to automated practices. Such as payment robots, website commerce & online bill reviews. All it has really done is ticked off plenty of their customers. To the point where many of their customers consider them a bad company. As much as I am for having customer stop receiving a paper bill, there is a lack of thought this company possesses in thinking about something like Cellular phone sales. A process such as cellphone sales really should be executed by a person to avoid confusion, system mistakes & teach the use of phones. Online this process is confusing, customers don’t get to ask questions and many of the mistakes the Fido.ca website makes are mistakes agents need 3 times as much time to sort out. Furthermore, a machine can not really confirm a person to person consensus which is required in 2-year term business transactions.¬† Automation is crap, it is costing companies money based on low-quality results.

Listen automation just sucks. I used to say, what do you expect all the workers to do when they stop working? Now I say, “Who the heck is going to fix the machine the was supposed to replace a person?” The answer is, “I don’t know.” However, if the machine was an employee at the Belleville Bus terminal, Fido & Hawkins Cheesies. I think we would have fired them a long time ago.
