Goal: I want to be one of the nice people.

Ashton Deroy writes: If they tell you that this is The Good Place. Even after everything goes wrong that can go wrong. You are in a bad place! However, if you are dumb & optimistic enough you will still think it is The Good Place long after you are proven it is hell. Truthfully Nice optimists are the most tyrannical people we all ever meet because there is nothing more tyrannical than forcing attitudes of civility.

My boyfriend maintains that nice people are the scariest people. What insane coercion must take place to put forward an image of kindness and solidarity? This is where we need to look beneath the surface to understand the perfection is built on a flimsy foundation.  The assumed cooperation of everyone else.

Honestly after moral speculation & colorful wording.  I realize I need to switch my focus from doing what I want to do. To do what it is my obligation to do. I want to get a job so I can start/continue to raise money for important causes such as:

Remove over emphasis on independence from feminism.

Ashton Deroy writes: “Feminism is about self-empowerment.” Says every capitalist Liberal/Libertarian feminist ever. It is wrong, it is an error in judgement that doesn’t fix the problem. Why isn’t feminism about teaching cooperative relationships both professionally and intimately? Why doesn’t feminism care more about the mental health crisis of loneliness? The answer is it does.

We just have to step away from the Capitalist mass produced feminism. The kind that allows Corporate brand Liberalism which you see in Belleville Ontario for corporations to be able to fire a woman for taking care of her father/family. The kind of feminism that serves a purpose only as a placeholder for regression and losing the rights women of the past fought so hard for. Feminism has to include democratic collectivism, unified theory and the ability to condemn Businesses & people who don’t follow the new order.

We can’t settle for Market feminism. It does not work! How can it be feminism if the women who want to participate can’t invite their boyfriends to join the revolutionary culture? It does not work. How can we allow for feminism without political purpose? It does not work. It defeats the idea entirely. We aren’t creating a system of equality. We are creating a Capitalist system that allows a woman to be oppressed the same as a man, which is not the point!

Feminism must be inclusive, egalitarian. It must fight for economic environmental justice. Anything else is not going to work. No one wants Hilary Clinton’s version of Liberal feminism anymore. We need something better! We need something that shakes the earth beneath us.

Building a Liberal Socialist. Popular articles on the website.

WIN_20200321_21_11_15_Pro

Intro: Socialists believe in equality, inclusion and collective responsibility. Liberals have values of justice based on freedom, equality, and fairness. In High School, I was a weirdo freshly converted into Environmental Liberalism from the guy with the scary slide show Al Gore. I went on to join the environmental club in high school & volunteered to handle E-waste causes. At the same time in East Northumberland Secondary School I was also involved with improving gay rights & fighting discrimination at the school.

Fighting: Okay a lot of people I think will be upset if I don’t mention fighting discrimination meant actually learning to fight. Yes at ENSS I was on the wrestling team. In college at Seneca, while working on my second Loyalist College diploma, I learned Kickboxing. Up until grade 8 living in Trenton Ontario is a bit of a rough life. So we learned to fight among a Social group. Then in High School I joined my Wrestling team & learned boxing in college. I still work to stay in fighting shape even though I no longer participate in martial arts actively. What I found out by training fighting? If you stay in fighting shape & keep a good moral character the chances are you will never have to fight. 

From there I went to Loyalist College got two diplomas in Advertising & Business. I went to College in Kingston Ontario for a Graduate Certificate program in Interactive marketing communications. Recently I just completed my CanSell certification so I can now legally sell cannabis in recreational stores.  Currently, I am living once again in Kingston Ontario. I am seeking employment and I am eager for the pandemic to be over so I can get to work & get to be out in the community.

Ashton Deroy writes: I wanted to introduce some of the popular links on the website and index them on this post. Hopefully introducing the articles to you will make a more favorable impression of me. My name is Ashton Deroy, I am 26, I have autism and write like a Liberal Socialist

. I do want to say while I am idealistic at times. I do think my websites have some good ideas and true feelings towards many aspects of the community.

Why I loved working at Hawkin’s Cheesies? – I am not sure if this article is trending ironically or if it is just because Hawkin’s has a low web presence and this indexed really well. Yes, I did love working at Hawkin’s Cheezies factory in Belleville Ontario. This is one of the fairest employers in all of Belleville. Still, this is a Social Democratic blog which means I talk about bad employers to. Which I say because I worked at Hawkin’s Cheesies after working at Hinduja Global solutions. This was a call center experience with a lot of downsides. The factory had a consistent schedule, clear expectations & they took employee health & safety seriously. The call center caused multiple stress-related health issues coupled with a demanding schedule where I would have trouble seeing a physician when needed. They also had clients who have had a lot of mainstream criticisms for bad taste business practices. 

3 reasons I love Green Grass Oasis- Another post my readers seem to enjoy. Green grass Oasis is a Dispensary we used to be a spot we loved visiting on the Reservation. Since then we have actually been going more often to Organic Green Dispensary, also Legacy 4/20 is of high quality. Which is actually something I changed my mind about recently.

Honestly, I am going to be embarrassed & I have been embarrassed by how I have run this website at times. On the other hand, this is a blog I have given a lot of my time and energy to. I have deleted full blogs so many times in the past, but I am at a stage now where I am going to keep all of my works up to the best of my ability. I am going to summarize below where my creative directions have been in the past with blogs.

Blog formats I have tried:

  1. Queer Brand Experience – A blog where I write negative reviews about things I have consumed.
  2. Journals -Insane Rambling.
  3. Environmental Photography blog – I was just really stoned and this seemed like a good & fun way to be an idiot.
  4. Bongs-R-Us – A Really stupid blog about weed.
  5. Toronto-Businessphere – I actually did some decent Business style writing here.

Move over Capitalism, Socialism is taking the higher ground. A Pandemic discussion from self-isolation.

 

Ashton Deroy Writes: It appears Covid19 is only intensifying talks of Socialism and what we do and don’t want for it. What are our new rules? What do they mean for us? How is Socialism taking the higher social grounds during this pandemic?

Socialism is a system of governance that happens either by necessity or by agitation. After all it is said that after World War 2 Socialism rebuilt the United Kingdom. While in another example in the case of Cuba the people got tired of Western democracy and capitalism. The people revolted and overthrew it!

Regardless Socialism is here right now. What are the the new rules & features? Well it seems like one feature society does not want to put down is Universal Basic income. It seems like that will have to find a place in whatever Social system is set up in place of our current system. There is just an overall agreement that Pandemic’s show a crucial time for the use of a Universal Basic Income. Especially in cases of turning people away from certain irresponsible employers still operating their infectious office places of work during this time. I am definitely talking about call centers.

What does Universal Basic Income mean for us? It means reconsidering what work we think is worth doing at this time. One might argue that to flatten the curve in relation to Covid19. We may want to consider buying out the participation of unskilled laborers in the economy so that we can ease the burden felt by healthcare later. I also believe after we could return to a labor economy that would be the ideal in the long run though.

We also need to look at improving the treatment of the elderly. This includes not unnecessarily avoiding elderly relatives who may be dependent on the help of others. Don’t get me wrong. This is an incredibly complex time where we have to consider whether a cold we have could possibly kill our grandparents. However according to people working in healthcare and finance a lot the elderly go abandoned in times of mass pandemic. Which in the long run is not going to help their overall well-being.

The Corona-virus is statistically devastating because it does have the potential to be the sickness to wipe out many of our older relatives. On the other hand sometimes you have to weigh infection versus how safe an elderly person can practically take care of themselves on their own. We need to come up with solutions so that the elderly don’t feel abandoned at this time. This may include the feature in looking at the cost of socialized home care for older people in the communities.

Why Socialism is on the higher moral ground? Socialism asks “What are our obligations to each other?” Where as Capitalism naturally asks, “what are our obligations to ourselves?” We have a responsibility to a collective at this point in time. If you have the chance put down your self interests and be strategic in your collectives.

Ashton Deroy: CannSell Certificate of Achievement & Business Diploma.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ashton Deroy Writes: I am not kidding when I say I hold these two achievements in the same regard. My Community College Business Diploma & my CannSell achievement certificate. I have legitimately wanted to work in the Marijuana Market ever since I first went to college in 2012. Now it is something that is actually achievable and I am very excited. 

 I think seeing these two things together just makes me realize I have been able to combine two very different sides of myself successfully. The professional deterministic side that got myself to learn finance, Supply Chains & Statistics. Then there is the Hippie who knows about the history of Cannabis, All about Socialism & bases their modern style blogging on the old works of Social Democrats of the past. Whether I am a hippie or a Business person, I am just proud of the fact I was able to put these two achievements side by side and see a broader image of myself. 

About the AGCO CannSell Course? 

AGCO

You can click the image of the website if you want to take it yourself. What you should know? The course is $70 & it takes 5 hours to complete. I kind of thought it was cool though. I have been studying marijuana for some time. I was still able to learn about Canada’s legal history with Marijuana & about recent cases of cannabis intoxication and driving. 

As a vanity thing. I actually think if you are a huge cannabis nerd like me. You should get a CannSell Certificate. I can’t see any reason why not? Like it is kind of a verification that I take my passion for recreational marijuana seriously. Plus if you have studied marijuana as much as me. You will probably pass the test easy as well. 

This is a section for my resume here on the blog. I just think if I am mentioning my achievements. I should probably post a resume to. This blog is supposed to help with generating career leads.

Are you kept inside during the Co-Vid19 pandemic?

Try some cardiovascular exercise. These workouts help me keep sane while in isolation. I actually have a small cough myself. However, sometimes I find a mini martial arts workout can be good for a body that spends too long in bed. Also moving once every few hours helps improves your circulation which is great for pain reduction.

The other thing I have tried recently is T’ai Chi 

This is a 5 part workout I purchased on Google Play. I use it to re-align my chi. I also find mixing martial arts workouts effective with T’ai chi because I learn to move my hands more fluidly. Also it improves your reflexes and stance.

Now T’ai Chi does not look like much. I should warn you, it hurts like crazy! Like as much as Pilates hurt. T’ai Chi hurt about the same. No pain no grain & I know there will be flexibility improvements over time.

My Step mom Tracy Carpenter

Tracy carpenter

Ashton Deroy Writes: I have been studying moral philosophy and I needed to do a shout out. Not a lot of people know this but I would consider Tracy Carpenter as the most moral person I know. She is a check & balance on bad habits. Great at encouraging better habits & she is an excellent adviser in Quality of actions. 

We have to take inventory of the positive people in our lives. Especially as Autistic people living in intense anxiety.  I just think with me studying Moral Philosophy on Coursera 

I need to take inventory of who I consider moral in my personal life. I have written about family occasionally where I have said some have behaved in immoral fashion. I would include me in the bunch of them. However Tracy always talks about addictions issues, times where people lack moral character & she has given her friends much needed advice.

The New School: Is Liberal Socialism Possible? | How To Be An Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century

 

Subscribe to the New School on YouTube 

A One-Day Conference in Memory of Erik Olin Wright. Erik Olin Wright spent the last years of his life thinking about ways to challenge and transform capitalist societies. He distilled his thinking in a book, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century (Verso, 2019). The symposium is designed to launch a debate about the strengths and weaknesses of Wright’s approach. We seek to both honor our colleague’s memory and assure that his ideas become part of current discussions of socialism and socialist strategy.

The event will consist of three panels during the day and an evening session that will include tributes to Wright and a keynote by his friend, Ira Katznelson. Full program: http://www.capitalismstudies.org/anti… This event is co-sponsored by the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies and the journal, Politics & Society.

THE NEW SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH | http://newschool.edu/nssr Thursday, September 26, 2019 Wolff Conference Room, 6 E 16th St 8:00pm-9:30pm

Stance on Universal Basic Income

Ashton Deroy Writes: Universal Basic income is basically an expansionary Economic policy that aims to provide people with a basic income that meets minimum living standards. (In my opinion the Social welfare program is preferable due to the employment created for Social Service workers, Career Counselors & administrators.)

I am going to keep this post short because I am not for or against Universal Basic Income. My Dad thinks it is a good idea but I am less sure. I will keep my opinion mostly to two points. 1. We have to greater incentivize working to prosperity. 2. We need a strong means to fund a program like this & the ability to hit the emergency breaks as soon as required. These programs have driven Communist Socialist countries to break.

 

CBC “Ontario’s basic income pilot project was widely expected to last three years in order to figure out if it could replace other social support systems. But it’s being axed early. The new provincial government deemed the program a failure, but many participants say it was a lifeline.”

Where I believe the program failed? Promising a 3-year commitment to these people before an election. The program was not encouraging the participants enough to step away from a government Social program into more stable full-time employment. Lastly, the program didn’t hire any Social Service Workers to monitor any type of mental or Economic progress. (Are you affected by this program being pulled? Get angry, get loud and get Anti-Conservative!)

You are not going to win my vote on this Universal Basic Income concept. Despite the fact, I acted politically to protect it by supporting Kathleen Wynne in re-election in 2018. I need to see broader Economic planning, a clear statement of values & demonstrated competence. 2022 is going to be the year of the next Provincial Election. I am leaning towards Ontario’s NDP Party because of the outstanding work of Andrea Horwath as the Official Opposition.

Proof of Jango Property Management and Jamie Macari’s homophobia.

Ashton Deroy writes: Posting from 544 Victoria st, Kingston Ontario. Jango Property Management issue.

In January 2020 I moved in to a house in Kingston Ontario where the Property Manager’s Super attendant had clear prejudices to LGBTQ2S people. He didn’t choose to go about his prejudices by banning LGBTQ2S Renters. However I am going to talk about his intent to discriminate as it played out in the context it played out. Then what you will see? Is that discrimination no matter the shape or form just basically sucks.

The above is a Tweet from Jamie Macari I am going to use to prove something my roommate had said to me. “He has admitted to me intention to discriminate gay & French people.” That was the exact quote from the roommate as it was said. How did this play out in the household?

Let us note at the first house meeting in January 2 LGBTQ2S Tenants pleaded with the Super Attendant to allow their romantic partners to visit the home. Let us also note that he refused with a rationalization that stated it as a resource problem. However the understanding I have now had is this. Jamie Macari believes that homosexuality or being LGBTQ is a negative choice. As outlined by the Tweet above.

For the sake that Jamie believes being LGBTQ2S is a choice. I believe he banned LGBTQ2S Tenants from having guests (along with others)  to force his ideals. The fact that he believes the lifestyle is a negative choice that one can use to distance themselves from god means that he was using the terms of the lease to force us to distance ourselves from our lifestyle which he believes to be an offense to god! This was a coy backhanded way to force his nonacceptance on us and I won’t accept it as anything else.

Jamie believes that Canada is forcing him to accept LGBTQ2S people and their diversity on him. He believes that in encouraging acceptance of us he is the victim along with his religion. Not the LGBTQ2S tenants he has driven in to isolation. How dare he?

The fact that I was damaged as an act of collateral damage does not subtract the fact that he was using this no overnights policy to enforce a homophobic belief. If others can’t read in to underlying dialogue they must be blind to circumstance. Playing jump rope with the boundaries of homophobia is why we struggle to have a full execution of our charter rights within Canada. This can not be allowed!

This can not stand as is. I have been pleading and I will continue to plead, do research and move forward. In an effort to expose the discrimination I have been put through. Jamie has a record of saying homophobic things based on his own free will. He has degraded the LGBTQ2S population based on his own free will. If we allow him to take in LGBTQ2S tenants and not permit their overnight romantic guests. Then we are allowing for him to participate a rental situation that permits systemic violence to LGBTQ2S persons within Kingston Ontario. A very diverse and loving community.
