Why Conservatism is now an immoral choice?

Ashton Deroy writes: Minimalists, Militarists & overly traditional. There was a time where if I said that you would think I was referring to the Economic organization of the Communists of Russia. Now it is something being associated with the Conservative allegiances of Canada. I actually took a Moralities course through Coursera to try and shed my desire for Political division. Unfortunately it has only strengthened my Political Prejudice.

First off all let us look at Minimalism. Minimalism was part of the failures of Socialism established by Communist Society. Making the farmers’ crops owned by the state & redistributed Socially was a good idea. Until the crops became scarce! Well the fruits of Capitalism are now in scarcity & the argument for a boring Conservative minimalist candidate is inherently contradictory to propping capitalism. Besides that, it makes Conservatism into something it was never supposed to be. Conservatism was only meant to make society enjoy the benefits of Austerity for wealthy individuals. If you do not benefit from wealth related to austerity then Conservatism no longer makes sense to you. You only hurt everyone else with an expectation of financial minimalism and the thought process you can always do more with less which was a moral criticism exclusive to Socialism initially.

Militarists, Andrew Scheer was ready to endorse insane and scary Military expansions.  My Conservative relatives can’t even make sense of a gym membership unless you intend to use it to join the army. This culture is scary, it lacks choice & it is frankly demeaning that if you are a lower income male you are automatically expected to enlist. My family is always ready to discuss the virtues of a military career. Due to the fact they quite often are babies with limited imaginations and problem solving abilities. The Capitalist Market is to only be about choices. If you are recommending every poor male join the army… Something isn’t working right. You are being immoral and supporting a vast military with no limits to growth & financial size.

The final problem is the over emphasis on Traditionalism. We still have a system plagued by over emphasis on the way things have always been done. Meanwhile the way things have always been done have long stopped working for Canadians. We need to expand the roles and rights of women in the workplace. We need to make our Economy more inclusive and less of an imaginary meritocracy. We need to not debate whether it is acceptable to vote in to power openly homophobic or just corrupt politicians influenced by a god complex and Evangelical definition of moral purity.  One of the most important things I think you can take from History & Morality is that right wingers tend to believe they can commit numerous injustices to the people. Yet they will always believe them to be moral actions. Despite never clearly defining morality or ever using a lead by example method. Also that genocide & racist laws are the example of where Traditional laws fall short by cliche.  For example Germany referred back to their old imperialist values when creating the Nazi government order.

Yes I am sorry but if you stand in the way progressive re-organization of a broken system. I have to hold you morally responsible under the guides of Liberal Socialist democracy. We need to say Traditional Bigotry is unacceptable. We need to re-ignite the flames of the early Anti-War Movements of the 1960’s and we need to draw back on our old values which valued a capitalism as an alternative to scarcity not a model to promote it. If I should ever find myself sitting among bottom tier of society. I might summon the courage to call myself a Socialist.

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.

Disappointment in Sara Reindel. 544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario.

544 Victoria St, Kingston Ontario, K7L 4A2
Ashton Deroy writes:
Hello Sara Reindel / Jango Property Management, This is to you. However I have included witnesses Including Jamie Macari, my brother Kyle Deroy & my father Randy Deroy. 
I just want to express my feelings about this house which are completely valid & within reason to express as a matter of poor customer service & negligence! Let us start out as a matter of trust. I am not even sure you are real! I have never met you, we have never talked on the phone & everything you do is in Jamie’s best interests! Not the interest of your company, the tenants  or even your income. Not to mention the fact you don’t even give consideration to your legal obligations.
Secondly, I have had the pleasure of seeing some of your emails with ***** (Censored for individual protection)!. What is wrong with you? If you are Sara Reindel then I have reasonable belief to understand you are a woman. How dare you let a woman be mistreated so badly in a home you manage?! I am disgusted! I am appalled! There is no excuse for this! Violence even in the realm of harassment against women is a serious matter that you as a woman should have taken seriously. You should of stepped in personally to deal with it and make sure she was okay. 
Lastly I want you to think carefully about what you say next to me. I am prepared to stand by what I said and did 100%. Are you able to? People are reading everything in regards to this, including the harassment sheet Jamie wrote to me whining about my effects on his health. It was a classic attempt at table turning and I am too smart for this kind of game. There is 1 victim in this house! 1 VICTIM AND IT IS NEITHER OF THE MEN WHO USED TRAIN IN WRESTLING! (Meaning Jamie & I) 1 VICTIM IN THIS HOME AND WE CALL HER ***** (Censored for individual protection)
Do me a favor and commit yourself long and hard to some serious thought & reflection before you reply. I am deeply analytical, highly intelligent & very strategic. I am also reasonably upset about things have gone down. The last thing is consider everything on the record including in person conversations. You have no reason to think you can have any off record chats with me whatsoever. 
Signed

544 Victoria street. Kingston Ontario. Jango Property Management unlawfully evicts disabled female tenant

Eviction notice

Ashton Deroy writes: Before this post is done I am going to address all the claims being made in this eviction notice. Then I am going to make a counter-argument and describe the heartbreaking personal situation of the female tenant being abused in this scenario. This is going to be heavily presented in the legal and conversational defense of the tenant being abused. Then it is up to public participation to handle this situation moving forward. This post is made as a witness to abuses from a Super Attendant to a tenant.

Matricestar Management, 544 Victoria St. Kingston Ontario

  • Repeated harassment of another tenant intimidating language and false allegations – Jamie Macari has administered the house to directly benefit his participation within it. He does not grant tenants overnight visitation whatsoever, he has bossed both me & her around for matters within the house. He installed checks & balances for communal living that made this female tenant confided in me which made her uncomfortable. To put this in perspective we have an email record where they talk about organizing a house dinner & they threaten rental fines within the same letter.
    • Counter Claim – The home did not have locks installed on Tenant dwelling units despite the Municipal laws of Kingston Ontario. Therefore it is clear that the one with the power to do the harassment and intimidation in this situation is clearly Jango Property Management & Jamie Macari. The second issue related to this is Jamie was running an Air BnB in spite of the fact he had no locks to protect personal tenant properties. Items went missing from this female tenant’s room when someone entered without permission.
  • Making it hard for the Super Attendant to service the home – He claims this is due to false allegations.
    • Counter Claim – Jamie Macari confronted this tenant who was uncomfortable around him. Jamie Macari has control issues demonstrated by the fact he doesn’t follow proper and professional protocols to contact tenants. Yet he calls these claims false allegations.   To: Jamie Macari I encourage you to recognize the plain scapegoating you are attempting in this situation. It is fair to say while I am ready to admit and apologize for wrongdoing and harsh language. You have taken only steps under immense pressure to do neccessary improvements in the home. Furthermore, as a tenant I am leaving the house because of your personal behaviors toward me, not the female tenant’s actions as described. This is a classic Analogy at most of the pot calling the kettle black not a situation where you have been victimized. However, since you do not lack leverage in this scenario it is clear that you are not the victim of this situation. Herein basic legal terms is the Inequality of bargaining power. You also represent yourself as a tenant in issues of maintenance and as an Air BnB owner in situations of temporary stay services. I also believe that the home once audited will turn up in Jamie Macari’s name  & not a holding company as accustom to property managers. Meaning this is a clear problem of individual landlord versus individual tenant with rental contracts executed in bad faith.
  • Access to rooms – There may be an incident where she accessed a room that wasn’t her’s.
    • Counterclaim – For the purposes of this I extend that she had permission to access my room by the entrance. My understanding is that any other room she has been in since being here she has always had permission to enter.

Proposed solutions: Damages have been imposed on tenants due to the rental agreements executed in bad faith. 1. We need to audit the property to see who holds the mortgage to sort the nature of this claim 2. The Super Attendant and/or Property management company have to answer for possible claims of negligence. 3. Damages & or amounts paid in security deposits need to be repaid to tenants. 4. Since no attempts were made to accommodate this female tenant’s existing disability due to her prior circumstances this needs to be handled as a classic scenario of a Property Manager/owner failing to accommodate someone’s disability.

Transgender Fitness: Training Female to Male customers.

Bringing Compassion & cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care

Ashton Deroy Writes: Sedentary Female to Male Transgender persons ought to be a public health issue when going through Hormone Replacement therapy. Andro, DHEA, stanozolol, testosterone is an anabolic steroid. Beta-2 agonists can act as bronchodilators and increase heart rates, in addition to their mild androgenic effects.To mitigate the effects of this drug in Transgender Female to Male patients we need to enforce the fact that users of this drug need to get adequate weekly exercise to manage the effects on your body, to get desired results & to cope with aggression.

Exercise is healthcare

I love Transgender men from my family to my friends. However, the facts are the facts. A Transgender man on hormone replacement therapy needs to get adequate exercise. Cisgender people need 150 minutes of exercise a week. However, for Transgender men, I may encourage them to increase the exercise. For both desired body image and to quite frankly cope with possible roid rage from your hormone replacement drug.

Just like in the last blog I encourage Transgender female readers to try dance exercises to learn feminine expression. I will show Transgender Males exercises that I use to get in touch with my masculine side. As I have mentioned before on this blog I am a genderqueer writer who uses both masculine and feminine expressions. First is the abdominal assault link which will be in a clickable text format. Do not exceed an hour of exercise per day as a beginner! 

Abdominal assault click here

For Transgender men I would have them do a lot of Strength training. To help them see more of the positive effects of their new chemical make up. Now, of course with strength training, I recommend doing a little core. With Strength, you can bulk up in the arms & bloat out in the middle, so I recommend doing core exercises sufficiently.

Now honestly, I wish I could say I encourage someone of steroids to workout less but the fact is after a while a burden may fall on you to live an active life. Definitely consult with your physician about how to approach this change as safely as possible. With Hormone replacement therapy a lot of the medicine is still improving to suit individual needs every day. To mitigate the effects of testosterone I can think of no better strategy than to integrate a fair amount of strength training into your daily routine to help handle the effects.

Personally, I do Strength training right before I go to see my boyfriend on weekends. It strengthens my arms, heightens my awareness & increases my energy for whatever is in store. It also has a key benefit of making me feel more comfortable in masculinity. I am not the most comfortable in masculinity but Strength definitely helps. It also helps my self-esteem that I am able to lift things some people can not lift. When I was at Giant Tiger on my recent placement with Keys Job Center? I was able to lift Banana crates the other staff could not by myself.

People, who inspire me to grow old?

People who inspire me to grow old

Ashton Deroy writes: Let us face it, many people among my income class do not desire to grow old. The tedious life of living poor in a country that increasingly includes the wealthy in the overdeveloped economy while leaving us behind. It is very tempting to quit this life. I am a Socialist who panics about the Social & Environmental decay of society. The future seems bleak & people seem like they have stopped paying attention to what Society needs.

The last time I was ready to call it quits on my life was 4 years ago at 22 years old. I turned off my brain & started doing crazy things. Like taking an ill-advised bus trip to North Bay from North York. Where the bus took me near a forest fire.

I got sick from smoke inhalation. This had me down for a week at a stranger’s house where I went to get high. This was the craziest place my declining mental health ever took me! Fast forward 2 years later.

I am in a relationship, near fixing my life & moving to a safer address as of March. What I discovered is? When you are looking to live a longer life there is something essential you need to do. Ask yourself “Who inspires you to grow old?”

Tommy Douglas

Tommy Douglas cartoon

Tommy Douglas was the father of Canadian Socialism. He was anti-war, pro-health care for all & he did economic reforms that saved a collapsing economy. Near 80 years old Tommy Douglas was struck by a bus. However, he recovered by his 80th birthday. He is a true symbol of Canadian kindness, resiliency & intelligence.

Grandma Pat

Grandma Pat

Not the biggest fan of her current Conservative stances. However in 2011 Grandma Pat & I both voted for Canada’s Socialist Party the NDP Party. Like it or not? Grandma Pat was a big part of the reason I became a Canadian Socialist first before I ever voted Liberal. For that, I am glad I had her guidance.  Being a Socialist means you have principles of community, compassion & Sustainability. Being a Liberal tends to mean you stand on a meaningless Progressive mishmash of ideas. She is a testament to the fighting spirit of Rural Canadians  & she is a part of a generation that raised Rock & Roll, hippies. Like my Dad and my Uncle Rick.

Kaylib

Kaylib Drury

Kaylib is my significant other & my best friend. Truth be told I could see growing old in a dignified way with a partner like Kaylib. Around him, I behave rationally & really think things through. I would say that some of my best writing has happened because Kaylib got me to think more deeply about what I was going to say. The other part about Kaylib that inspires me to grow old? I really want to see the successful person he becomes. He is so intelligent & he understood Statistics in my Loyalist College diploma program when a lot of my classmates in 2019 did not!

This blog was written in 2020. A year that would begin a downward decline of public mental health. Statistically, Mental Health issues related to suicide are at an all-time high within Ontario. The CAMH wait for services is way too long. Yet mental healthcare remains primarily Privatized.

Locks are installed

Locks are installed

Ashton Deroy Writes: My campaign for bedroom door locks is over readers. As of February 7th 2020 me and the female tenant I have referred to have had locks installed on our doors. We are now sleeping through the night more soundly & I am more sure now that my life’s work will be protected. I don’t know if you have caught on by now, but a adversarial Public Relations campaign is not a first choice move I like to go to.

This was a move I went to after having exhausted options of discussion. Despite the success of the locks campaign I will still be changing addresses March 31st 2020. I don’t think it is wise to live under the rental of a property management company that needs so much opposition to hold up bare minimum legal rights. I say this, thankful they completed the lock installation but weary of the future.

As a result the legal matters between Jango Property Management, Jamie Macari & I will be moved out of the public spot light. I have moved the prior blog articles/branding to a safe storage. I have also stopped my claims to Air BnB & Municipal bylaws. Thank you to my readers & anyone in the community who may of helped with our cause. We truly could not of effected change without a community that is engaged & paying attention to our web space.

You guys are the best!

Sincerely

Why you need to fund food?

Ashton Deroy writes: This blog is an open letter to anyone involved with Keys Job center in Kingston Ontario. The narrative not included in the letter sent to Keys Job center is that I fully blame the current Provincial administration under the Progressive Conservatives here. I have also emailed Kingston Ontario’s Provincial MP who is a representative on our side. They are an NDP representative which is Ontario’s Socialist representation who currently represent my political views as a Canadian Social Democrat/Socialist.

I maximized my emphasis on rage related to this issue because the impulsive decision to make austerity cuts that harm people who can’t express their best interests is reckless. If we want people to work? We have to feed them. We have to show them it is worth working in Kingston Ontario. We have to show them that society cares about them getting on their feet. This job center should not just be a cold place of work, work work. After all the coldness of our employers within Kingston Ontario is what I consider a large contributor to the issues of working poverty within our community.

To: Keys Job Center.

Why you need to fund food_

Purpose: To convince anyone involved with funding that Grocery cards must be seen as a necessity. 

Outcome: I am hoping this will illustrate the reasons why helping with food is an essential service of this program. Not an accessory item. 

Introduction: For the Keys job program I reminded myself everyday “Don’t be judgmental.” That is because it closes you off and alienates you from others. However, at this time, I believe you need a literal interpretation of the environment of YJC in order to accurately capture what is a necessity.  Despite the fact that I am a college graduate this program has been a vital contribution to my current survival. By the time I was out of college I was desperate to survive & make decisions such as my living situation that I could not make with capacity. One of the key issues was that I could not afford food, I was disorganized in my job search & I needed feedback because my resume was sub-par. 

The first issue I mention is that I could not afford food & I was not alone because my peers were in the same boat. In fact, the lack of resources related to being able to afford food was related to many of the qualities in individual health that people told me about in the confidence of friendship from within the program. In my class, we had to vary the displayed results of malnourishment. Some of my peers had a weight that was excessively high due to poor access to healthy foods. Other of my peers were anorexic due to limited resources to acquire nutritional foods. Now I want to point out an absurdity. 

The fact is I was a poor person should not have to explain to people who allocate funding why these food cards are a necessity. You should know! There is enough information out there where you should be able to make reasonable deductions about the quality of life of youth from the ages of 15-30 who can not obtain employment. For instance, you should be able to know that many of my peers would have trouble verbalizing in an articulate manner that they struggle to afford food. We should not have to say it in writing! You should know based on readily available information as a supportive member to the poorest class in the community of Kingston Ontario. This is the most important thing the program did for me within the span of 3 weeks.

Keys helped me organize my job hunt. I feel without that help I would have stayed at home or spent time begging just to try & survive. Through Keys, I wrote down leads for meaningful jobs that could develop into careers I turn in to long term success. Again though without the assistance of a grocery store gift card, I could not have been at Keys as often as I would. Job hunting is fine. However, the immediate needs for food are more pressing. I am not ashamed to say without Keys I would not be on a Productive path & I would drain Ontario Works for longer just trying to sort out basic needs for the meantime. Again talking about my situation is embarrassing, however maybe if I do someone else won’t have to explain the awkward indignities of being poor even after attending a College program as a disabled adult! 

The program did a wonderful job helping resume organization & giving feedback on a job application. They helped me organize my professional experiences & strategize how to best sell myself to an employer. This task will help me with the use of a professional and creative CV for the next 2 years of my employment. Now I can reformat this resume when needed to search for better opportunities. As a bonus, I will say Dan did a better job than my college professors did at helping me format a resume. Something like this helps, but it is worthless on an empty stomach. If I did not have food I would not have come to Keys for this help. I would be spending my time at food banks & begging my family. Rather than focus on my professional development. This is something else I am embarrassed that I have to explain in the face of more Conservative cuts. 

“You can not cut your way to prosperity.” Justin Trudeau 2019. I understand that our current administration at the provincial level is putting pressure on everyone to save money. However, the facts are facts. Ontario has rampant poverty which the UN defines as earning less than a dollar a day, illiteracy that is vastly underestimated & workers that would never be ready if not for the full contributions of the program such as a Youth Job Connection. If I have to explain these cuts to this extent, maybe guys don’t need just a letter! Maybe you need the common sense to hire more people like me who completed college & then were homeless the month after completing college! Maybe you need less privileged administrators who are not guaranteed their roof above their head, food on their plate & absolute safety! Maybe that it is what it will take to not have issues with stuff like justifying grocery cards as a necessity to the lowest class of people! If you are considering cutting the grocery card. My only question for you is, 

“What the hell is wrong with you?” 

 

Signed with outrage!

How to defeat your own self obsession? In 8 easy steps.

received_178636976558139

Ashton Deroy writes: I don’t think it is going to surprise any of my readers to learn that I can be a little self-obsessed. Or that I am too big for my britches. If you are someone who takes on challenges you can never beat, or you think karma is your own personal justice. Maybe you think god has taken time for a personal relationship to you or a personal interest in you.

The Universe does not revolve any single one of us. We need to cooperate, collaborate & behave within a productively within a societal collective. “The consciousness of God is the self-consciousness of man.” The Essence of Religion in General. Feuerbach
Essence of Christianity:

In essence the world & therefore the Universe does not revolve around you. None of us are so important we should harm democracy, the environment and the Social Responsibility of the societies we continue to wish to live in. Instead we must find a way to serve society from the collectives we wish to participate in. For example if the family you want to be around votes progressively, you probably should become a progressive if you wish to further that relationship. The problem with thinking the Universe revolves around you & overdosing on individualism is it puts you in a position where you are inaccessible for others. This is where the law, politics & written word become important unifies societies. Versus an individual stance on karma as appropriated by North American society falls short more as a self-indulgent manifestation to take joy in someone’s suffering.

Our massive egos hinder us, they don’t empower us. Protecting a high & mighty ego at the expense of reality is a daunting task. In my family this has resulted in people who are too self-important to work, attend education or even use a social program to for help to find employment. No shots can be taken to the ego & the possibility one of these unemployed idiots might be entirely wrong is viewed as absurd in their eyes. To everyone else it is shared in their collective back talking which the egotistical narcissist can’t even fathom as a fact of life. The fact of life being (If you fall short in morality, work or any responsibility. People are going to judge you in a place that is away from your awareness in a way that breaks away from tyranny.)

Believe it or not I don’t greet everyday with a smile, some affirmations and an anti-depressant. I am functionally miserable. This includes self-actualizing as an autistic adult then realizing just because I exist does not mean people will automatically validate me & treat me with respect. That being said I attended ENSS as one of the few gay people in 2012. I can scrap when I need to, prove someone is wrong &  use social politics.

Here are 8 Steps I believe will help you defeat your self-obsession:

  1. Choose between, There is no god or God has better things to worry about than their personal relationship with you- To defeat your self obsession. Society needs you to choose. Either there is no god or god has better things to worry about than their petty uninteresting relationship with you. Realize things are happening in the world that are larger than your personal crisis. You also have to realize some people may not find what is happening in your life to be interesting. People may find it alarming, concerning, stupid, mundane or you may speak only to be ignored. On the flip side god may find your life to be mundane, stupid, alarming or just ignore you as insignificant.
  2. Realize karma isn’t your personal justice – For me I’d say Karma isn’t my personal justice. I use my blog & when needed my boot (kickboxing). Ultimately this point is just about accepting the fact there is no force in the Universe carrying out your will for what is right & what is wrong. We live in a Nihilistic Universe where we have to make smart decisions & care for our valued individuals in order to survive as a tribe. Essentially you are not the center of the Universe. Consider this, according to Wikipedia Karma is a concept of Indian religions that have just been widely appropriated by obnoxious loose spiritual hipsters with an out of control self-obsession & self-catering view of justice. Origins of Karma  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karma 
  3. Live by “Reason is a slave to the passions” David Hume – I am one of the few people in my family who passed High School the first time around. I think this quote had a lot to do with it. If I volunteered I volunteered for causes I cared about. Cancer research, LGBT rights & solving world hunger. I am a Socialist at the end of the day. To go further into this, Christopher Rudan my ex who is learning psychology loved to talk with logic & facts constantly. However he was an empty book when it came to passion. He had no passionate morals, he was the worst kind of atheist who used a philosophy that allowed him to do whatever he wanted. He was self-obsessed, selfish & even worse empty inside.
  4. Don’t bore smart people with stupid issues – We need to go back to a society that recognizes the merit in Hard Workers and the Educated. We need to spend our time with the higher minds of society in a way that is meaningful and rewarding to them. That is just the basic tenant of a meritocracy. To use an example from my life, my brother is a nurse. We like to watch wrestling together, but we are at a stage now where Kyle only wants to watch the high quality performances. He doesn’t want to see stupid gimmicks & tired old story lines. Or another example, my aunt is in the army. When I see her? I actively choose not to bore her with stupid Hippie issues. They just would not interest her most of the time. You want to acknowledge the preferences of the person you are with & cater your interaction to them around that.
  5. Consider the opinions of others. Even if you do not agree – I am not a Conservative. I am a Socialist, but I understand the values of Conservatism quite well. That is because I am not actually closed off to my ideals the way some people idealize I am. Of course I had Conservative friends in college! I went to school for Business after all. If I didn’t remain tolerant and open minded to their ideals, I would of deteriorated every conversation to a screaming match.
  6. Respect yourself without worshiping yourself – I have learned there is a big difference between respecting yourself and acknowledging you are entitled to basic rights & an opinion. Versus telling people you are a genius or even telling people you are smart when you are not… “I am sorry to say if all you do for your intellectual diet is watch shit-posting videos on YouTube & play Fortnite you are an idiot!” You need to participate in active intellectual activities. I recommend audio-books for people who need to tune up their brains.
  7. Don’t talk on & on about yourself – No one is so interesting they should feel the need to do this. I am not opposed to saying “Shut up, you are annoying!” I mean there are certain people who ought to be invoiced for using your conversational time in a selfish way. Stop using people as a toilet for your life story. Many people just are not interesting enough where they should actively practice excessively discussing themselves.
  8. Always remember civility is an illusion – Everyone is acting a part society has convinced them to play. When it comes down to it? We are over grown aggressive primates. A lot of people go around thinking, “Everyone else should be civil but I get to be a complete jerk.” Civility is an illusion, if you want to throw down there are a lot of people who don’t mind ripping off the disguise placed on them by civilization and kicking you in your stupid head! Everyone thinks this mental illness epidemic came out of nowhere, but I truly believe it is just humanity re-loading their primitive roots. Things have gotten too complicated & too stupid. Many people seem ready to jump out in to the open and act like stupid feral primates again. I personally think I can put on civility for 10 hours a day to go out & work. After I am done though I go back to being a monkey who wants to exercise by running, dancing, boxing & loving.

If you are reading this and you can process the fact that you are self-obsessed you need to start getting over yourself immediately. You need to actualize how small & insignificant you are. Once you begin to actualize yourself you can begin to improve yourself. From there we can move in the direction of bettering ourselves & realizing the fact that many of us need to make ourselves smaller for the interests of the collective. Stop making yourself a big deal, go to work, the gym or even go get your high school diploma. Stop being a moron!
