Why I am a Socialist? Not a Marxist & not a Communist.

Why marx was right

Ashton Deroy Writes: I love to listen to this book. Not because I think Marx was a genius! I think he was a deeply flawed alcoholic who designed Communism to force people in to accepting his stubborn belligerent ways. For in his ideals of Communism it allows Marx to fish, hunt & farm whenever he wants. With no obligations. responsibilities and checks and balances. In my opinion this Philosopher is just a typical troubled person.  Marx was an alienated person who even cheated on his wife. So because he was alienated he dreams of a society that suffers with mass alienation as well. The Marx design of Communism is designed so that if you read it and you are a bit of a loner. Or maybe you are even a little mentally sick you can literally believe Society & Capitalism is what is wrong. You are perfectly fine though, you just need to change society to accept you.

Sometimes you need to get your head checked especially if you believe in Communism. I am a Liberal Socialist. I objectively believe a regressive Canadian society with throwback Conservative values will kill me & all of my siblings. I don’t know if we can all work through our mental problems and end up fine. Or if Matt will remain forever an nonfunctional alcoholic. Or if Ashley will remain without a full education. I do know if they don’t have social safety nets they are screwed!

I went to Seneca College & took a course on Politics. Then I also began taking moral Philosophy online. What I have learned objectively is? Politics and morals are instrumental tools to guide you through life in ways ideal to your needs. Meaning I am not a Liberal Socialist so much as a cool choice. I just think it is the only version of Socialism that works & my family doesn’t understand Conservative culture enough to make a go at it.

What is Liberal Socialism? It is a balancing act in democracy of choosing Social ownership for the means of things like healthcare, education, Social Security & maybe even telecom. Then allowing a Private Market for areas related to recreation, food and tech. It is just a better design for Capitalism based on FDR’s Economic model. Also a bit on Charter Rights & freedoms for Canada that is important to Liberal Socialist values. We know enough about what works for Capitalism & what works for Socialism to now make a more definitive fixed model. When I hear about the failings of Socialism & even early Capitalism? It makes me realize we can take knowledge from these failings and design a more ideal society.

Why Communism doesn’t work? Communism breeds corruption. It is a system designed by a codependent man’s fever dream. Literally the execution in my opinion works as well as it ever could. A cliche for life. There are two types of people who will be uncompromising tyrants Alcoholics & Communists! That is because the systems of Communism are designed for Co-dependence. It doesn’t provide incentive for Economic contribution, there are not enough checks on power & like in the case of Romania. Communism leaves a power vacuum that is always filled at some point by a despot. Prediction “Oddly enough Donald Trump will do the same thing.   Due to the fact checks & balances were not placed on Trump’s power. It stands to reason the precedent has been set to allow a despot much worse than Donald Trump to replace him.” That is just Corporate Communism and it is a different story all together.

5 Years later… Dialogue on StarTek in Kingston Ontario.

Malicious intent

Ashton Deroy Writes: Even After 5 years later & a return to Kingston Ontario. I still have a bad taste in my mouth when people mention my ex-employer StarTek. I mean I don’t know why? They were so “perfect” to me.  Maybe it was the lack of schedule control, the fact they pay under the living wage or maybe it was just the fact that creatively speaking I would deal with their terrible customers all day & then the manager I had would chuck dog s*** at me!

It is worth exploring in a full-blown style essay. Why am I still upset with StarTek 5 years later? I guess you can say I almost never dealt with them properly. Maybe today helped though when I called the company’s Human Resources department & told them 5 years later, but I am still pissed. The first thing is the lack of schedule control. People have families & Social lives. Yet time after time StarTek unnecessarily cuts careers short because people are dealing with family issues, childcare issues or just mental health issues. Damn it StarTek, why should I not call you and tell you I am pissed?!

https://www.ontariolivingwage.ca/living_wage_by_region

The living wage for Kingston Ontario is $17.57 hourly. Not $15.50 you cheap pieces of s****! You represent T-Mobile and it is a seriously bad reflection on them that they can not pay their employees a living wage. Again this is adequate aggression coming from me. You have 0 right in the public’s eye to act like another corporate Tyrant! Pay your people a living wage & realize that it is not up for debate.

Creatively written: Lastly, why would I be happy about a place where I was bullied by customers then bullied by management? Like I said it is pretty much like I was being picked on by customers on the phone 10 hours a day. Then when I got off the phone…. My manager made sure my mouth was open wide so she could huck in dog s****! Yes, it is reasonable to be reviewed as an employee, but what happened to me was a systematic beat down.

To StarTek:

Kiss my a**! My friends were considering you for employment and I just wanted to share my true opinions. No, I do not think my friends should work for StarTek. I consider my movement an outside intervention on behalf of the workers of Kingston. Do better, I am not afraid to say you need to do better.

(613)-888-1958 is my telephone number. If you have a concern with my blog feel free to text me or call me. Yes, I indeed called StarTek’s human resources department today to say “5 years later & I am still pissed.” I think it needed to be said. I am still asked about StarTek and this act of civil disobedience was to say, “I have reasons to feel the way I do about StarTek.” This was a very upsetting experience for me.

I believe call centers starting back in 2015 beginning with StarTek played a role in my downfall to a road of drug addiction, self-harm and suicidal behavior.

Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index. Also the Marijuana Blacklist.

Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index

Ashton Deroy Writes: This index is for my tribe of stoners to let them know about safe & unsafe cannabis purchasing locations. Click my name to check out my Facebook page. Please like and Subscribe for the update. This is my Tyendinaga & Marijuana safe shop index. Thank you for clicking on to my website. Just a reminder that marijuana from the reservation is considered purchasing illegal cannabis. I very much recommend purchasing legal containers to store your illegal cannabis.  

The reason for creating this safe shop index is so that family & friends have access to information on acquiring marijuana safely from different available resources. 

Oasis

My step Brother Matt recommended Green Grass Oasis. While I wouldn’t say much on the Res comes close to medicinal quality. Green Grass Oasis comes pretty close. I have been able to successfully use their THC and CBD products when in need. 

OGD

Organic Green Dispensary was recommended by my uncle. Name is omitted. They gave us free joints on 4/20 and they have the best selection of edible products in Tyendinaga. 

Better Buds.jpg

Better Buds is recommended by a friend Ryan. He says he likes the variety. Thank you Ryan for letting other people know the safe places to shop on the Res. I am sure the readers and close social circle will appreciate this information.

Ontario Cannabis Store

No shame in buying legal!

I understand people in my stoner tribe might have a few objections to buying legal Marijuana. However, the OCS is used by healthcare providers in the tribe, colleagues & I used it myself to buy Tangerine Dream. That is a high-quality Cannabis Cup 2010 winning strain. Also the quality is higher & the taste is better for those of us stoners who love a clean marijuana strain for a mid-afternoon high tea time.

 

Spark Medical Cannabis

Do you know the pros of medical cannabis? 

  1. Tax Deductible as a medical expense
  2. Social stigma is often removed as a medical user who consulted with healthcare providers. 
  3. You can travel anywhere in Canada with medical cannabis. 

“However, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows for medical cannabis to be claimed as a “medical expense” deduction on your federal income taxes, the same way you can claim the cost of hearing aids, insulin, or a wheelchair. Here’s how it works.” RateHub, 2019

Black List

Legacy 420

Legacy 420 Is blacklisted. Unnamed sources from my stoner tribe put out rumors that range from product tampering to the store being gang-affiliated. It is a shame, they had these cool radio ads I used to hear from Rock 107. My favorite Quinte West radio station. 

Pot Shoppe

The Pot Shoppe is now blacklisted due to the fact a cashier attempted to give my roommate improper change to pocket a lot of extra cash. We are talking they used to do big business with the shop. Then they decided to blacklist them because of one attempt at an unethical behavior. The shop also runs a radio station with music I am sure they do not have the rights to. I am not sure how copyright law is executed on Tyendinaga but I imagine if caught they could land themselves in some hot water! 

Marijuana news

Brock University’s Dan Malleck, an expert in drug and alcohol regulation, says the government “should have created a mechanism that allowed illegal producers to move quickly into the legal producing system.” Read more on Toronto SUN

Ashton Deroy Belleville Ontario

Ashton Deroy Writes: Hey readers I have the opportunity to seek employment again after leaving HGS for being a bad fit. I am releasing my resume again to allow for me to be indexed and for me to be head hunted. I have always maintained I am a talent in the workplace and I deserve to have employers competing for me. Even though I was at a call center I was a bad fit for. I want to continue on the success of 2018 when I was working at 10 Fitness and continue to build my employment success. 

If you can think of employment I am a good fit for. You are welcome to grab my resume link above and forward it to employers seeking talent. If you have any questions, please contact me at 647-850-6802 or email me below. Again I consent for viewing parties to send my resume to potential employers.

Hot Dog Eating Contest? Why does Quinte West embrace this culture?

Why are we doing this

Ashton Deroy writes: In a town that struggles with obesity, high social assistance use & lack of healthcare. What is our town government doing? If you feel like Quinte West lacks community participation there might be good reason. While beer & fast food are sadly a staple of our town’s culture. We have to ask, “Should we be changing this?” 

Should our town really celebrate the people most capable of over stuffing themselves with food? Meanwhile we have people struggling to take care of themselves in town. It really stands to reason we need more celebrations of athleticism  & less emphasis on gluttony. What is there to celebrate about a food consumption contest? 

The Bay of Quinte culture requires a lot of change. The first thing we can do is criticize what is happening. The next steps are to have public discussions, engage public figures & continuous research. Do you think this spectacle is needless? Leave a comment or email me at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com
