Mental health Socialism

A Social philosophical look at honesty. Autistic Philosophy.

Ashton Deroy Writes: Honesty is a contextual value. This is something I maintain. Despite the fact that it has been viewed as a theory of unhealthy denial. Maybe there is an inch of truth to that. I am an autistic social philosopher who has barely hung on to their grips on reality, life & sanity.

On the other hand… Is it any more healthy to be a truth seeker? 

Imagine if you are the spouse of a cheating lover. Should you seek out proof of the infidelity and drive yourself mad in the process? Or simply make a decision to weigh your trust in your partner and act accordingly to that.  A lot of time what can be observed in marriages that lack trust turns in to the partner who has been faithful chasing after their spouse’s betrayal only to find out the betrayal was imaginary. What do we seek truly in our truths?

Imagine if you will that the truth is a river & a lie is a damn to that river. You also do not deal with scarcity because in this scenario you have plenty of water to drink from. Either the damn will break on its own time and reveal the truth to you. Or you will drink from your own water supply while respecting the boundary of the damn.

How honesty reveals the inherit ugliness in others?

Imagine for a second that humanity is filled with swine dressed as people. These people will say stuff such as “I’m just being honest.” As an excuse to hurt others or even manipulate them. Why do we think we value this? It hurts the civilized people & leaves the swine just fine because their kindness has left them in such a way that has dehumanized them. Whether we like it or not the civility we expect in society requires us to lie to some degree in order to preserve the dignity of others.

What swine reveal in moments of honesty?

We live among the under-educated swine and their honesty is not flattering in the slightest.  These are some listed examples that reveal the human swine that live among us outside the civilized Socialist and Progressive societies. Hopefully in seeing these we spot poor traits in ourselves. Then make corrections adequately in the goal of the common good.

They will live dirty – The swine in honesty reveal they have no respect for their environment. They will leave trash everywhere, use the bathroom wherever they choose & will make no consideration for germs or their surroundings or other people and animals that may need the environment. They do these things & scream “Freedom!” Thus highlighting our Libertarian Swine movement.

They are openly prejudice – Mostly seen in Xenophobia & Trans-phobia these days. However you see the bigotry in all walks of life. If you are prejudiced to people because of minor characteristics. Then you reveal that through your truth you reveal your swine side.

Sexual indiscretions – We live in a world where people who commit sexual acts of violence are not quite held accountable. I still don’t want to hear about it, even in the context of honesty! “You were more appealing in your human clothing Mr. Pig.”

They are just offensive – You may hear a swine laugh about something off color. Then go “So true, so true.” The truth & honesty are only weaponized when used to rob someone of their dignity. Doing this does not mean you practice any kind of civilized humor.

Honesty is your weapon – You use it for manipulation or to demean someone’s overall wellness. This is also the symptoms of being human swine. You think you can use honesty to alter the behaviors of others. However, honesty is always used in the wrong context when you use it to control someone and make them unhappy.

Honesty is a contextual value. If you are swine then it isn’t one of your valuable traits. You should not expect positive social awards for your honesty. You should expect public ridicule for it. Unfortunately moral Philosophy is no longer mainstream but it ought to be. Many of our approaches to life are now arbitrary and our values meaningless. I would much prefer the mechanisms of social civility to the arbitrary weaponized honesty.


Jango Property Management site plan

We will be exposing Jamie Macari for the Swine he has become moving forward. If we are to head towards civilized society we must punish the swine. Jamie Macari is 100% religious, sexist & ablest swine.  We will expose him and open him to ridicule.

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.

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.

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care. Re: Transgender Mtf Youth and the Sex Industry: Determinants and Risks

Bringing Compassion & cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care

Rudan Abstract

Ashton Deroy Writes:  As usual my ex Christopher Rudan has written a summary on an issue regarding Male to Female you and the sex industry. He has written this in a way that only a Observational Psychologist without any practical education on executing fixes would. This may be something consistent with his character as a Nihilist & atheist who graduated Queen’s University without an ounce of understanding for a practical education in understanding problems & then executing solutions. Since I am a Business Diploma graduate with a diploma in Communications and I do side research in creating a functional Socialist society. I will suggest practical solutions to the problem described in Christopher’s Published abstract. I will do this in the format of a proposal rather than the format of another pointless psychology paper. As someone whose education actually focused on Community Development and Sustainability I can propose solutions to said problems.

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care.

Project description:

I want to create reading materials such as pamphlets and online accessible reading materials to increase educational awareness for Transgender sex workers. We want to expand publicly accessible sexual health clinics much like you see with the health clinic in Quinte West called Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre. Also we want to circulate positive Transgender healthcare communication information & if possible resources to expand accessibility to transition in Canada.  We also want to distribute information directed at sex workers to encourage safe sex practices for prevention of the spread of Sexual infections & disease.

Tone: We want to change the communicative tone in materials to have a more inclusive & understanding tone while using a message that prevents the spread of contagious disease. We also want to increase the competence of healthcare professionals while aiding with the Transgender Community as a whole. This may involve sharing with them details about Transgender Social culture, health facts on best use for hormone replacement therapy & information on how Transgender women get caught in the world of sex work. Also as important is teaching Transgender women how to get out of the world of Sex work.

Mediums: Social media, Information Pamphlets, Educational speakers, Purchasing Sexuality and gender Study papers & a Website information hub.

Proposed first locations: Quinte West Ontario , Kingston Ontario & Belleville Ontario.

Duration: I would ask for a 2 year commitment to funding this as a community development project.

Project Cost:  $25,000 , Also consider hiring a project administrator for $30,000 per year salary.

Why should visit your partner’s apartment before their WiFi is installed?

Ashton Deroy

About the author: Ashton Deroy is a millennial  writer with autism.  They are 26, partnered, Queer identified & a struggling vegetarian. 

Purpose of blog: This is a conversational blog on relationships in 2020. The blog references Socialist culture, stereotypes & what the write personally views as healthy relationship practice. Please if you like the blog hit the like button & subscribe to this content. This website is a cooperative & it shares this spot with Swan Whispers ASMR which is my Spiritual Sister’s ASMR Vlog. 

Technical aspects: Sign in to your Instagram & Facebook to view all parts of this blog. This is a Social media integrated blog.

Summary: This is a blog post for Millenials struggling in relationships. Millenials is mostly a label used to describe a generation of tech savvy irony obsessed whipper snappers. However some of the stereotypes made on Millenials are completely true. We are obsessed with the internet, to an unhealthy degree. I worked at a Telecom company called Rogers Communications and it was always the Millenials who lost their minds the most when their WiFi went down.

At a time when places without WiFi are equated to no go zones in the eyes of privileged Millenials. Why should Millenials visit their partners’ new apartment before the WiFi is installed? This weekend I visited my boyfriend Kaylib at his new place. I am going to write about the benefits of the WiFi free time we spent together. Maybe after this you will plan a retreat away from the WiFi with your loved one.

1. We got to indulge in my interests – This is because I had a laptop with cartoons saved on it & I downloaded audio books we could listen to. When people have WiFi?
There is an unlimited access to your seperate hobbies & interests.
When you go without Wifi? You have to collaborate a little. I had legally downloaded files of videos we could watch together from Netflix & we had audiobooks downloaded from Google Play. There
was an actual moment this weekend where Kaylib told me to play my audiobooks on Socialist Feminism & Democratic Economies. It was amazing to indulge my interests with Kaylib & get in to an economic discussion.
2. We took care of our relationship – Part of the Cultural Revitalization model I will be posting on my blog includes a section on a version of self-care only designed for relationships. Time without WiFi allows for
more focus on your partner. Which in turn allows more connective conversation, emotional conversation & intimate connection.
3. Got to help Kaylib with his living situation – This weekend was gratifying in a sense where Kaylib needed some muscle to carry a bookshelf from Wal-Mart to his house. I feel a sense of masculine gratification when I am needed to carry things especially for my partner. Even though I also identify as feminine, I still receive gratification from indulging in the masculine part of my identity.
A human being would not train Core De Force, Jillian Michaels Kickboxing Fast fix & UFC Fit 2014 if they weren’t obsessed with maintaining their basic function to carry heavy items & move them from one location to another. This is also a practical skill that one requires. It definitely feels good for the relationship to be able to help my partner with something that he needs. like lifting a bookshelf and carrying it home, which despite the physical demand. It was a worth wild challenge.  It is also important to notice that
in Socialist family culture cooperation & collaboration is key. You can’t have a family that you are unable to rely on in Socialist culture.
4. My partner cooked me breakfast – Now I know he probably could & would do this for me even with WiFi. However we definitely enjoyed doing this as a cooperative activity during the time without WiFi. Our mentality is very much egalitarian in the fact that if he cooks the dinner, I do the dishes. It is just the way to be. It is also little things like this that if you attempt to do them it shows someone that you are attempting to care for the environment that you are in. For other people with disabilities I highly recommend using this tactic to be respectful of the environment that houses you. Even it is for example for a weekend visit with your boyfriend. It is important to show them you care by equally sharing in the choirs & responsibilities so you are able to spend more time together.

Well that is all I want to write for today. Currently I am in a bad housing situation so I could go a while without updating this blog. I apologize to any consistent readers who are inconvenienced by this. I’d appreciate if everyone kept their subscription to my blog active however. I am grateful you subscribe & I am actually planning a dark manifesto on what happens if we don’t meet Sustainability goals. I am looking to call this piece the Decay Manifesto. Currently I am just in the process of considering how I want to display this creative as-semblance of essays, research & Conversational blogs. Please stay subscribed, this piece is going to blow your minds! Which I don’t state lightly.

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!

Why I won’t advocate for Communist Socialism or Religious Socialism?

 

Ashton Deroy Writes: Hey guys I have been busy peacefully protesting working Standards at StarTek.

StarTek Demands.png

Today we are going to go back to Business as usual. Which is discussing my theories & observed realities on Socialism.  Today I am going to share why I do not support Regressive Socialism. Like the Socialism you see in Religious Socialism (Cults) & Communist Socialism (Aggressive Nationalizing) . 

What are my Socialist values then? Well, I prefer Socialism that actually still uses money. My Socialism focuses on sustainable economic development and access to essential services & an economic safety net. My version of Socialism does not like the Universal Basic Income at this time. Rather we focus on the democratization of the workplace. We also create a newer version of Economics which recognizes Ecological sustainability. Lastly, my version of Socialism uses humanism and recognizes human rights based on Canada’s beautiful Charter of Rights & Freedoms. Technically I use the modern Canadian model of Socialism which makes sense because I am Canadian. 

If you give up Individualism & finance for faith. It is religious Socialism..png

Religious Socialism

Last week I ate at a cult recruiting restaurant. It was good Brazilian Style food. Too bad I will not be back. I preached to the cult recruiters about Human Rights. Then I realized I probably stepped on their toes for what they believed in. Take a look at this News article to hear what their faith 12 Tribes is all about. Click here to view this video. 

As you can see they are designing a society centered not around Capitalism but around their faith. This religious Socialism also uses a disciplinarian approach to controlling the behavior of children. They describe letting go of Spanking as “Hell breaking out”. This is not the grand societal design I have in mind. I am against spanking period! I saw my mom’s old boyfriend Trent Gallant beat his daughters growing up. I have just had enough of that kind of behavior. Like I have had a lifetime of exposure of it & I am 26. 

Faith + Socialism = Cult. 

It is actually that simple. If you notice people share the profits of a religious operation for the interest of the survival of their group. There is no recognition of individualism or personal property. They are using symptoms of Socialism. Then mixing with faith with Socialism can quickly spiral into the radical design. Socialism is supposed to exist to heighten everyone’s quality of life. This form of Socialism however only heightens the quality of life for the spiritual leaders. 

Communist Socialism 

Communist Socialism.png

This is a little more complicated. Explaining why I don’t like Communist Socialism. Communist-style Socialism was brought about in Russia through promises of a Socialist paradise. What happened instead? Aggressive Nationalization of private resources, businesses & properties. As well as an installment of regressive style leadership & tyrannical government. 

Communist Socialism looks a bit more like this 

Aggressive uprising + Tyrannical government + Nationalizing everything – (All human rights on a political level)

I do admire the type of Socialism you see in a place like Cuba, although it has been making more progressive movements. Communism is looking beautiful. Psst whispers “If you don’t understand the political pieces whatsoever.” However, it is a dystopian society with a lot of ugly bits hidden. For example secret police, conspiracy killings & in the case of China a hidden truth about ecological collapse. 

When we look at Socialism? We have to look at installing a practical model based on our democratic values as well as the successes of Capitalism. I look at Progressive Socialism as more of an upgrade to Capitalism through the Labor movement, rather than

Dropping Socialist rhetoric for a second. Obviously, I support Mixed Economies.

Capitalism is not doomed

Ashton Deroy writes: Rhetoric to me is speaking creatively with an image we’ve created for ourselves. I am not some Russian loving Commy though. I call myself a Socialist, but I wasn’t the first person to call myself that. It was an insult that was thrown at me by a Conservative relative! I just happened to find out Socialism has been the backbone to every major Civil rights movement in North America. Also, Socialist feminism was the best alternative to feminine alienation. The destruction of the Unions has meant we have actually begun slipping from the prosperity of capitalism to the poor workers’.

However, objectively speaking. I think we all should know the answer is not a purely Socialist system or a purely capitalist system. The answer if we are going to sustain our economies & communities has to be a middle ground. This is where? You take some ideas from Socialism for example geared by income housing, Universal Healthcare & democratization of the workplace. While also keeping aspects of Capitalism such as private ownership, gains on investment & profit. The point is you intelligently design a system with both of these things & that is where the answer lays.

I will continue to call myself a Socialist though. Sorry to say this but I think Socialism gets an overly bad spin in North America. I am genuinely offended by the waive of anti-socialist sentiment by certain Conservatives. You need to realize our world needs both of our ideologies & Capitalism without Socialism is slavery. Socialism without Capitalism can be tyranny.

Shout out to my Step Brother Matt Clarke who I ran Liberty Brothers with. He is a Libertarian Conservative & an ex NDP voter. He & I had a falling out over Politics. He had been a PPC supporter & I was a Liberal. Somehow with me becoming an NDP supporter & him going Conservative though we have been able to find more common ground.

Trenton Opoly: All Simulated Economies are is games.

Trenton Opoly

Important note on tone: As usual, remember Blogs are intended to be learning opportunities & Conversation starters. This is also is intended as an Autism blog so be mindful of that, but don’t let it spoil the great ideas. This blog has been an important tool I have utilized to practice mindfulness, self-promotion, and collaboration. Keep in mind As noted by indicators on the website I am an admirer & more importantly a learner of Socialist theory.

Ashton Deroy writes: It is tragically ironic that Monopoly was developed by a Progressive Economist to demonstrate ineffective unchecked powers of Monopolizers & Tycoons in a free market. “Yes, people Monopoly was made to prove Libertarian designed economies were oppressive and lead to mass financial bankruptcies!” Monopoly doesn’t celebrate free markets. It proves a point about sustainable cooperation making more functional longer-lasting economies. For more on the invention of Monopoly click here

How I play a monopoly?

  • I don’t develop my properties without the encouragement of the other players. 
  • I try to get all the spots I see as culturally significant. Referring to other blog posts you realize I am not going to be buying up Trenton Ontario’s Military landmarks in this cracked out version of this game. I want spots like the Grind, the natural parks & the Library. Then I tell players I won’t develop the properties so I can keep the game going fairly. 
  • I cooperate with players & trade them back properties that may mean more to them than me. That is because in a Socialist Society we believe passion is a major part of choosing a profession. 

Three things you need to know if I leave a game of Monopoly with you: 

  • If I leave a game first & not bankrupt? I am tired of someone’s lousy behaviors about unsustainable market dominance. This happened in the game with my Uncle & cousin over the Christmas holiday. I am not even sure everyone understood that & I am okay with that. I also realize the game is no longer unpredictable & I am bored. No one is cooperating with my planning. No one is operating strategically. In a game of Monopoly where one player gets ahead too early, players should try to strategize to cut the wheels on that player. If you don’t do that though? that player will surely win… In real life this is where small interest groups all attach together & take down overly influential organizations. When we get to this place in the game? The game is no longer fun because the end result is a forgone conclusion. I left the game with my Uncle, his girlfriend & my cousin because I knew the cards in everyone’s hands. I knew the result would be Nicholas winning. Again this game is about proving the progressive economic theory about oppressive Free-market. 
  • If I leave abruptly? In High School East North Umberland Secondary School, we would play this game at the fasts where we raised money for developing countries. The Fasts were like gigantic sleepovers at the High School. They were fun & earned students volunteer hours. Sometimes I would play this at a fast. If I leave after 1-3 turns, I’ve literally decided I don’t want to commit to spending enough time with you to finish a full game of Monopoly with you. I am very good at telling who I am going to have an enriching conversation with. Someone with overly competitive tendencies, for example, is someone I may start this game with & not finish. It is as it seems, I disrespect you as a person & I wanted to waste your time. If you are a Capitalist you literally use the phrase “Time is money.” Which is absurd, but related to your own views of the world I have chosen to hit you hard with massive disrespect by wasting you & my time.
  • Sometimes I am just exhausted- Even if you could play Monopoly with excessively cooperatively people. Which I never have, but I would like to. It is a brain exercise at the end of the day. Economics is my favorite topic… It is also somehow all at once… Boring, Nostalgic, Depressing, Uplifting, Enlightening, underthought & overthought! Again Economic theory related to Socialism, Capitalism, Communism & Conservatism is a sought out discussion. It is one of my favorite collections of topics. It is also draining & you need to take a break.

Economics

If we play Monopoly together? Remember I do not play to win, I play to cooperate fairly & sustainably. I will also probably be the first to leave the game, especially if the game is predictable. However, if I am eliminated later in the game I found people were playing interestingly. People who learn Economics, Business, Politics, Social Science & Sustainability see a simulation market differently. An overly predatory game is just a bad game if you are playing with a simulated economy. Something to think about is how could you change playing Monopoly? What would you do to design the game to run longer? Or to make it a better simulation economy?

Other games that tried to simulation economies. Click the names before the –  to learn more about the games:

  • Secondlife – Secondlife toyed a lot with Sale of player goods & services. It isn’t as fun as it used to be. Fun fact, one of the things the players used the simulated economy for was for the simulated sex trade. People also claim from within Secondlife it isn’t a game, it is a virtual world! In my opinion, if you simulate economies, “you are a game.” Also not an interesting game, most people are playing weird games of House.
  • The Sims – Based on designing dollhouses & simulating life. The Sims also begins toying with simulated economics a lot in the Sims 2 & Sims 3 series.  In fact, in Sims 3 you could go around buying privatized businesses & firing all the employees. This was something I made my Sims bad guys do… I have never been much for capitalism & I am not very creative. Tirnua, was an Eco-Socialist Simulator in my opinion & it was created by the same developers who created the Sims Online.
  • Socialist Monopoly– This may be one of the most non-sensical things I have ever seen in my entire life. Much like the Star Wars BattleShip game… I will buy it at some point! It seems idealistic, unpredictable and simply absurd. I am down to try it!

Fun fact, you could replace the Capsim Business Simulation at Loyalist College with any one of these games. It would not make a difference in the quality of education, you would improve the experience of the course 10 fold by simply it being fun. Yes, I believe you could replace that course with Monopoly and have it be just as productive! “Simulated Economies = games” Come at me bro, you Commerce & Business nerds! Fun fact kids, you will get more money out of learning to play Poker than playing with Simulated fantasy economies.
