My brother went to Catholic School in High School. Apparently somewhat it was to study the management and creation of religion. We wanted to create a culture that again was LGBT+ Progressive. Pluralist & inclusive. (We may have radicalized ourselves somewhat but we are hippies) I am reading…
“The first use of the term recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary was by philosopher and social theorist Alain Locke in 1924 to describe Robert Lowie’s “extreme cultural relativism”, found in the latter’s 1917 book Culture and Ethnology. The term became common among anthropologists after Boas’ death in 1942, to express their synthesis of a number of ideas Boas had developed.” From the video description of Cultural Relativism linked above.
However, the practice of Wiccan activities is relaxing. Wiccans also share strategies and rituals to be adopted by others. I feel like an intellectual I can contribute and participate. Also in participating in this culture it is a lot better than sitting around and doing nothing.
Rhetoric: I was smoking with my brother in a circle like we normally would. He let me know that he wanted me to embrace my new found passion for Socialism but he said “Make Wicca your subculture.” You know what? I am enjoying the traditions of Inteligensia but why not add some Wicca for happiness?
Why Capitalism isn’t compatible? We don’t pay for this. We participate in these practices as a community & importantly as a family. perceptually the practice of paid-for Wicca in exchange for a show is entertainment and should be morally viewed as such. This practice would have tainted the tribes that contributed to the early collaborative works of Wicca. There is a real-life history of our practices. Wicca was officially created in the United Kingdom.
Are we communal? Only when we opt to live together in a first-world style family. It is important to mention “family” to us is not defined by blood. It is defined through spiritual connections and collaborations. Also like most other people in the world I have the resiliency of a son of divorce. (Divorce really is treated like a bigger deal than it ought to be.) The misery of divorce from a Utilitarian standpoint for me means that I only practice common law marriage.
It is hard to firmly set one’s philosophy and culture into words. However, I did like the aspect of the challenge from a language execution perspective. I have found the dismissiveness among atheists to Wiccans very insulting. If we use a physics model of observed reality I am an atheist. However, if we use the model of Social Media culture…. I am not! I am a Pluralist and that means I support someone’s right to faith.
If I had to sum up my experience of my Democratic Simulation in 2 descriptions. 1. I display the traits of a niceness tyrant & somehow an opportunist for material gains. I usually treat people with respect and I damn well demand I am treated with respect. I am also geared towards impulsive decision making at times especially with material motivators. I am the person who watched their aunt’s dog in exchange for food in North York. I am not shy about that motivation. She was a damn good cook.
I have to relax up a bit on impulsive decision making – I have a personality where a great deal of decisions is driven more by impulse. I am working on it but it is there. This would also be a cliche about an addict with autism. I am impulsive…Doy… Impulses aren’t always forgiven as impulses. That obviously is clear.
Niceness tyrant – This is my most alarming trait. I am a Niceness tyrant… A niceness tyrant thinks they can get away with just about anything so long as it achieves the common good. This doesn’t make helping people immoral. It makes helping people as apart of a larger dictated plan immoral. This comes from being trained in Sales, Customer service & Customer service Excellence. It is important to fight but I should strive to fight fair.
Morally flexibile for material gains – Again I talk about living wage all the time on on here. It is easy to see that I have wealth motivations. It is also easy to see. I don’t think I will achieve wealth by the means of any excess talents. Just by the means of Sales & Marketing abilities. My gains were achieved primarily by utilizing my my Communications background. Not by any special abilities in the game. I have to be careful never to accept bribes and to know my loyalties and stage my own trasnparrency.
I love freedom and I hate society’s rejection of healthy interdependence – I say all the time in feminism. Our obsessive fixation on Independence is absurd. We achieve wealth together. We achieve success together. Ultimately it makes more sense to be a team than Individuals. That is the point of Collectivized thinking.” I am not saying I desire to be a culture to reject outsiders. I would like to work on changing that a lot actually. Rather I am saying that if we went about love and belonging the right ways in our Economic organization. We wouldn’t see so many burn outs. We have to remember that people are in this thing called life to be around the people they love. Not live at the job. That is my idea, not my dictation.”
Define efficiency company– Toxic efficiency is achieved when companies’ interests are prioritized much too high over community and Sustainability interests.
Here is how we get our answer? This is more speculative than anything right now but I would genuinely like a number. Here is how we get it. We add up the cost of the social assistance received by the employees’ post-call center employment. We add that up for the duration they receive the assistance.
Not just talk, eventually, we are going to get reports. Conversations are going to be had. We are going to continue to be informed and this will be dealt with. You see what I think Socialists? I think this is another version of the Wal-Mart Food stamp problem in the U.S.A. I think we have jobs that worsen social wellbeing rather than improve for the sake of the utility of the community.
Still, think a Conservative is going to balance the budget & economy humanely? Give me a break!
Here is an idea:
Give employees time to adjust to work culture.
Allow for mistakes
Don’t fire without just cause (Not the efficiency just cause… “No no… NO!” )

This is being written because in spite of this post. I still get some conversation on this topic.
Summary of the Be Obsessed or Be average theory: Install your brain with intense and irrational ideas about efficiency, effective workplace culture, and delusions of unhinged Capitalism.
Why I am denouncing my endorsement of this book?
In my opinion this book utilizes The efficiency model approach of economics, moral puritanism, and high-pressure sales style madness.
I will probably always have this audiobook because I am not a hater. I am just actualized about the sum total of your literary contributions and the kind of culture you operate under now.
Guys like this pressure the government for lower unsustainable taxation systems, the high-pressure sale systems and they undercut customer service. We have to denounce Grant Cardone for the unhealthy moral influence he happens to be. I mean Canada does not want American Capitalism. It has failed them drastically time after time. We saw the American take on the Freedom Capitalist Dystopia with the prediction of 100,000 deaths. It may be the time we become practical pragmatic thinkers again. Fall out of love with the efficiency model and back in love with the service and care democratic model. However, to do the opposite is the speedy way to continue psychological & healthcare declines as a featured essence of the system.
I got people on the Grant Cardone Self-help train and I can tell them to jump off if I want. I say this because I feel the man has gone insane. He is talking about fighting the government to re-open his business and how everyone who got unemployment was an unloyal person. inner Screamings of morality as your audience and reader
Instead of “Be Obsessed or Be Average”. How about be insane or be moral? Where is his common sense? Where are his ethics at? Who does he see himself as? I see a person with no heart who doesn’t care. That is why I am 100% not endorsing Grant Cardone as an author & motivational sales speaker.
At this time I say we recognize the times he inspired us as a motivational comrade. While denouncing the ethics of the man. Essentially let’s grant Grant his legendary status and then move on with our attention. There is more than bottom-line logic. There is integrity, community & environment.
I wish to stumble into my beliefs of Liberal Socialism was a phase. That way it could be just a mindset I could quit. I could leave it and the planet would be fine, median incomes wouldn’t be down and the neighboring Head of State wouldn’t be a dictator. Could you imagine such a world? 😀 “That is the most Utopic thinking you will get from me today.”
This may be surprising to people. I actually don’t think Business & Finance people are the fascist capitalists’ people think. You have a hard time learning about an unsustainable investment, financial, and environmental economy. Then pretending everything is alright with some Grant Cardone style motivational Capitalism. Not a hater, I bought a book of his. I just love using him in my jokes because the guy is so damn cheesy. “I vote my business.” Grant Cardone. Got to love self-help idiots. When we want answers? They give us silly.
The problem is I don’t want to throw out the system of Capitalism. Not at all. I want to throw out the uncompromising stupidity related to the political and philosophical ideologies related to capitalism. That is what is ruining the execution of the system in the proper manner. We have character problems and problems in how we view the environment. We don’t have a Private Property problem. We don’t need to screw up agriculture. We need to fix it. Listen I wouldn’t let a Communist screw up my access to food & water. I won’t let an oil-loving Capitalist do it either!
Anyways I am not a Capitalist. I am a Liberal Socialist. I don’t have time for grandiose Business bull****. As for strong centralized authoritarian governments like in Communism? I don’t think so Kingston Ontario! I don’t want to go through this rampant disease (Coronavirus) again because some idiot doesn’t know to use Bats in their stupid traditional medicine market. Or something environmentally stupid along those lines! Again I don’t care if you are a Capitalist or a Communist. Neglecting our environment is insane! Mixing the Social Concerns of Socialism with the innovative Capitalist values of Liberalism makes sense. It is a compromise that works.
Ashton Deroy writes: I identify as a Labor or Liberal Socialist but I have never engaged in protest with a job I have actually had. I have however accidentally been honest about the working conditions in Telemarketing and almost got another employee alarmed enough to almost take collective action. Believe it or not? This was not something I was eager to do.
Do I really want to shut down an employer for the sake of financial attrition in a battle to form a union? Or do I want to secure employment with an easy to cooperate background? I’ve said the things I’ve needed to say and I have left the places I wanted to leave. I do think many workplaces would be more sustainable from a sociocultural standpoint with the social-democratic style regulation and cultural expectation. However, you got to form a collective in order to do that. You have to be an artist in social politics to manage it. I was just a good propaganda machine with an Advertising Diploma back then. However, this had serious Economic considerations beyond my knowledge at this time. For example, what if the Business pulled itself out of the community? How would everyone feed their kids?
The truth is when I had a colleague sincerely inquiring at protesting in our Telemarketing job in Quinte West. I did not hesitate to back down from that challenge like a responsibility I wasn’t ready for. I am ready to say that my rhetoric had been negative but my intention was not to disturb harmonies in the organization from within. Do I think it is an option that should be considered?
Absolutely, we can not have outsourcing practices that consider to give the bare minimum incentives to our community and expect the personal maximum in executions. I do believe the matters that will collapse call center culture will be related to a discussion on a cliche pre-conceived idea of a bizarre social experiment in Corporate ownership culture. From there future historians will have to explain what went terribly wrong and ended this culture. Literally, I do not believe this form of organization will be able to exist in the present style practices in the future. Future call centers will have to be better thought out more democratic style workplaces in order for it to match the expectations of an advanced digital society. The dignity one in the future would expect might just include not being timed for how long you were on the toilet for, that idea will just be a memory of an older society with much more tyranny.
We have evolved as society passed the ideals of individual ownership & severe authoritarian rule. So why haven’t our workplace rights evolved to suit our needs? Will I need to in my life become a passionate striker or protestor? Or will my country find a rush of highly needed Progress in employment rights and execution of that by the law? Either way it has been a slow walk in the lane of progress. Slowed down by our big dumb regressive American neighbors.
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.
Ashton Deroy Writes: Honestly, I am so happy someone just took the time to engage me on a topic I am so passionate about and that is Universal Basic Income. Now I want to let my audience know that I am more of a Labour style Socialist. I am a Liberal Socialist after all. Here is what someone wrote to me about Universal Basic Income.
“Then what is your solution to automation and the reduction of unskilled labor that used to be the entry point into the workforce? Or if people are forced into quarantine and cannot go to work? Sounds economic policy can’t exist when those writing the policies benefit from the system as it is, unless there is a belief or rallying cry from an electorate that holds its politicians accountable instead of voting because they wave a blue or red flag. UBI at least addresses some of these issues without prioritizing stockholders or corporate interests first.”
There is a way better answer that doesn’t care at all about corporate or investment interests. It is called the Right to Work. I would support that a lot more than Universal Basic income. With a Right to Work, it is your pleasure to service society you are choosing it and you and entitled to flexible work conditions. With Universal Basic Income, you just get cash.
Honestly, I have heard the argument for Universal Basic Income and how we are on the path to being able to have Automated Communism. Listen to me when I say. In every version of Socialism & Capitalism that fails. It has a lot to do with under regulation and under participation. If you really think about Socialism & Capitalism. What is the real value? The value is in how many people are going to cooperate with the system. How well does it keep society in check?
In this society, we dream of where everyone gets free money. No one except the essential few has to work. It is not a dream! It is a nightmare! North Americans as a whole are not quiet & responsible people. So here is what happens? Addiction goes crazy, obesity goes up & GDP goes way too far down. That is the automated Communist/Capitalist dystopia in a nutshell.
Here is my problem with the state of unskilled labor and how it is being viewed in society currently. True or false low education is directly related to the crime rate? We need to see the obvious flaw in the current system and in Universal Basic income as it relates to unskilled laborers. These really are dangerous & I am sorry sometimes idiotic people we really should be keeping busy for 8 hours a day. It is called The Right to Work. Some have referred to it as Workfare. I don’t care what you call it.
I don’t care who pays for it. I don’t care how we achieve it. The point of The Right to work is this. Not participating in society has disastrous effects on someone’s mind. Like it or not? People aren’t going to take their Universal Basic income and read poetry all day. There is a bigger chance they take that money and do a lot of stupid stuff. However, with a job to return to tomorrow. Maybe we lessen the possibility of free time for stupidity?
