Imagine you are a man. Not a civilized man but a pseudo savage with no talent. You have no job. Yet somehow you feel better than immigrants that land in Canada. My parents often say “Everyone is entitled to their opinions.” My response, “A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.” If that is too crude you may want to try this wrestling quote by Jerry Lawler “Keep your words sweet because you may have to eat them later.” I am happy to say I am highly educated and can use deliberation to just confuse the crap out of right-wingers with no formal education. “If you come to my house and eat at my table you will be civil and treat people with the egalitarian respect they deserve!” If you have called me “Fat boy” Or “Butt hurt Liberal” Make no mistake about the type of resentful, nasty and aggressive communicative person I am. I am not thrown off by this swine like behaviour. “No Justice no peace!” , “No reality no sanity” & “No common sense, no respect.”
Here are 5 reasons why men probably like right-wing populism:
- Daddy issues – I am not afraid to say this but if you need a strong man . You might actually be a little gay. I mean it, I think you need to go explore that! Go lay naked with a dominant man. Just don’t make it our problem. Dictators aren’t your dad. They are psychotic
- Unemployment- Sometimes when people don’t work for too long they get quite a bit dumber.
- They don’t really understand politics – If you use Politics to alienate yourself… Then you don’t get politics. I use politics to speak up. You are using politics to fulfil your manifest destiny.
- Dreams of dystopia – They see a perfect world with the leader. They can’t see their shortfalls. Again they aren’t really all that bright… When they get into politics? You could say based on their current existing lack of education and extremism a sign that this a delusional voter. To quote a dumb populist “Money is just numbering on a screen.” Okay, why did you vote for the bigot though?
- No Morality – They may just be to total sociopaths.
Conclusion: How to lose a country the 7 Steps from Democracy to Dictatorship will lead to revolutionary thoughts on our checks & balances. I give the book a solid 5/5. I have also read Dictatorship to Democracy. A change is coming and Dictators won’t be invited to attend it. Thank you for reading.

Description of the video:
f you plan a #welfarestate but don’t plan a #Workers State. Then you only end up with a strong welfare state. That is what is happening to #belleville & #QuinteWest.
#Liberal style #Socialism should be the Social Democratic theory of Economic Expansion. How do we achieve meeting the needs? While also incorporating a model of working to prosperity.
The fridge & food metaphor: I am using this to explain how uncontrolled rent & rising costs to live are interdependent to a work to prosperity Economic model. If the work for the Prosperity model dies, then with it dies the culture of ambitious workers. You just have people concerned with owning the means of production. Nobody will want to support it. Think of it as highly volatile and overly idealistic capitalism.
to #BayofQuinte, #BellevilleOntario & #FordNation
There is no worker shortage. Just an entirely lacking work to prosperity Economic model.

Hey guys, let’s start being practical, and let’s start being moral. I am Ashton Deroy I graduated from Loyalist College. I have a Business Diploma and a Diploma in Advertising and Marketing Communications. Here is some Capitalist Sales Logic I won’t conform to for ethical reasons.
- You can replace a quality competitor product with an inferior product by way of Sales & Marketing – This is not Utilitarian, practical, or even generally reasonable. That is why I had trouble selling Shaw Cable products in Telemarketing. In areas, our competitors had genuinely better products and we were outdated. Everything from the telemarketing outward was outdated in Shaw Cable comparable to Telus in certain areas of Canada around 2016.
- You should never take a handout – Every handout is reduced to Socialism in the brain of a Capitalist. As a Liberal Socialist, I argue that you use the best system for the situation to ensure the health & well being of people. It felt surreal listening to a guy who buys and sells apartment buildings talk about how he will fight the government and shame everyone who is poor. Rather than encourage resiliency and morality. Something that would make good content and no one would blame him for.
- Always bidding for the cheaper solution – Never looking at issues deeper than a bottom line. I am not afraid to talk about in a job setting that if a call center seating layout is resulting in sexual harassment of an employee. Then I believe in 100% modifying the seating arrangement. That is just common sense. You know what? We had one plan for the layout today and now we have to modify that plan. To: Capitalists & Communists, “Absolute efficiency is an insane and indignant unachievable concept.” Communities have more than 1 bottom line.

A modern commentary that is non-academic and non-bureaucratic is the tradition of the Non-Voter. Not everyone should have to burden the weight of democracy. Some people should get a pass. Whether it be to learn more, abstain from an argument, or pursuit a working grind or maybe self-declared mental limitations. We ought to view non-voting as admirable and a form of peacekeeping.
We should make efforts to collectivize with like-minded people.
This being said, although that is a duty of democracy. Why don’t we give it time? When I was 18 I had a head of steam and I was ready to vote. I am still ready to vote when the time comes because I keep myself informed. As a writer, I practice the exercise of opinion. This could be an exhausting and boring duty to some. Also a Democratic population unhinged would have a battlefield of tribalism. A moderate democracy ought to be recognized and celebrated.
What is wrong with sitting out?
(Utilitarianism suggests happiness ought to be considered in situations of scarcity. The U.S. had a capacity issue with taking votes in the Democratic primary. Site closures mean they can accept fewer votes per location. Economics wise it allows passionate voters to participate and apathetic people to sign out. If political movements aren’t speaking to you. Or even maybe you reject the concept of the state entirely. (Hopefully not the second one.) Maybe you feel unattached to the debated issues. Or even from your own intellect. Either way, we should allow a tradition of sitting out and peacekeeping. I think Political science in school is designed to demand democratic participation. However, we have to acknowledge feelings of alienation especially when consider the Socialist and Libertarian traditions of politics.
For the record I voted once from a non-voter family member’s residence in municipal politics. I think since he paid the bills he ought to get the credit for that vote. Even if it went no where. Objectively speaking Duncan Armstrong was a weak politician. My website definitely gets more traffic than his did. It is sad the Progressive municipal movement was soley up to him. Jim Harrisson is definitely a media savy mayor.
I just also think we overemphasize voting and underemphasize donating as well. A Capitalist would theorize that donating would actually make democracy more accurate. Not that I am a capitalist. However, I think democracy is partially now about resource management.

Here is a challenge. Describe your personal hell in 200 words. Write it as an incentive to improve your life. What does hell look like for you? Email Ashtonderoy@gmail.com
What would my personal hell look like? What are the features? What will tempt me to stay? How will I force myself to leave?
Features: My personal hell is one I describe with unhinged intoxication, smoke and alcohol & drugs everywhere. A total cultural ghetto. There is no intellectual discussion, no exercise, and no real attempts at bettering one’s self.
Temptations to stay: The temptations to stay are based on some of the family states of mind and rituals. My family has bleak and nihilistic opinions that I believe will re-buried me in addiction down the line. Imagine how hard it is to depart from your family culture and not only that but to demand a better and more progressive family culture!
How I will find my way out to a better life? For me, I had to find traditions and identity that appealed to me. For me when this is done? I will live in the tradition and culture of the intellectuals of left & socialist leanings.

I am going to expose something not so secret. I buy Logo generated logos!
I am not a graphic designer nor would I ever pretend to be one. I am not that type of artist. Now I used Wix logo maker but here is what makes my logo personal. The eagle represents a piece of artwork my Papa Dick had that he passed on to his son Rick. I also like the eagle. I think it is a positive resemblance to the enduring spirit of Canadian Libertarian values. It is also tied into our family culture. We ( Kyle, Ashley, Kaylib & Ashton Deroy) identify our Family culture as a French & indigenous mix.
Value of Pluralism statement: In this blog we value pluralism for culture, pluralism in language & Pluralism in Philosophical outlooks. We are multicultural, we are Democratic, We are Capitalists and we are Socialists. That is thinking like a Globalist and that is the attitude we should have professionally as well as politically. When we do Sustainable development proposals? We base them on these goals by the United Nations click here.
Thank you for reading this small interest piece.
Send me any creative logos you yourself have done at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com .

Think of this blog post as a received acknowledgement & respect of a certain culture that exists within my family. This blog has already been a hot spot of Liberal & Socialist type ideas. We need to acknowledge the opposite culture that very much has a presence in this family. So what does that mean?
There is a part of me as well as a part of my family that believes in Individual responsibility, working to keep a roof over one’s head & of course a love of dollar beer! There is a part of my very Canadian family that discusses old fashion values while smoking a dart on the deck. I want to respect that family history & acknowledge their presence in me becoming who I am. Often I do think I could be a worse person and indeed a less tolerable Socialist if it wasn’t for my family.
To: my Dad
A pretty down to earth guy who just happened to raise two Socialist kids. Definitely, there needs to be a recognition of respect from me. Thank you for the openness to explore different beliefs & even at times loose spiritual religions. The way we were raised with a mix of discipline and openness to explore topics of our interest allowed us to make up our own value systems. Having the openness hybrid mixed with the discipline to pick out our own values was definitely what made me a better writer & my brother a better Nurse.
If there is one thing I have highlighted on this blog over time. It is that we need to have the ability to acknowledge & respect different world views. I think it would be a waste to highjack our family cultural values without acknowledging where they really were. So if you are a Libertarian who hates fat government spending, deficits & individuals who lack responsibility. If you love Wrestling?! You have a place on this blog. You are realistically crucial.
Ashton Deroy writes: New York Times posted an article by Kimball Allen titled my Mormon family loved until I came out. I figured that not to detract from his story that I would tell my story as well. Also, to help me come to terms with some mutual prejudices I have faced with more Conservative communities as a devoted Religious Socialist. The truth is I would say I am related to two types of families. One that is very Libertarian on my father’s side & another that is much more Conservative on my mother’s side.
However, believe it or not, I have a relationship to Mormon faith that predates my new harmonies in the family life. We did participate in church activities and meet members of the Mormon community when we were younger. So in my writing as a Socialist, I want to honor a group of people I did grow to know & respect when I was younger. I love my Mormon family culture because I do believe it captures good ideas for the community, they share many of my beliefs for Justice and they value organizing time for discipline in education.
I feel very happy that my mother feels welcomed by this community and that they continue to show interest in me & my brother’s lives as adults. This is truly a privilege and I will reflect upon it as such. Again I do carry some prejudices to Conservative culture however I want to write this with pride in sharing my background with my readers.
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.”
Ashton Deroy‘s response:
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?

Ashton Deroy Writes: Universal Basic income is basically an expansionary Economic policy that aims to provide people with a basic income that meets minimum living standards. (In my opinion the Social welfare program is preferable due to the employment created for Social Service workers, Career Counselors & administrators.)
I am going to keep this post short because I am not for or against Universal Basic Income. My Dad thinks it is a good idea but I am less sure. I will keep my opinion mostly to two points. 1. We have to greater incentivize working to prosperity. 2. We need a strong means to fund a program like this & the ability to hit the emergency breaks as soon as required. These programs have driven Communist Socialist countries to break.
CBC “Ontario’s basic income pilot project was widely expected to last three years in order to figure out if it could replace other social support systems. But it’s being axed early. The new provincial government deemed the program a failure, but many participants say it was a lifeline.”
Where I believe the program failed? Promising a 3-year commitment to these people before an election. The program was not encouraging the participants enough to step away from a government Social program into more stable full-time employment. Lastly, the program didn’t hire any Social Service Workers to monitor any type of mental or Economic progress. (Are you affected by this program being pulled? Get angry, get loud and get Anti-Conservative!)
You are not going to win my vote on this Universal Basic Income concept. Despite the fact, I acted politically to protect it by supporting Kathleen Wynne in re-election in 2018. I need to see broader Economic planning, a clear statement of values & demonstrated competence. 2022 is going to be the year of the next Provincial Election. I am leaning towards Ontario’s NDP Party because of the outstanding work of Andrea Horwath as the Official Opposition.
