Quinte West, Smalltown unities against the big guys

“They underestimate us! The politicians, the Business people, and the Employers all ****** underestimate us! They think we are all dead beats on Welfare draining the system. We see the News idiots! We know about the Wealth gap, Call center practices of tyranny& a system where elites just totally disconnected from our everyday concerns.

What did we do in return? 

We gave up on Social unity, we gave up on education and we gave up on the idea that we need to give our economy in Quinte West some serious reform so that it can be around for decades more to come!

We need to return democracy back to the workers! 

“Okay, we are in.” Just like that and next thing you know I am running a website the size of a small Newspaper route out of Quinte West. “There is no Union Presence in Quinte West.” Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh Laugh

I have to chuckle a bit to that because it is comically hilarious. Somehow the Employers are believing we are low on Workers and that there is no Union Presence. (We are Unionizing in our communities. With our friends, with our loved ones & with our environment. There is a Union forming alright. You are going to have to fight it with some Democracy because the boot of Capitalism isn’t going to do it for you.

I have some ideas on Social Reform. Let’s have a conversation:

The shame of dating a religiously intolerant person.

This is worth writing out because there were red flags everywhere in this relationship. I think I can call it 2 years of being completely stupid. I wish I could run back to myself and say to myself “You are dating a fascist, you idiot!” The belief he ranted about, complete secularism, and removing values of pluralism. That is something a fascist believed. Alright, let’s say I alleged secularism so this post is less controversial and I won’t name the ex on the blog. Know that off the record I am stating it differently because emotionally that is what I perceive. 

I am so for dating other atheists but I am sorry I am not for a cultural conversion.  I protect Pluralism. I am an atheist but I call myself a Socialist because I am opting not to call myself an atheist because it can seem to be a void to meaning, belief & morality.  We as a society shouldn’t want to confuse atheism with nihilism. Atheism should be not believing in god. Nihilism is reducing life, duty and all concepts into meaningless abstracts. Essentially Nihilism is the equivalent of just deciding not to give a F*ck and treat no one with any kindness.

I dated this Secularist idiot who proposed all religion was a mental illness. Please know that is not a belief I had, it was not something I valued and in retrospect, it is something I am ashamed of. I care about diversity, saving the planet, and heightening the quality of life for workers. I don’t value intolerance I don’t care how much of an intellectual you are perceived as, or how wealthy your status is.

(No wonder the Queen’s University students used to hate me! I understand what I did wrong.)
