Please don’t compare my world views to your trip on LSD! Just do me that favor.

I repeat, “please don’t compare my world views to your trip on LSD! Just do me that favor.”

I value highly the pursuit of an equal society with values of justice and dignity with cultural plurality I have read books by Democrats, Socialists, Utilitarians. I have learned about the origins of North American Social Reform culture out of New Harmony Indiana. I have praised Tommy Douglas for his work on human rights and the creation of Socialized healthcare. There is a real cultural collective of literature, historical figures, and Philosophical/Economic readings.

When you do what this person did? 

Reducing the sum of morality & a values-based conversation with real intellectual values in to “When I took acid I realized what I already knew, we’re all just creatures of earthborn under the sky and will die under the sky.”I lost a great deal of respect for this person. Of all the profound conversations I would hope to have with a fellow intellectual and fellow working-class person.  This was not in line with those types of conversations I would hope to be having. Doy I am an atheist too! I just still believe in deterministic  principles for guiding one’s actions.

Telling it like it is 

You can be an atheist and then still be a nihilist and know that I will call that out as a bad thing. Atheism is not the sum total value of our individual philosophies. If you don’t have the meaning you find it through reading and deep introspection. As a friend, you became someone I view as someone who gets lost in sloppy poorly thought out meaningless relationships with men who have drug issues.

As a person, you have become paranoid (obviously these drugs don’t agree with you and are probably illegal. I am not a police officer) As a student you’ve been reduced to nothing but a pointless party person who won’t buckle down & focus. Acid & LSD was considered a threat to cultural sanity for a reason. People during use feel like they have been enlightened. People from every faith and atheism thing they get it all figured out just from an intense trip! You haven’t woke my friends.

Acid Reader

LSD influences serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in every part of your body, from your mood and emotions to your motor skills and body temperature. According to a 2016 study, LSD also causes changes in the brain’s blood flow and electrical activity.” Google 

( This just in you are playing dangerous games with your mental health by taking acid and not consulting a physician about medicinal options or even negative health effects.)

Why I think her ex left her after 4 years based on an outsider observation? I think he lost respect for her. First of all, she is an atheist like me but let us face facts that on its own is a bleak philosophy. She was materialistic. From the prior conversations, she stated she didn’t believe his passion for world history would translate into a wealth payable skill. She was passionless and filled with deeply flawed values that go beyond practical and into bleak. The tide of her impulses just steer her to prospects of marrying for wealth, pushing desperately non-consensual commitment & her unaddressed preference for interdependence in her social culture means she is miserable by the way she steers herself. (Quite frankly I am comfortable labeling someone a gold digger in the face of the belligerent indifference to pursuits of passion in relation to education.)

Friendship Summary: This relationship was exhausting and I honestly fear her inability to grow will surpass my ability to forgive our culture clash. As a gay man & Socialist, I value being a confidant to many friends who feel like my sisters. As an autistic person who became higher functioning, I scoff at her lacking determinism to become smarter, her lacking passion for her work & inability to see why she might be offputting to men who crave emotional connections. She is one of the least self-actualized people I have ever met. She is reducing herself to a party girl wearing an “intellectual” mask. She is heartless wearing a mask of compassion & lastly she is passionless posing as a passionate person the result is total and completely fraudulent behavior, even if not a case of legal misrepresentation. You felt ripped off as a friend hoping for a deeper interpersonal relationship.

“I feel exhausted by this but it was worth journalling.”

 

 

Why the eagle in our logo?

Original

https://www.wix.com/logo/maker

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.

Retention Disses

 

Like Ashton Deroy’s page on Facebook. 

Season 4, Episode 4 of Friends “I wanna quit the gym! I wanna quit the bank!”

Introduction: This post is going to have Retention disses for bad Customer/Company breakups I have experienced. It could be fun!

I know corporate culture loves to teach and train the practice of “retention”. Honestly, it gets to be a little too much when they tell you upon leaving GoodLife the staff says in a guilt-ridden manner “We’ll miss you.” cue puppy dog eyes. No one keeps me with guilt or clever sales statements. Your best shot would be discounting the service cost. Even still though… I don’t want anyone else but me deciding what I pay for and where I go on a regular basis.

To: GoodLife Fitness

I LEFT YOUR GYM TO GO TO COLLEGE WHERE MY TUITION COVERED THE COST OF A GYM MEMBERSHIP!

It doesn’t matter though…. If someone loses their job or needs to cut back expenses. That shouldn’t be anyone else’s opinion to weigh in on. “We are just trying to keep business.” No, you are not, you are being cruel and manipulative. Don’t have your staff who never talk to me say they will miss me. That is weird.

When they say? I want out, cancel my membership. Why can’t we just end our conversation there? It is their money. Treat it that way!

To: Fido

YOU USE YOUR RETENTION PROCESS TO UNDERCUT YOUR COMPETITORS THROUGH COMPARISON. THEIR NAME SHOULD NEVER EVEN BE SPOKEN BY YOUR AGENTS!

Why people leave your company? Maybe it is all the micro charges as accessibility issues you create! WTF?! Let your customers have service. Stop pushing self-serve.

People in Self-Serve Business Relationships… Deserve to have their other half aka customers leave them!


Message to readers: Quitting a gym shouldn’t be an opportunity for emotional manipulation. If you want to quit a service and they pull that. Make them want to leave you! I would string together some choice 4 letter words or tell them it is my right to manage my money how I see fit. Don’t get pushed around by the retention team.

Highlighting an older Libertarian opinion

Check out Ashton Deroy’s Facebook page click here.

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.

Conclusion

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.

Welcome to Deroy Collective

Original

Welcome to the Deroy Collective. A website that will host Deroy content from both the Socialist opinion and occasionally the Libertarian opinion. Prior to this website had been Ashtonderoy.com now it is www.DeroyCollective.family 

What is it about? For new readers just getting to know us. The Deroy family has lived around Quinte West and Brighton Ontario for over 20 years. We are a second-generation ENSS & Loyalist College family. We are a healthy mix of Socialists/Social reformers & Capitalist Libertarians. This site has actually been an idea of mine (Ashton Deroy.) Since 2018. I just needed to make some healthier branding decisions to get to this point.

Ashton Deroy does not endorse MLM companies. However, since this website is now a collective space. The site can endorse links that I personally wouldn’t. I am clarifying this in case you need my opinion on Multi-Level Marketing companies. I am morally opposed to them. However, this website is a collective and shared space. I am not under any moral integrity clause anymore. If I post something on the website. It doesn’t necessarily reflect my views. In fact, it won’t always be my opinion I place up here.

I am actually open to writing for members of my family or exploring their opinions in hypothetical and argumentative article pieces. As well as sharing their projects in backlinks.
