I hope you liked the Cyber Security attack I staged today. That was for your benefit! 🙂
I am not even that upset. I just want to promote the seriousness of Autism + Concussion and I was willing to do it at your expense.

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:
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!
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.
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.
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
