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 In areas, our competitors had genuinely better products and we were outdated. Everything from the telemarketing outward was outdated in Shaw Cable comparable to Telus in certain areas of Canada around 2016.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.
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.

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.

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.

Ashton Deroy writes: This is blog going to be absolutely nuts. Someone with a Business diploma from Loyalist College is going to actually explain to you why we shouldn’t run the economy. This is straight out of crazy town. Except what will be said? Is totally & completely true.
Now yes this blog is a Socialist platform written by an autistic blogger. Yes we constantly argue the evils of the currents status of private ownership. It is hard to believe I came to this conclusion while taking a Business Diploma in college. Yet here it is. I don’t think just because you own something that it should mean you own people.
Here are my reasons I don’t think Business people should run our economy. For the purposes of this article we will use economy and society interchangeably. That is because the management of the economy directly correlates with the management of society. Economics in relation to Social Politics should be taught as one course. They are not separate topics at all!
- Single Bottom lines – Otherwise known as profits over planet and profits over people. Business people are made to put their own gains first. At the expense of everyone else! This is why 44% of jobs in Ontario earn minimum wage. Why is the economy failing? Largely this reason. We can’t run a people last economy otherwise people will not want to participate and society will indeed fall apart. Companies will sacrifice life & limb just to report high profits. As a result the individual income has taken a huge blow and society is on a downward path.
- Greed is good logic – This is the kind of logic used to slowly remove the lowest earners in society not just out of the economy. Out of society & existence itself. Greed is not good! Cooperation is good. Social well-being is good. Elderly people not dying in a wait for long term care is good. Human trafficking victims getting access to safe housing is good. Greed is bad! It hinders our society and is a cost to our most marginalized people.
- They are idiots – I am comfortable saying after graduating a Business program at Loyalist College. That I was surrounded by selfish and dangerous idiots! They aim only to exploit people and improve convenience for themselves! Listen Loyalist College students who mostly skipped out Social Responsibility & Sustainability course. You demonstrated you were crappy people. I have no reason to validate what you are doing!
- They are against challenging the status qou – All these business people care about is ensuring their gains. Innovation is only welcome if they save money. Like the thousands of teachers the Progressive Conservative government in Ontario is currently trying to replace with computers. They look at innovation, for all of the wrong reasons and it is something we need to put a check in balance in place for .
We need to control Business people in our society. Not allow for the opposite. Greed is bad, idiots running democracy is a kleptocracy, profits are not the end all be all. The status quo sucks! We need to be more responsible and kind in how we operate society. If that means discrediting Business people then that is what I will do.
Ashton Deroy Writes: Honesty is a contextual value. This is something I maintain. Despite the fact that it has been viewed as a theory of unhealthy denial. Maybe there is an inch of truth to that. I am an autistic social philosopher who has barely hung on to their grips on reality, life & sanity.
On the other hand… Is it any more healthy to be a truth seeker?
Imagine if you are the spouse of a cheating lover. Should you seek out proof of the infidelity and drive yourself mad in the process? Or simply make a decision to weigh your trust in your partner and act accordingly to that. A lot of time what can be observed in marriages that lack trust turns in to the partner who has been faithful chasing after their spouse’s betrayal only to find out the betrayal was imaginary. What do we seek truly in our truths?
Imagine if you will that the truth is a river & a lie is a damn to that river. You also do not deal with scarcity because in this scenario you have plenty of water to drink from. Either the damn will break on its own time and reveal the truth to you. Or you will drink from your own water supply while respecting the boundary of the damn.
How honesty reveals the inherit ugliness in others?
Imagine for a second that humanity is filled with swine dressed as people. These people will say stuff such as “I’m just being honest.” As an excuse to hurt others or even manipulate them. Why do we think we value this? It hurts the civilized people & leaves the swine just fine because their kindness has left them in such a way that has dehumanized them. Whether we like it or not the civility we expect in society requires us to lie to some degree in order to preserve the dignity of others.
What swine reveal in moments of honesty?
We live among the under-educated swine and their honesty is not flattering in the slightest. These are some listed examples that reveal the human swine that live among us outside the civilized Socialist and Progressive societies. Hopefully in seeing these we spot poor traits in ourselves. Then make corrections adequately in the goal of the common good.
They will live dirty – The swine in honesty reveal they have no respect for their environment. They will leave trash everywhere, use the bathroom wherever they choose & will make no consideration for germs or their surroundings or other people and animals that may need the environment. They do these things & scream “Freedom!” Thus highlighting our Libertarian Swine movement.
They are openly prejudice – Mostly seen in Xenophobia & Trans-phobia these days. However you see the bigotry in all walks of life. If you are prejudiced to people because of minor characteristics. Then you reveal that through your truth you reveal your swine side.
Sexual indiscretions – We live in a world where people who commit sexual acts of violence are not quite held accountable. I still don’t want to hear about it, even in the context of honesty! “You were more appealing in your human clothing Mr. Pig.”
They are just offensive – You may hear a swine laugh about something off color. Then go “So true, so true.” The truth & honesty are only weaponized when used to rob someone of their dignity. Doing this does not mean you practice any kind of civilized humor.
Honesty is your weapon – You use it for manipulation or to demean someone’s overall wellness. This is also the symptoms of being human swine. You think you can use honesty to alter the behaviors of others. However, honesty is always used in the wrong context when you use it to control someone and make them unhappy.
Honesty is a contextual value. If you are swine then it isn’t one of your valuable traits. You should not expect positive social awards for your honesty. You should expect public ridicule for it. Unfortunately moral Philosophy is no longer mainstream but it ought to be. Many of our approaches to life are now arbitrary and our values meaningless. I would much prefer the mechanisms of social civility to the arbitrary weaponized honesty.
We will be exposing Jamie Macari for the Swine he has become moving forward. If we are to head towards civilized society we must punish the swine. Jamie Macari is 100% religious, sexist & ablest swine. We will expose him and open him to ridicule.
Ashton Deroy writes: Belleville Ontario & Quinte West has a massive problem with Sexism. This isn’t a fact I need to back with stats, because it is just innate common knowledge from within the community. Sexual harassment in the workplace isn’t so much a rarity here as it is a common occurrence from within the workplace. In my Sustainability proposal I did outline how Sexist behavior isn’t so much being addressed in the community. As much as it is being embraced as a regular part of the work culture in Hawkin’s Cheesies. However it is not an exclusive issue to this company.
At Hinduja Global Services I witnessed my friend to be forced through arranged seating to be sat near a man who was not only a drug dealer! He was also trying to harass her for a pair of her panties. This is unacceptable! This should have never been allowed. Maybe if Hinduja Global Services in Belleville Ontario can’t commit to addressing sexism in the workplace they should lose the privilege to assign seating.
I am now committed to calling out sexism. To start because this will be a radical shift for the culture of Bay of Quinte as well as Belleville Ontario. I am going to call out in the most radical fashion imaginable! I might be a pain in the neck about it, but it is going to happen. It is time to recognize this is a United Nations Sustainability commitment and I don’t consider changing sexist culture as a matter of free speech, I consider this a human rights issue!
Not only sexism, but if I see Transphobia going forward. I am going to react! It is time Transgender people feel safer in our communities. Yet we continue to enforce culture of misgendering, back talking & bullying in our workplaces, charities & communities. If our municipal politicians are not going to address this. I will address these issues! I am seeing a lot of consistency with my opinions on the Federal level, but not provincially & not municipally & it is time for that to change.
Commitment to call out racism. The reason I haven’t finished this blog is that I was still attending a college within Belleville Ontario that has a rather racist reputation. I am talking about Loyalist College. A place where there majority of people alienate our East Indian students. I am tired of aiding in environments where these potentially new Canadians feel less included & unwelcome. Personally anyone who comes to Canada to develop a skill & work is welcome in my books & I will no longer leave room for people to say otherwise.
That picture is linked to a Google review link which widely associates Loyalist College with racism. It is something the college must work on if they are going to continue to be an attractive option for International students.
This is a personal commitment I will continue to use in my educational, professional and leisure pursuits. I will be on social media & out about connecting with marginalized members of the community and talking to them about their concerns. Then I will come to this high traffic Independent Belleville website & I will start giving the real news of the people of progressing these problems. Through my tag research & website statistics, I have learned I have a presence in this community. This is a presence I fully intend to use for the better.
Commitment on abortion: This will continue to be an political topic I support not reopening. I will strive to censor pro-abortion groups or defame people associated with these groups. This is a division I will not compromise on! It is women of my income level who require unrestricted access to these services. Not the wealthy moralistic controlling members of society who are oppressing in my class & whom I continue to loathe!
Instagram Statement: Call out #Sexism -It is apart of our Sustainability pact with the United Nations. – #BayofQuinte & #BellevilleOntario can not continue #Sexist culture – It is time to change sexism & sexual harrassment in the workplace. Much like I saw working at #HawkinsCheesies , #hindujaglobalservices , #Spdata , #Concentrix
