Ashton Deroy writes: It was Karl Marx who said, “Religion is the people’s opium.” I kind of had thought Secular lawmaking would be the future of modern Canadian Politics. However, there are definitely more than a few reasons for pause & reflection. Atheists have dominated the governance of a country before, it resulted in the annihilation of multi-culturalism, religious genocide & brutal Tyranny. It is called Communism!
In Canada, Quebec passed a secular law called known as Bill 21. Before this had been executed, Secular lawmaking had been one of those things I thought could revolutionize the way we look at governance. “Oh yeah”, it is revolutionary but for all the wrong reasons.” Religious oppression, cultural oppression & uniformity.
I realize with an approach of secular lawmaking, tyranny is inevitable. You can see it in these Communist Countries when the people stop worshipping their faiths, it creates a vacuum and the state fills that vacuum unexpectedly with Nationalism & state worship. You see this in Joseph Stalin’s 5-year plan of atheism from 1932 to 1937 in Soviet Russia. This lead to religious oppression, re-education, and imprisonment to people who held on firmly to their beliefs. One might argue with religion in a Nation we add a moral check & balance that we otherwise would not have.
Cultural oppression, in my own words I have said over & over again. You can not treat Uniformity as diversity. I started saying it in my last Hinduja Global Services blog where I said they make a gross negligent attempt to treat all their workers as a uniformed resource and not as people with individual needs who need to exist outside of the system. If that isn’t right in a company, you can bet it is all wrong for a country! Canada is a Pluralist country meaning if we all start looking the same in any kind of capacity. We are doing something very wrong as outlined by our Charter of Human Rights & Freedoms. This does include religious expression and I am fully against the oppression of these rights as someone who loves the charter & thanks it for my ability to exist outside of the marginalized areas of society.
The last part is about uniformity. Now I want to stop talking as a political commentary here and start talking like someone with an appreciation of arts & culture. Religion has inspired clothing & art . It makes our society reflect not just our relentless logical atheists but also the imaginative artists, Christian Philosophers & even our Sihk allies. The problem is this war on religion is also apart of the war on Families & their culture I had previously discussed. Forced uniformity is also a key part of our current Mental Health Emergency I believe all of North America should be collaborating on. We have stripped away our traditions, identities, & beliefs as practicality! Yet we wonder why we are all miserable? In Belleville I heard a man at Tim Hortons say people in Turbans should not be allowed to vote. It gave me a feeling of such intense anger! This is not Canada and say that racist statement is not Canadian!
At the end of the day, Bill 21 in Quebec is a form of cultural destruction. Quebec has created a national identity and has decided that people in certain professions have no choice but to participate. I believe the fact that Secularism is a big part of Communism should not be so carefully glossed over. It should give us pause & we should question if this is a gradual step in the direction of somewhere we do not want to go. Atheism as enforced by the law kills culture.
The Village says on Facebook as quoted,
“Without change to the current Commercial Rent Assistance program, we will sadly lose many LGBTQ+ businesses that are vital to our community. Email Bill Morneau (Bill.Morneau@parl.gc.ca), FordNation (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Suze Morrison (SMorrison-QP@ndp.on.ca) that CECRA needs to be changed to better support small businesses.
It Takes a Village to Save The Village.”
“Small businesses in Canada are extremely important to the local economy. All across this country small businesses are working hard to stay alive. Many of us will have even more struggles to get reopened in the future. Bars and other gathering spots will be some of the last to be able to restart. We need help! The other government programs have had issues. Many of them have been corrected. I ask today that the Provincial and Federal government step up and fix the CECRA program so it will work for the commercial tenants. The Federal government has pwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwut the money aside; give tenants some way to access this help if the landlord won’t. Small businesses are the backbone of this country.” – Christopher Hudspeth, Owner of Pegasus On Church and Chair of the Church Wellesley Business Improvement Area.”

Hey guys, so I have been hearing about the benefits of Content scheduling as well as Hootesuite since my first year of college ever. I personally am not thrilled about the standardization of the practice from a U/X experience. Where we think we’ve found efficiency as Marketers? We may of actually just found lamely executed shortcuts.
I am an anti-Marketer but a firm believer in interpersonal sales & service.
Here are the problems with trying to use the standardized approach to content creation and content promotion:
- Lost in the crowd of Notifications – I Subscribe to a lot of content creators on YouTube. Around 11:00a.m. Thursday the 14th of May. My phone was lit up with notifications over uploads of scheduled posts. Creatively speaking, It sends the user in 100 different YouTube directions with no focus. Mostly I end up clearing my notifications because it comes at me like hot spam.
- It makes the content seem meaningless – Personal curation of content is an underrated concept. This blog is doing it’s best because we manage personal relationships with our readers, clients & stakeholders.
- The same failure of TV is a failure of the web – Standardized scheduling for content will be the sure way to become ignored as overly corporate. I personally prefer a dignified marketing & sales approach with engaging and interpersonal content management strategies. A lot of the time when writing a blog I ask myself. What do my readers care about? Radio hosts use the same logic for engaging radio shows. What do our listeners care about? How can we meet them where they are. Rather than make communication convenient for us the content creator.
