7 ways from Democracy to Dictatorship

“A bit of Autistic decision making.”

I have my faith, my moral system, and one hell of a Market Research brain. I will share who I am networking with out of my Social Media Marketing / Market Research adaptation of Socialism. However, I don’t think I am defined by the party. I am defined by my faith and ideology.

Somewhat this website has a cliche radical left history. However, we are done being mad at Conservatives out of teenage rebellion. We need to be left and also love grandma too. Summary of the last election: No one got what they wanted and everyone was uncomfortable with the behavior of the establishment. It divided us on sexuality, race & the environment. Let’s try for some more fluid thinking or the conversation will continue to surprise you.

Duncan Armstrong a case for Progressive reform

Writer’s Bias: Ashton Deroy is Wicca, 26, A community College graduate & Autistic.

September 8th 2018. This man has captured the Progressive imaginations of the city of Quinte West. What happened though? Why didn’t he win? Why didn’t Quinte West get the Progressive reform it Desperately needs!

Time for the truth from a History student at Trenton High with an Advertising Marketing Diploma from Loyalist College.

Purpose: The purpose of your campaign should of been sweeping progressive change.

Methods I propose for the next progressive: You should have jacked up a website with SEO features. Given yourself, a Megaphone of integrated marketing approaches to speak to EVERYONE! 

Resources I propose you use:

  • Vista Print – I use them to Print my own custom made T-Shirts. When I am not working my 9-5 in retail. (I do graphic designs because I graduated marketing.)
  • WordPress Business  
  • Social Media Advertising – I am sure the incredible family at Willow’s Publishing would be happy to walk anyone through a web-based strategy & a publishing strategy. (Pending their affiliations.) I have no clue.

Hell if it is to get a Social Reformer/lefty elected. I will pay for Marketing resources! Text me at 6138881958.

To: Kingston Ontario

We need to talk and it is a bit of an uncomfortable conversation to be having. I have Autism characterized by behaviors of ADHD. I put my kidneys through a lot when I am jogging 20K because I am too impatient to wait for a bus. I need a place to go to the bathroom for these issues. I know we are trying to prevent disease but I just feel this current climate poses an unfair challenge on my physical health.

I appreciate anything that can be done to make this issue easier for me. Thank you for taking the time to read about my concerns.

“Oh, this is the bad place.” Describing my personal hell. Discussing addiction.

Here is a challenge. Describe your personal hell in 200 words. Write it as an incentive to improve your life. What does hell look like for you? Email Ashtonderoy@gmail.com 

What would my personal hell look like? What are the features? What will tempt me to stay? How will I force myself to leave?

Features: My personal hell is one I describe with unhinged intoxication, smoke and alcohol & drugs everywhere. A total cultural ghetto.  There is no intellectual discussion, no exercise, and no real attempts at bettering one’s self.

Temptations to stay: The temptations to stay are based on some of the family states of mind and rituals.  My family has bleak and nihilistic opinions that I believe will re-buried me in addiction down the line. Imagine how hard it is to depart from your family culture and not only that but to demand a better and more progressive family culture!

How I will find my way out to a better life? For me, I had to find traditions and identity that appealed to me. For me when this is done? I will live in the tradition and culture of the intellectuals of left & socialist leanings.

“Don’t you know right from wrong!?” Anyone who was raised by parents who tried to raise them intellectuals has had this conversation multiple times. Some of us in Quinte West even began flipping the switch. Or just leaving Quinte West as a kind of morally deprived place with an out of control capitalism.

“Don’t you know that Capitalism isn’t the sum total of morality?”

I voted Democrat, because racism matters.
I voted Democrat because Racism matters. 

From a historical context. The abandonment of morality and ethics is associated with the worst atrocities in human history. Fredrick Nietzsche preached immorality. His ideas were adopted by the Nazis. It was said that the abandonment of morality is what leads to fascism. As I have stated my love for joining a Secular Pluralist culture is what lead to me dating a fascist. Someone to indulged perverse desires and saw morality as subjective and paradigm. Also, all religions somehow manifested as a mass adapted mental illness. (Beliefs straight out of failed secular states with radical systems.)  We have to find a way to trust protective structures like Political beliefs & religions. “Too much order, too much chaos.” Jordan Peterson.

So when another atheist comes up to me. Imagine hypothetically They just switched to atheism. The first thing I try to do with a new atheist is test if they are serious. Talk about issues grounded in reality with them. If they are serious about atheism we will find a way to talk about science, art, or politics. If they aren’t serious about atheism what you will get is nihilism and the abandonment of morality. That is something I will label every time because it is bad and it manifests into destructive & perverse behaviors. I will warn a friend that this is consistent with mental illness and I think they should deal with it.

The solution to chaos & malevolence is to confront it within reason. You want to use concepts of justice within reason and fairness.

This post will be censored with more ethical language in a bit*** . I do want it to break through though that I take Civility, mental health, and #SuicideAwareness seriously.

Since completing a Business Diploma while looking at Social & Sustainability issues. Then getting trained in CannSell and SmartServe as well as Suicide Prevention. I now believe I can be an ethical friend for someone.

So if you want to talk about mental health. We can talk. Just know I will behave ethically in Conversation. To some people this a calming thing. To have a friend behave a moral guide. I have had multiple moral guides as friends. I do believe it is something we can do for each other that helps to make the world a better place. 

Also, shout out to my Grandma. I think mental health dialogues were an idea I got from my Grandma Pat. Anyways I find moral friends to be a calming concept. I always mention my love for some of the Mormon culture in my family. I do think the Mormon religious culture was where I developed some of my Community & moral values. Even if some of it evolved with my academic life.

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.

3 pillars of asking your family to be more Progressive.

Ashton Deroy writes: It is okay to have a traditional family. Or even a Conservative family. I will never try to make that argument. I grew up with a father whose parenting style I’d describe as Libertarian and a mother’s parenting style that was a mix of traditional liberal and discipline for applying focus in learning the language.

Just like parents set the culture for you when you are younger. You have to sustain or provide a new culture for them as they get older. One of the things I am passionate about is my values for Socialism and equal society. The value associated with that just seems a more appropriate strategy for survival and maintaining a community-style culture. There is also a load of included Sustainability values which are a bonus in an era where we really want to care about this type of thing.

Pillar 1 – You have to come out. 

I don’t even necessarily mean come out of the closet but yes that helps to. You have to also say where your values are and be true to yourself. One of the things I had to draw a line in the sand with regards to other relatives related to me was respect for how my sister was dressing. I have Socialist feminist values in regard to dignity and standards for which you treat others. I had felt that wasn’t being respected or acknowledged.( My sister’s self esteem seemed obliterated. Not fun to see. She should speak of her feelings if she finds the urge. Or be private if she chooses.) I have an opinion as a “Progressive”.

Pillar 2 – Compromise and collaborate. 

I have a fairly flexible tolerance for humor. However, I will state when something passes the offensive or cringe place with me. I am autistic and I will admit it can contribute to being a bit over sensitive. However, my Dad and I can agree sometimes that we find Bob’s Burgers more watchable than Family Guy.

Pillar 3 – Set boundaries. 

Materialistic & possessive values really get on my nerves!

Yet for some reason, I had the patience to get a Business Diploma at Loyalist College. A school where everyone but I skipped the Sustainability &  Social Responsibility class.

After school though I say my highly progressive values from High School just cracked through a foggy glass. The Liberal Capitalist ideology associated with me thinking Donald Trump was cool, was being replaced by the ideological Social Democrat values that were truer to myself. If someone hits me with difficult materialistic value messages in Facebook messenger my brain goes into defensive mode, It says”we’ve been in that mindset and we hated it!”.

I have no issue with grind or sustainable upward economic mobility. Never think that about me. I do have a problem with the unadvanced ideals of the hacking beyond needing to work through Capitalism, socialism, or marriage. Working builds character & advances the community as a whole. It should only be avoided if absolutely necessary.

I have a big issue with a common example of an interpersonal moral/economic debate which is marrying for wealth debates. Hypothetical conversations on the pursuit of marriage as a means for achieving wealth. (I hate these conversations They are way too regressive.) I don’t encourage “Cinderella syndrome”. 2 reasons for that. I believe in equal collaborative marriages & I believe in long term dating.  (Sometimes it is okay if you don’t contribute to the wedding industry as a generation.)

My answer to the Argument:

I morally oppose the execution of marriage for the sole purpose of upward Economic mobility.  It conflicts with personal psychological values around intimacy. As well as contributes to poor cohabitation strategies. Ultimately it seems like people in these marriages for wealth arrangements have separate understandings of the marriage than their partner. It just seems wrong and unhealthy in so many ways to be greedy in pursuit of love.

With my message to friends and family.

If Materialistic conversations come up. Or valuing one’s self-based on material possessions. e.g. Owning a house, owning a car & buying a brand named fashion. I keep saying I am utilitarian I just want to manage resources for the common good. Honestly, that has been my self reason to say stuff like “stop smoking!” &  Learn College level math and Business functions. Unfortunately, if someone is too materialistic or too much of an economic Capitalist. We will likely culturally clash.

Conclusion.

If you read this. Or If you are a Millenial. Then you are likely a weird classical Libertarian or a Socialist to have any kind of interest in my page. Or you are a frequent reader, stoner or weirded out relative. I don’t care… Send me a message. Be civil please but send a message. I know some of our readers will always be closet progressives or Socialists/Social Reformists. Just know I hold you all in equal regard & value to the community. Our ideas of equality are a bit ridiculed but I have faith in a more progressive and advanced society.

 

 

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care. Re: Transgender Mtf Youth and the Sex Industry: Determinants and Risks

Bringing Compassion & cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care

Rudan Abstract

Ashton Deroy Writes: Christopher Rudan has written a summary on an issue regarding Male to Female you and the sex industry. Since I am a Business Diploma graduate with a diploma in Communications and I do side research in creating a functional Socialist society. I will suggest practical solutions to the problem described in Christopher’s Published abstract. I will do this in the format of a proposal rather than the format of another psychology paper. As someone whose education actually focused on Community Development and Sustainability, I can propose solutions to said problems.

Project Title: Bringing Compassion & Cultural Understanding to Public Transgender Health Care.

Project description:

I want to create reading materials such as pamphlets and online accessible reading materials to increase educational awareness for Transgender sex workers. We want to expand publicly accessible sexual health clinics much like you see with the health clinic in Quinte West called Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre. Also we want to circulate positive Transgender healthcare communication information & if possible resources to expand accessibility to transition in Canada.  We also want to distribute information directed at sex workers to encourage safe sex practices for prevention of the spread of Sexual infections & disease.

Tone: We want to change the communicative tone in materials to have a more inclusive & understanding tone while using a message that prevents the spread of contagious disease. We also want to increase the competence of healthcare professionals while aiding with the Transgender Community as a whole. This may involve sharing with them details about Transgender Social culture, health facts on best use for hormone replacement therapy & information on how Transgender women get caught in the world of sex work. Also as important is teaching Transgender women how to get out of the world of Sex work.

Mediums: Social media, Information Pamphlets, Educational speakers, Purchasing Sexuality and gender Study papers & a Website information hub.

Proposed first locations: Quinte West Ontario, Kingston Ontario & Belleville Ontario.

Duration: I would ask for a 2-year commitment to funding this as a community development project.

Project Cost:  $25,000 , Also consider hiring a project administrator for $30,000 per year salary.

3 Reasons Canada’s political system won’t maintain peace forever.

Left wings vs right wings

Ashton Deroy Writes: It is in my opinion that Canada’s democracy will not keep the peace forever. All civilizations eventually break down & all systems of government eventually fail. To quote Sean Illing “The elites have failed. These so-called liberal democratic institutions have failed. My vote has no influence on public policy. Why should I give a damn about preserving this system?” 

My Dad and his partner are non-voters. It is not hard to see why? I think at this time it has to be one of the most peaceful stances to take. Democracy is already like a verbal war that is to take place every time there is an election. The after math is protests, complaining & social smear tactics designed to scare swing voters to the other side. 

Why do I think the system is going to have a violent breakdown? No system breaks without stress & our system has a lot of it. From the fact that climate change is said to be happening much faster in Canada, to the ethical integrity being questioned by our current prime minister & lastly the down turn of public political discussion

Climate change is now becoming the issue that needs addressing in Canada. The Conservative response was recorded however & all they had to say was “Carbon Tax = Evil.” Liberals have begun to try & create change with taxation. I actually wrote MP Neil Ellis in the prior blog  . In regards to protecting our natural environment and this was his response.

Neil Ellis

What incites violence about this issue though? Well if you are a member of Generation X or a Millennial you might just feel that the older generations of Conservatives really screwed up your planet. Knowing that this will cost you your quality of life, air & drinking water. You might just be pissed off enough to punch a Conservative in the face! 

That is okay though because as much as young people & lefties might want to punch a Conservative. I am pretty sure the current right wing population is a mix of capitalists, white nationalists & powerful people who want to punch Liberals to. In the MSN article above it says “Canada’s top public servant says he is worried someone will be assassinated during the coming federal election campaign given the disturbing tenor of recent public discussion.” It is true, Trudeau is being described as a traitor and has long been described as a figure radical conservatives have wanted to kill. 

Now that I have described in detail the hatred that exists between two major political ideologies lets discuss social smear. Today a discussion in Politics between a left winger & right winger is really more like a chance to spew propaganda to recruit support. We know if we win over the swing voters, we have a better chance at getting a government that best represents our class of society. We are fighting in discussions & the objective of the fight is to gain temporary support of our peers. In some countries coercion is a classic way of winning the fight. 

“A number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” James Madison 

It just doesn’t seem like this democracy can keep the peace forever. A check mark in a box does nothing to keep society standing. In my political studies class I learned Jean Jacques rousseau called the process of voting consenting to the social contract of an election. I’d argue more that people are consenting to being apart of a certain tribe & where there are separate tribes there is war! This system can not & will not last forever because it really does nothing to promote co-existence, take care of people & promote a sustainable living model. Voting is a division, political parties are tribes & democracy is a war awaiting violence.
