It is time to admit something. I don’t think I can work after the Pandemic. As a result of sitting in Safe Beds having Seizure every night since I got here. I am realizing that working is no longer in the cards for me.
Since the Pandemic I have been denied my Human Rights. I have been denied access to healthcare, I have been denied access to affordable housing and I have been denied the basic human compassion one needs to survive. I am mentally scarred & physically worn out. I don’t see any circumstances where I can return to regular work.
To conclude, I guess my Dad is getting what he wants. I am admitting now from this point forward I am too disabled to work. I can’t control my Seizures, I can’t control my pain and I can’t control my temperament anymore. You win Randy Deroy. Your kids are officially all going handicapped.
I kept hoping at some point everyone would shut up and let me do my own thing. However, they just had to autism aware a brain injury victim. So here is the truth. I have reported information on every single parent and relative that has probably made it’s way to social services. Time to explain myself after all of this time.
Why did I do it? What has been happening to give me so much anxiety?
Over emphasis on independence – They are forcing morons in to resiliency. Even me with my ability to run in to walls over & over again. They don’t get it… People not capable of independence should not be independent. Not everyone can be rehabilitated for independence. That doesn’t mean they can’t work or be a functional member of society.
Everything can be solved through psychology – No… Your psychology is wrong. Also performing exercises of emotional burden like Kimberly Hill Richardson, Mary McGraw and Nicole Hill. I did not approve of this. I disagreed with this entirely.
Not recognizing someone’s moral authority – Just because someone is different, gender non-conforming or maybe weird. They feel they have the right to denounce it to enforce social normalcy. Then they push people in to these impossible moral arguments rather than take responsibility for improving their kids. The term is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and it is not flattering how they got about it. I just fixate on birthdays & dying my hair blonde for brain injuries.
It is easy to make claims like…. “Stop lying!” response “I HAVE TO! You are a concern to my safety.” “Be a descent human being!” Response “I don’t want to because I don’t like who I am around!” “Go on ODSP” response “You are forcing harmful independence that could risk my social norms.” Besides that we all know ODSP is often abused as a lifetime system for people who can work… Rather than something for an emergency. Next time I get help with wages. I will need it 100% . I have Autism + Concussion and I have been wrecking my own life. I can own up to wrecking my own life. I just want my family to stop owning up to that and own up to their mistakes around me. If not we can keep this chaotic game going forever. I give 0 shits about a family of dumbass ideological psychotics.
Ashton Deroy writes: I have been talking about Cooperatives. A Business model I seriously admire and one that I believe can truly reduce poverty. It wouldn’t be completely honest though if I didn’t talk about the pitfalls for a Socially democratic collective. The truth is I have some negative experiences for the model of Social Democracy that I stand up for so much.

Let’s go back to 2018 when I was removed from Seneca Pride. I won’t even be denied that I deserved it. Despite the fact, it was clear to many observers that the “Mean Girls” had taken over the Pride group. What did I learn from this experience though?
Well, I have 3 ways to get past deadlocks in Social Democracy:
Hold Procedural votes – We all liked the idea of hold Social democratic votes over Facebook in our Seneca Pride group. There may have been student government regulations that prevented this process. I was also in favor of raised hand voting from within the group. Just as long as we got the votes done. Which is the case of Seneca Pride… We did not. It is worth noting the real reason I took Politics at Seneca College as a General Education course was to better manage the Social Democracy happening from within this group. The key to procedural votes 1. Setting firm dates. 2. Setting a firm process. 3. Allowing members to abstain by choice or not showing up.
Allow authoritative decision making – Not everything can be decided by vote. Sometimes you have to trust an authority on the subject matter. Sometimes choices aren’t democratic. Sometimes decisions should be made by Utilitarian principles, expertise, or other moral principles. I often discouraged anti-police sentiment from within Seneca Pride. This was because I felt morally obligated to ensure the health & safety of Seneca Pride members. Many of whom were going to seek permanent residence within Canada. I believe it would be easier for them to integrate permanently as comrades if they were to buy into the Commonwealth phrase of “Peace, Order and Good Government.” . I was also adamant that OPP from within Toronto only be blamed for actions committed by them. Not action committed by American authorities. Despite the fact, Black Lives Matters had an agenda of promoting a borderless approach to civil rights issues from within our group. Despite our opposition, this would be a group I grew to admire for their grassroots civil rights movement.
Don’t be afraid of hurting feelings – Even in a democracy, we can not reach a Utopia of everyone being happy. I like to say Even Soviet Russia had Conservatives. Referring to farmers who protected Private Property in agriculture-related to the New Economic Plan of Lenin. Sometimes the practical decisions can leave people feeling a bit disenchanted.
“The time at our disposal is limited…. The material means of achieving ends are limited. We have been turned out of Paradise….” Lionel Robbins. I feel like that quote is the perfect note to end in when we talk about Social Democracy. Whether we like it or not we have to be practical in our approach to a more modern collective. Well and isn’t that just a bummer?
A One-Day Conference in Memory of Erik Olin Wright. Erik Olin Wright spent the last years of his life thinking about ways to challenge and transform capitalist societies. He distilled his thinking in a book, How to Be an Anti-Capitalist in the 21st Century (Verso, 2019). The symposium is designed to launch a debate about the strengths and weaknesses of Wright’s approach. We seek to both honor our colleague’s memory and assure that his ideas become part of current discussions of socialism and socialist strategy.
The event will consist of three panels during the day and an evening session that will include tributes to Wright and a keynote by his friend, Ira Katznelson. Full program: http://www.capitalismstudies.org/anti… This event is co-sponsored by the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies and the journal, Politics & Society.
