Imagine you are a man. Not a civilized man but a pseudo savage with no talent. You have no job. Yet somehow you feel better than immigrants that land in Canada. My parents often say “Everyone is entitled to their opinions.” My response, “A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.” If that is too crude you may want to try this wrestling quote by Jerry Lawler “Keep your words sweet because you may have to eat them later.” I am happy to say I am highly educated and can use deliberation to just confuse the crap out of right-wingers with no formal education. “If you come to my house and eat at my table you will be civil and treat people with the egalitarian respect they deserve!”
f you plan a #welfarestate but don’t plan a #Workers State. Then you only end up with a strong welfare state. That is what is happening to #belleville & #QuinteWest.
#Liberal style #Socialism should be the Social Democratic theory of Economic Expansion. How do we achieve meeting the needs? While also incorporating a model of working to prosperity.
The fridge & food metaphor: I am using this to explain how uncontrolled rent & rising costs to live are interdependent to a work to prosperity Economic model. If the work for the Prosperity model dies, then with it dies the culture of ambitious workers. You just have people concerned with owning the means of production. Nobody will want to support it. Think of it as highly volatile and overly idealistic capitalism.
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.
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.
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?
I am going to expose something not so secret. I buy Logo generated logos!
I am not a graphic designer nor would I ever pretend to be one. I am not that type of artist. Now I used Wix logo maker but here is what makes my logo personal. The eagle represents a piece of artwork my Papa Dick had that he passed on to his son Rick. I also like the eagle. I think it is a positive resemblance to the enduring spirit of Canadian Libertarian values. It is also tied into our family culture. We ( Kyle, Ashley, Kaylib & Ashton Deroy) identify our Family culture as a French & indigenous mix.
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.
New York Times posted an article by Kimball Allen titled my Mormon family loved until I came out. I figured that not to detract from his story that I would tell my story as well. Also, to help me come to terms with some mutual prejudices I have faced with more Conservative communities as a devoted Religious Socialist. The truth is I would say I am related to two types of families. One that is very Libertarian on my father’s side & another that is much more Conservative on my mother’s side.
Honestly, I am so happy someone just took the time to engage me on a topic I am so passionate about and that is Universal Basic Income. Now I want to let my audience know that I am more of a Labour style Socialist. I am a Liberal Socialist after all. Here is what someone wrote to me about Universal Basic Income.
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.
