Look at the money required. UBI in theory is nice, everyone gets a safety net. It isnt feasible or possible to pay that kind of money. Where will it come from?Dunno. I think a real safety net meant for its intended purpose would literally drive innovation through the roof. You either have faith in humanity or not. UBI vote yes.
Not the bullshit dole or not let's hide behind the masks and this covid horse sh*t.
I'm up for a real debate. Let's go. UBI vs Survival of the fittest. Take your positions and society votes. Debate away.
But one thing we need to agree on is humanity wins.
So UBI and dignity vs US style gun fight
The reality is it just isnt possible for everyone to have a safety net. That isnt fair, i dont even agree thats how it should be, it isnt. BUT thats life/reality.
UBI will require Amazon, Google, FB and these places actually paying tax. Thats where the money will come from. Good luck getting it, it just wont happen. Further to this, they employ so many people, their argument is they've done their bit.
Why work if you dont need to? Innovation will go backwards for that reason, you cant just give money. People need to earn things. Human nature
As for having faith in humanity, LOL, where have you been this year? How could you possibly have that? Majority of people in favour of shutting civilisation, preventing low income households from earning an income. The same ******* idiots who panic buy toilet paper then complain at "all the people at the shops" as if they were allowed out but not the others. So no, safe to say humanity did its dash with me this year
