Today we have a topic we have an article that we're gonna talk about /okay/ and it's called universal basic income now of course on Saturday the topics are a little bit heavy sometimes a little bit serious
Have you heard of this Denny?
yeah /okay/ it's been around for a while now
every generation__ so a politician tries to get this started and the idea is that even without working everyone who's an adult should get a salary from the government. it's the basic supply so and
a lot of people would say we're being communist if you're using this
and other people say that would make people lazy so if every one got money for not doing anything, then why would they even work?
and so these are some arguments against it
but the idea is that everyone should get something from the government for being a citizen.
at least that's how I understand universal basic income
but a lot of different politicians try to change the definition because they know that the original definition won't work , people don't want universal basic income because they think that it's just too much money for the government to spend.
well that is true. I mean. Imagine you've got a population of millions or billions and to pay everyone a certain monthly income
I cannot even imagine what that means
but at the same time it's something interesting to think about
it's an idea and it's true but it... well, as time goes on.. the gap between the rich and the poor become so much wider that, you know, we have so much technology.
we have so much food but there are so many people who are still hungry and still don't have jobs. so it's a social issue / yes it is/
