@amydentata years ago I translated an interview with one of Germany's richest people on UBI (which he is a strong proponent of, though more from a libertarian slant than a socialist one)
In it he brings up that whenever he talks about the subject people go "well but won't everyone just be lazy and not do ANYTHING" and said his response to that is always "would you?"
Which immediately murders that line of argument
@amydentata @outie I recently read this: https://medium.com/institute-for-the-future/universal-basic-assets-abb08ca2f0fc
Finally I don't have to be shy in my proposing a non-monetary universal basic *resource* income! XD :D
(I've always thought UBI was just perpetuating the existing system of money, but everyone was so adamant about it I just kind of sheepishly went along. Now they're starting to agree :')
(I think a lot of people still want money, though. I wonder if/when they'll talk about resource economy)
