An Argument Against Universal Basic Income

I finally found someone with a libertarian argument against a universal basic income. Good job. It's not that I don't agree with him, but I feel UBI is inevitable down the road when robotics and artificial intelligence take over most jobs. There would be no other way to live.

Fred, what you imply is that a battle will take place, a big one, where as AI is implemented more, those left working will be that much more pissed off that orhets are getting "free income".......free handouts.......personally, depopulation en masse.......lots of blood on the streets.

A UBI means that everyone gets a "free income".

If you have skills/abilities that the economy values get something extra.

UBI might not be the ultimate solution we'll need once a large number of jobs permanently disappear. It's just the best solution we have now.

Feel free to come up with a better idea.

I love how Henchman takes a simple peaceful idea and turns it into a bloodbath. Please, do seek help.

Simply theorizing that a person who works will also get the same UBI as an unemployed humanoid and tolerate the inequality of the ubi subsidy is typical 2 Party System supporters' wishful thinking.....the worker still recognizes that in one hand, ubi is given without labor in return, while in the other hand, ubi is given to the worker.......now, unless ubi is on a sliding subsidy scale, not much else to breakdown at this point except that ubi would fail miserably.

Politics aint peaceful, ubi is politics.

Insinuating something as anonymous does about "seeking help" is plane propaganda, not peaceful words.

Hipocrite Anonymous should practice what it preaches, as gospel.

HOJ critiques as the devil's advocate in politics, not supposed to please the senses of everyone........

Now, for a bloody back strap steak for breakfast, and no flap from Anonymous is allowed without heavy salt seasoning.

"A basic income (also called unconditional basic income, Citizen's Income, basic income guarantee, universal basic income or universal demogrant[2]) is a form of social security[3] in which all citizens or residents of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money, either from a government or some other public institution, in addition to any income received from elsewhere.

An unconditional income transfer of less than the poverty line is sometimes referred to as a partial basic income."


That's the definition of UBI. It means what it means.

"HOJ critiques as the devil's advocate in politics"

No, a devil's advocate argument expresses a contentious opinion in order to provoke debate or test the strength of the opposing arguments. What HOJ does is toss shit against the wall just to make a splatter.

Anonymous, foaming at the mouth again after getting butt rabies that causes anonymous to rant shit and blow bubbles concurrently.
