We already have our own form of UBI: Patreon.com/kurzgesagt – without it we would not be able to do what we do. It makes us independent. The freedom it gives us is the reason we can work on every video until it is truly finished. Thank you so much for your support. <3
Perhaps they should do the Ubi experiment on opinion and action of kids because the prediction might be wrong and us kids might waste all money
So in other words,UBI creates more alcohlics,I'd have to give it a pass.
"Not created by magic or printers" you need to do some research on modern banking; the constant abuse of fractional reserve banking means the vast majority of our currency was magicked into existence.
Cut welfare, cut UBI. Get a job. Pay your bills. The end.
i have an idea how to make things go faster than light, the sound waves to be exact, we know that the denser material the sound wave in it is traveling faster so for example why almost infinitely dense objects like black hole or neutron stars can't make sound wave to go through it faster then light?
go tell that to trump
The UBI would kill jobs that pay near the UBI line (i.e. near the poverty line). This itself would reduce the poverty line, and the UBI itself. Repeat
Do more space plis
I live in a city. There's an entire class of people that live on the dole and literally spend every day sitting around drinking and getting high. I see them day after day year after year. This is so wildly naive and idiotic it hurts....It's like you've never been outside
I guess it's not even that hard to answer. Here in Germany the amount of homless people got twice as high as two years ago.
Our welfare program is perfectly deacribed by you: Gettin welfare is almost better than workin, on the other Hand you are forced to take any job so they dont stop paying your welfare.
Means: You want to find something you like, you want to study, you need money to Start something then go and fuck yourself, Do as we tell or your rent wont be paid any more.
That has nothing to Do with freedom. Life is short, it shoudnt be wasted, it shoudnt be stressful, it shoudnt be a fight. UBI would help a lot without harming someone. And Even without UBI: Fucking taxes for really rich people needa be a lot higher. You in the US got the biggest gap between rich and poor. Yeah, two options why this is: A lot of Americans are lazy or stupid OR our friggin system just works like this, it creates a gap. Guess it's not even that hard to answer, even without being a communist. Pro tip: Thinking doesnt hurt.
They have replaced fast food and retail workers with completely un-educated and incompetent people already. If welfare was suddenly raised to the level of minimum wage with no requirements (what this video is talking about), almost everyone working a minimum wage job would instantly stop working. It is hard enough to pay the welfare for the actually disabled + the millions of lazy jerks who take it wrongfully. No economy could afford to pay welfare to the entire lower-working class and turn them into non-working wards of the state.
9,000 dislikes, 9,000 bums who want free shit. Get a job bitches, job doesn’t pay enough? Get another one.
You don't help the poor by giving them free shit. That's been known for a long time. Give a man a fish, you end up wiping his arse.
>earn 20k more a year
>early expenses increase by 20k
>taxes increase by 20k
We give money to the people and in order to stop any kind of inflation the state will just fix it.
Whoop dee fucking doo we just made comunism
I personally think it would attract too many parasites onto the wallets of the rich. Yes, most wouldn’t abuse the money given to them but even then people would be given money they didn’t have to work for. That also means that the money the middle and upper class work for the poor would get for free. It is still possible to get out of poverty without any more than an education, a job opening and determination. Even in America a scholarship can be earned with good grades and a high SAT score. There are also grant options like the FAFSA and loans to cover costs. Another problem with poverty is children. The minimum wage is enough for a small apartment, food and utilities. The more cost effective way to solve all of this is education. This gives better job opportunities and it ensures that people still have to work for a good life
Suppose it will free up the job market, when human nature kicks in and nobody feels like getting up for work anymore. Anything that's given away for free becomes worthless. Strange concept, i know.
