MattysModernLife: Universal Basic Income


Editor’s note: MattysModernLife has produced another excellent video on economics, this time explaining the ins and outs of Universal Basic Income. The final verdict is that it is another poorly thought out socialist pipe dream giving giving free money to people using other people’s money. Although it would simplify the welfare system, it would still add more to a government’s annual deficit, and total national debt.

It’s your XYZ.

  • Free money ???
    Gibsmedats free money ! Gibsmedats now !

    The UBI can be denominated in Zuckers, named after that Fapbook, dead-eyed CIA smurf, Zuckerburger.
    Another step towards the NWO.
    Hmmmm, just need to reduce world population to around 600 million serfs to look after the Elites. They can be paid a few Zuckers,but no penalty rates.
    Rise of the Robots ! Brave New World !
    As long as I gets my freebie Zuckers and Soma.
    Soma, to control the masses…..

    “there is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon…”

    Just the name of “UBI” puts me right off. It is reminiscent of conditions in [an existing Communist country] where there is a basic food allowance.

    Of course, if you fall foul of The Party you might find yourself starving to death. Ditto if for whatever reason rations aren’t delivered to the co-op each week but become the same amount of rations delivered fortnightly or monthly or …. never ….

    Of course, one can travel to another region to look for food. If one has a travel permit. Which one won’t. Nor will that other region have any more food than that region left behind.

    Leave the country? Ha!

    One can try crossing the river and into [another existing Communist country]. Best not to get caught by guards on either side of the border.

    Leaving the country to find food is insulting and treacherous, don’t you know? Beatings, rather invasive searches of all body cavities, and imprisonment will follow.

    Of course, you might get fed in prison. Unless of course you’ve been executed, in which case it’s a moot point.

    Even so, hard labour and short rations and repeated physical & sexual assaults can tend to diminish one’s joie de vivre.

    If one is fortunate, one will be beaten to death. Or escape. If one is unfortunate one will be beaten until one is permanently crippled and unable to unbend one’s spine. One will also be incontinent, permanently, from every cavity which was previously searched. One might or might not end up with “a black gaping hole where her vagina should have been”.

    If one is “fortunate”, one manages to escape. Perhaps ultimately to France, Canada, or Australia.

    I can only speculate on how fortunate one actually feels to leave the living hell of a Communist country, only to be surrounded by people hell bent on making your new home a Communist country…

    • Illinois has no money to even have new Traffic Citation books printed for their cops.
      Illinois is akin to Venezuela, being sucked down the fiscal plughole. Broke !
      Democrat California can’t be too far behind.
      Really quite extraordinary.
      I feel sorry for all those Americans whose Pension Plans have evaporated and they are left with nothing………
      The US is shaping towards social upheaval and Civil War II.

        And also CT, NJ, NY, MA, RI, KY (together with CA, as you mentioned).

        I don’t much like the chances for Victorzuela if the state government doesn’t change. It’s no good people thinking that they will teach the Libs a lesson by getting Labor in and then starting over in a few years’ time. This lot are power mad, well funded from somewhere, and we don’t have lots of election cycles to work this out. They are going to try to hold on to.power like vicious harpies and continue to hike taxes so they can cream off funds for their present and future lifestyles. We need to get rid of them before they become flesh eating super bugs. DON’T attach me a horrible graphic!!

        I’d prefer “aindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, brown paper packages tied up with string …. “

        • Deplorable Steve

          ‘Aindrops’, Mrs Dwyer?

          • Karen Dwyer

            Well you know, it’s been so cold and wet lately that I’ve lost my enthusiasm for raindrops a “leetle” bit….

            But I’ve gone back and edited just so I don’t appear iggnorrent.

    UBI sounds like a sexually transmitted disease.
