Advocates from all sides from Martin Luther King to libertarian Milton Friedman have called for some kind of basic income. It's an issue upon which conservatives and liberals often agree. Think about it. An end to poverty. Isn't that what so many of us want? It can be done, and the experts say it makes sense economically. It's far better than the
welfare state that presently exists
and it would save money.
People will say, if you do that the recipients will just sit around and drink and be merry. A few people would do that, yes. But most people want fulfilled lives. They want a way to pursue their aspirations and dreams for themselves and to contribute to making a better world. Most people would just not be satisfied with an income supplying only the basic essentials. But without the basic essentials some people are hurting and hurting really badly. And
for those with children, well, of course, the
children suffer the consequenes of
their parent's hardships.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, consider posting a message on your webpage. Think about mentioning it on your blog. Tell your friends and neighbors.
Let's broadcast this message to the world and put
an end to all suffering caused by
a lack of basic income.
