The only people who think that Finland’s UBI experiment has any value, are the ideologues who dreamed it up in the first place. Technocrats from Big Tech companies are pushing UBI around the world as a say to mollify displaced workers who have been pushed out of the workforce by robots.
Universal Basic Income
The concept of UBI is as fantastical as the notion that it’s OK to create a new class of unemployables by displacing them with robotic counterparts. It isn’t OK, and it will create a horrific Scientific Dictatorship. However, this is the mind of a Technocrat and the goal of Technocracy. Calls for UBI will not go away until people begin to confront these issues head-on.
The very same Technocrats inventing invasive technology to obsolete humans are calling for Universal Basic Income to keep the ‘Unemployables’ docile. In fact, however, UBI amounts to low-income slavery from which there is no escape.
Sam Altman ran an experiment to give 200 people a basic income, to see what they would do with it; now he wants government to give free money to all poor people. This meme is gathering steam around the world, being pushed the hardest by billionaires. These are the same billionaires who will exploit everyone in their path while avoiding taxes at all costs.
Branson visited The Elders, a small and self-appointed group of Technocrats that includes four members of the Trilateral Commission. The Elders are instrumental in the genesis of UBI. Keep in mind that the Trilateral Commission fed Agenda 21/Sustainable Development to the United Nations in 1992 as Agenda 21. The UN and others credit Gro Harlem Brundtland as the creator of Agenda 21; she is a member of The Elders and also a member of the Trilateral Commission.
Fake history and fake facts are underpinning the argument for UBI, much like the pseudo-science of global warming. To state that UBI “starts to add up to a very significant portion of the GDP,” is woefully ignorant of economic terminology and meaning. GDP stands for “Gross Domestic Product”, whereas UBI is a government handout created out of thin air from taxpayer money.
Mark Zuckerberg is very willing to spend taxpayer money, but has little interest in parting with his own fortune. His lust for UBI reveals Zuckerberg’s immaturity and naïveté. UBI is tantamount to slavery for the ‘unemployable”class from which there will be no escape.
Thanks to the global elite and Technocrat leadership, the whole world is stampeding toward some form of Universal Basic Income, or UBI. This is the response to their creating a new class in society called “the unemployable.” It is lost on these people that UBI will create a new class of slavery unlike any seen before, and even more brutal.
Mark Zuckerberg is a consummate Technocrat and societal engineer, and he is telling the Harvard class of ’17 that Universal Basic Income is the wave of the future. Will Zuckerberg drop his gargantuan billions and live with all the ‘little people’? Not a chance.
The author, Yuval Noah Harari, is a atheist who thinks he can divine the future. This article might raise your blood pressure, but you need to read this from his own pen. On the other hand, Harari also speaks for the global elite on futuristic visions.
