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.
Universal Basic Income
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.
UBI is a basic tenet of historic Technocracy, except that it was specified as an energy-based currency. However, if UBI is implemented, it can be converted to energy currency in a heartbeat, and nobody would have anything to say about it.
Istvan ran for President as the Transhuman Party Candidate; now he is running for governor in California as a Libertarian candidate. He is calling for Universal Basic Income for everyone.
Universal Basic Income is a mega-trend outcome of the Fourth Industrial Revolution where robots replace humans en-masse. Technocracy’s city-state concept will reduce the value of human labor to near-zero, requiring government support for all. This kind of subsistence living is tantamount to slavery.
UBI trials are being conducted in the U.S., Canada, Iceland and Brazil, while the global elite hold study groups. This is the downhill slide into Technocracy, and TN predicts that the ultimate global currency will be based on energy.
As technology displaces human employment, a universal basic income will replace all forms of welfare and unemployment benefits. This is also a key concept in historic Technocracy, where energy credits would be distributed equally to all citizens.
