Because it will probably eventually be tied to a social credit system. If you value truth and human decency, then you're screwed in a world where telling the truth becomes/is a crime.

Obviously a bad thing.

 

If the job market has been destroyed by the Covid hoax and there are no jobs to apply for if you're unemployed then how do you get approved for a basic income to survive ?? The answer of course is you'll get your basic income by doing exactly what the system tell you to do - first it will be mandatory vaccines and after that it will be mandatory microchips.

Don't want a vaccine or microchip implanted into your brain ?? No problem !!! You're free to choose but if you say no your income will be taken away and you'll starve to death.

Human beings are extremely insincere, give them an inch and they will take by force a mile and kill you for it.

It is not very common that you hear somebody say that you should work for anything you have, and that nothing at all is for free.

And that society should be made in this image.

As soon as you start to give things for free ... where do you get them from?  You take by force from people's bank accounts things that do not belong to you and give them to whoever.

This is evil.

 

How many heroin addicts do you allow in the classroom?  one or two or a few?  Not too many?
The answer is zero.
Because once you open the door, others will follow, and it demoralises the entire classroom.

 

They are fundamental and universal principles.

 

Once you start to steal from people by force, you devalue their work, and then people start to avoid paying "tax" and corruption begins, everywhere.   And then it's violence, everyone lying cheating and stealing.

 

But ... given the low state of human consciousness, such things are inevitable.

And so the only choice you have is whether you will take care of yourself, work for yourself, and try to be honest ... all along without being naive.  It's not very easy.

 

Politicians talk about great reset and great peace and ... whatever.  They don't talk about how they are going to thieve from everyone to make this happen, all the while creating laws to facilitate it ... and if people don't like theft or forced immigration then the education system will change so that your children are taught to betray their own blood.

What an insane world, full of evil people.

The people who run big companies have always had this dream:

 

"Our workers should be mindless automatons who do exactly as they are told, work themselves to exhaustion and never ask for anything in return."

 

Their solution:

 

"Why employ needy sacks of meat with emotions who cause problems when Robots can do the same job faster on a rolling 24 hour basis without ever needing anything more than electricity and occasional maintenance and repair?"

 

This creates a PR problem:

 

"Automation is going to leave hundreds of millions of people unemployed. This can cause anything from continuous bad press to the destruction of political parties to a full blown uprising that would likely unseat us as well."

 

Solution:

 

"We will look less heartless if we pay those who are rendered unemployed for life a small basic salary which at least keeps them fed and alive."

 

But the problem of a societal backlash remains:

 

"Continuous and invasive surveillance of the entire populace should allow us to identify those people who might write and orate and organize against us. These people can then be smeared,  harrassed, censored, intimidated, imprisoned or otherwise incapacitated."

 

Social credit:

 

"A social credit system would give us a potent button with which we can simply turn any would-be troublemakers off at will. Once used successfully and without mercy against the strongest and loudest of them, few will take the risk of even criticizing the new order publicly."

 

The mainstream media:

 

"Mainstream media must continuously repeat the falsehood that the specific technological changes we are making to the world are an inevitable result of technology advancing. It must look like such progress is simply natural, and that there are no decisionmakers whatsoever involved in anything that happens or changes."

'They' would own you. Any voicing of dissent or act of non-compliance would see you, at best, having all privileges (i.e. the means to survive) withdrawn. The likelihood is that at that stage of the game, the dominance will be so complete it will be more like full on communistic, Orwellian re-education for you. It must be resisted under any and all circumstances.

A good thing?

 

I do not yet have enough information to offer my own opinion.

 

Please educate me :)

 

It could be a good thing, if it were offered with no strings attached. However, it definitely will not be offered with no strings attached. You will only get it if you comply to a vast array of controls and expectations. In this way, it's definitely negative... unless you are the type of person who loves being a system slave... a dutiful arse licker.

Simply stated

What happens when there are more people in the cart than are pushing the cart?

 

For those who are on welfare....

You have no ability or Right to improve 

You are at the mercy of the controllers

 

Unfortunately the controllers do not possess any empathy for merciful compassion. 

 

The road is clear.... all they need is a mandate from the moronic masses

I am a supporter of a no-strings-attached UBI. Everybody should have access to the essentials for survival. That is a human right.


I have spent a lot of time out in the suburbs. A UBI is necessary because, for most people, there are no opportunities for them in the economy. Obviously, the system is, by design, there to screw you unless you conform (and are born into the right circumstances). I have a vision for an economy that is basically a free-market but there should be a no-strings-attached UBI for those who need to find their feet, rebuild their lives, find out who they are, etc. There is more than enough "money" to do this, it is just not made available. A no-strings-attached UBI is a no-brainer. If you can't see that, you're an idiot.

 

People will be productive when they feel loved, appreciated, respected -- and they know what they are about.
