I don't mind the concept of a universal basic income, but ONLY if you have to do something for it. Pick up trash, volunteer at a shelter, etc, there are too many lazy ass people in this country always looking for a handout. Even if it is minimal, 4 hours a week, it must be tied to some type of contribution to society. It would take only a month before the gibmedats would not be happy with whatever the sum was, it would not be enough and they would immediately cry racism or sexism, or whateverism at the amount. You all know it to be true.
