Would like to hear your take on the Patriot Dividend (UBI)? Could this help mitigate homelessness? Be a bridge for those living paycheck to paycheck? Help others payoff debts: credit, healthcare, student loans? There are experiments going on in Stockton (CA) and according to Wired (mag): Finland, Ontario (Canada), Barcelona (Spain) and Scotland are all either doing a watered down version or have a proposal.

socialism that thing people get upset about while benefitting from its ideas. A bit ironic when most of these people tend to have no understanding of how their own capitalist system works. Oh yes they claim to be economics experts but don’t understand what “free trade deals” are. or how few capitalist systems have existed without gov intervention continually throwing tax revenue to a few companies making the pretense of competition laughable.
