Over the centuries, humanity usually progressed, the needs are always changing depending on the demand for economic growth. Today’s situation has made the idea of a universal basic income be booming like never before, and for good reason.
In the industrial age, people were needed in order to run the machines and therefore generate wealth, so, labor force was needed, so schools with today’s form appeared.
Students are sitting in lines, just like in factories, and they have to obey the teacher, just like workers obey their supervisor.Trump It’s crystal clear, school is a worker generator.
Today, we have automated systems in factories and the need for labor force is constantly decreasing, if it continue that way, it’ll reach zero soon.
Schools are totally useless (at least in their current form) today, as we are not in the industrial age anymore, so this kind of worker has no demand.
The rise of populism proves that the economy is no longer working for everyone, the miracle of Capitalism has reached its end, and the reason is simple, it succeeded.
We now can do almost anything, and fully automated, workers can now become entrepreneurs, as automation can do the hard work and generate the wealth, while people can do something more advanced.
A universal basic income would give an upgrade to our current economic system, and directly lift the living conditions of everyone, and change forever what it means to “make a living”.
Trump was elected because we automated away a ton of manufacturing jobs, according to Andrew Yang, an American entrepreneur running for President in 2020 on a platform based on a universal basic income plan.
People will always work to improve every aspect of humanity, but in order for that to happen, people much give up the old way of thinking and establish UBI system under which everybody’s survival will be guaranteed, and people will be able to do more advanced stuff.
