Of course, people who extol the joys of joblessness – and this is a trend that started back in the 1989s – have zero interest in quitting their own jobs and going on UBI. To the contrary, you couldn’t drag them out of the office to save your life.
No, the joblessness we are supposed to celebrate is the kind experienced by the young men in the twenties I recently wrote about who are out of the workplace and not even trying to look for a job. The solution that progressives offer to these young men’s situation is to make sure that the government (and not their parents) pays for their addictions, more of which will be legalized and mainstreamed.
This is the grand plan. And I find it a lot more dangerous and inhuman than anything Trump has ever suggested.
