At least, we all got to experience life in a country with a Universal Basic Income. The result is riots, looting, mass hysteria, and crowds of people going over the deep end.
Unlike predicted, the idle yet UBI-ed masses didn’t create works of art or explore new hobbies. Instead, they started prowling the streets and punching strangers in the face in a search for a sense of purpose.
Can we put this idea to rest, at least? Or is more proof needed?
I’d gladly recognize I was wrong and embrace the UBI if the results weren’t as horrid as they are. Why can’t the supporters of the idea change their minds now that there’s clear evidence that UBI leads to misery and chaos?
