What else are you going to do if there are no jobs for everyone? Trot people out to a gravel pit and shoot them? Dubya said we seniors would have to work until we dropped dead. I asked "doing what?"

Fascinating experiment. I hope it works out. Giving people a guaranteed, modest allowance should *not* be regarded as a charitable handout. On the contrary, it's a way of emphasising that all of us who are members of a society should be granted some share in that society's wealth as we all are (or should-be) co-inheritors of the capital that our nation has built up over its history. If people then feel that we really are all in this together it has to encourage a shared sense of community - with both the rights *and* obligations (important!) that naturally flow from that sense.
