That's a safety net and keeps people from becoming desperate. In fact
the crime reduction it might produce might pay for it. You can look
up the different countries implementing it and see how they are going
to pay for it.
/You are not even making any sense.
How would everyone being poor reduce the crime rate? In an ideal world,
everyone would be rich, not poor - there would be no crime because
everyone would have all they want, so there would be no reason to steal. /
/But, we don't live in an ideal world yet, so we have to be practical
and earn money ourselves and not depend on the government./
Otherwise limit how much money anyone can have because we're seeing
that billionaires are mentally ill and don't deserve the power they wield.
There is no evidence that being a billionaire would indicate a person
was mentally ill. The richest man on the planet, Bill Gates, gives away
millions of dollars every day to help people. Most rich Americans are
the biggest donors to charity and good causes./
Americans are so brainwashed with a Tarzan like "capitalism good,
socialism bad" meme that its difficult to get any decent change and
it'll just send us back to the middle ages where there are two classes
the extremely wealthy and the extremely poor. Don't stand for it!
/If my plan is implemented there will be plenty of work for everyone,
making good money so they can buy what they need and pay their own way./
Nothing brings this out more than than the holiday season or "Crassmust".
/You're not even making any sense: without a job to earn money there
would be no gifts to give. You are just being negative and showing your
prejudice - t//he whole idea of Christmas is to give./

Yes, but I don't know how that would be possible. This area I now
live in, was a paradise for the natives, for 3,000 years - no
inter-tribal warfare, and absolute respect for territorial
boundaries. But, they had nothing, and lived entirely off the land. I
like my tech, and modern life, and not sure how that would happen,
without monetary rewards.

People sure are desperate for making money so they come up with their
weirdest ideas. If there is a future it's going to be VERY, VERY
weird. Just think what a nicer world this would be if people didn't
have to worry about making money.
