Media now pushing claims that being unemployed is healthier than holding down a “stressful” job … all part of the push toward “basic monthly income” welfare

It should be obvious to even the casual political observer that the Alt-Left media is the driver of so-called “progressive” idealism. Once the media begins pushing a concept, it becomes part of the Left’s modus operandi.

In recent years progressives have been pushing the concept of a “universal basic income” — that is, a monthly stipend from the government that would replace actual employment. The idea is that everyone would be taken care of, no one would go without, and income equality would finally be achieved.

What they never tell you, however, is that a basic income is just welfare by another name. Also, when you essentially pay people to do nothing, that’s exactly what society gets in return: Nothing. Like every other government (taxpayer) program, cradle-to-grave welfare breeds irresponsibility, saps initiative and drive, destroys any sense of self-worth and more importantly, permanently limits a person’s lifetime earning ability.

It also puts every single person under further control of the government: After all, if you literally depend on government for your livelihood, what’s to stop that government from imposing whatever tyrannical rule it wishes to impose? Anyone who resists will be cut off and left to fend for themselves, which will become increasingly harder to do. (Related: America has turned into a handout nation, record 236 million people collecting some form of assistance from the Government.)

And there is this: Who decides how much the “basic income” will be? What will be the criteria? Where will the money come from?

But no matter. Hey, at least we’d all be equal, even if it’s equally miserable.

Still, the Left-wing media pushes this as if it’s a real solution, even finding creative ways to do so. The UK’s Daily Mail, for instance, is trying to sell a basic monthly income as a “stress reliever” and a key to better health:

It is healthier to be unemployed than have a stressful job, new research suggests.

Adults who go from being out of work to having a poor-quality job suffer more stress-related health concerns, a study found.

These include having significantly worse blood glucose and cholesterol levels, the research adds.
