You Realize the Universal Basic Income Is Feudalism, Right?
January 10, 2017
What does the future hold for average people?
And they’ll welcome it with open arms, convinced that they are embracing a smart, fair system that eliminates poverty. The greed, entitlement, and lack of ambition that seems inherent in many people today will have them slipping on the yoke of servitude willingly.
Here’s what I mean.
Have you ever been around people who say things like,
“I can’t afford it, but I deserve it…”
“Having [fill in the blank with a material object] is a basic right…”
“Losing that right is okay with me because it’s for the greater good.”
But the thing is, what we “deserve” is the right to pursue our dreams freely.
We deserve what we earn.
We deserve to be secure in our life, liberty, and property.
We deserve the freedom to go about our lives and decisions as long as we aren’t harming the life, liberty, and property of others.
No one owes us anything other than that.
But quite a few people are ready to give up their freedom so that someone else can take care of them.
