Libs Destroy Mans Independence, Drive and Personal Success

You all know the answer, but I'll pose the question anyway.

What happens when you remove mans need to earn a living?

Wary of robots taking jobs, Hawaii toys with guaranteed pay


HONOLULU — Driverless trucks. Factory robots. Delivery drones. Virtual personal assistants.

As technological innovations increasingly edge into the workplace, many people fear that robots and machines are destined to take jobs that human beings have held for decades--a trend that is already happening in stores and factories around the country. For many affected workers, retraining might be out of reach —unavailable, unaffordable or inadequate.

What then?

Enter the idea of a universal basic income, the notion that everyone should be able to receive a stream of income to live on, regardless of their employment or economic status.

It isn't an idea that seems likely to gain traction nationally in the current political environment. But in some politically progressive corners of the country, including Hawaii and the San Francisco Bay area, the idea of distributing a guaranteed income has begun to gain support.

Just makes you feel warm and fuzzy doesn't it? However, here is the key sentence in the piece:

"The crucial question of who would pay for the program has yet to be determined."

Just a minor detail to be worked out.

Yeah, all toasty comfy, knowing the permanent min wage, no initiative worker, will be able to walk away from contributing to society, get fat, suffer physical ailments others will be forced to pay for.

Yeah, we, the taxpayer will foot the bill.

Marx' corpse has a shit eating grin right about now. :mad:

Great. Everyone spends the day on the beach, the robots do the work and the people get paid.

What could possibly go wrong.

I like seeing articles like this. The mask is falling away, finally, from the true face of the Left. This is the sort of thing they've wanted all along, and will pursue until the end of time.... or until the end of the Left itself.

I'm not the first one to observe that the Left has to lie all the time about itself and about what it really wants, because if it told the actual truth, no sane person would cast a vote for a Leftist. Perhaps now the lies are being discarded and we're seeing the real Left in action. Maybe they think that now is the time to cast all caution to the wind and go for it.

Boy, I hope so.
