Give People a Universal Income to Keep Them Quiet…

Give People a Universal Income to Keep Them Quiet

Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:

The contents of the featured article may not make one feel warm and rosy, but they are necessary. A universal basic income cannot do anything but create a world “community” dependent class.

Are human beings empowered and capable individuals, or are they mere chattel to be exploited like resources, maintained like house pets, or, eventually, disposed of as trash?

This is a weighty subject that requires some consideration.

The time for calling somebody “conspiracy theorist” to end such important debate is well past over. A world bereft of INDIVIDUALS working freely and openly in relatively decentralized and competitive markets, which are fluid and responsive as opposed to rigid and distant, is what will yield positive results to economy and well-being!

Why would DOUBLING DOWN on the same old centralization bet, which is DECIDEDLY NOT FREE MARKETstart a viable period of convalescing socio/politcal/economic freedoms?

Are you a potential savvy and thoughtful investor in your personal opportunities, wealth, and freedom, or are you merely another bad gambler? 

FEATURED CONTENT

Globalization and its New Discontents … Fifteen years ago, I wrote a little book, entitled Globalization and its Discontents, describing growing opposition in the developing world to globalizing reforms. It seemed a mystery: people in developing countries had been told that globalization would increase overall wellbeing. So why had so many people become so hostile to it? – Project Syndicate, Joseph Stiglitz

Joseph Stiglitz is concerned about why people are hostile to the idea of gigantic, impersonal and rapacious governments stealing from them while telling them what to do.

Governments don’t work on any level. But global government is worst of all. It will deliver ruin, mass incarceration and ultimately genocide.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

But Stiglitz is a world famous economist, so he has better ideas.

More:

Now, globalization’s opponents in the emerging markets and developing countries have been joined by tens of millions in the advanced countries.

… Can the open global economy be saved from populist challengers – and from itself? … How can something that our political leaders – and many an economist – said would make everyone better off be so reviled?

Maybe because people don’t trust politicians and economists and increasingly see ways they cloak their own venal malevolence in the rhetoric of “universal good.”

The world is in a quasi-depression. The gradual diminishment of the global economy is only livened here and there by the West’s endless, serial wars now playing out mostly in the Middle East, but no doubt to be expanded over time.

For Stiglitz, the solution is not to decrease technocratic control so much has to increase the benefits associated with it.

The idea is that people see substantial benefits from technocratic authoritarianism, they will be more likely to accept it, or at least tolerate it.

And that apparently would make Stiglitz happy.
