In academic intellectual circles it is re-proven that even though these “Professors” who support theories can be out of touch with reality on some basis. There ignorance lies in the dislike for the UBI (Universal Basic Income). They use Strawman and Moral Fallacies to dissuade the UBI.
Let us look at a few cases.
Ester Rodiguez. Her story lies in the fact she was an abused wife who needed to get away from her husband. She relates that when she was rescued by the system, she had substandard living, nutrition, and the Government controlled her life. The instance of a Universal Income means Ester would have controlled her own life with a UBI. Not depending on he husband or the State for assistance. Ester would have been able to leave and end her situation. Many programs maybe important, and the way the Government rescues people is like no rescue at all. The State puts drug offenders and Child Molesters in the same units as abused children, mothers and other victims.
Jerome Head: His story lies in the fact he is mentally ill. Because of his poverty, which agitates his condition, makes him behave even worse. If Jerome could afford a place to live with a few creature comforts, his agitation would decrease. Many homeless are not mentally ill, but have emotional problems because the system abandons those who fall through the cracks. This in a broad based sense manifest mental and emotional problems. Poverty and the lack of access to basic creature comforts will have dire effects even on the most normal and well adjusted person.
Mary Hoffs: Mary is a welfare mother living on a controlled TANF and Welfare system. She cannot Afford quality foods for he children, she must buy substandard low end products that provide little nutrition.
The family lives in a Hotel 6, which is too crowded. Mary must obey the Government and try to find a job, while they pimp her out to work at the same time. If she is not obedient she is penalized. They take some of her TANF money away.
John Shank: I have a limited income and I would like to fix my house. One day, I see, If I didn’t have money, I wouldn’t be able to repair my house, afford utilities. I feel the pressure of drowning. Not being rich isn’t the issue, meeting my needs is enough. Once people run out of unemployment then what? They start to sink. Being on Unemployment incurs a form of Government programs in which the Government makes you do things. Like taking idiotic classes. Demanding you go out and finds work, then they penalize you if you fill out your forms wrong. My Unemployment should be unconditional, why government servitude? They have power over my life.
*The Welfare system violates the 13 Amendment of the Constitution and engages in many Human Rights abuses.
Money also dulls physical pain and eases the sting of social rejection, new research shows.
Through six experiments, psychologists and a marketing professor probed the power of money as a proxy for social acceptance. Among their results, they found that merely touching bills or thinking about expenses paid affected the participants both physically and emotionally.
Because it affects pain, money may be a clue to how the brain evolved to process social interactions, the researchers wrote in a paper published in the June edition of the journal Psychological Science.
The importance of money in human life is similar to the importance of food for the body. Just like you can’t live even for a few days without food, you can’t survive for long without money.
You can definitely solve most of your problems of life if you have unlimited supply of money. If you have lots of money.
•You won’t be facing basic problems of life like food, water, shelter or clothing.
•You can buy all items for your comfort like house, Air-conditioners, TV and other household goods to live comfortably.
The only problem is that money does not come just like that to any person by any amount of wishing, praying or wanting. Money is incredibly important that is why the UBI is important. You need it, because without it you run into problems. But the problem is, those who have lots of it have even more problems.
