  1. There is a long ongoing discussion about Unconditional Basic Income here in Germany, but I do not expect it to be granted or introduced during the rest of my lifetime. They are not willing to give up the opportunity to rule and intimidate people with money.

  2. The ideology reads, nobody shall get something without earning it. Interestingly this does not apply to heirs and speculators. – Have a nice day, I’m out for job training.
