Many political decision-makers think that if unconditional basic income were introduced, no one would go to work any more.
What does that mean then? That the world of work is hell where no one goes unless they have to? That working is so bad that you have to make people work?
That people have to be forced into inhumane forced labour for 50 years of their precious lives?!
That it is normal procedure in the system to get people to work through their survival instinct? That the world of work means living in fear and coercion and self-depowerment and heteronomy?
And that this is perfectly clear to the political decision-makers and that they simply accept this state of affairs as a given?
Isn’t profession also called vocation? If the world of work were a place of soulfulness and voluntariness, of self-empowerment and meaning, then no money in the world could stop people from working. Not even a million euros a month. After taxes, of course.
But like this… If everyone has to go to battle every morning…. So, of course, there must be no salvation for man. No hope of a safe haven. No safety among his brothers and sisters.
Just let live without fear…. Not sweating with his back against the wall. Where will the profit come from then!? From picking flowers, or what?!
