Video: Larry and Friends (episode 1) Tackle the Myth of ‘Universal Basic Income’
Senior writer Larry Horist leads a rag tag group of political pundits through complex issues. The inaugeral show is about Universal Basic Income, a socialist construct that so many liberals have been pushing.
Enjoy! and be sure to let us know what you think.
Goodness gracious Larry – I expect more from you! I stopped halfway through because it was nothing more than two people’s opinion. It doesn’t matter how great people are when they’re giving their opinion without facts to base that opinion on then it is worthless. We don’t know if they’re bent one way or the other, what motivates them… where’s the facts, the statistics, the relevant examples, the comparisons, the actual cases that are in effect or have been and where’s the follow up on all that. Do better man.
Yes, we know we need to polish up a bit…
yes it will have to really be better so that the morons taught by those wonderful union teachers and taxpayer overpaid tenured professorial indoctrinators will eventually come to the realization that socialism is communism in drag and the wonderful capitalist economic system is still the best
Valuable discussion. Thx
Nah – I don’t support UMI, but you miss a major point the folks who advocate this make. If every living soul is given a basic income that has nothing to do with anything other than the individual has a pulse, the need for the huge, expensive, zombie-job rich welfare system falls away. One argument for the UBI is that, overall, it will cost less than the present system. If UBI is enough, OK. If you want more, go work – the idea is nobody starves, but life will be pretty basic without working. I do like the idea of way, way fewer jobs like those in the administration of welfare systems – those all take money away from productive jobs, i.e. those who in some way contribute to production of the things we all need to live, etc.
Rather than empty blather like this, go do the numbers and present something real on the topic.
Our culture war is Western Civilization Vs cultural Marxism/Marxism. Each of these two worldviews define the role for government, negative rights Vs positive rights, laws of nature and Nature’s God Vs positive law, individualism Vs collectivism, etc. Suggest some of the discussion addresses specifically these foundations of each worldview and the goal for these two worldviews.
Their viewpoints are still valid even though they didn’t read off statistics which can be twisted, You are still watchable, Mr. Horist.
