A Universal Basic Income would be modern slavery. I can think of little more degrading than being entirely dependent on the state for your existence. If one has no value then rights and protections soon become meaningless.

The only difference to the slave owners of old is that at least the slave owners got work out of their slaves. If you pay people money to sit around and do nothing, that's exactly what they will do!
This is still an obscene comparison and you should be deeply ashamed of yourself.

There's no need to get your knickers in a knot about UBI anyway. It'll never happen while folk like you keep voting the way they do - to maintain the "class" status quo etc

Your leap to this hypothetical person who is potentially on UBI as being consequently valueless speaks volumes about your world view. Well, the world view of your crafted persona. The air up there must be pretty thin, eh?
