It is happening.

I’m reading more and more about universal basic income. Either this means it’s going to happen, or more people are writing about it, or I’m just noticing it more because I’m human and programmed to notice these things.

If people are working—if you have to get up every day in the morning, travel to your job, do your job, then return home—this is physically exhausting. It also uses up a lot of cognitive resources, your ability to think. It’s one of the most extensive control mechanisms in society. If you have to get up every day and go to a job simply to survive, it makes you less politically willing to take risks.
