“Unconditional Basic Income – Naive Illusion or Base for a Sustainable Future?”
Wednesday November 16th, Great profound presentation by Thomas Krisper
The Swiss referendum on June 5th 2016 drew the worldwide attention to this idea: Everybody should be guaranteed an Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) in order to be able to live modest but in dignity. You can also see it as a financially extended interpretation of the Human Rights declaration (Article 1: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”). Other aspects are: an answer to automation and increasing unemployment, a new definition of work, a possibility of activating the creativity and resources of all humans, and many more. The important part is: It is not just a new form of social welfare, but a total shift of paradigms: From a system of fear and competition to a system of institutionalized love and mutual empowerment, which is more efficient not only ethically but also economically!
