i'm not gung-ho about UBI anymore, but i will say this: you will not understand UBI until you understand the difference between work and employment

the same goes for any actual post-capitalist economy, as well: work is not the same thing as employment. there is plenty of work that never gets done because nobody's employing people to do it

remove *employment* from the list of things you need to survive, and you'll see a lot more *work* get done

any economic system that assumes most people don't intrinsically want to do meaningful work is empirically false and should not be taken seriously

"yeah but people are lazy and don't want to work unless we threaten them" — this myth originates from shitty employers, whom nobody wants to work for

@amydentata people like doing things and being useful. nobody likes sitting under flourescent lights all day clicking on excel spreadsheets or talking to angry people or whatever while their piss breaks are micromanaged
