Also, yeah I acknowledge that there are BS jobs, but if you can get 10% of the workforce to stay home and eat TV dinners, the working class will have more leverage. So at least it would pay better and be harder to fire people.
Good point, Toby.

No. I just think lazy people won't get bored of sitting on their ass.

you really think that any amount of boredom would compel someone to punch a clock at some average job if they didn't need the money? Why wouldn't they just do something fun instead.

Also you never saw Chappelle show???? I mean roots...

I've watched retirement kill at least two of my family members. When you're not doing anything with your life, when you have no purpose, when no one expects you to show up somewhere, decline sets in. After a few months, it's like a gravitational pull.

Am I just not saying this right?

No. I don't think you'd be dead in a year. I'm saying a purpose is healthy. Mind you, if you're working at IHOP and you got UBI, you'd probably quit. But in time you'd make your way back to a career that's slightly more fulfilling.

Those things are called rebus puzzles. Not that I knew it before I googled that just now.
