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.
nah i agree a purpose is healthy but i don't feel like the majority of people find their purpose at work.. if anything maybe their purpose is to keep going to work so their kids get fed. But if the kids get fed anyway......

I think Big3 is confusing a middle class job with working.

A middle class job sounds like a boring menu option at a brothel

Yes, I'm so confused. What is work? How does it happen?

I don't know why you think anyone finds purpose in middle-class office jobs. Have you worked one? What was your experience?

I'll look for the article (I hope it's a thinkpiece so Frown will read it) but there was a post-AI job-type argument that said there are 5 or 6 C's that will constitute work that robots won't be used for. that's what I'm imagining people being slotted into. And that's generally where the fulfilment comes in. In helping other people.
