Neoliberal Universal Basic Income (UBI):

- Give folks X amount a month
- Remove the social safety net (free healthcare, etc.) “because now there’s UBI”

Progressive Universal Basic Income (UBI):

- Pay everyone a living wage
- Also keep the social safety net

Very different things.


@aral Yes, the world is Black and White.

No, offering UBI shall mean the end of the social wages, and shall not be connected to healthcare or other non-money based social services. But we live in wildly different countries and possibly one can't even imagine the other. You possibly mean different things using the same words as me...
And I'm libertarian, or liberal, and kind of center-left if you need to tag my opinion.
