I’ve been playing Skyrim a lot and have created a new character that is a stealthy thief huntress mage type of character. Basically, the polar opposite of the warrior character.
Basic Income is a very passionate idea that I think should fall in line with other ideas for advancing a society.
I also believe in mandatory employment, where every member of a society is required to have some form of private employment, public servitude, self-employment, or other line of work.
I think the only exception would be in the case of someone being 100% incapable of performing any jobs or tasks, and we should use these cases as opportunities for employment by others.
Mothers who are developing babies would still have a job but of course be able to take maternity leave. To help support the business taking a worker loss, governments or private companies could employ people to fill in for those who take maternity leave). We could grant public certificates (honorary titles to put on resumes) for people who have put in their time to fill in for a developing family.
We should switch to electronic, open-source currency and open source systems that we employ people to improve upon. Taxes should be collected with every transaction. Everything should be electronic and based on identity verification.
A lot of people say we should get kids off of the street, and it’s true, but getting rid of the street should be a priority, as well. We need people to be trained to make economically underprivileged cities cleaner, rebuilt, and replaced with more commerce and opportunities. Managers should be trained right in the middle of Detroit while a mass collection of people we found in a homeless shelter are trained/contracted for construction work and given a proper paycheck. They have every opportunity to find another job once their current building project is complete.
I could call it Capitalism 2.0 to make it sound super sweet to US people but the reality is that the US already employs socialist ideas and even some communist ideas, but it really isn’t utilized strongly enough. We should be doing these things and doing them aggressively, we should be aggressively decapitating poverty. We have every ability to do so, we just need to employ more and more people to work for society.
