„Why is UBI such a tedious topic?“

Die Frage wird von Robin Kaiser-Schatzlein am Ende in ein einfaches, aber selten vorgebrachtes Argument aufgelöst:

„Pay is, essentially, a political token that we trade in order to control our lives. And if pay isn’t to reward increased productivity, if productivity has been resolved as a problem, pay ought to be linked to our value as citizens in a democracy, meaning distributed equally. This is a good argument for a UBI.“

That’s it: from the spirit of democracy – aus dem Geist der Demokratie eben.
