New Life #698 – Making A Living Without Having To Work
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe
According to a new initiative in Finland and Switzerland, every citizen will be entitled to a basic salary without any conditions. This initiative shows that humanity is advancing toward a new attitude to money and to work in general.
The idea of wages may become irrelevant in the future as everyone will receive the same wages and only those whose work is really necessary will actually work, so instead of polluting nature by producing unnecessary products and by aggressive advertising, we will cease to be slaves and will live comfortably. This will happen when we stop chasing wealth that doesn’t lead to happiness and we will organize a life that is really good. And when technology frees most people from work, we will all learn how to have corrected relationships. The development of the ego will make us lose interest in consumerism and in being slaves to work as we are today.
Providing every citizen with minimum wages is destructive and will lead people to being indifferent and disconnected from reality since a person will not know how to fill his day. He will therefore need some guidance since otherwise he can go mad. Giving every citizen a basic salary unconditionally will create people who don’t want to work and who are unfit to work. What we should do is to bring everyone to a cultural-educational experiential framework.
