An Unconditional Basic Income

laitman_546_02Question: Humanity is arriving gradually at the conclusion that if every person had an unconditional basic income of let’s say 600 to 800 Euros, it would be enough for him to live in peace and not worry about the future, and thus would allow the development of his brain.

Answer: In confusing ways, but nevertheless mankind is still moving to the so-called communism. All of it comes from the most ordinary materialistic tendencies that stabilize society

Question: You have said that the level of unemployment in the world is going to rise.

Answer: Yes, and unemployment should go along with education because otherwise it will end badly.

Basically, a person doesn’t need to be preoccupied with sustaining his temporary body because it needs very little. It is much better to provide the body with ordinary, simple, healthy food so that everyone would be healthy and happy. This is the reason that we must make sure that everyone has whatever he needs in order to live decently.

If we reach this state, a person will not demand more as a result of the right education, and would dedicate all of his time to changing himself in order to ascend to the next level of our existence.

Question: Do you think that, as a result of such education, a person would not stop by a shop window in order to enjoy the sight of a shiny worthless object?

Answer: It will not happen. There will be no more shop windows and no worthless objects because as a result of the right education, a person will not find that attractive anymore.

This is the reason that I support the idea of an unconditional basic income and unconditional basic education.
