In the News (Independent): “MEPs [Members of European Parliament] have warned European countries must ‘seriously’ consider introducing a general basic income to prepare for wide scale unemployment that could come as a result of robots taking over manual jobs.
“A draft report, tabled by a socialist MEP Mady Delvaux-Stehres, warns preparations must be made for what it describes as the ‘technological revolution’ currently taking place, including provisions for the ‘possible effects on the labour market of robotics’.
“The report, which passed by 17 votes to two and will be put in front of the entire European Parliament in February, urges member states to consider a general basic income in preparation for robots taking over people’s jobs. …
“In an interview, Ms Delvaux-Stehres said such a consideration was important to ensure that even if growing unemployment rises due to the technological revolution, people can still ‘have a decent life’”.
My Comment: According to Baal HaSulam, in his book The Last Generation, every individual in society will receive in the future, by agreement, everything that is required for his existence and will work according to the needs of the society. He will not aspire to receive beyond his necessity.
The society will gradually advance toward this situation through educating itself. The introduction of a system of unconditional basic income without the education of society to become like a single body will not bring the desired result and will only produce new flaws and defects.
