WHICH IS WHY IT HAS TO BE COUPLED WITH A TRANSITION TO CONSUMPTION TAXES:

The colossal problem with universal basic income (Douglas Rushkoff, 3/23/19, Big Think)

So what really happens what is universal basic income? It's just a way of perpetuating our roles as consumers at the bottom of the pyramid, not as owners. If we're going to go to anything, I would say, what about universal basic assets? What about actual participation? What if the workers owned the means of production? So you don't just give them a handout so that the money ends up in the same corporate coffers and going into the same shares. That's not the point.
