The Hope in Swiss Attitudes to Welfare

Imagine:

“Imagine you are being born and society tells you ‘Welcome, you will be cared for, and asks you what you want to do with your life, what is your calling? Imagine that feeling, that’s a whole different atmosphere.”

– Daniel Straub, Co-founder,
Basic Income Initiative

From this article on The Mind Unleased, which i found in my Facebook feed from Ian MacKenzie, author of Sacred Economics: Swiss To Pay Basic Income 2,500 Francs Per Month To Every Adult | The Mind Unleashed.

I was further inspired by an impassioned comment on the article about how ‘humans need to stop working so hard by themselves’, which has been on my mind a lot lately as i sit here trying to reinvent the wheel, but more on that later.
