As technology continues to eliminate traditional jobs at some point in the future some version of basic income will be needed. This can be a very good thing for society as a whole, and at the very least we should look more into it.

Basic Income

Giving people enough money to live on with no strings attached.

In the future we'll need it.

As the rate of technological change continues to accelerate, more of what we consider traditional jobs will be eliminated.

Work for the sake of work is not the answer here...

Many of the things we do today are just more suitable for machines. Like driving, and delivering things.

Fear of hunger will not be the motivator this century.

Taking care of people's most basic needs can lead society as a whole to better and bigger things.

Key: technology is an enabler for more people to build.

Some will play video games, others will go out to start companies and pursue the careers of their dreams.

We can remove the inequality when some income is guaranteed

Ricky Yean's Medium post on " Why few successful startup founders grew up desperately poor” and the "mindset inequality" is a must read. bit.ly/1ROJijK

The Medium post you linked was great. Also loved your quote: "technology is an enabler for more people to build." Do you think this will ever happen? What would need to happen to make basic income a reality?
