This concept has been spread by Technocrats such as billionaire Richard Branson, Y Combinator, Elon Musk,  Google, and other Silicon Valley moguls. Basically, this is economic insanity. ? TN Editor

Political philosopher and economist Karl Widerquist, an associate professor at Georgetown University in Qatar,remembers a poll from 10 years ago that showed just 12 percent of Americans approved of a universal basic income.

That's changed — and quickly. Today, 48 percent of Americans support it, according to a new Northeastern University/Gallup survey of more than 3,000 U.S. adults.

"It represents an enormous increase in support," said Widerquist, who is a well-known advocate for a universal basic income. "It's really promising."

Proposals for universal basic income programs vary, but the most common one is a system in which the federal government sends out regular checks to everyone, regardless of their earnings or employment.
