Twenty-two cities across the United States that will participate in a universal basic income (UBI) program funded by money that cities have received from the coronavirus stimulus package. UBI will make people dependent on the government and will drain the labor force, negatively affecting small businesses. Los Angeles has the largest UBI pilot program with $40 million in funding, Chicago’s leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot proposes spending $31 million on the program to give 5,000 low-income households $500 per month despite Chicago’s 20-member Black Caucus that wants to redirect the money to violence prevention programs. Durham, North Carolina will soon provide more than 100 formerly incarcerated residents with a guaranteed income of $500 a month.

When the takers outnumber the producers any nation is finished. We are very close to that point now.
Rome didn’t die a peaceful death, it was assassinated ! The same is happening to us as we sit by and watch it happening. Amazing what Americans will tolerate.

Rather than scaling back the welfare state due to the fact that it already has massive unfunded liabilities, the government decided that the most prudent course would be a massive expansion of it. We are witnessing the disintegration of the nation state; it cannot financially survive. The new cyber economy is going to allow producers to “shop around” for the most competitive tax jurisdictions so they will no longer have to be drained of their resources by these predatory governments who are losing their monopolies on violence.
