Many people are uniting behind the idea of universal basic income with the assumption that it will give them greater freedom and more free time. But they are completely wrong about universal basic income. UBI is only designed to elevate people out of poverty, but with the current political and economic system, and artificial intelligence on the rise, we can only expect a dystopian future.
This isn’t a case against universal basic income per se. The problem is that universal basic income is can going be used by economic and political elites as a distraction from a much more sever social restructuring. With the power of the artificial intelligence within the hands of the few biggest corporations they will control and manipulate everything. It’s not a conspiracy theory. They are doing it right now.
This video builds on the arguments and premises laid out by AI developers and researches like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Ray Kurzweil, and Sam Harris. While Elon Musk thinks universal basic income is inevitable, we still share the stance on the dangers of artificial intelligence, because we can’t rely on the system when we can no longer earn our own income, but have to rely on corporations and governments to sustain our lives.
