Why a Universal Basic Income Won't Work

What assumptions does a UBI make about human nature?


That it does ot matter whethre one is supported by the state/others or upgrades himself.

Most people cannot or will not take care of themselves.

UBI assumes that all people want to be self-reliant. Not true. Welfare robs people of the motivation to work. It is basic human nature that people will tend to take the easy road.
