    Would the world come to an end if musicians had to get real jobs?

    I'll still be able to play and I'll still be able to sing.

    R Buckminster Fuller said in "I seem To Be A Verb" that man is basically a creative and inventive creature and most men would never do nothing. He said, if a man wants to go fishing, let him go fishing, you never know he might find a better way to fish.

    He then cited a newspaper article where a man liked to sit on his porch at night and look at the stars with nothing more than a pair of binoculars, and ended up finding a star that all the astronomers with all their telescopes missed. The star was named after him.

    For me this is the Ultimate argument on ehy we need to look at the Moral implications of technology even moreso than the technological implications.

    I have no use for a UBI. I have no use for anyone who would take a UBI. I hate my job. Id love to not have to go there every day, but I know it is my obligation.... moral snd financial to go there and earn a,living fir myself and my fsmily.

    You have attempted to provide "credibility" for a universal basic income. My question was simply .... you aren't serious, right? You just wanted to give us a history lesson, right? I mean .. your point is well taken ... people do incredibly stupid stuff over and over again.

    So ... what is your opinion of the sociological impacts of such an approach?

    Does it make you feel comfortable to wrap yourself in your play for pity?

    That's easy; just put on a Beatles album or a Bob Dylan song. That will take you directly to one, without passing Go and collecting $200.
