Some familiar, some not, but the point being is that at least for today, more people can have the soapbox.
Will more people listen? Not sure. I’m not sure that it even matters, but I do know it makes for some interesting reading as is the case of Jamie Lee Curtis’ entry on The Huffington Post.
Ms Curtis speaks about the need essentially for a guaranteed minimum income for people. Something I personally agree with and support.
I think it would alleviate a lot of societies ills and actually help the economy; especially at the local level which of course isn’t good for the big corporations that control governments and rule the world.
“I am thinking about the millions of workers who were cut loose by their partners, their government, their businesses, their bosses, their schools, institutions. The rope has been cut. One lost job creates another. Who is going to FIX THE INCOME? Who is going to allow people to age with dignity and safety, that there will be a cushion, a soft seat for them to grow old on, to care for them, to help them to assist the living?”
Imagine culling all of our social programs here in Canada? No more welfare, unemployment, old age pension, disability pension and all of the massive over heads associated with them. Imagine one system so that for those for whatever reason who aren’t fortunate enough to earn past a certain point that they’d have their basics?
The less people make the higher the percentage of that amount they spend locally. They may not have extras for big trips or big ticket purchases, but they buy groceries, rent or own their own homes and all that goes with it, and buy the things they need to survive.
