Re: fast forward.

But consider 100 years in the future. Where will the UBI come from then? What will the citizens of 2117 be getting. And more importantly, what about the families that have known nothing except getting all their money from the state for as long as any of them can remember - what will they be like?

It will be just like Star Trek. No one there ever seems to worry about where their money comes from. Except the Ferengi, of course.
