Universal basic income is a great idea, which is also why it won't happen

Re: Welcome back Stalin

You are confusing the evolved innate tendency for humans to believe in agency, with the necessity of that agency existing. You then throw in a mix of the misguided idea that belief in some agency is a prerequisite for moral behaviour (which is neatly disproved by the observation that atheists give more to charity than people ho identify themselves as religious).

Basically, you start from the position that the universe is inherently meaningful, then argue for that position by claiming that anything else is a sign of sociopathy.

You should probably take a look Here, tick off the pitfalls you have fallen into, re-examine your arguments, and start again.
