I find it fascinating (in a social experiment sort of way) the fanatical, er, passionate reactions I received from my FB “friends” when I posted President-elect Joe Biden’s “politricks” about the stimulus checks. I deliberately posted the comment on January 15th (MLK’s Birthday). Why? MLK was a fierce advocate for Universal Basic Income (UBI) during his lifetime. In other words, we should be getting at least 2K per month during the pandemic instead of a proposed 2K for a single year. Intriguingly, other OECD countries are giving their citizens as high as 7K per month in UBI. As of December, Australian citizens have gotten 24K since their pandemic in accumulated UBI.
