Honestly, I am so happy someone just took the time to engage me on a topic I am so passionate about and that is Universal Basic Income. Now I want to let my audience know that I am more of a Labour style Socialist. I am a Liberal Socialist after all. Here is what someone wrote to me about Universal Basic Income.
What are my Socialist values then? Well I prefer a Socialism that actually still uses money. My Socialism focuses on sustainable Economic development and access to essential services & an economic safety net. My version of Socialism does not like the Universal Basic Income at this time. Rather we focus on democratization of the workplace. We also create a newer version of Economics which recognizes Ecological sustainability. Lastly my version of Socialism uses humanism and recognizes human rights based on Canada’s beautiful Charter of Rights & Freedoms. Technically I use the modern Canadian model of Socialism which makes sense because I am Canadian.
