No one should have to be afraid of big changes
Those who are afraid of their existence will vehemently oppose any change. We must therefore design a system where every loser of change becomes a winner.
Germany has twice dismantled itself because of the fear for jobs: For computers and electric cars. Anyone who delays development by a few years for fear of losing jobs has little chance of catching up. In England there was the heater on the electric locomotive until 1982.
We can't turn 1/3 of the working population into heaters on the electric locomotive. We can't make 1/3 of the working population lose out on change. We have to make sure that all those losers of change are better off than before. This better off cannot and must not be judged in terms of money received in bank accounts, but in terms of living standards and security.
|UBI - Universal basic income|
|UBI is becoming increasingly necessary, but is not compatible with the current system. Creating the foundations of a UBI compatible society.|
|UBI for self-supplying people|
|Rental apartment in San Francisco, electricity, fuel, food, craftsmen for repairs are all easily paid by the UBI. Free yourself from such excessive illusions.|
|Keeping the economy competitive|
|If the costs for housing, food and energy are very high, even enormously high wages are hardly enough to live on. A vicious circle of economic decline.|
