“UBI is an idea whose time has come” But what it actually means?
The article explore in a Q&A form, the significance of UBI as a personal journey of discovery and self-realisation.



UBI is a moral choice, before anything else.


Putting something called “UBI” aside for a second here... There was a puzzle in my mind that I spent years trying to solve.

It related to ethics, and to the motivations of humanity.

It dug deeply into things like greed, ego, envy, esteem, culture, intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, value, etc...
Mentally I climbed this mountain for years.
Recently, I reached the top of my own mental journey.

There at the top, to my surprise and now delight, a flag was already waiting for me. It seems as though it has been there forever.
The flag was just waiting not only for me, but for everyone else who might climb a similar mental journey in their own way.
The flag didn’t seem to care about my mental journey, or anyone else’s really, it simply stood at the top and read: “#BasicIncome” …

UBI aligned with my own personal discoveries… I made my own climb without the idea of “Universal Basic Income”, yet profoundly this flag was already there waiting for me at the top… and I believe it is now waiting for everyone else too.

Not directly connected to UBI thematics but none the less food for thought!
