mason240 comments on “A New Social Contract with Basic Income”

>UBI is a form of welfare.

It’s not. It’s fundamentally different from current welfare programs. that are complete with shortsighted baggage like income caps that are either so low they screw over the middle class, or so high they only exist to spite the high-income earners actually paying the taxes. Either case requires a whole bureaucracy to fund and hassle for everyone.

staticassertion comments on “Soylent Closes $50M Series B Round Led by GV”

And Soylent can be fine for those things. It’s simple to see that it’s faster than cooking a meal. Does that mean you’ll spend that time better? No. It’s simple to see that your calories are measured out for you – does that mean you won’t eat more than you should? No.

Both examples had underlying issues that Soylent did not solve, because it never could. Doesn’t mean it can’t solve those same problems for others.
