@interneteh it's not weird at all. i want people to survive easily, so i want the living expenses as low as possible. preferably free.

that doesn't mean i want everything to be cheap. if it causes harm to people, animals or the environment, it would like it to be expensive..

a #ubi may not nessecarily cover all basic living expenses (depends on the amount, of course) but i think it's fair to assume that its the first thing people use it for..

@sofia yeah I'm not interested in cheap either. If it's essential, it should be free. And making those things free means money itself becomes less important. That was my only point really

@interneteh but it's a step _towards_ free. wanting living expenses be covered is one thing, getting people to cover them is another. and if it's via money or not doesn't really matter. people have to make food and build/maintain houses. it's more plausible that is gradually becomes cheaper than that everyone just simultaneously decides that it will be free now..
