"Should the government pay to keep you alive?"

An interesting debate--"Should the government pay to keep you alive?" While your immediate answer may be, "Hell No! People have to get off their asses and look after themselves!"---this traditional attitude is being increasingly challenged by thinkers on both the left and right extremes of the political spectrum as the world becomes increasingly dependent on smart machines rather than human labour to do most of the work. This article will challenge your perspective about the validity of your long held views as we are propelled into the new world! Get ready to "TAKE OFF!"

Ontario Liberals to Test Minimum Guaranteed Income Plan

As we rapidly lose work worldwide as technology steals most jobs, policy makers must devise ways of supporting the many jobless citizens and Ontario is planning to "test-drive" a minimum guaranteed income plan.  This is a very positive move as the first stage of the transition to the upcoming future of few jobs.  In past experiments, partly with the Mincom Plan in Dauphin Manitoba and others in the world, it has been found to be cheaper and more effective and efficient to replace the many various welfare and other social support programs with the one program guaranteeing a minimum income for all.
