Elon Musk: Prepare for ‘Universal Basic Income’

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: How many times has this now been echoed? The big boys on the block continually repeat this line over and over again. Just who is going to pay for it? The billionaires? Right. You and I will. However, if you understand the globalists plan they want to rid the world of its entire population except for 500 million people. In case you need a reminder, there are 7 billion souls on earth at this time.

What would America look like if 47% of working age Americans no longer were employed? And how would a country deal with a 47% job loss? It’s a prediction one study suggested in 2013 and one billionaire thinks he has an answer.

According to the Oxford University study called ‘The Future of Employment’, done by Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne, by the year 2023-2033, 47% of United Sates jobs will replaced by artificial intelligence and automation.

Well, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, believes the answer is held in something called a ‘universal basic income’ where every citizen is allotted ‘x’ amount of dollars each month to be able to live and sustain their life and basic needs.

“There is a pretty good chance we end up with a universal basic income, or something like that, due to automation,” Musk said “Yeah, I am not sure what else one would do. I think that is what would happen.”

  1. This one also claims he is going to live on the moon, if Trump backs out the Paris Climate agreement.
    I am not sure the US ever had men on the moon, because they were all Freemasons that denied any problem with radiation when going through the Van Allan belt. They try to fed us the line that space is like a drive down the street.
    The more degrees a Freemason goes into the more indoctrinated they become to Lucifer worship. Most never go beyond the Master level in the Blue Lodge, which is their local Lodge. To go higher they have to transfer to the Scottish rite or York rite. Once they get to 33 degrees they receive their own “Freemason Bible”.The god of Freemasonry is Lucifer, so they will go by his agenda.
    Man continues into Babel in attempts to save himself.
    Thanks, Brandon

  2. It is absolutely necessary, and really simple.
    Money is no more meaningful than Bitcoin, merely a way of expressing and transferring value.
    The Central Bank (Fed) can add money to the country or remove it from the country with a simple entry on their computers.

    “We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognising this nonsense of earning a living.
    We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” ~Buckminster Fuller.

    Already ‘ Computers and Robotics’ have destroyed 60% – 70% of the jobs of 40 years ago. In 20 years time it will be difficult to find any manual labour or jobs that require people.
    Everything will be self-service.
    Then what?

    • Money is certainly a means of transferring value as you said. It is simply trade with another medium. You lost me with the rest of your comment though PJ. There is no way a universal income is ever going to work. It never has worked and never will. Man is simply trying to build their own salvation. I agree with you about more job and being wiped out though it is and will continue to happen.

      • With all respect, Universal basic income (UBI) has never, ever been tried.
        The reason is that there has always been a lack of resources, and for most of the time, too many people.
        However, in many communities across the world, at village and smaller units basic incomes, has worked perfectly. Think of the hundreds of years that monasteries and other religious and learning institutions have existed.
        Only failing when external forces have uprooted or destroyed the commune.
        Once the need for labour has been removed, and the ridiculous ‘consumer’ society is exposed for the fraud that it really is, then UBI is not only simple, but the only manner in which an extinction can be avoided.
        The world has had the problem of over-production through all times. In ancient times they built pyramids and cathedrals, or had wars to soak up the excess. Today, the USA is the leader in destroying excess capacity through stealing trillions of productive work, turning it into bombs and really useless planes F35, and then creating a labour class of serfs.
        Totally unnecessary, the rest of the world has moved forward and is beyond that nonsense. Only Britain (and to some extent France) is continuing the ‘Empire building – protecting’ theme. The rest just realise that there is more to life than bombs and silly threats.
        US is exporting the violence via ‘war on terror’ but the rest don’t buy it.
        It will be laid to rest and once the latest Empire is reduced to a country then we can get on with our lives. Take a few more years, but the future is clear.

        • “Universal basic income” is another word for “communism” and “socialism” and it has been tried numerous times.

          There are no isolated countries anymore PJ. The world has gone global except for nations like Syria who are under attack and Iran who will be shortly.

          What you have described and these people describe is no ideal world. Neither is the one we live in today. People choose to be consumerists. It is not forced on them at gun point.

          In the end making me pay for someone else to sit on their duff is not right though it has been happening for years. They call it “welfare” or “universal basic income”.

          • First the idea that “Universal basic income” is another word for “communism” and “socialism” is simply not true.
            Second there is a big difference between Communism and Socialism.
            Third under Communism everybody was required to work unless they were retired (65) or students. Nobody sat on their duffs.
            “People choose to be consumerists. It is not forced on them at gun point.”
            No, it is forced on them through ‘social engineering’ Edward Bernays and his ilk. Slowly people are realising that it is nonsense, but they have to decide that Hollywood and TV are tools to shape your desire not a means of education or even Entertainment.
            There are significant societies that do not adhere to Consumerism, mainly much happier than the western societies.
            I do not want to argue, I merely wish to point out that there are alternatives. You can look forward to “BraveNew World’ (Prozac) or ‘1984’ (I need to see your ID) but the world does not have to be dystopian.
            The world has been ruled primarily through fear and greed. Mainly because there was not enough to go around. This is deliberately being maintained by Corporate and Military groups, as without fear of others, (‘Russia’ or poverty) or greed for another car (better than the Jones’s next door) they lose all control over your actions.

            A quote from a 1924 edition of the American Banker’s Association not intended for the public sums up what is currently happening all around us:
            “Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.
            By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance.
            It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”

            The police state is here.
            One can break free, and UBI would enable everyone to choose whether to be ‘salary slaves’ or free individuals.

          • We are not going to agree here. Some of your points are true some are not. It is fantasy to believe someone is going to support someone else for free. Thanks for the discussion PJ.

          • Thanks Brandon.
            ‘ It is fantasy to believe someone is going to support someone else for free.’ it is called ‘Charity’ as in Corinthians 13:13 ‘And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.’
            It was changed to Faith Hope and Love, as we now, in these times require the state to be charitable from the taxes that are taken from us.
            How can so-called Christians be ‘consumerists’ except with brain washing.
            Mathew 10:21
            Jesus said to him, ‘If thou dost will to be perfect, go away, sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, follow me.’.

          • Alright PJ last one here.

            Don’t twist the scriptures now. That is not charity. I pay taxes, I do not give it out of the kindness of my heart. Charity is of free will.

            Who decides who works in your scenario? No answer is really needed here.

            Why? Our Father requires work in order for you to eat. Turn with me to,

            2 Thessalonians 3:10
            10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.”

            God’s Word always helps us understand. He is against any “universal basic income”.
