UBI is only designed to elevate people out of poverty, but with the current political and economic system, and artificial intelligence on the rise, we can only expect a dystopian future.
This isn’t a case against universal basic income per se. The problem is that universal basic income is probably going to be used by economic and political elites as a distraction from a much more sever social restructuring. With the power of the artificial intelligence within the hands of the few biggest corporations they will control and manipulate everything. It’s not a conspiracy theory. They are doing it right now.
In this video, I build up on the arguments and premises laid out by AI developers and researches like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Ray Kurzweil, and Sam Harris. While Elon Musk thins universal basic income is inevitable, we still share the stance on the dangers of artificial intelligence. Where I differ is that we can’t rely on the system where we can no longer earn our own income, but have to rely on the corporations and governments to sustain our living.
