  • Lessons from Finland: think BIG but act with pragmatism | BIEN
    opposition did not disappear overnight But it gradually lost steam until it became a remnant of the past deprived of any real power BIG will succeed when it will achieve the same broad consensus Our goal is to make opposition to BIG unfashionable and a little reprehensible The danger is not that the wrong people like the idea Rather the problem is that some people want to appropriate the name to implement different policies If a proposed basic income is not high enough to cover basic human necessities like food shelter and clothing then it cannot be called basic income BIG should also not be confused with means tested grants or workfare schemes We need to be clear about this In Finland the government s position oscillates between a real basic income and austerity or workfare policies but public pressure and intellectual debate are creating a space for a BIG experiment A universal basic income should gain the support of Marxists trade unionists neoliberals businessmen teachers farmers feminists tech nerds American billionaires and Nigerian chicken farmers The alliance must be broad and deep and focus on common human needs The emerging domain of populist politics increased media attention and the growing intellectual debate around BIG provide an unprecedented opportunity to further our cause Of course we should not kid ourselves that humanity would finally overcome its differences under the guise of a BIG campaign nor that left wing and right wing interpretations would lead to the same result BIG organizations should be democratic forums for people from different backgrounds Some of them are naturally inspired by a variety of utopian visions Broad based BIG has the potential to act as a true meeting ground for popular struggle in which conflicting visions of the good society can strategically talk to each other and put forward a shared simple solution People should be able to set aside their differences at least for a short while We may not like all our friends in the movement Some of our allies are horrible people By the way they probably think the same about you But we still have to live together in the same house If people can for the time being agree on basic income then we have already won Bickering partisans can still keep on fighting over other issues Trust me there will always be something to fight about So bite your nails and be wise about strategy Smile to your enemies Shake hands with the most awful people The smiling basic income activist is a silent deadly assassin If we want to think BIG we need to act stealthily We do not have the luxury to choose our political allies Otto Lehto is a philosopher and a political activist He is the chairman of BIEN Finland About Guest Contributor Guest has written 4 articles View all posts by Guest Contributor Blog Follow Leave a comment Activism Finland Pilot projects Pragmatism Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be

  • Finland, basic income, and the government's schizophrenia
    mutually incompatible goals piloting an unconditional basic income and simultaneously increasing the conditionality of social security benefits makes predicting the future difficult In this context how will BIEN Finland stand The BIEN Finland network has strong existing connections to many of the opposition parties including the Green Party and the Left Alliance which are both strong supporters of basic income Due to accidents of history we have weaker connections to the government coalition parties with the exception of a handful of MP s think tanks and the youth wing of the Center Party so we have had little influence on the planning of the basic income pilot project Nonetheless we will continue to proactively offer our expertise to the government We will follow the developments as they happen and inform the European network as soon as we know more about the upcoming pilot program Thank you Otto Credit picture CC Aaronigma About Stanislas Jourdan Stanislas Jourdan has written 30 articles Co Founder of the French Movement for basic income Also journalist in a previous life View all posts by Stanislas Jourdan Blog Twitter Facebook Google Follow 5 comments Finland 5 comments Concerned citizen June 29 2015 at 11 03 am It s not continental Finland but the autonomous zone of Åland that has voiced its support for basic income I m willing to bet that the whole experiment will be in Åland http www radiotv ax nyheter aland testomrade basinkomst Reply Otto Lehto June 29 2015 at 1 51 pm The Åland case shouldn t be confused with this The national government of Finland has expressed its support for the basic income experiment on the mainland I highly doubt that it will be in the island of Åland exclusively at least since PM Sipilä and the think tanks Sitra Tänk have been talking about either 1 regional experiments on the mainland or 2 cross sectional experiments across the whole country But the details are indeed forthcoming so anything is possible Terry Schon June 29 2015 at 6 53 pm UBI is revolutionary Should the experiment succeed and it is proven that ordinary people will innovate and work hard if they are only given the security foundation and freedom to do so Those that take great pleasure creating poverty suppression and servitude in order to aggrandize themselves will lose their place in the world Basically the parasitical central banking system and all those institutions and individuals that share in the feeding that bleeds the rest of us dry Reply Pingback Finlande Un gouvernement schizophrène veut expérimenter le revenu de base buno July 2 2015 at 10 46 pm Here in Brazil we hava a basic income program called bolsa familia altough many say it did eliminate de misery an poverty this is simply not true The governament tax regulate and spend tatics destroyed the nations industry inflaction is 1 A MOUTH And the situation is about to get a lot worse Thanks to de wellfare state we have the geração nem
