  • Swiss politicians reject basic income because they are scared of humans
    this idea in the parliament of Switzerland is of great value The Council of States will debate the basic income initiative this winter Then in autumn 2016 the decision will fall to the Swiss citizens The political class has identified its fear the Swiss people and the danger of a laziness epidemic The referendum result will tell us if the Swiss people fear themselves too Che Wagner studied economic history He is the director of the referendum campaign for a Basic Income in Switzerland About Matthias Lindemer Matthias Lindemer has written 1 articles Engaged for Basic Income in Germany and Switzerland since 2006 City councilor of Lörrach Germany Master of science in ecology Now working for the Basic Income election campaign in Switzerland and writing for Basic Income News View all posts by Matthias Lindemer Blog Facebook Follow 2 comments fear politicians Swiss referendum Switzerland 2 comments Karen December 10 2015 at 9 56 pm quote Keller for example called the proposal a slap in the face of all the people getting up at 6 for work in the morning endquote Most humans get up and do stuff for no pay anyway there are families to feed children elderly and disabled to care for gardens to grow animals to feed advocacy and community duties to perform It should be noted that those who go to paying jobs are going to get a BIG check also so that if they are underemployed at their jobs this is not an insult to them but justice quote What if there is a basic income and the people refuse participation in the workforce There will be no more value creation and thus no more tax revenue and thus no basic income According to the politicians the basic danger comes from human beings themselves because of human laziness the freedom of decision allowed by a basic income could be dangerous endquote Why would anybody quit their job unless it was dangerous negative abusive or busy work Most would still work unless the employer were a bad one taking advantage of the worker s vulnerability with no social net Some humans are lazy some are addicts some are abusive The BIG is not meant to fix all of that just the inequity and economic imbalances Wow and I thought the Swiss said they were a free country why is freedom a bad thing Is this politician admitting that his countrymen are wage slaves That the system is rigged to make you work for the multinational corporations Reply Sonu Sabnis December 14 2015 at 10 23 pm Yes the Swiss fear many things Among them definitely also one another Despite what people round the world might think when they hear about the Swiss voting on this Switzerland really is a very conservative country with some very backward people The society isn t at all ready for anything as radically progressive as a basic income But the plan of the initiants is literally to take the initial step
