Quotes

[first lines]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [clip from "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "The Neutral Zone", 1988] A lot has changed in the past three hundred years. People are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things. We've eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions. We've grown out of our infancy.

Absolutely thought provoking about unconditional basic income
4 October 2017 | by OJTSee all my reviews

I never really believed in the idea of "free money" to everyone, or unconditional basic income, without working for it.

But this film triggers my interest. Fact: The world produces enough foods and goods to feed a happy world. Fact: The world is more than prosperous enough to end all inequality. Fact: The Walmart-family owns just as much as 160 mill. Americans. Fact: Lotto winners keep on working even if they don't have to. Fact: A tax on money- and finance-transactions will fix this inequality. Fact: It would boost the economy to give more people a decent income.

The system of today, where the richest get richer by the day, and the middle class can't even survive on the income of two badly paid jobs, we need a new system. Watch this film containing meaning of a lot of really smart people.
