Basic income may well prove to be the best tool to preserve our capitalist system. But first, progressive politicians need to educate the public that austerity is the problem, not the solution.
For the first time in history, people have the real prospect of no longer having to work long hours in boring, repetitive and physically debilitating jobs to meet basic needs. We will have more time to spend interacting with each other, caring for each other.
