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.
It's possible that a society of educated people is likely to be more cultured and scientific-minded than one of non-graduates, and this should have positive externalities in the form of better political discourse and higher culture. There is, however, little evidence of this in practice.
