Hmmm as for my comment:
Last movie I saw in theaters was "Sorry to Bother You." I wasn't sure what to expect going in but it ended up being one of my favorite movies this year.

Didn't heard of that movie but after seeing the trailer this looks like a really cool movie!

Okay yes I believe universal basic income to be an important concept! Thanks for spreading it around the steem universe! UBI is one of the philosophies I adhere to.

Totally agree! I'm too a true UBI enthusiast!

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

Trying basic income is importand for humanity. There are a few projects that I know of already in Finland and also Germany Berlin for example. It is really difficult tho. It might work on steemit but iam a little sceptical when it comes to countries. We will see

We just need a country brave enough to try this and I hope and think this will be Finland! On paper there is literally no negative point to it.

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

...forced redistribution of wealth (theft) is morally indefensible.
State control over their populations.
Slaves to the state.
Free basic income is communistic control through the back door..

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/universal-basic-income-finland-useless-says-trade-union-a7571966.html

...just sayin'...

UBI doesn't redistribute wealth in a welfare state! It just guarantees a fair distribution of taxes to all people in the community.

...taxes are theft ( a forced redistribution of wealth)

.... how they are distributed is irrelevant.

It's like the bank robbers discussing the most equitable way of splitting their heist..

Looks like you do not live in a welfare state.

To call taxes theft is just not true in a welfare state and in general. Of course there are a bunch of taxes that are way to high or just not necessary but to call taxes in general theft is just not right

Theft = A coerced transfer of assets.

How is this not philosophically correct?

No one pays tax voluntarily - and if you don't pay, an authority penalizes you by asset forfeiture or prison.

How is this not theft - through threats of aggressive action against you, if you do not comply??

Yeah but still you are glad to use the infrastructure (roads, public transportation,...), healthcare, climate change prevention and many more.

As I said sure there are a bunch of taxes that are to high or not really necessary but many of them serve a purpose and you will get something back in return.

Thanks for the giveaway! Upvoted and resteemed

I was joining this experiment some days ago and I’m curious how it will go. Always recap the waterfall streaming image and the meaning behind. Sbi9 also started upvote my post through out the days plus I started to sponsor my closed friend into this. I don’t know why I started to care about your votes and my shares as well not like the other bots/ voting services. And the helps in Discord is very appreciated too. I wish I can do the same things to my communities some days later. Good Jobs and worth my FULL upvotes and rested. Happy Steemit Happy SBI! :)

I want to tell everyone that today is a fantastic day here in Norway. It is 30C outside and the sun is shining. I'll probably go out later today to go for a walk. I wish everyone a lovely day

Also a nice day here in Austria. Although the forecast said it is going to rain I can't see a single cloud on the blue sky today. Thanks, wish you too a lovely day.

OK a joke, ...
how an I resist the opportunity to share some humour. (Yes spelt the English way as I'm originally from Australia and I like to use that spelling, especially when playing scrabble against my Amercian wife @thehoneys).
Hello Triple word score

Before we get to the joke, did you know that laughter is good for your health...?
Yeah sure you've heard it, but do you really understand it?
When we laugh, experience joy, imaging something enjoyable, we actually increase our serotonin, dopamine and reduce cortisol(the stress hormone) in the body, we also get a boost in our immune system and have clearer and more creative thinking, so instead of an Apple a day keeps the doctor away, maybe we should be saying A laugh a day keeps the doctor at bay.

Even observing others smile, and laugh gives you these benefits.
So watch some regular comedy, share a laugh with friends and your life will get increasingly better.

Science:
Light travels faster than sound.
This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Relationships:
Love may be blind but marriage is a real eye-opener.

Irony:
Always remember you're unique just like everyone else.

And now for the joke/anecdote as promised...
its an oldy, but I'm sure new for many LOL

Ingenuity:
At the corner of a busy New your intersection a somewhat disheveled newsboy stood with a stack of papers. Waving 1 paper in the air he yelled, "Read all about it. Fifty people swindled! Fifty people swindled! You could be next". A curious man walked over, bought a paper, and quickly scanned the paper for the story then noticed the date. What he saw was yesterday's paper. The man said, "Hey, this is an old paper, where's the story about the big swindle?" The newsboy ignored him and went on calling out, "Read all about it. Fifty-one people swindled!"

Haha!

Wow thanks for your awesome comment!

Another little fact-trick: We can trick our brain to release happiness hormones by just simply smiling for about 60 seconds.

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

I too am excited about seeing universal basic income adopted worldwide. I'm sure there will be kinks but those can be creatively solved.

Thanks for this engagement-based contest, @elleok!

So today i asked for a raise at work, ive been working at a Ford dealership for about 5 months and was told that when i first started that there would be great opportunities to make more money....

So here i am asking for a review considering that im the only one that can make appointments and answer all the phone calls as well as i greet all the customers , take them to their service advisor. In between all that i move cars and trucks off the drive to the technician shops.
Ive never called in sick, never late for work. Always in fear of what would happen if i did... I am the only one that was trained for these duties and no one else knows how to work the appointment system 😢 and i would have double the work when i came back. So i work my tail off to please all our customers.

Our over all ratings are way up in the customer service but the CFO said that it will be a year before i get a raise . Omg im thinking now i know why my coworkers all just sit on their butts and play on the phones and don't care about their jobs.😮

Well my boss better think of something fast lol. Because im not a person that will let a company not care about me when i love my work and treat it as if it was my own.
Ill start looking for better soon 😉

Remember life is short there is no reason to let anyone treat you less then what your worth and take advantage of you. No job is worth being unhappy for. Im not one to stay and be miserable and underpaid.

Ok my rant is over haha. Good luck everyone 🌺

Remember life is short there is no reason to let anyone treat you less then what your worth and take advantage of you. No job is worth being unhappy for. Im not one to stay and be miserable and underpaid.

Exactly! I would recommend telling your boss exactly that! Just tell him how much you love your job and that you are passionate about it but still feel you earned a raise. And if he still says no maybe really search for another job. You owe him nothing!

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

Oh she knows, she got me to her dealership because of the same reason with a different dealership. I told her what the last manager was doing and underpaying and she said we will do you better. Smh ..only when i gave my two week notice did my old boss offer me more money, but like a fool i went to Ford thinking " ill get that pay soon, but with less shit" boy was i wrong haha. So the search starts and when I find something better ill give my notice.

I applaud anyone who wants to lift others up. Like you, I love the principal behind Steem Basic Income. It is a win-win type of a deal.
Now, we just need to make sure that everyone who does have shares upvotes all the posts at 100% to keep this boat afloat!

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

I sometimes struggle with the idea of completely free guaranteed income within countries. At least with SBI you have to post in order to receive the upvote.

Hmmmm... Sure this is quite tricky and of course there will be some bad apples exploiting that system. But when everybody basic needs are fulfilled people are able to fulfill there dreams, which in most cases would mean working their dream job resulting in them being more productive and happy.

Good luck! 👊

Thank you @elleok! What does it mean when our wallet says "Received 0.001 SBD from steembasicincome"?

You need to check the memo of the transaction. Usually this means you got sponsored and steembasicincome notifies you about that!

Thanks for taking part!

Good luck! 👊

Ooo thank you @elleok! 👊 It feels nice to be sponsored.

Nice initiative. Will stalk you with Gina. :D

Ugh. 72 hours. Hope I'm not late in joining this. :D

I'm hoping to turn my steemit blog posts into a venture that overtime will have a regular following. I write posts on steemit than I share them on Facebook, I have a page with 90,000 people so I can write on steemit than share it with an immediate audience, I hope this platform will be around for years to come, even if there wasn't a crypto amount available I would still use Steemit as a personal web page to share content on other social networking platforms. I am amazed at how helpful this community is, I have never been more alone than I was starting out on Steemit and camera here with literally no friends, so when I succeed It will be an incredible success story.

Are those my feet?
