Somewhat agree but even if it's there that still doesn't answer my question of where it will come from. I have little to no faith in our politicians but in order to fund a UBI, the books would need to be rebalanced and if it came, at say, by doubling the income tax I most certainly wouldn't be for it. However, if it was achieved by forcing multi-national corporations to pay their fair share of tax, yes apple I am looking at you (only paying 1% in Australia), then sure I am all for it.
However what I see in most countries now is a massive shortfall, just look at the US debt, it's staggering to the point that some commentators are claiming it's not far away from a collapse. IIn order for UBI to be initiated, it would take a YUGE shift in how the US operates and spends it's money... YUGE!
