Are you pro/cons basic income?

platoandaristotle

I am wondering what you thinks about basic income which is money all citizen in a country receive. MY OPINION: The point with basic income is everybody getting enough money to live a comfortable life and if the robots are taking over the jobs, the unemployment rate would increase making more people jobless. That can increase the poverty where the gap between employed and unemployed increases which makes a unfair society if many jobs replaces humans with robots. Another reasons I thinks b...

Immigration and CostAccording to Pew Research Center, roughly half of all illegal immigrants came to the United States legally via the usage of Visas and Border Crossing Cards. So at the onset, the wall is at max 50%...

Does Lincoln Deserve the Title "The GREAT Emancipator"?

ireneadler
platoandaristotle

While many have viewed Abraham Lincoln as an almost god-like figure to be revered as the man who freed the slaves, it has come to my attention that history has smoothed over many of Lincolns faults. Lincoln is shown, in some legitimate documents and letters that for much of the civil war he stated the main reason for war was to unite the country and had nothing to do with slavery. In other documents, he talks about not allowing the black population to associate with whites, hold any positions of...

Abraham Lincoln once said this about welfare given to those who were willing to live off the labors of others , " In all ages of the world, some have labored, and others have, without labor, enjoyed a large portion of the fruits. This is wrong, and should not continue." But continue, it has up to the present day. Aliens who manage to make it across America's borders are then free to reap the harvest of all that the welfare system provides without any efforts on their part to exert themselves to...
