With all the talk lately of UBI's, government handouts, stimulus for made up bull#, people hoping for the death of the economy and the great reset, a
future where we sit content at home doing nothing while the government pays for your existence.
Anyone who wants this is insane. Period. I've taken government money four times in my life. I've been laid off and had to take unemployment for a
couple months twice. This money is not enough to live on and comes with a bunch of requirements that could get it taken away from you.
There was one day in particular I remember, I had the opportunity to get out and do some work for a day, it was above the table though so I had to
report it to ei. If I'd done that day of work, not only would I have made less money working than through ei, but I would have lost another day of ei
money. This is all money i'd paid into the system after years of working. This just incentivizes nothing but a single full time job, no independent
work, no helping one's self, no temp work to tide you over.
The other two times were different.
I was stupid when I was young and fell for the student loan scam, I spent most of my 20's paying for that mistake.
The other time was after I did finish school, a friend of mine and I ended up getting some government grants for a few years to do some research, our
data from the beginning was supposed to be made public. We'd spent a bunch of time, and money for our wages, creating a website and public database
where anyone could access our data. We ended up finding an endangered species in a place where it had never been found before, unfortunately it was in
an active mine site.
Within a week of telling our government funders, we were told to remove our website, remove our database and from that point forward our data would
only be available in a locked, paywalled government database, under threat of having our funding revoked. Despite part of the requirements of our
grant being that our data be made publicly available.
My point after all this rambling is, if you take government money, you put yourself under whatever requirements they want. You lose your freedom, your
independence and even the things you believe in.
You're forced to follow whatever rules and requirements they demand of you, which can change on a whim and you put yourself at their mercy.
Don't believe in this bull#. The government won't save you, they don't have your best interests in mind and humans were not meant to sit idle while
the government provides them a pittance so they can exist. Governments are meant to serve the public. This whole year has seen government enforcement
through the roof over every part of society. Some clearly insane people seem to think the future should be humanity relying on government handouts
while they live a lazy slothful life of nothing.
Don't give into this nonsense. We're living in a time where it's easier than ever for individuals to live independently, run a small business and
connect with customers all over the world.
The only thing stopping this is mass government, media and corporate bull# pushing a life of government funded servitude.
I mean we live in a world where for under $5000 a person can buy a 3d printer, a desktop CNC and a computer that will allow them to produce 90% of all
the cheap chinese bull# we buy.
# this future of government handouts, lockdowns, business closures and corporate dominance. Don't accept a UBI, stimulus bull# or anything else, use
all this # to empower yourself and fight this bull# any way you can.
Like these assholes keep saying, it's the great reset, fine, let's reset the world in a way that empowers humanity. Don't take the easy bull# way. Use
all this technology and other # they give us and empower yourself. That's the thing they're most worried about and why all this is happening.
It's up to us to not let it happen.
