Freedom Is Being Swapped by the Ignorant for a Little Bit of Money

This Week in the News

This week on Survival Saturday, what it all adds up to is that the net is closing around us. Freedom isn’t being lost – it’s being swapped for a little bit of money by people who don’t realize that it’s beyond price.

American dependency on the state is at a record high and Zuckerberg wants to make it even higher.

236 million welfare payouts are now made each month in America. (Some people receive more than one type of payment, so that doesn’t mean there are that many individual recipients.) It’s estimated that more than 100 million people are dependent on the state to survive.

How far down this road do we have to go before people start calling it “socialism”?

As I was writing this, I was reminded of one of Benjamin Franklin’s most famous quotes…

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”

In our country today, many politicians have discovered that one of the best ways to win elections is to promise the voters as much free stuff as possible. This is one of the primary reasons why Bernie Sanders did so well. Young people loved his socialist policies, and he received more votes from Millennials in the primaries and caucuses than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton combined.

As older generations of Americans continue to die off, the Millennials will just become even more powerful politically. And considering the fact that they are far more liberal than other generations, that is a very alarming prospect… (source)

And this is the tip of the iceberg. I’ve written before of my concerns about the Universal Basic Income.

But what would the real result of a Universal Basic Income be?

Feudalism. Serfdom. Enslavement.

UBI would fast track us back to the feudalism of the Middle Ages. Sure, we’d be living in slick, modern micro-efficiencies instead of shacks. We’d have some kind of modern job instead of raising sheep for the lord of the manor.

But, in the end, we wouldn’t actually own anything because private property would be abolished for all but the ruling class. We’d no longer have the ability to get ahead in life. Our courses would be set for us and veering off of those courses would be harshly discouraged.

People will be completely dependent on the government and ruling class for every necessity: food, shelter, water, clothing. What better way to assert control than to make compliance necessary for survival? (source)

With that in mind, is anyone at all surprised that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook and potential presidential candidate of 2020, is all for it? In his commencement speech to Harvard grads, whom you would think would be ready to get out there and take the world by the tail (okay, probably not with the indoctrination, but in theory), Zuckerberg told them he thought they should all just get a “cushion.”

“Every generation expands its definition of equality. Now it’s time for our generation to define a new social contract,” Zuckerberg said during his speech. “We should have a society that measures progress not by economic metrics like GDP but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful. We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.”
