Yea, I wasn’t trying to be a huge prick over the math and I apologize for doing so, but the fact that most people who tend to support such a policy make the error and justify the program because the cost is so “low” turn the decimal into an egregious mistake that begins to inform other political and philosophical view points based on an incorrect starting point.

I suppose my next question would be, do you support a UBI at any cost? And why is “this automation different” from the automation of the past and actually increased the amount of jobs available?
