Lovers of freedom should embrace the basic income guarantee

Sorry for the long break. My new blog on Secular Spiritualism deals with the Basic Income Guarantee, which is rapidly gaining in popularity these days. But it should not merely be celebrated by lovers of equality, it should be celebrated by lovers of freedom as well. Freedom is not just about money and taxes. It is about choice. When working and producing goods are a matter of choice, paying taxes becomes voluntary as well. One problem with the current system is that it only motivates people to work, but a basic income would motivate people to make the most of themselves.
