There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
November by Walter de la Mare
Governments should pay a no-strings-attached cheque to each citizen
What do you think of this? Instead of worrying about managing myriad social welfare and unemployment payment schemes, the government should just give everyone money. No conditions. No questions. Everyone, rich or poor, employed or out of work would get the same amount of money. This would provide a path toward a new way of living: If people no longer had to worry about making ends meet, they could pursue the lives they want to live.
After all, what do you really want to do with your life? Are you doing what you really want to do? Whatever the answers, Staub suggests basic income is the means to achieve those goals.
