The enemy does this thing, where they drop little nuggets of truth from their plan into the narrative in order to get people softened up on their idea. It’s called Predictive Programming. With Predictive Programming, it isn’t their goal to get you to accept their plan, it is simply their goal to make their plan part of normal conversation. To shift the Overton Window. And over time people will eventually accept their idea more and more. They do this with everything, and have been for decades and centuries. Once you know how to spot it, you’ll see it everywhere.
And I’ve been seeing “Universal Basic Income” pop up into almost every article I’ve read on these Stimulus packages that have been passed. Universal Basic Income is essentially what these Stimulus checks are, except they would come on a monthly basis. Free money. Who doesn’t want free money? Except, like my grandpa used to say, there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.
What harm could come from providing people with a UBI? What harm was there in a house made of candy deep in the woods? Like a drug dealer, the plan is to get people dependent on the UBI, and then use it as a means of control. You can expect there to be a no-strings-attached attitude from the government concerning UBI right up until our economy has absorbed UBI and made adjustments to prices and wages accordingly. Then the witch will bar the door to the candy house.
All of a sudden there will be strings attached. You will be expected to qualify for UBI by agreeing to certain things.
“Oh, you want to homeschool your kids? That’s fine, but you will no longer qualify for UBI.”
“Oh, you want to own firearms? That’s fine, but you will no longer qualify for UBI.”
“Oh, you want to grow your own food? That’s fine, but you will no longer qualify for UBI.”
“Oh, you don’t want this vaccine? That’s fine, but you will no longer qualify for UBI.”
If you want to know how UBI will be treated with people, you need look no further than how the Federal Government has treated the States with Federal Funds.
My suggestion? Sure, take all the “free” money that you can, but use it to reduce your debt and make yourself as self-sustaining as possible. Grow your own food where you can. If you can’t grow much, create co-ops with your friends and neighbors and exchange goods. Take note of the disposable goods in your life and break away from the consumer cycle. For instance, get a good straight razor and use it. Properly maintained it will last 50 years. Catalogue your spending and learn to live on less — so that when the time comes, you can tell the government to choke on their UBI.
