Face Book founder, Mark Zuckerberg, wishes to set government up as the dispenser of a “universal basic income” for all Americans.
There are major problems with Zuckerberg’s grand idea:
- It would impose another budget ballooning, ‘means-tested,’ free money giveaway, hastening America’s slide toward the fiscal cliff.
- It would create greater dependence on government.
- It would do little, if anything, to reduce debt at the family level, and it would do virtually nothing to improve America’s overall massive debt profile.
- It would do nothing to advance the cause of economic liberty.
The potential presidential candidate suggested “we should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” But who is going to pay for this? ZeroHedge, May 26, 2017
Zuckerberg’s plan would put America on track for total government economic control over citizens, with eventual far-reaching consequences, inimical to freedom and liberty.
“Economic control is not merely control of a sector of human life which can be separated from the rest; it is the control of the means for all our ends. And whoever has sole control of the means must also determine which ends are to be served, which values are to be rates higher and which lower, in short, what men should believe and strive for.” – Friedrich August von Hayek, Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences – 1974
There is a far superior plan offers the following advantages:
- The Leviticus 25 Plan is NOT another ‘means-tested’ free money giveaway. It treats all U.S. citizens equally.
- It pays for itself over a 10-15 year period.
- It would generate powerful economic growth by redirecting trillions of dollars from debt service to discretionary spending/saving.
- It promotes self-reliance and less dependence on government entitlement programs and social welfare.
- It provides for massive debt reduction at the family level, and it would vastly improve America’s overall massive debt profile – including $1 trillion budget surpluses each of the first five years.
- The Leviticus 25 Plan advance the cause of economic liberty for all Americans
