You ask, “ What would you do with an extra $1,000 per month? I know what I would do. What new choices would you make? Think about it. Visualize it.”

I am thinking about it, but at the same time, I am thinking of where the $1,000 comes from. How can we use a UBI to make some people more free while at the same time not having some people be less free — the people who are paying the $1,000 that I get?

As someone who is fundamentally a supporter of UBI, I have my own answer, but rather than giving you my answer, I would like to ask, what is yours? I think any discussion of UBI is incomplete without at least a reference to that piece of the picture.
