I understand the UBI/unemployment scheme is “fair” (the government must “make us whole”) and inevitable at this point. But I remain mistrustful. Problem, reaction, solution. The fact that the government WANTS everyone locked down, WANTS more bailouts, and WANTS to pay $1200 a head, plus $600 a week… and counting, smells fishy.
Siding with the government during a crisis is kind of how we’re lead to react. I’ll take the money for sure though! Gimme gimme!
