Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, a multi-billionaire, is now in favor of  ‘Universal Basic Income’ for everyone. Where does the money come from? Today, this is no problem. Our Central Banks can merely type numbers into cyberspace (the computer screen) and magically our money appears as an official currency! Does Mark understand our monetary system? I doubt it! Why not give everyone a Universal Basic Income of say $1,500/month or such…says Mark. This would promote security and purpose among all millennials (Zuckerberg is 33 years of age) and allow this group (and everyone) to focus on other creative activities. All this sounds reasonable and good but is it WISE? Does Mark understand human nature and history?

Giving income to everyone may sound wise to those who do not understand history and human nature, but it is seriously ‘unwise’ to me. Why? What purpose does money have if we just give everyone virtual digits (today’s money) and assume that these $trillions will better humanity. Giving some 5 billion humans a universal basic income will create some benefits (short-term) but longer term this will create dependency, huge inflation, price distortions, disparities of wealth, and many unwise creations (which will damage humanity and also the individual). Will the 5 billion receiving this Universal Basic Income use these $$$ (or equivalent) exclusively to further global community benefits or will these $$$ be used also for drugs, alcohol, and over indulgence (the negatives of human nature)?

Human nature has not changed since Adam and Eve and this means that making people ‘dependent’ upon our Central Banks (for these digits called money) will have more detrimental effects than positive effects IMO. Money created from nothing and given out as a ‘universal’ benefit will not lead to progress IMO. But Mark Zuckerberg may not be a student of human nature or economics. His intentions are good but the results from this action will likely be grossly detrimental to the individual and to humanity as a whole. Responsibility and discipline come from working for what one receives. Mere hand-outs and entitlements lead to dependency and a form of communal Socialism/Communism. But Mark may not see this deeper vision which history has taught us.

What we need now is for the wealthy to get themselves educated on history, religion, philosophy, and economics. A 33-year-old millennial should not be expected to understand human history automatically. Mark is the same age as Kim Jong-un of North Korea. Will Kim and Mark work together for a better world? That would be a positive outcome. Maybe Facebook could expand into North Korea and promote social interconnections which would lead to peace. Give this some thought, Mark, and drop this idea of a Universal Basic Income for everyone. This idea is grossly unjust and will not work! That is my point-of-view! I am:

You can learn more about the mindset of Mark Zuckerberg in the following videos and images:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is now jumping in on the recent avalanche of pro-global government “Agenda 2030” propaganda and everything he has to say is perfectly in line with the opening mission statement of the recent Agenda 2030 new world order declaration.

This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.

My Comment: Mr. Mark Z. does not realize that his vision leads to group-think, hierarchical control over people, disincentives for work, dependency on the elites, and a promotion of the EASY WAY for solving human problems. Mark desires that everyone acquire a ‘purpose’ for life. Purpose, says Mark, creates true happiness. His vision is to create the EASY path for progress. This sounds great to those who lack wisdom and an understanding of human nature…it is understandable for a person like Mark (who was born in 1984 and has not experienced any real hardships in acquiring his billions). Creating a sense of purpose for others (Mark’s goal) does not emerge by mere GIVING money to people. His WISDOM is lacking and this is why Mark needs education in economics, history, philosophy, and religion. Mark thinks his vision is right for his generation and our world. He wants to do good but life is much more than ‘good intentions’. That is my comments to Mark’s desire to create a ‘higher purpose’ in others and a gift of money (with no work effort). It will not work to create a better WORLD or a better individual. Teach a man to fish and I have a friend for life…but give a man a fish for nothing and I encourage selfishness and sloth! Many of his ideas I would support, but his idea of a Universal Basic Income is not one of them!

Image result for Mark Zuckerberg likes Agenda 2030Utopia can not arrive via give-aways and via hierarchical mandates from a centralized group-think political institution! Mark Zuckerberg does not discern these realities. His support for the easy way can not work longer-term. Give this some reflection!
