I repeat myself alot on this. I think the important strategy is the combination of UBI with sales tax in order to do several things: establish the basic minimum worth of all citizens as citizens, active participants and if nothing else; potential future contributors to their places, while also establishing that consumption is to be discouraged and inflation moderated by reducing resource waste and encouraging localized economics (even if it simply encourages black markets and barter to avoid the tax).

Trying to establish UBI under the current fanatical consumptionism is folly.
