UBI based on sales tax (see www.fairtax.org and consider different rate and prebate) answers most of these arguments. It also allows for using sales tax to pay for universal health care (if it's good enough for the troops, it's good enough for everyone), rather than insurance. Finally, using sales tax to eliminate the income tax code eliminates the majority of corruption in government and business, as well as freeing up billions of hours of human productivity for useful work and making it easier for people to start and maintain small businesses.

Sales tax is less regressive than what we have now, and it's MUCH less regressive than a dead planet.
