In this first episode of my Minor Matters series I look at The Together Party, a political party that wants to nationalise failing NGO’s and provide Universal Basic Income. While they don’t align with my desire for personal liberty they do bring some interesting ideas to the table.
To celebrate International Women’s Day and their Balance for Better theme I look at historical propaganda posters about women, women’s issues and socialism. People need to learn the socialist roots of International Women’s Day.
I look at a recent article from the BBC about the outcome of Finland’s failed experiment with Universal Basic Income. While it didn’t encourage people to find work it did make them happier and stress-free.
We look at the story about Panera Bread closing their last “Pay What You Can” restaurant, which marks the end of their failed experiment. This is another example of businesses virtue signalling and I ask wouldn’t it have been smarter to build something that could leave a legacy and continue to help people?
