I always love listening to the stunningly beautiful Sorelle Amore via her YouTube channel where she proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that she is way more than a pretty face. An extremely successful investor and entrepreneur and one of the few remaining fearless journalists exposing the flaws, threats and dangers of the world we live in specifically in relation to the protection of our assets, wealth and our goal of becoming financially independent and free.
This particular video entitled ‘The Case Against Basic Universal Income’ gave a very clear explanation of both what it is and why we should not accept it. As a person born and bred in the West I couldn’t agree more with her words but then it dawned on me that despite not being a high income 6 digit employee or entrepreneur never mind possessing that millionaire status I still belong to a privileged minority group of people on this planet as a simple working class tradesman. There is still another huge percentage of the global population that literally have to be thankful if they can earn a few dollars a day with an equal group not even having that privilege, despite their desire and willingness to work. If I were to stand, walk and work in their shoes for a day or two, seeing the world through their eyes, how would I view this whole concept of ‘Universal Basic Income’?
Well it’s partially answered in the comment I posted under that specific video which I also decided to use as the bases for this blog;
“The issue is the decades of prosperity that we in the Western world enjoyed at the labour and cost of billions in the developing countries that had to work like slaves just to be able to eat for that day and we had very little moral issues with the injustice of it.
We did not want to pay the real prices for their goods and services so we chose Amazon and Walmart instead of Fair trade and Oxfam. We wanted to travel to the best resorts in these third world countries, all in full option, gorging ourselves everyday when we knew that the staff working at these resorts earned next to nothing only being able to afford a fraction of what we left on our boards due to our bloated stomachs.
The things that we view as infringement of our basic fundamental human rights such as privacy and freedom to travel are of little to no concern to this group and would view universal income as a God send. Never having to worry again about being able to afford that next meal for the day for both themselves and their family.
This is the segment of the global population that the new world order can easily target with their universal income ideology to get that majority needed to succeed in getting it successfully kicked started.
I am not saying it’s wrong or right agreeing or disagreeing with its concept and absolute control over our lives but the fact still remains that we as a minority of the world population have enjoyed decades of being somewhat economically privileged and secure in sharp contrast with them and now it’s their turn.”

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent site!
Thank you Frank for your valuable input and taking the time in the first place in reading my blog.
