Re: Quick Thought to help bring in money for Asgardia ¶
"Job" was intended in the context of employment. It might of even been used in that context during the extent of the paragraph. Automation is increasing, but I don't see it evolving to the point of entirely rendering manual procedure obsolete. Almost, but not entirely. There are some tasks humans are naturally better suited to. Technically, staring at a wall is still doing something, very astute. Have you considered applying to MENSA? I was thinking of something a little more proactive however. And there is plenty of it to be done. All it would take in such a senario is the inclination. The precise phrasing used in "no job, no money, and nothing to do" is not mine. If you did not gather by the tone of the paragraph, I do not believe that condition to be possible, in such a senario.
Indeed, having all you need would indeed remove the requirements for fiction based resources that one could intentionally impose scarcity upon in order to generate perceived value. That was kind of a key point, reiterated multiple times across multiple posts. I thought that was quite clear. Maybe I should of used a larger font?
I'm aware of the research involved with UBI - This could be why I had specifically mentioned it as a viable solution to the "mass job loss". I also agree it's unlikely that UBI would be "squandered", but responsibility isn't something humans are entirely famous for, and there's always one... hence: " The only possible way this should insufficient enough is if they are irresponsible with it ". Attempting to rob me at a convenience store is an amusing concept. It's assuredly not going to end the way it's predicted. Just because I can compose an eloquent sentence and have been educated don't let that deceive you into thinking I fail to contain an enhanced capacity for violence. I know the streets well, and can assure you I've already dealt with worse. Lets pretend by "you" that you didn't mean me specifically. Let us further pretend that the intended victim is a muppet that would actually conform, and the attempt is successful. By the time Asgardia is actually able to support a population(before this, they should be the responsibility of the nation in which they currently reside) - a few experimental projects aside - then this will be in the stars. Most likely a (collection of) station(s) and ship(s). It's not as if they will have anywhere to run, or hide. There will be consequences(yet undecided, but I believe there will be a part of the legal system to deal with such. AFAIK this is trending towards an educational response). Between these consequences, and understanding the failure to manage their resources effectively has lead to them being placed into a position wherin they are required to resort to crime to survive - especially in such a society - it might encourage them to make a better attempt with next months funds. This is not a problem I would predict to be prevalent.
Ty for the SBE explaination, tho Lloyd defined it as "service based" I personally would subscribe more readily to the sharing based model. On the subject of Lloyd, he does seem overly sensitive. Mayhaps it's time he changed his tampon. I'm unable to define anything "hostile" within my content. The closest I can surmise is my distaste for the principles that have lead to the unsavoury conditions arising in the first place have been misinterpreted as distaste for him, or his ideas. I'm unable to ascertain what he claims I've "twisted" or "implied". I would suggest that this stems from a misunderstanding of the systems of topic.
I do make more than reasonable attempts to make myself clear. I cannot be held responsible for a failure in understanding from a third party.
On the subject of failure in understanding, many interpret my instinct to seek flaws to be detrimental. It's my systems analyst side shining through. If you want something to succeed, you must first identify and resolve points of failure. Then you can build something that works. OOTB. In efforts to try and remain constructive, where possible I attempt to offer viable alternates and or education on why I believe it to be unwise. I see there's little more I can do, and that does far less damage than saying nothing.
