I find it curious that FJG and UBI advocates are at odds with each other. The fact is that both are philosophically aligned and can be integrated under the actual new paradigm concept of Direct and Reciprocal Monetary Gifting. Furthermore, their purchasing power benefits are doubled by the additional and actual paradigm changing policy of a 50% Discount/Rebate policy at retail sale. UBI/Universal Dividend and FJG are basically palliative policies which do not directly deal with the REAL problem, namely the parasitical, dominating and monopolistic private banking system and its paradigm of Debt Only as the sole form and vehicle for the creation and distribution of money/credit.
Private banking and their monopolistic monetary and financial paradigm of Debt Only ARE THE PROBLEM. End that paradigm and their dominance with the policies of the new paradigm of Direct and Reciprocal Monetary Gifting (JG, UBI and a 50% Discount/Rebate policy at the point of retail sale. The fact is for-profit money creation and distribution is not a legitimate business model but an expensive parasite on the actual productive economy. No other business model is allowed to add an additional 50+% of costs post retail sale. Imagine going to the grocer and buying $100 worth of goods, then getting a phone call from them saying: “Oh, sorry, its necessary to charge you an additional $50 for those goods, please remit.” Retail sale is the terminal ending point of the entire economic/productive process where production becomes consumption. Integrate the new paradigm of Monetary Gifting into the debt based system and the private banks will become the horse shit picker uppers after the invention of the internal combustion engine.
