This one seems to imply knowledge of a round earth...

 It took them a long time to get round the world; they had children, and they grew old, and then their children also grew old, until at last the parents were so old that they could not walk, but the children led them.

But then children began to be born, and men grew to be very many on the earth. They knew nothing of death in those days, a long, long time ago, and grew to be very old. At last they could not walk, but went blind, and could not lie down.

Neither did they know the sun, but lived in the dark. No day ever dawned. Only inside their houses was there ever light, and they burned water in their lamps, for in those days water would burn.

But these men who did not know how to die, they grew to be too many, and crowded the earth. And then there came a mighty flood from the sea. Many were drowned, and men grew fewer. We can still see marks of that great flood, on the high hill-tops, where mussel shells may often be found.

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

This kind of stuff is exactly what I've been looking for.

Thanks for posting all this!

I saw this front paged on reddit last night - I was surprised - a lot of the comments were quite angry and disgusted. At least most of the normies still have something resembling a soul, I suppose.

The first two posts about it - on news and (somewhere else on Reddit) were flat out deleted - and as ceddit shows - of 10,000 comments a HUGE percentage are censored by mods.

I think the only reason they left the post up there, was to avoid the bombardment that would start if they deleted it again.

I love how people on reddit were trying to spin it like it was still racist...

"It IS because of racism though, no white man would help him fake it!"

Of course there is a strict hiring process - and no, not all have problems from the war - but truth be told, a high percentage do - and they are the one's having problems finding jobs it would seem.

At least one of them is going to slip through the hiring process - seeing as how there aren't that many solid opportunities for these people.

Don't get me wrong, I'm on the soldier's side in this - kids can be dicks.

It's just a mathematical probability/inevitability of putting an armed person in a school.

Finland's result on its UBI experiment: people don't shirk work. And it increases trust, health & wellbeing by Orangutan in BasicIncome

Exactly - it can be "utopian" or a trap - if implemented today by the people in charge, it'll be a damn trap.

Besides, before even considering UBI, (good people) would have to figure out what a dollar is worth anymore, a country needs to accurately get its M0, M1, M2, M3 sorted the fuck out and figure out a replacement for GDP - then it can start implementing policy.

Until then, obligatory

Truthfully, I like the idea - I really do - people deserve some help after everything they've been through last 19 years - but it just won't work long-term within the frame work of Darwinian Capitalism.

Lots of articles also talking about how it isn't as great as it seems. There hasn't been enough time to analyze the results, plus the test wasn't long-term enough. Plus the test's publicity and attention may have staved off some of the ill effects - in hopes it happening, let me explain:

In the end the UBI level off at 1$ more than poverty and all the prices will increase, because of a "market flush with cash".

5$ buys you 5, 1$ items.

Suddenly everyone has 6 dollars, an increase of 20%. What are the odds business will hike prices 25% minimum? Quite good I would say - especially for items that people MUST have: food, medicine, etc.

5$, 5, 1$ items 6$, 4, 1.25$ items

As such your 5$ that bought you 5 items, turns into 6$ buying you 4 items.

Now keep in mind this kind of "leap stage" from 5 items to 4, may not occur EVERY "minimum wealth increase" (be it UBI or min. wage increase, etc), but it WILL happen inevitably. Anyone who has seen min-wage increase in their area can attest to this.

Until inflation and unregulated mark up are addressed, this will only lead to more severe exploitation of the population for the profit of "business", just like everything else in this world.

To make it appear good, you probably won't see any of the price increase scam in this experiment (on purpose) - let it become "law" and see how fast that changes, when business is free to fuck you, 21st century style.

I'll eat my own beard if I'm wrong.
