"Walmart perfected the softer version of this model in the 20th century. Move into a town, undercut the local merchants by selling items below cost, and put everyone else out of business. Then, as sole retailer and sole employer, set the prices and wages you want. So what if your workers have to go on welfare and food stamps.

Now, digital companies are accomplishing the same thing, only faster and more completely. Instead of merely rewriting the law like colonial corporations did or utilizing the power of capital like retail conglomerates do, digital companies are using code. Amazon’s control over the retail market and increasingly the production of the goods it sells, has created an automated wealth-extraction platform that the slave drivers who ran the Dutch East India Company couldn’t have even imagined."

Masser af brede påstande uden argumentation. Fx bliver det nærmest komisk med direkte modstridende pointer som:

Study after study shows that the added security [of UBI] actually enables people to take greater risks, become more entrepreneurial, or dedicate more time and energy to improving their communities.


Meanwhile, UBI also obviates the need for people to consider true alternatives to living lives as passive consumers.
