Anti Wage-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 657-658

With the exception of climate change, the most significant and most important change that I would pursue in Parliament is the change in the way that income support is delivered. Instead of the current inefficient hodge-podge of programmes that stigmatize users and can often discourage moves to independence, I would promote a guaranteed livable income which explicitly recognizes our commitment to deliver the basic necessities to every Canadian. From this base, all Canadians would have an incentive to work to their ability in order to build a better life for themselves and their families.
We are spending a lot of money to keep people in poverty. It is not only morally wrong, it is stupid too.
Adriana Mugnatto-Hamu,
Green Party Candidate
For Toronto-Danforth

If you understand the true value and magnitude of technology, then you should understand there is no need for poverty, recessions, depressions, homelessness, unemployment, underemployment, deficits and the lack of healthcare. There is no need for the payment of bank interest, there is no need for taxes of any kind and there is no need to saddle our children with our debt and on and on. That means we are doing everything wrong. I understand that’s hard for a great many of us to believe. We are use to letting our government and big business do our thinking for us, so I will keep it very simple. For the most part, our technology has changed our world from a world of scarcity to a world of abundance. That means our old limitations don’t exist. We live in a totally different but opposite paradigm. If we persist in our old ways, we are dead.
