Joe Rogan and Sam Harris on universal basic income (UBI)
Good discussion of the inevitable: At some point due to automation and other factors there will be no more work so what then? UBI helps us to decouple own sense of self-worth with profitable work and allows us to define it much more humanely. Also discussed is the shift to renewable energy jobs, which dwarf fossil fuel jobs. Climate change has to be considered in such discussions.
