Politics follows culture. If Universal Basic Income doesn't follow robots taking all the jobs, then it will be something no-one has thought of yet. Probably block-chain based.

The solution won't be from government; it will be from the Open Software Foundation and the Maker movement and people like Eben Moglen and Lawrence Lessig. It will unleash a wave of creativity that would make Bucky Fuller proud. Remember what he said about the G.I Bill.
