Mr. Adams declares "one of the best and scariest ideas I've ever heard..." to be when depop comes the UBI recipients are first against the wall.

The presumption is that all UBI recipients would just lay back. It's like R. B. Fuller said about the GI Bill, if only one recipient changes the world you can't begrudge the ones who didn't.

It's just as likely some will aspire to more than subsistence and release intellectual property under the GPL license that transforms society.

Okay, the 'smarter than the smart people' joke was pretty good.
