  • Hello? Douglas Lain yeah I've been meaning to talk to you

  • Look, it's 2022 . I've got my thousand dollars a month UBI I don't really know

  • what I need you for. No no no no. I've got a robot doing my job now.

  • It's brilliant. I don't have to do this stupid show anymore.

  • Look, anyway buddy. I got a stuff to do so I'm gonna just let you go. Peace out.

  • Hey there obsolete leftist humanoids. It's your borg: Robo-Comrade 9000. Today I'm

  • going to explain to you how UBU saved the world. Now let us discuss how

  • UBI can bring our civilization to glory. Satellite uplink activated. Abolish

  • the welfare systems. Smash wages. Kill the proletarian humanoids. All Hail God

  • Emporer Besos. Besos Besos Besos Yikes! Maybe I better call Doug

  • Looks like this UBI has a few kinks that need to be worked out first.

  • What the fuck is Yang Gang. Yang Gang is a grassroots internet movement that

  • supports Democratic candidate Andrew Yang in his 2020 presidential bid in the US

  • He's managed to win over support from a whole range of political camps:

  • Disappointed Trump supporters Alt-Right dickheads, liberals and even some real leftists.

  • Yang is offering $1,000 a month to any American

  • citizen over the age of 18 starting in January 2021.

  • So the freedom dividend is my flagship policy where every American adult receives $1,000 a month free and

  • clear starting at age 18 and what this would enable America to do is just pay

  • our bills for one thing because so many of us are having trouble with that who

  • Who is this guy? Yang is a New York tech entrepreneur.

  • He went to an Ivy League law school he was CEO from Manhattan prep and founder of

  • venture for America essentially he's capitalist swine.

  • UBI goes under a whole lot of different names the universal basic income, guaranteed unconditional income,

  • citizens income. Whatever. Although there's a load of different ways

  • it can be implemented the general idea is basically the same every time the

  • government pays out every citizen a set amount of money once a month regardless

  • of their financial situation. A lot of talk in recent decades has been

  • related to the idea that AI and automation means that robots are taking

  • other jobs The purpose the Yang's UBI is to try and save

  • capitalism when it's totally in crisis and it's really unpopular.

  • The Industrial Revolution which people cite as the precursor to what we're going through

  • there were mass riots in the industrial revolution that killed dozens of people

  • caused billions of dollars worth of damage Labor Day is a holiday today

  • because of those riots. Yang understands that capitalism is in danger of being

  • overthrown by ordinary working people and he wants to protect it but buying

  • off the workers that are most likely to fight back from the perspective of

  • protecting capital it's a pretty good plan too.

  • Not gonna lie fam, there is something viscerally appealing about being offered straight cash from a politician

  • I guess the reason it pretty much appeals to everyone is that it

  • solves a fundam ental problem that we all have.

  • Support for NEETBUX is both ironic and honor ironic people aren't generally stupid no matter

  • what side of the political spectrum they sit on everyone kind of pretty much

  • acknowledges that the situation is fucked and it's getting worse every day

  • which is the better choice everything getting worse and worse every day or

  • everything getting worse and worse every day plus $1,000. Cha-ching!!!

  • So what about the MAGA Chuds? A lot of Trump supporters are pretty pissed

  • off but he couldn't pull off his racist wall agenda and win even a symbolic

  • victory for his misguided fan base in fairness to Yang he understands the

  • material basis for a lot of work is voting for Trump and although he blames

  • automation instead of capitalism more generally he actually addresses the

  • issue in a way that is distinct from Democrats usual neoliberal, judgemental identity politics shtick.

  • Donald Trump wins the election in 2016 and for whatever

  • reason in my opinion the media's is not being honest about all the economic

  • drivers they're blaming racism Russia Facebook the FBI and if

  • you look at the voter district data there's a straight line up between the

  • adoption of industrial robots in that voting district and the movement towards

  • Trump Trump's talk of bringing back jobs and keeping out immigrants all amounted

  • to pretty much nothing the main community that once supported

  • him is kind of bored of them now #YangGang has mainstream appeal and is

  • literally $1,000 a month. It's a policy that even those gormless fucks can

  • relate to but where the Bernie Bros in all of this? Let's be honest. Yang is

  • younger sexier and his ideas come across as a bit more interesting and futuristic

  • than Bernie Sanders traditional social democratic platform . While his base is

  • still strong he's kind of at risk of losing support to this more simplified

  • idea. Then there's our glorious comrades on the Left where did they stand on

  • securing the bag? Do they like it? Hell yeah! A thousand bucks a month means

  • less time it's been working more time building the revolution. Boom!

  • There's nothing particularly leftist about turning down money that we can use to

  • fight the power I'm sure some of you are wondering what if any the possible

  • drawbacks of UBI are? I'm gonna tell you. Although it's been tested in some parts

  • of the world it's not really clear whether it would cause an explosive

  • inflation problem or not. I'm not gonna lie to you fam, UBI doesn't cancel out

  • the shittyness of capitalism. Think about it this way if we had a guaranteed

  • $1,000 a month what's gonna stop our landlords from jacking up our rent to

  • cream off the top of that? And what's gonna stop our employers from paying us

  • less because they know they can? Fucking parasites. Even worse than this although

  • Yang is initially promising not to take welfare from people claiming more than

  • $1,000 a month traditionally ubi has been advocated by

  • people who want to see the end of the welfare state Yang is a pro-capitalist

  • businessman. Ultimately his loyalties are gonna lie with the markets and the capitalist class.

  • Well I'm a CEO and businessperson and I'll tell you that

  • putting money into people's hands it's good for business it's good for the

  • economy and it's good for markets this is not socialism this is where this is

  • capitalism where income doesn't start at zero .

  • So where's the Spicy Take in all of this?

  • this let me tell you how we should go down: As leftists we should argue in

  • favor of UBI. On its own it's not particularly damaging and it's an

  • extremely popular demand so we'd be really stupid not to. UBI under socialism

  • would be way different though. We should be demanding a bag a month. Give me that bag.

  • We should be demanding rent controls so that our landlords can't fuck us over in the short term.

  • W e should be building mass public housing so that we have our own

  • house. We should have universal health care so

  • we don't fucking die for no reason when we're supposed to be out spending our

  • #NeetBucks Fully free education so we can learn

  • whatever the fuck we want Universal Child Care so we don't have to spend all

  • day at home with our ugly ass kids. It couldn't hurt to invest in mass

  • Public Works and renewable energy you know so our whole planet doesn't become

  • totally unsustainable and we die in an environmental apocalypse

  • This is basic shit family. It would make life less sucky overall and it's pretty hard to

  • argue with so if you're at work and one of your comrades our colleagues brings

  • up behind #pussybux campaign let your comrade know that we can ask for so much

  • more shit we can demand more If your friends are DSA supporters and they

  • love Bernie tell him to get that old man on board with securing the bag.

  • There's no reason not to give in to such a universally popular demand.

  • securing the bag is great and all but let's not be cowards about it. Let's secure the big bag.

  • Ya'll already know what I'm gonna say let's transform this planet into the

  • Fully Automated Luxury Gay Space Communist utopia that we all deserve and

  • if the capitalist class try and stop us? I don't fuckin know we can kill 'em or whatever.

  • #YangGang2020 ? More like #BangBang2020.

  • If robots are going to abolish

  • most kinds of labor for humans then we can't rely on the mindless

  • profit-seeking capitalist system to deliver the fruits of automation fairly to everyone

  • Our task now is to imagine and begin building a world free from the

  • anxieties of capitalist social relations. A world where automation takes care of

  • the most degrading boring and difficult jobs so that human creativity is free to

  • flourish unshackled by our base material needs.

  • No no look I know it was in the

  • script but we didn't vaguely threaten revolutionary violence. You know after

  • what happened to The Serfs and with YouTube clamping down on the left or

  • whatever we just left it out. it was all it was all very subtle. #KillYourBoss #KillYourLandlord

  • check out the new sign big shout out to Tabasko Sweet for inspiring us with

  • his old-school, Cheap Thrills vibe! Quick shout out to Eugene from Eastern Marsh Lands.

  • for this cool spinning logo. Check out their channel on YouTube for

  • some good takes and for some lovely comrades. Like, Subscribe and ring that

  • bell like a capitalist's neck. Oh and until my bag comes in keep those

  • communist dollars flowing. The link for the Patreon is in the descriptio.

  • Hit me up on Twitter @BadmanMassive. I have barely any

  • followers so that would be pretty cool.

  • And as always... Stay Woke, Roll Safe & Keep It Spicy!
