Wosdom Teeth, like the other Wosdom books (which can be read in any order), offers provocative opinions in order to encourage readers to think beyond the politically-correct prejudices of the society they live in.
"I view most other people as lower lifeforms. This is not out of prejudice or out of arrogance, but out of experience. Not for a minute does this mean that I assume the worst and treat people badly from the outset. In fact, I make a point of treating people with the utmost decency, but I am not naive and I refuse to be blind or indifferent to the uncomfortable reality that most people are not intelligent, alert, thinking human beings. The intelligent, decent person is the very rare exception in the cesspit of human existence."
Warning: You might find this fiction book rather unsettling. It contains strong language and potentially offensive opinions throughout.
Unfortunately, debates about the basic income are often quickly closed down by criticisms that rely on false or misleading assertions - and which often arise out of a lack of understanding of some fairly basic economics. This book aims to expose the flaws in these criticisms and explain, in plain English, the huge potential benefits of a basic income system, how it could easily be afforded and how it might best be introduced.
The opportunity to introduce a basic income is a fantastic opportunity to transform our society for the better. It is an opportunity we should consider most carefully.
