Amen brother. The only societies that function with UBI and no one ever having to work exist in science fiction and Star Trek (yes, I know that's redundant). UBI sounds like a good idea - like socialism, but it ignores the 80/20 universal rule - 80% of the work is typically done by 20% of a group.

Hunger is a great motivator.
