A Universal Income Might be a Great Force for Christians

Of course, universal income is an ideal place for Christians to support our great Testament “Love God first, and like unto this, Love one another.” Jesus would have us all maintain basic income for everyone thereby allowing an industry to forge ahead with research and development of such areas as robotics, and it would maintain food for even the poorest families. In addition, basic foodstuffs would be available to everyone for free thereby to unto others as all do unto ourselves, maintaining the Golden Rule. Food would be allowed at a maximum price such that everyone would be able to afford it. All these implementations are Christian as the Early Christian Church maintained for its peoples, Gentile (most of the world) and Jew alike. No one would go hungry and thereby the basic health needs would be covered. The entire program might include health care for all, or a cap on charges for health care. We would eliminate food-related disability immediately. Everyone would have discretionary money, money for homes and recreation eliminating welfare programs which have never worked.

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores. I am an ordinary man writing for because I want to write and because my education prepared me to write; BA English lit, MA English, EdS higher education, and MFA creative writing, free verse poetry and essays. Blogs are an answer to high-priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to self-publish his first 1000 copies of the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass because in 1855 poetry did not sell. Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
