thank you for your swift reply.
As you can see I am also struggling with the idea of basic income.
Compare it to the "safe jobs" of the past, where the broad consensus with

Nevertheless, it seems that solving the economical and solving the
ecological crisis are mostly seen as two independent things.
Only if we can show the economic power of the commons we might be able
to achieve something.
My friend Joseph Smyth had some thoughts on this that might be relevant:
