The one before this was longer and more difficult to read. It was a cross-section of many philosophies, more introspective, much more complex... but, as I never got support from the inner circle of my friends, who were unable to understand it or unwilling to read it, it never got out. That had a quite negative influence on me, as I felt too insecure to even ...

Basic Income and Funding - Part 2 http://www.grisanik.com/blog/basic-income-and-funding---part-2/ Before I continue the list I have started in the previous post, it is important to add that the federal budget does not need to be the only source of UBI funding. The majority of the wealth on the planet comes from the following: securities and commodities (stocks, currencies, gold, silver, bonds...) dividend income royalties (music, books, manuscripts, computer software, patents...) interest income (bank, insurance, pension...) property income (asserts, rent, development...) If we could transfer a portion of that wealth to the public (private-social) ownership, we could significantly decrease pressure of the UBI costs, which is, in current draft models, solely relying ...

Basic Income and Population http://www.grisanik.com/blog/basic-income-and-population/ A frequently asked question regarding Universal Basic Income is whether free money is going to cause another population explosion, further burdening an already dangerously overpopulated planet?

How to Ruin Your Book Sales With the Wrong Title http://www.grisanik.com/blog/how-to-ruin-your-book-sales-with-the-wrong-title/ If you Google “how to choose a good book title,” you will get lots of articles on how to create one. Among them, you will truly find lots of natural advice, like brainstorming ideas, as if that was not obvious enough. Then, the advice will continue with “make the title catchy, exciting, and easy to remember,” like you did not want to do that in the first place!? All this advice sounds very profound, the same as if someone said, “If you want to sell the book, you must write something good,” or, “If you want to win, you must not lose.” Bloody fantastic! Brilliant! What a profoundly smart thing to say. I bet you wish you could find that person and punch him in ...

Nuclear War Explained http://www.grisanik.com/blog/nuclear-war-explained/ In the post “Abandon All Hope of Surviving a New World War” , in a somewhat preaching like manner, I concluded the following: “If Nuclear War happens, not a single human will survive.” The idea behind this statement is that, when you know there is zero chance to survive - unless you are the suicidal type - you will probably abandon the idea of waging and voting for a ...

What is Basic Income? http://www.grisanik.com/blog/what-is-basic-income/ Also called Universal Basic Income (UBI) is rather simple but quite powerful idea. It is a form of social security system or welfare in which all people of one country receive an equal monthly pay check (as a human right), just for being alive, without a need to do any work in return. The amount of money each citizen receives is enough to cover only basic needs. If someone needs more money, he or she will still need to find a ...
