MLK had a dream. We can make it come true.

Great new piece by Steven Shafarman on MLK and the basic income.

Shafarman writes:

King sought to promote justice, freedom, equality, and civil rights by abolishing poverty. In his last book,Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?, published in 1967, he wrote: “I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective—the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.”

He ends with a message for the next president: 

Endorse basic income now, next president, and we’ll vote for you. You could win in a landslide.
