Thanks for reading and responding, Dan. Honest capitalism would be great, and I’m all over the concept of UBI. As lovely as a world without the IRS sounds, sales tax is pretty regressive — but I haven’t checked out the website you include so I’ll reserve judgment on that. But what, I wonder, would motivate Dems and Reps to head together toward that goal of honest capitalism?
