Basic Income should be universal, individual, unconditional and high enough to ensure a dignified existence and participation in society.
This new fundamental right for humanity, not only would eradicate misery, it is also a way to develop non-market oriented work: such as artists, parents and volunteers. But it's also an economic measure! A basic income for all would mean supporting local business.
Therefore, it would enable us to fully exercise our citizenship.
