Income offers Choice

Choice is the key to freedom

Ownership of  Property is the Capitalist Mantra of our Economic System for both self use and for retraction of profit from ownership.   Ownership is only partial and therefore privilege, in that it can be reclaimed by the government for not paying taxes or by the Right of Eminent Domain.  But it is the cornerstone of unearned Income

When residential property is owned but not used, the owner would like to have someone to pay for its use. If another person desired use of that residence and had the resources to rent the unused residence, that person would do so unless he wanted to be homeless.  But if that person lacked  resources or wages,  he would be homeless. That is the power of ownership over the poor. They are either trapped in Poverty or forced to be a Wage-Slave  to undesirable jobs without Freedom to choose.

 To insure Freedom to escape poverty or wage-slavery is to find a way to distribute money to the person who has none. The solution is to provide a Basic Income Guarantee to every person large enough to buy sufficient food, adequate shelter, and effective medical care. It is the simplest solution to distributing basic Goods & Service to every person.
 I recommend using the existing Supplemental Security Income [SSI] without a Means Test of need. It should be given to all with no need of a Government Bureau for Begging to exercise "Shaming"
