Universal Basic Income (UBI): A History Show more
Basic income is a concept that has existed in various forms, under various names, since the days of the Enlightenment. Political economist Philipe Van Parijs defined basic income as “an income paid by a government, at a uniform level and at regular intervals, to each adult member of society. The grant is paid, and its level is fixed, irrespective of whether the person is rich or poor, lives alone or with others, is willing to work or not.”

A major problem with the way that we raise autistic children is that abled people do not expect anyone to want to be our friend so instead of teaching us how to handle social relationships in a healthy way we're just taught how to make ourselves most palatable to abled people who do not, and never will, actually care about us as human beings.
We become autistic adults who struggle to maintain friendships with people who actually love us because nobody taught us how.
