The idea of a basic guaranteed income, as it is being discussed right now in Switzerland or in Canada, is in my estimation a relatively helpless, economic expression of the fact that each human being has dignity and thus is important.

In a society, in which the paradigms of economy and efficiency are so dominant, in which human values become secondary considerations, and in which our environment and the creation are degraded to exploitable resources, we need another thoughtful hint – as utopian as it may seem – to remember that we as human beings need solidarity und mutual respect in order to live.
