Doctor King's Legacy

His "I have a dream" speech is widely known/beloved. His last book is the culmination of an incredible mind's reflection on society as a whole. As I read it, I hear him orating the passage which contains "I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective - the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income."

We've long understood that the root of our scourges, hunger/war/disease is poverty and the implementation of the Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) is such a clear remedy that it behooves us to advocate its universal adoption forthwith.
