A human society is a collection of individuals who promise each other basic safety, freedom from fear, and who recognise their mutual dependence.
The essential promise at the heart of a society is the guaranteed provision of basic life sustaining services to everyone, unconditionally: Universal Services.
Those Universal Services are provided to the best of the society’s ability and capacity, and include:
- Legal Services
No one has to use the services, indeed many will not. They are there to provide a floor, to ensure access to a basic life.
Start with imagining an easy example: what if everyone has a free local bus pass?
Or free basic Internet access?
See UBS website for more details.
Reducing the cost of a basic life to zero money is the key to our sustainable future.
