I completely agree that taxes should follow wealth. But — passive income is not tax money collected from some taxpayers and given to others. The UBI is. There is huge difference between income that is under-taxed and income that is paid out as a government stipend. I repeat my argument that the answer to the problem the UBI is supposed to solve is a guaranteed living-wage job for every citizen. — David Grace
