So welfare sounds like slavery to you?

No. But it’s a situation where the government provides something of value (money) and receives nothing in return.

If you think about that for even a moment, you realize it’s an unsustainable equation, IF the provision starts to approach a substantial portion of the aggregate tax revenue.

And that’s why the UBI idea is a non-starter, but the JG is a superior notion.
