  1. Actu­ally I would choose almost every option in this poll. But since the ques­tion was ‚with Basic Income’ and not ‚with unlim­ited time’... ;)

  2. Würde mich mit 56 Jahren noch gerne Weit­er­bilden und zu meinem Dipl.-Ing. noch den Master of Arts machen, berufs­be­glei­t­end. Damit ergeben sich neue Möglichkeiten für meine Selb­ständigkeit, die ich seit 26 Jahren ausübe. Kosten: ca. 16.000 Euro und nicht uner­he­blicher Zeitaufwand.
    Ein Grun­deinkom­men böte mir diese Möglichkeit!

  3. Die alleinige Last der Fam­i­lien­ver­sorgung (ins­beson­dere der Kinder) würde mir abgenom­men werden und mir mehr Freiräume ver­schaf­fen - mit einer 3-4 Tage­woche im Beruf mehr Zeit für die Fam­i­lie haben und mir mehr Freiräume ver­schaf­fen, ehre­namtlich aktiv zu sein. Für ein besseres miteinan­der statt gegeneinan­der.

  4. Frei­heit und Ver­bun­den­heit leben. Mit mir. Mit den Men­schen. Mit der Welt. Nach­haltiger. Entspan­nter. Kreativer. Stiller. Lauter. Rhyth­mis­cher. Bunter. Lustiger. Inten­siver. Ein Leben lang.

  5. I’ve actu­ally been one of the lucky few here, as I have for the past 8years been able to secure and sus­tain my lifestyle at a Basic Income. 8 years ago I had to be declared „dis­abled,” and had to go under „restruc­tur­ing” of my eco­nomic lot in life. I have done more than merely sur­vived on less than $1,000 a month in all this time. I reside in brand new gated com­mu­nity, own my own vehi­cle, free and clear, main­tain an excel­lent qual­ity of life, and live amongst the Sierra Nevada moun­tain range where I have ease of access [...]

    to out­door life, enter­tain­ment, and a plethora of com­mu­nity ser­vice oppor­tu­ni­ties, that enjoy. As part of my disabilit(ies) in the past year I was part­nered with a fully trained ser­vice dog, and since been vol­un­teer­ing, on my own sched­ule, as a com­mu­nity out­reach edu­ca­tor and advo­cate on the newly imple­mented and enforced Ser­vice Animal Code of Fed­eral Reg­u­la­tions. My spir­i­tual life, and rela­tion­ship with my God, has never been better, and it only improves day by day given the strength and sus­tain­abil­ity that I am so richly afforded, and do not take for granted.
