If you're automating and outsourcing all the work it would seem to be a choice between ubi or some form of genocide or mass incarceration, so far we are dealing with the shrinking need for human labor via mass incarceration of the former working class but Ubi is actually cheaper than locking up one in ten of the post working class in private prisons for poverty induced crimes

Or, like, banning the automation. It's politically crazy, but then so is UBI.
