Equal money for all people

Image the hypothetical initial situation: the government of your country has all the money and we need to share it with the citizens.
Should everyone get an equal share? Or the salary will depend on man's working time/intelligence/physical power/experience? 🤔

Re: Equal money for all people

You could try reading some socialist/communist texts if you're interested in this. One I read recently is 'News From Nowhere' by William Morris... it's fiction but it's basically his socialist wet dream. They have no currency, they all just help each other when they need it... it's bs in my opinion, the world is never going to be equal. And even if everyone got equal pay, people would find ways to assert their dominance in other ways

Re: Equal money for all people

Personally I believe a UBI (explained well here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kl39KHS07Xc) would be ideal, but I'm also someone who believes in a pretty large form of socialism so there's that. I don't really fall for the "large government" debate as the United States government is already very large, down to the point that they know nearly every single thing you do and could examine it if they so desired, and with a budget plan that made any sense it could very much be possible.
