Basic Income Idea: Give everyone,employed or not, a monthly cheque that can buy basic food, clothing and shelter unconditionally as a right of citizenship.
A basic income was shown in the Mincome experiment to be able to solve problems related to poverty and health care outcomes without creating a disincentive to work that is actually the property of the current system. It benefited the working poor most. It also changed attitudes of people toward their neighbours judging by Professor Evelyn Forget's reporting of interviews she conducted with actual subjects in Dauphin. "When we're all the same there is no shame" a handicapped subject told her. You can't get that by increasing a benefit cheque that only a targeted population can receive.

It's high time we recognise that the working class over the last few decades has been robbed not only of services but also cash and we should not be misguided away from something better by an ideological aversion to redistributing income by giving cash or fear of doing something big enough to be meaningful. Some services will still be needed and that is precisely why a party that cares about those left behind should be the one to implement a basic income that does not replace what will still be needed.
Creating full employment might no longer be possible due to automation and would do no good if the new jobs are part-time, precarious and/or contract/temporary. If the old paradigm will no longer work we need to shift to a new one where people can survive with some dignity without a good job and where men getting acquainted ask what they like rather than what they do.
