        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    It depends. A common leftist objection on basic income is that it
    enables "unethical evil company" to offer jobs for very very very low

That is a nonsequitur.  What stops companies from offering jobs on
very very low wages is that (1) people are not interested and (2) the
minimum wage law.
