        [ 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.

Your article is written in a wandering style that is very hard to
read.  It digresses through all sorts of secondary issues before it
gets to the point.  I suggest you put the main point first and the
caveats after.

Sine I don't object to present-day forms of welfare as "socialist",
I don't see a need to look to justify a basic income on the grounds
that it avoids being "socialist".
