“Humanity is about to face perhaps its greatest challenge ever, which is finding meaning in life after the end of ‘In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,'” Vardi said. “We need to rise to the occasion and meet this challenge” before human labor becomes obsolete, he said.

I feel very strongly that basic income is the best chance we have at halting and maybe reverting our long slow slide back to feudalism. It will only get worse as we confront the tidal wave of automation about to crash into us: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-brave-new-world-of-robots-and-lost-jobs/2016/08/11/e66a4914-5fff-11e6-af8e-54aa2e849447_story.html

GiveDirectly is a rigorous scientific experiment of basic income that has the potential to make many people's lives much better.

It's important to recognize that basic income isn't some statist government takeover: it's a fundamental replacement of most entitlements, one that believers in the free market and bleeding hearts can get behind. It has the potential to end poverty and radically free up huge amounts of human potential.
