Joe Rogan endorses communist utopian philosophy with UBI handouts to the masses who won’t have to work
By Belle Carter // Jun 09, 2024

American commentator Joe Rogan advocated for a communist utopian theory, wherein Americans who lose their jobs because of the advent of artificial intelligence and other advancements in technology, will be given a hefty amount of free money via a universal basic income (UBI) system. He suggested the amount of $200,000 a year per person.

UBI is a concept of a government program in which every citizen receives a set amount of money regularly. The goals of a basic income system are to alleviate poverty and replace other need-based social programs that potentially require greater bureaucratic involvement.

In a recent episode of the "Joe Rogan Experience," he sat with Billy Carson, author and founder and CEO of streaming TV network 4BiddenKnowledgeTV. The two tackled the rapid rate of AI in media and how robots could take over the jobs of Americans.

"They just released this ChatGPT and other robotics on humanity, which is great. It's going to do a lot of good for us," Carson continued. "But at the same time, if you're going to replace somebody's job, you have to then take away their financial responsibilities. You can't expect them to still have the financial responsibilities and take away the job, so that's going to be the conundrum. I'm waiting to see how that's going to pan out."

Rogan replied saying that people should not worry because there's enough money in the country to support those who lose their jobs to technological advancement. "Just imagine the entire country just gets a free $200,000 a year [per person]; you're never going to have to worry about food. You're never going to have to worry about a place to live. You're good," he said in the podcast. "You've got $200,000 a year because everything's automated and everything's done by the government, then you're going to have to find something. You're going to have to find a purpose."

The podcaster suggested that free wages could give people the freedom to explore their true passions, whether that's in the arts, other areas of creativity or continuing to work. "Wouldn't that be better than work?" he said. "Because for most people, there's a great satisfaction in working and accomplishing a hard day's work. You get your paycheck, and you feel like you've accomplished something." He further implied that with this approach, people will just get free money because robots control everything. "No more jobs," he said. "The heads of future industries wouldn't have to pay a salary to these robots, only repair costs and management costs."

Meanwhile, critics believe that Rogan, whose podcast boasts 14.5 million subscribers on Spotify, laid out a vision that is essentially the communist utopia depicted in the popular science fiction franchise Star Trek, where capitalism and money have been abolished and the issue of resource scarcity has been overcome.

AI godfather advocates UBI to the UK government

Renowned technology expert Geoffrey Hinton, the computer scientist who was tagged as the "godfather" of artificial intelligence (AI) recommended that the British government consider adopting a UBI for adult Britons.

"I was consulted by people in Downing Street and I advised them that UBI was a good idea," Hinton shared with the BBC. According to him, the AI revolution will mostly benefit the rich. Regular employees such as blue-collar workers and those in jobs that can be automated could lose their means of income. "That is going to be bad for society," Hinton warned.

He said he feared that AI could become an extinction-level threat to humans in the next five to 20 years. He warned about the growing use of AI chatbots, saying that "a form of that is just better than biological intelligence." Hinton also pointed out that the competition to develop products rapidly meant there was a risk tech companies "can autonomously decide to kill people" by increasing their dependence on AI.

Analysts say it would be extremely costly and divert funding away from public services, while not necessarily helping to alleviate poverty. Meanwhile, a U.K. government spokesman said there were "no plans to introduce a universal basic income."

Hinton is the pioneer of neural networks, which form the theoretical basis of the current explosion in artificial intelligence. He used to work at Google but left the tech giant so he could talk more freely about the dangers of unregulated AI.
