Abolish Human Rentals [...]

It seems to me that all of sudden people are talking about guaranteed minimum income and disconnecting income from work. The idea being that we work to fulfill our goals, while money comes from other sources. I can't quite imagine how it can work, but the ideas intrigue me. In a world where we see individuals devote thousands of hours to Open Source development without remuneration, it seems that we have proven that humans are not lazy idiots who would just watch TV all day if you let them. OK, at least that some humans are not lazy idiots.

The human rental today manifests itself as the voluntary exchange of personal labor for a salary or wage. A legitimate arrangement requires workplace democracy and worker ownership whenever human labor is involved.
