“Getting money without working for it is probably more often a detriment than a boon to civilized behavior….  But Bell [Clive] is completely mistaken if he thinks that free money alone, handed out to the mob, will bring a more enlightened, more literate, and more sophisticated society.  Instead, it will make us poorer in every way – economically and socially.  And culturally.  It will be a disaster.  It’s work, challenges, and struggles that give meaning to our lives, not money.” -Bill Bonner
