Manifesto #2: Universal Basic Services

Eve Livingston

“Fundamentally, at the core of any model of universal basic services is a moral and emotional reality that cannot be underestimated: that the poorest in our society are told without equivocation that they deserve the same quality as the rich, and that to have it is their right and not a bonus for which they should be grateful. Symbolism can be easily overlooked or dismissed, but in a society built on division and inequality, there are few messages more radical.”
