I really liked listening to this guy's no non-sense and pragmatist ideas. Definitely worth a listen if you're interested in something different from the status quo.

You are literally making up a false narrative. There is nothing remotely related to 'giving everyone a million dollars' that has to do with what I posted in the OP.

Hopefully some people have the sense to actually read/listen to the podcast episode.

I'm still not sure what you mean by stick your head in the sand? Why can't you simply answer a direct question?

The dude's platform is universal basic income so yes my comment did have to do with what you posted.

New ideas ARE scary, especially when you don't fully understand how they work.

Universal basic income DOES NOT mean giving $1 million to everyone.

Where TF did you get that stupid idea?

The "stupid" idea is universal basic income and even dumber are it's proponents. They've already conducted studies and test on this in multiple countries and communities and in every single one it failed miserably.
