“This may be the time to consider a universal basic wage which would acknowledge and dignify the noble, essential tasks you carry out,” pope Francis wrote. “It would ensure and concretely achieve the ideal, at once so human and so Christian, of no worker without rights.” The pope also said that some

Pope Francis has warned the world against returning to the "illusion of individualism" after the coronavirus pandemic ends.

In particular, he judges that the time has come to reflect on concepts such as the universal basic income, which, in his view, could guarantee "people the dignity of refusing employment conditions which lock them in poverty" .

Universal income, which was notably defended in France by Benoît Hamon during the campaign for the 2017 presidential election, is an allowance paid unconditionally to each citizen.

François also denounces the false conception, according to him, of the runoff theory according to which a growing economy will make everyone richer.

For its supporters, economic runoff consists of taking measures, such as reducing taxation, for businesses and the upper classes in order to promote investment and job creation which will then benefit all the rest of the country. society.

Trudeau Says He Sees No Path For Basic Income Right Now

  Trudeau Says He Sees No Path For Basic Income Right Now OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shared his thoughts about a universal basic income during a virtual town hall Wednesday, saying that it’s an idea worth discussing but one the government isn’t itching to move ahead on. The NDP have advocated the idea of basic income in the House of Commons during the pandemic, calling it a tool that could help eliminate poverty by ensuring Canadians have enough money to meet the basic necessities of life in food, clothing, and shelter. “I think it’s a very important conversation to have.

Among the other subjects addressed in this book, François considers that the opponents to the wearing of the mask, who see in it a desire of the rulers to restrict their freedoms, are victims of their imagination and he salutes the demonstrators who were indignant at the death of George Floyd, African-American who died in the spring following his arrest by the police in the United States.

For the first time, he qualifies the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority in China, as a "persecuted" people, something that human rights defenders have been asking him for for years.

China is accused of carrying out a systematic repression, which some equate to crimes against humanity and genocide, against Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, where more than a million people are held in camps.

China describes these accusations as a smear campaign against it and affirms that these camps are education and training centers to fight against radicalization and terrorism.

For many observers, the Vatican has so far been reluctant to discuss the situation of the Uyghurs due to negotiations with China on the renewal of an agreement on the appointment of bishops. This agreement was extended in September.

In this section on persecuted peoples, François also quotes Christians in certain Muslim countries, the Rohingyas who are fleeing Burma or the Yazidis, victims of the Islamic State organization in Iraq.
