Martin Luther King's dream is alive - CNN.com

January 21, 2013 is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. federal holiday in USA.
Martin Luther King's dream is alive - CNN.com:
"I think King would be saddened that the poverty and economic disparities he fought against at the end of his life are still here."

Martin Luther King supports unconditional basic income.

From Wikipedia:
In his final book Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? (1967) Martin Luther King Jr. wrote

I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective — the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.

—from the chapter titled "Where We Are Going"
