Japanese and EU citizens share the same ideal for a basic income

Japan Constitution
Article 25. 
 All people shall have the right to maintain the minimum standards of wholesome and cultured living.
So far, the Japanese citizens have not been able to get their politicians to fulfill this right in their Constitution. Far away in the European Union, people are asking for an unconditional basic income to allow for dignity living in a society.

European Citizens' Initiative for an Unconditional Basic Income

The emancipatory Unconditional Basic Income is defined by the following four criteria: 

  1. universal,
  2. individual,
  3. unconditional, and
  4. high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and participation in society.
