Switzerland carries the hope of a new civilization.

Swiss Initiative and the World stands for basic income on the 4th of October!

'Let’s all gather in the Swiss capital for this really special day ! Let’s make 4th of October a basic income event for Europe and the world."

"The Swiss initiative in detail:The popular initiative for an unconditional basic income (UBI), which in the view of its supporters should be thought of as a civil right rather than social welfare, was launched in 2012. It aims to have a new clause incorporated into the Swiss constitution that the Confederation “shall ensure the introduction of an unconditional basic income. The basic income shall enable the whole population to live in human dignity and participate in public life. Particularly the law shall regulate the way in which the basic income is to be financed and the level at which it is set.”

The success of the Swiss initiative could be a model for the whole of Europe.' (

And a model for the whole world.

A democracy with an unconditional basic income or a citizen dividend is really a new civilization. Unconditional basic income is the monetary equivalent of universal suffrage. Citizens will get political power AND monetary power. 

Let there not be voters in poverty.
