Any basic income would certainly expand options, but the enfranchisement provided by a share in the Commons, a concrete inclusion in the family of humanity, a specific social contract, can only act against despair, and for motivation.
Consider then, if you will, the causes of this deficit in core human motivation, and I don’t agree…

Hard to argue against this. I think considerations like free universal basic education of a high quality, perhaps a broader social contract that gives flexibility but channels funds to high return activities.
