A few months ago I suggested that US should consider decriminalizing heroin (like Portugal has done) and focus resources and $$ on addiction prevention and recovery treatments. Yang has similar ideas. His entire townhall (#YangTownHall) is worth a listen.
2. Yang said that he would like to hire a government ombudsman to monitor malicious speech in the US, particularly from the press. Yang noted how, in UK, viewers of BBC can petition an ombudsman, who can then take issues under review.

"So, if they can do that, why can't we?"
3. With much of the press lately seemingly aligning itself with Buttigieg, @AndrewYang is surely but quietly asserting himself with more quality ideas than Buttigieg regarding complex issues. He is the only Democratic candidate with a good plan to address the immigration crisis.

I can't help but like @AndrewYang

He has a sense of proportion - and of what problems really will matter in the next 10-20 years

That said, he doesn't seem that keen to fight the culture war, which I sense the Dem base desperately wants their candidate to do

It's also striking how much more appealing Yang is than the Democratic questioners

They ask "hey, are you down with the standard Democratic platform," and he's responding with "sure...sort of."
He's for decriminalization of minor opioid possession which may be the single most important humanitarian cause to take up right now

You've got to create a way for opioid addicts to get help and it won't happen so long as raising your hand risks a jail sentence

Among the most frequently asked questions of all among those first hearing about universal basic income is the concern that prices will rise. This goes into that question in-depth & even includes applicable evidence from the Alaska dividend.

Another one of the most asked questions about universal basic income is if too many people will stop working if they no longer are forced to work to live. I wrote this article to answer that question and about the question itself.
