Our monetary system obfuscates what people are contributing to society. The assumption that because someone has money, they are contributing to society, is false, as is it false to assume those without money aren't contributing.

We created a private property system which locked up resources behind walls & then decided to create keys to those locks called money. Not only is it incorrect to assume that because someone lacks enough keys, they don't deserve access to what they need to survive, it's immoral.
Meanwhile, the ownership & inheritance of locks leads to the passive accumulation of more keys, and in such a system where working for lock owners is required in order to obtain keys, and doing nothing but having a lock leads to keys, we perpetuate an unjust system of domination.
As long as we choose to use a monetary system in order to distribute access to locked up resources, enough keys must be continually distributed so that lock owners can't dominate key needers.

UBI is unconditional basic keys and thus unconditional freedom from immoral domination.
Lock owners should not get to dictate the terms by which key needers obtain keys, when keys are as important as air for life. Economic justice demands basic keys, and it also happens to be the only way of recognizing ALL forms of societal contribution where no keys are exchanged.
Best of all, in a system of locked resources where everyone has enough keys to unlock a basic amount of resources, the infinite creativity inherent to humanity is also unlocked, & the ways we put those resources to use will lead to a level of innovation that's truly unimaginable.
