The question then becomes to what extent a BI is contrary to common notions of justice related to the link between work and income which are presumably incorporated in the workfare scheme, but not in a BI scheme.
The proposition that BI reduces se1f-re1iance is therefore not a conclusion that follows logically: it is motivated on empirical and moral grounds. The empirical issue hinges on how many people under a BI regime wilfully and intentionally choose to live from the BI only and forego productive use of capacities and talents in paid employment. In any case, the danger of large-scale parasitism will be smaller at lower levels of the BI. The occurrence of any wilful parasitism will, in addition to the level of the BI, depend on the distribution of potential eaming powers and on preferences for work and leisure.
