I'm not completely opposed to a government provided basic income.. in fact I think it already exists for those who need it (see Sec 8 housing, welfare, WIC, etc)
But let's say we do enact UBI:
How much should it be? The same in New York as it is in Oklahoma? The same for a couple with 5 kids as a couple with 2?
And what welfare programs should we drop in favor of it? In other words, once Johnny has his UBI, what assistance can we safely stop offering him?
And I'll even come out and say it in advance... this is a total trap. Klam might advise you to tiptoe on past it

I can't wait for the day when I can put a self check-in and payment kiosk on #1 tee.
Of course the golf demographic is similar to Delaware football nation and not exactly what you'd describe as "early adopters."
The simple solution to New York vs. Oklahoma is to move all the UBI New Yorkers TO Oklahoma. They'll fit right in for the most part after they each get over the accent thing. Think of it as a progressive Trail of Tears.
Gentrification is a beautiful thing. Make NYC Great Again!
Many small town golf courses already had the self check-in, it was called the honor system with an envelope and a drop box.
