At least as far as WFH goes, I think even currently employees have shown that it is a thing they very much want, the big, and more difficult culture shift is on the employer side.

Yeah, I think that is the point I was trying to make - bringing about a cultural shift in a group, against the perceived interests of the group rather than the group that wants/benefits from the change.

Similarly with UBI - how do you motivate a government to subsidise the cost of living in a widespread way when it's obviously a huge expenditure?

By explaining math to them. A population without income dies. If everyone is dead, who is buying the stupid squishmallows and air Jordans?

Not everyone is dying. Only the less performant specimens
