: I closely associate the Citizens Wage with Socialism a wage paid unconditionally to every citizen regardless if they work or not.

why do I get the uncomfortable feeling that % not working will go up, as per our cynical poster further up the board.

: That seems a very capitalist version of socialism where you are still made to be thrifty and all your could have done this, could have done that wishes and dreams just translate into a bank account your afraid to take money out of.

Because your means to survival have to be created, try the same dynamic with units of food - same result.
