RB is a formally secular proposal, and would be paid regardless of gender, income level, religion (if any) or sexual orientation. Key word: unconditional.

To address the first question (is it just?) it is useful to make some distinctions between the theories of justice that have attempted to show that the answer to the question posed is yes. But with a clear choice: the tradition of republican liberty is the one of my preference3.
