A lot of your answers resemble the USSR. It didn't work out well for them.

You get the behavior you incentivize. If there is universal income, why should folks work? If people are guaranteed a job, why should they do their best work? They can't be let go. The job is guaranteed. If I do work hard, you said you would take up to 91% of my income. The government didn't want children born out of wedlock. Then, they started paying for babies to be born out of wedlock. What did the country get? A whole lot of the behavior we incentivized.
