Yes. But my view (based on the evidence I've seen in the research), is that this fear some express about giving people money is simply unfounded. Yes, there are some people who will be free-riders, but that the case across the economic spectrum. It is not the majority. Actual experiments conducted around the world (including a few in Canada) show that most people who receive guaranteed incomes don't generally lose their motivation to work.Sure that side of the equation is valid. Let’s not quibble over the percent split ala “Nature v Nurture.” We agree in large on the event if not the intentions.
I would argue the evidence of this fact is all around us. Anyone on a pension can attest to the fact that they remain engaged with the community, doing valuable "work." Heck, there's a ton of "work" done in our societies which have never been paid (parental work, child care, homecare, etc.), not to mention the 10s of thousands of hours of volunteer work provided by people throughout our societies.
