Kate McFarland has written 36 articles.

I mostly do stuff that interests me and wait and see where it leads next. I used to be the lead writer for Basic Income News, and now I am not. Right now, my life is an open-ended adventure, which you can follow at a safe distance via my recently launched blog, uselessliving.wordpress.com. I oppose the direct monetization of my advocacy-related writing and other labors of love; however, I accept donations on Patreon (where all content is free and none "patron only") and PayPal.
