Libertarians debate universal basic income

As a libertarian-leaning thinker who said he wasn't "that kind of libertarian"  because "I don't hate poor people," Robert Anton Wilson was interested in maximum freedom but also advocated helping the poor. One of the ideas he was interested in was the universal basic income, sending money to people to make sure they aren't totally broke.

Two libertarian college professors whose work I follow closely, Bryan Caplan and Chris Freiman, recently held a debate on the UBI, with Freiman arguing in favor and Caplan against. I plan to try to watch this over the weekend.
