Why do you think Zizek glosses over this aspect of basic income? He says that basic income would engender resentment, but doesn't saying that rely on the assumption that humans are basically vain and lazy? Is there somewhere to go putting Zizek in conversation with the kind of argument for basic income offered above?

Are you familiar with the late Andre Gorz? He advocated a basic income and fewer working hours for decades in France.
