Basic income reconsidered

Following up on this post, these authors don’t like the basic income.  Therein they don’t find it a useful idea. They say that capitalists like the idea because then they can eliminate other social programs and privatize what they used to cover. What good is free money if we have to use it to buy back needed services and still maintain capitalism?
