The problem is that monitoring will be inherent in the solution...when has any government ever done anything like this with no strings attached? With no intrusion into your life? Anyone who says 'its an experiment, it doesn't have to be that way in reality' is living in a fantasy world. Of course it would have to be that way, just like the purest ideas of whatever ideology you or I subscribe to can never be implemented in the ideologist's conceived way. In what existence does any of us live in where the powers that be would not want to have those kinds of strings attached? How else do you expect the distribution of wealth and future decision making can be made regarding these kinds of programs? I for one do not want to be any kind of a social experiment. Social experiments should not happen.
You know, some people like to call the idea / creation of the United States the "great social experiment". Bullshit. Stop experimenting with freedom. Freedom is not an experiment, all these so called 'social experiments' are thinly veiled attempts to figure out how you can take someone's freedom away in a way that's acceptable to them.
