Keywords: guaranteed income, robotization, capitalism crisis, archaization

Joint consideration of genetically unrelated but simultaneous processes of robotization and implementation of guaranteed income principle makes it possible to see the symptoms of upcoming formational transition. We investigated social phenomena both in socialist and liberal interpretations.

Implicit arkhaization of social relations represented as natural element of historical dynamics appears to be the external manifestation of this process
