Should we bring back debtors prisons instead? Because the way student loans are administered in this country today is remarkably reminiscent of indentured servitude. U.S. senators and congressmen already showed us where their true loyalties lay when they eliminated bankruptcy for student loans. Shall we sit back and continue to allow the credit ratings of countless students to be ruined by government sanctioned predatory lending practices? So many predatory businesses like those offering so-called "payday loans" exist only because of a deadly combination of legislative capture, lobbying, and consumer ignorance. Another case where our legislators showed us long ago that they prefer a society perpetually beholden to interest payments. Apparently they are happy with the epidemic of poverty and human misery that has resulted... The early church outlawed usury for a reason!
