I challenge you to read this article by Paul Rosenberg at Freeman’s Perspective and you may never think about student loan debt the same ever again.
I’m sorry. You’re entering a world that has condemned you to slavery before you were even born. No, not the full-blown, work-in-the-fields slavery you learned about in school, but something that has most of the same effects but looks far better: they take half of your life and expect you to thank them for it.
There are actually several parts to your slavery. Today I am speaking of the part you may know best: inescapable student loans.
Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone calls student loan programs “a shameful and oppressive outrage that for years now has been systematically perpetrated against a generation of young adults.”
It’s chilling to think of all the manipulation that was involved.
