We as a society view our monetary debts as a moral issue: We took out the money, we should have to pay it back. The problem with this logic is that the money we are giving the banks, financial institutions and our government never existed before the interest we incurred piled up.

Pam Brown of the Occupy Student Debt Campaign and Strike Debt says there’s another way out of our predicament: If our numbers are large enough, we can collectively refuse to pay back the trillions that are being extorted from us.
