Tomgram: Engelhardt, Going for Broke in Ponzi Scheme America
As that system, awash in plutocratic contributions to politics and taxpayer contributions to the military-industrial-homeland-security complex, morphs into something else, so will you, whether you realize it or not.  Though never thought of as such, your debt is part of the same system.  A society that programmatically trains its young into debt and calls that “higher education” is as corrupt as a wealthy country that won’t rebuild its own infrastructure.  Talk about the hollowing out of America: you are it.  No matter how substantial you may be in private, you are being impersonally emptied in what passes for the real world.
