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.”
Taibbi is right, of course, but I think he’s being mild. So, let me be more blunt:
Millions of young Americans have been forced into debt slavery.
Please understand that I am writing for accuracy here, not flamboyance. If you are in student loan debt, you were pushed and you are being held and it is slavery.
