Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

How in the hell does someone in prison ever have a chance of paying off a debt?
Not a very well thought out question.
Big Finance would never allow debtor's prison.
The demand for credit would plummet.
People wound not purchase things unless they had the money.
I haven't read the every post in the thread, but it seems that everyone thinks the amount of loans would stay the same and we would have a huge prison system bulging at the seams with debtors.
I don't see that. I see people taking less loans.
The proper concern of society is the preservation of individual freedom; the proper concern of the individual is the harmony of society.
