Wealth

Occupy Wall Street, have a Tea Party, become a Democrat or a Republican, Vote, Protest, reform Health Care, Tax the very wealthy, introduce Fair Tax, Socialism, Capitalism, Welfare, Jobs, Housing, Bail-outs, Bankruptcy and Debt are the emotion-laden words and phrases that one hears ranted and spun everyday on every social media platform.

The enormous debt that we have incurred seems to be the insurmountable problem.  And it is apparent that we are unlikely to ever pay off the debt that together and/or individually we have accumulated.  Expecting people to pay when they have no means does not seem ethical any more than allowing some people to walk away from responsibilities and insisting that others fulfill theirs. Then there is the question of who falls into which category and what standard of measurement should be used.  Because debt does not magically disappear, Someone has to pay for it.

Is there anyone out there that has a solution to this crisis?

Really?

Listen up, it’s only money.

The real crisis is of the human heart and the personal debt incurred from borrowing the good, lovely, pure and holy things in life and trying to pay for them with actions motivated by envy, greed, hate, and lust. Add to that the accumulated interest of the damage inflicted upon others by such actions and the realization of spoiled opportunity and wasted life.

What would be a proper response if someone were to settle this account and pay off all debt?
