Society's response to the student debt crisis: 1) pepper spray your children; 2) have the police beat on them a bit.
Let us count how society is smacking the children down. If one has student debt:
-The kid can never receive social security.
-Even if one declares bankruptcy, the kid still owes the student debt.
-Even if the young person dies, his or her father still owes the student debt.
-Wages are garnished to pay off the debt.
This bubble is going to burst soon. Photo: Kids, some of them from DePaul University, tell their stories about student debt and hardship before their peers.
