Keeping it as simple as possible; compare not only our national debt, but the world's entire debt, as the game of 'Monopoly.' Eventually someone has all the money and property. That's the game! So what would happen, or what would be so wrong, for the United States to unilaterally declare all debts, public and private, to be be brought to a zero balance? No one owes anyone anything. We just start all over. Perhaps we all may learn to live and lend and borrow within our means. With no protection for fools.
