  •  Getting rid of people's debt is a tactic. Think (0+ / 0-)

    about it.  How do you go about convincing someone that's teetering on the edge, between what they perceive is financial stability and ruin?

    They're not going to get rid of their debt (by refusing to pay up) unless there is a major calling, solidarity with others, etc.

    But I agree that there are scores of people beyond that threshold, who cannot longer keep up with their debts; they need to be organized as part of the movement.

    We'll continue brainstorming on how to do that...

    •  Yeah, it's a tactic and a basis for solidarity (1+ / 0-)

      We're working on how to do this, and doing it, in Strike Debt. The diversity of people who have debt is incredible.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
