Thanks to America’s old-age welfare programs, Social Security and Medicare, millions of young Americans are being drafted into debt. Like the military draft, the Debt Draft treats the lives of young people as the property of the state. They have been conscripted to finance other people’s retirement and health care needs, regardless of what impact this will have on their own lives. They’re told that their duty is to set aside their own happiness in order to serve the needs of the old.
What can you do to fight the Debt Draft? Help wage a moral crusade against the ideas that have led to it. The welfare state cannot exist without the consent of its victims. It counts on the people being exploited to accept that they are being sacrificed for a noble cause. If the victims ever rebelled publicly and said they do not consent to being victimized — that the Debt Draft is immoral — then the scheme would collapse.
Below you’ll find key resources to help you fight the Debt Draft. Start fighting welfare state exploitation today by sharing this page with your friends and family.
