Against owing: Re-introducing the radical notion of the Human Credit.


You say you can’t get something for nothing? Look at your own body and mind. That’s a free lunch right there. You started life being given a free lunch. What did you do to deserve it? That’s the wrong question! Go back to the free lunch. Proceed from there.

Inspired by David Graeber’s audio series on debt, Jeff Dorchen dusts off Human Credit from the good ideas pile, and makes the case for valuing humans for their innate humanity, not how much money they don’t have.
