Let's think this through

The $100,000 owed is Fiat money and should be paid back in like kind.For instance, if the national debt is 10 trillion dollars let the U.S. mint coin 10, one trillion dollar coins (not gold, not silver remember "like kind" ) ,then with the ten coins pay the damn debt.It's proper it's moral, it's justified. of course we would most likley be nuked within a week.

Nobody would work, nobody would sell, nobody would use the currency because money represents a promise to deliver value and once that promise is no longer upheld there is no point in using money. Direct swaps would be the only form of trade. Very limiting.
