Several things...

Interest made on loaned money is paid back to the US Treasury. This is a factual thing, either provable or not provable, thus we should save our time sharing opinions.

Usury, or interest on money, is a GOOD thing. There is nothing wrong with charging interest and there is everything wrong with NOT doing so. If your neighbor borrows 20,000 from you and pays you back the 20,000 5 years from today, you've lost, even if the buying power of the $20,000 is the exact same.... of course the buying power will not be, products improve, and most of all, your own opportunity costs of using the money yourself. Interest is a good thing, a capitalist thing, a rational thing. If you want my money, I experience opportunity cost, I will expect inflation cost or at least the uncertainty of its value when returned to me, and of course default risk (not getting my money back). Finally, I need the promise of gain, hence charging interest is quite natural thing to do. Even if you "borrow" for 5 years my barbecue, I want the promise of my barbecue returned PLUS...
