Comment: A simplified analogy

A simplified analogy

If you and I were the only people on an island and we decided we needed money for some reason, it could go two ways. We could decide to use some object found locally or we could decide that I could print this money.

Under option 2, if I print it and loan it to you with even 1% or even 1$ simple interest - any at all, in fact - you will forever be my slave, for there is no way for you to ever pay me off.

As more people get involved in this game, a way for you to pay me off becomes available. That being if you acquire enough from someone else. However, there is always someone at the bottom who stands to lose everything and remain a slave.

Such is our current option 2 system... simplified.
