    Productivism is not a conspiracy. It's out in the wide open. It's the modus operandi. The federal reserve has wide powers that allow for its continuation, sure, but that doesn't make it a conspiracy.

    Productivism??? if this is what you mean by it: Productivism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I still dont see how it fits into the idea that the banks have some conspiracy to never have enough money in the economy to pay off interest + debt (im assuming this is what you're talking about).

    No. You can sometimes defer payment for a short time if you are unemployed or something. But there is no expiration on your loans and defaulting means the government would probably dock your paycheck from work.

    Some states like Georgia(or maybe it was S. Carolina) have a program where if you get if make 90% grade point average in highschool, you can go to any publicly funded university in the state for free.

    California State Universities have incredibly cheap tuition. You still have to pay your own housing, food, living expenses.
