Debt Forgiveness Is The Basis of Modern Civilization

Religions were founded on the concept of debt forgiveness.

For example, Matthew 6:12 says:

Periodic times of debt forgiveness – or debt “jubilees” – were a basic part of the early Jewish and Christian religions, as well as Babylonian culture.

David Graeber, author of “Debt: The First 5,000 Years” told Democracy Now:
