Payback as a Social Divider

“When you take out a loan you should pay it back like everybody else has to.” Set aside for a moment whether or not student loan forgiveness is fair or right, as in this comment. Go a step further and view the hypocrisy of many high-profile and/or affluent people who are shouting that comment from the top suite of a corporation, people whose businesses received loans to help them during the worst of Covid and then had those loans forgiven. It seems to me that they believe that struggling students are less deserving than businesses. Or maybe they just want to maintain the growing gap between the Haves and Have-Nots.
