We concern ourselves as we should in attempting to level the playing field. We have equal rights laws for handicapped, gay, lesbian, ethnicity, religion, etc.
How about equal rights for future generations? Every day we spend more than we take in we are loading up their credit card, burdening them with debt, absolutely assuring that they will not have the same opportunity we had.
And we are now adding debt at the rate of 4,800 million dollars a day. Is it fair that we spend that much of their money to maintain our lifestyle?
