“I’d say, ‘Trane, man, why are you doing that, beating on your chest and howling in the microphone?’. He’d say, ‘Man, I can’t find anything else to play on the horn.’ He exhausted the saxophone. He couldn’t find nothing else to play… he ran out of horn”

Debt Collectors Cashing In on Student Loans

n

This article is not a very interesting read but this paragraph captures so much in so few words:

“With an outstanding balance of more than $1 trillion, student loans have become a silver lining for the debt collection industry at a time when its once-thriving business of credit card collection has diminished and the unemployment rate has made collection a challenge.”

Has modern-day-western-society really become so self-defeating? It seems to me that ideas like society or community are now empty shells … on the upside … this is an opportunity to refill them with new and better ideas and contexts.
