Debt exists in society as a very strong motivating force, but it also hides in plain sight. In this way, we can say that debt exists in society as a corollary of religion. The churches and creeds of religions embody their existence among us, but the real achievement can be witnessed in the extension of worship beyond the church into - potentially - every facet of a person’s life.
Similarly, debt has its own spaces of veneration and documentation. Banks and annual reports are the public face of finance - the substructure of debt. The resonance between these social forces is not happenstance. Debt can mirror religion because it relies on the same principle of personal responsibility.
