As the average person going out these days is an irresponsible cretin and takes no responsibility for themselves, companies like this Klarma are dangerous.

Better financial education is needed. Public schools are failing Britain’s youngsters. Speaking first hand, it’s a system where teachers are rewarded on ‘length of service’ rather than performance.

The bigger problem is that society is rudderless. There is no 'end goal' for the civilisation, & by proxy, the economy.

Religion has been used to justify terrible human actions. Along with the advent of amazing science, materialists mandated the scrapping of any notion that a human being is worth more than just a bag of chemicals and water.
Early in the days of the Communist rule in China they rounded up all Taoist masters and had them imprisoned, placed under house arrest or worse.

A tradition of several thousand years investigating the Cosmos and Man's place in it was suppressed and almost erased. The benefit? Stop free thinking and personal development in the bigger picture when you can keep them uninformed = easier to control.
