A Review of The Student Loan Scam: The Most Oppressive Debt in U.S. History – and How We Can Fight Back by Alan Michael Collinge

By Carolyn Betts and Catherine Austin Fitts

The Preface begins:

“The truth is that I never considered student loans to be an especially interesting topic. College debt, I believed, was a necessary evil – to be repaid expeditiously and then forgotten even more quickly. However, what I once thought of as an uninteresting issue has come to dominate my life.”

This highly informative book was written by a 1998 graduate of Cal Tech with three degrees in aerospace engineering who, after a student loan nightmare that took him from an original relatively modest $38,000 Sallie Mae loan to an obligation of $80,000 by 2002 and $103,000 by mid 2005. At that point he started the website www.studentloanjustice.org in an effort to hook up with others in similar straits, share stories and become politically active in restoring consumer protections for student loans.

In The Student Loan Scam, we read blood-curdling personal stories from Collinge’s website that should make any parent of a college-bound student re-think any plans to saddle a loved-one with student loan obligations under current law. In the event the typical graduate with student loans does not get a $100,000 a year job right out of school and remain gainfully employed at an increasing salary for the next decade or more, student loan debts could result in financial ruin, loss of professional credentials and security clearances and, in some cases, suicide and debilitating depression.

We find out that the current student loan system is nothing like the one in place when the baby boomers were in college, when Sallie Mae was a quasi-governmental entity with its activities limited by its federal statutory charter. Those loans were made at favorable interest rates and had interest that started accruing only after graduation. Post-graduation, they were serviced in accordance with consumer-friendly servicing standards.

In Stanley Kubrick’s thriller, Eyes Wide Shut, we watch as Dr. Bill Harford (played by Tom Cruise) attends a private party given by a secret society whose members have the power, among other things, to kill with impunity.

If you have not seen Eyes Wide Shut, I strongly recommend watching it if you want to understand the real privacy issues related to the mandatory health records database proposed by the Administration.

Aaron Russo was a fearless, talented, capable man. He loved life and people. He could not fathom why millions of Americans were adapting to fascism. I got to know Aaron while he was filming “America: From Freedom to Fascism.” If you have not seen it, I strongly recommend it, including the section regarding RFID chips.

Before his death, Aaron gave an interview about his conversations with a member of the Rockefeller family regarding plans to further centralize control of the human race.

In this context, Aaron was referring to RFID chips which are human microchip implants. Such an implant is “an integrated circuit device or RFID tag encased in silicate glass and implanted into a human’s body. Such subdermal implants can be used for information storage, including personal identification, medical history, medications, allergies, and contact information.”

I  was proud to call Aaron my friend. If he said that he was told that plans were underway to create a system to integrate the financial system into centrally controlled chips planted  physically in our bodies, than that is what he was told.

As you assess the advisability of your taxes and government resources funding more federal government databases, particularly those regarding our bodies which could function as a critical component to implement such a system,  I would encourage you to listen to this interview with Aaron and integrate his knowledge and experience into your own.
