It's worth noting that money isn't really something natural either. There's this strange myth that people who can make money are somehow superior. In truth, someone who is good with money is really no different than someone who is good at something else. I would go as far to argue that the rest of us are in fact starting to suffer from it. Not because we aren't "good with money" but rather because it has taken precedence over everything else. In a way, even if you are not good with money you have to have it....and debt is the only way for that.
