No, my statement was that resource distribution methods are a necessary evil because people are too immoral to share freely on a global scale so we invented a game instead. Perfect anarchic communism (star trek federation style) would be my ideal but human nature is too screwed up for that, and I learned a long time ago that you can't fix the world and you will just kill yourself trying, so try to be happy where you can.
Reminds me some of the logic people have when insurance companies have to pay out large sums. Its the insurance company, right. Well where does the insurance gets its funds to pay out? From individuals, not a company.
While it may not be a moral issue, it is a issue of what is a persons word worth.
Interesting point. Are you entitled to your car or home at the expense of the lender?
Is the fact that the lender is 'bigger' or has more money or can spread that loss out over others justification?
Or does the lender accept this implicitly and consent to that risk when they make the loan?
Its all just social construct. If people didn't treat each other like filth then all of human history would be different let alone our current systems. Hell we would have probably never developed our technology so far to even have modern capitalism because the world would be much more idyllic and small scale. It may have been the worst thing to happen to us because at least with modern technology we have a much greater chance of propagating to multiple planets and continuing the species.

I am debt-phobic. I am doing everything possible to pay my 30 year loan off in 10 years...because it is my money I am saving....

I think, barring extreme unforeseen circumstances, there is never an excuse not to pay back loans. If ahead of time you know you probably won't be able to pay it back, then don't take it out. Live within your means for once.
