"Making a killing off vital common goods like education and healthcare and public infrastructure is venal, anti-social conduct, to be condemned and not indemnified. The money we borrowed from banks was not theirs to begin with—it was created as interest-bearing debt, only when we signed the loan agreement. The long record of fraud and deceit on the part of bankers disqualifies their right to be made whole—it is more moral to deny them than to pay them back."

"TEAGAN: If it’s any comfort, your mom won’t be dead in a year. ME: How do you figure? TEAGAN: I’ve met your mom. She’s a narcissist. Narcissists take a long time to die. ME: You’re funny. TEAGAN: I’m serious."
