Society's Debt (June 1938 Bank of Wiggins Insert) "Society's Debt" "What has posterity ever done for me'?" careless ones ask in their indifference to the future. Every succeeding generation owes a debt to the generation that follows. Those that come after us are entitled to enjoy the opportunities thal we inherited from those who came before. Though the government, which in the aggregate is all of us, does not owe its people a living, it does owe them an opportunity to support themselves. That is the secret of America's singular success and her unprecedented prosperity. And prosperity is no l)t of gold at the rainbow's end, fashioned out of empty dreams and idle hands. Prosperity is no synthetic. Prosperity is realistic. It is something produced by men and women who learn early that they must work and save, There is no other way to achieve it.
