P.S. It's not outlined in explicit detail on the membership page, but Medium editors pay writers well when we commission stories from them. Independent writers earn money by publishing through our Partner Program. Your contribution helps all of this happen!

Of course, I hope you'll continue to click on and read stories from Medium, and other outlets, even if you're not in a position to pay right now. Bless.

FWIW: I believe you should also consider paying for other publications, if you enjoy their writing and feel the business model is ethical. The digital ad industry is a disaster; we should be happy to support outlets on a subscription basis if it means moving away from it 💪

I'm obviously happy to promote our journalism ~constantly~, but I'd like to state as soberly as possible that $50 for an entire year (or $5/month, if you prefer) is an incredible deal by any metric, but especially compared to other paywalls you may have seen. Consider it!

anyway i agree it feels honest and tragic, though still: they're not buckled over in heaving sobs, and even with their monstrous debt they have access to privileges — private schools or a nordstrom card to begin with! — that many are denied, so i can see how the response happens

ultimately the response to this interview would have been a complete 180 if the tone was just a little different? the facts are horrifying but the way they're articulated is provoking the outrage, i think

like no one is about to argue that the Nordstrom thing, for example, is remotely reasonable, except this family is now completely owned by corporate debt holders because they were so senseless with money years ago, and it snowballed, and that's kind of terrible? idk

hmm my hot take on this is that i don't understand how people are being so cruel about these people at all and that it's perfectly illustrative of the vicious cycle of debt that seems reasonable at first and then totally consumes and destroys people ::::))))

(We're planning a future-looking package at Medium right now, which is why I'm thinking about this so much 🌞 Which reminds me: If you have pitches for tech stories with that future flavor, whether they're about innovations or the future of current services, hmu damon@medium.com)
