    • The ideal outcome would be that it is perfect and sets a good example for youtube as to what people want from ISworlds Rewind. It would also be great if the money made from it were donated to charity (of course the money over the cost it is to make it). Also if they had all good youtubers, aka no one incredibly problematic just because they are popular. (Not naming name because I know that can be subjective)

  • Student loan debt is no different than credit card debt. If you created the debt you should pay it! If they cancel student debt they should cancel debt across the board. Credit cards, defaulted loans etc.

  • I am 23 and I have about 45k in student debt. I had scholarships and grants, I worked 7 days / week during school, and I graduated early. My dad cannot retire because of the loan he took out to pay for the out of pocket cost of my school. When I first graduated all my degree got me was a job as a receptionist. I don't know when I will be able to move out of my moms place. I still have credit card debt from during my school years. I don't regret my degree, but I don't wish this on those who want an education. I'll be in debt for such a long time. Probably my whole life. School debt is ridiculous and if it weren't for the covid relief, I would have defaulted on my loan. I hope they work on student debt, but I am skeptical that there will be any relief.

  • AOC, a NY Resident, went to Boston University and accumulated insane debt in order to work in a job that didn't require a degree... while simultaneously eschewing cheaper options like CUNY and SUNY schools... Now, she wants to cancel student debt and make public universities free (years after ignoring them for her own education)... Yeah... no. To AOC and all the others with insane student debt: don't make your bad decisions everyone else's problems...

  • So on Student Debt - I have about 50k in loans because I was told either I pay now or I pay later. And I did have the education on how to pick loans which ones accrue interest during or after college. But then you have loan sharks like Sallie mae which promise low rates for those who can't get government loans. I unfortunately took one thinking I can pay this off because the only other loan offered for a private school was the parent plus loan which my mom didn't qualify for. I transfered schools because I just couldn't keep paying those rates but either way, paying for school is always a now or later thing. If we forgive even a portion of student loans imagine how much faster we can get students giving back to our economy! Second - my bf isn't going to school because fasfa determined his dad made too much for him to get anything. His dad, the second he turned 18, cut him off of everything even health insurance. So maybe we could just back track and even reevaluate whos information we need for loans etc. Because I know so many students who were on their own. Like if your parents can afford to pay and do good on them but a lot of our debt is from us wanting better but getting fucked because the government wants us to rely on our parents when our parents want us to be independent

  • I am a huge believer in the value of and need for higher education for all, but the cost/benefit ratio is shifting for many considering these opportunities. Additionally, underprivileged communities are facing an outsized burden in their journeys through college. This is not normal; like almost every other metric in which the United States is actually exceptional - it’s not for a positive reason, we’re the worst or among them. On the personal end, I recently graduated with my Master’s, have still been unable to find a job, and am carrying the load of $60,000+ in student loans. I want to continue my education and further my contributions but I cannot do that right now and likely well into the future. We all benefit from an educated populace that can contribute in-full, not from a place of scarcity. This is a severe drag on: birth rates, home ownership, long-term financial solvency, just to name a few. Some wildly rough numbers would put the equivalent debt burden, if *every* single living American had the same amount of debt (based on 2020 population estimates, without adjusting for COVID deaths because we suck), at ~$5,425.36. Wild. We need to do better.

  • I chose to serve in the military, and big chunk of my reasoning was to be able to pursue higher education without debt. Not everyone has that opportunity, like my sister for example who is not able to join and is pursuing a double masters to follow her dreams. She has thousands upon thousands of dollars in student loan debt hanging over her like the Sword of Damocles, and now she's having to weigh the decision of working for a non profit that lines up with her passion or trying to get a higher paying job. I can understand the basic sentiment of "I had to pay my loans back and it's not fair that other people's debt will be cancelled". However, I think that we as a society need to really look at the hyper individualism that has taken root, and question if that's truly who we want to be. Personally, I think that we should be more focused on how we can lift those around us, and increase our over all quality of life. I guess that's probably the most verbose way to say I support cancelling student loan debt, and Biden's plan to make state colleges and universities free.

  • I’m 23 and graduated during the pandemic. Student debt (or in my case) the lack thereof was THE deciding factor of where I ended up going to school. I chose to forgo some opportunities in order to attend a university that limited my debt; and allowing me to graduate debt free. Starting (what I had thought my immediate post grad life) my true adult life without crippling debt was very important to me.

  • Student debt solution is to allow the students to be able to sue the collages and universities. This does two things kills schools that can't produce students that can't get jobs and would force collages to select students that they feel are likey to get jobs that will pay enough such that the debt is not an issue. The goverment sorry the tax payers should not have to pay for the education of other citizens that have not improved there ability to get a job or imporove there career. The problem is the Collages sue the shit out of them for over price courses and the inability of them to get you the education or training to land you a job. Others should not have to pay off your higher education just seems silly you didn't go to trade school and yet the builder is paying off your law degree seems sus.

  • I am glad that Philip is comfortable with sharing his opinion again and that he figured out how to in a conversational way. Even if you do not agree with what he says, you can see both sides of a conversation, look into it, and decide yourself. Yes, there are those who just always agree due to influence, as with any popular youtuber, but at least they are getting involved and aware of an issue rather than being indifferent and not having an opinion at all.

  • I got extremely lucky and go to the university with the lowest tuition in my state and even then I know many people that are still having to take out loans. Personally I think that they shouldn’t need to and that if anything loan forgiveness could be based off of degree completion

  • I'm 23 and still saving up for university, I haven't gone yet because I understand how expensive it really is. If I knew I would get a free ride from the government I would have gone years ago. Why should everyone else pay (with their tax dollars) for the mistakes of some?

  • Lmao imagine the worst reaction someone can think of is “but I payed off my student loans, so screw anyone who doesn’t have to?” Like, if that’s as angry as people get we have ZERO problems. Also, that logic as an idea is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. That would be like going back to the 1800s and arguing against emancipation by saying “but all these people who were slaves are gonna be angry that their kids don’t have to...”

  • I went to school and worked my butt off at a job 12+ hours a day only to learn I couldn’t handle mentally and emotionally the job but I kept going and owe just under 10000$ now I put every cent I could into my debt. If even 10000 could be passed to help those with student debt so many people will at least get a breath or a weight off their chests. If it’s good business wise and helps Americans why not, let the over inflated colleges get mad and then pass legislation capping tuition on them too

    SamanthaSamantha2 dögum síðan
  • Sure, lets forgive the student debt and show that its ok for anyone to borrow money that they know that they cant pay back. So when life dosen't work out the way they want it to, all they'll have to do is cry and bitch that its too much or unfair and then the debt will be wiped away. Some people didn't get to go to college because they knew that taking on student loans would be impossible to pay back. Or maybe I'm just jaded, perhaps i should just rack up all the student debt I can then cry that its too much and or i can't pay and then itll just be taken away and I'll have gotten a college education for free and have learned that crying is all anyone has to do to get ahead in this life.

  • When it comes to things like student debt I'm so thankful to be Canadian. Don't get me wrong, I hate having it myself and 30k is a big chunk for someone that isn't going to be making a lot for awhile... but compared to students in the U.S sometimes paying 30k for a year of uni it looks like chum change. I have a BA and post degree certificate for 30k but it would have been even less if I would have applied for grants earlier in my degree... I could have only have 15k of student debt if I had grants for my first two years... I only got them for the last two.

  • Canadian here but student loans, in general, need to be looked at. It's a messy system, I'm 29, had an original student loan debt of about 53,000 dollars, in the last 4 years I pulled 72 hour a week, literal 24-hour shifts and paid off two thirds of that , and yet the debt isn't going away. With covid came the loss of my job and while I did eventually find a new one it was a loss of half my income, with an apartment rent of $1400 dollars a month staying on top of my loan debt is paying the bare minimum it isn't making it go away. With a job means no further government support due to covid, my story is not unique. Students everywhere are struggling, it's a broken system that has lead to a disillusioned generation that has no savings for the future, that will be working likely into their 70s to avoid homelessness.

  • I'm not as knowledgeable on the subject as I should be, but I am a college student and I'm lucky enough to not be in debt due to a scholarship, but personally I think more people might attend and graduate college if it was either less expensive or the debt wasn't so crazy. I've had some friends drop out because they couldn't afford tuition, and a couple more that are thinking about it and might have to before they can graduate.

  • I’ve been terrified of student debt since I started college 5 years ago. I’ve literally tried to work or take other options so that I didn’t have more that 4,000 grand of student debt by the time I leave college and it’s so so terrifying to think that when I get into the market there may not be a job for me and I won’t really have the income to even pay that 4,000. I definitely think that even if I’m able to pay and I’m lucky enough, who gives a shit, let others get their loans forgiven because this entire system has turned them into prey for something that’s suppose to boost their lives.

  • My thoughts on student loan forgiveness: I am a high school teacher in suburban South Carolina. I earned 3 degrees in undergrad and am currently working on my masters. And I still have to work a second job just to cover mortgage. In South Carolina, there are ways for loans to be forgiven, but only if you teach at a “low income” school. If you are lucky enough to have a job at a nice school, you’re stuck with your loans. If my loans could be forgiven, I could quit the second job and make my students the priority, rather than making sure my bills are paid.

  • Here is my two bits on my student debt: Over 10 years ago I graduated with a double major BS degree with only $4,000 left in debt, primarily to my aggressive pursuit of scholarships. I graduated with Honors, was a leader of many student charity organizations, and went to a local State university in Texas while living with my parents and working a part time job. This is fine, this is ok, and I could have easily paid this off. I then decided to continue my education at the Master level which was recommended to me by literally all my professors, family, research, and financial experts at the time, as your employment prospects with just a BS in Psychology and Sociology we limited. Cool. Ok. Lets do it. I was also exceedingly younger than most, starting college at 16 and finishing my BS at 20. I tend decided that, the best place to continue my education to get skill sets I did not currently possess (Social Psychology with a heavy focus on Qualitative Research Methods) that I would need to go to a university in England. Cool. Lets do this. Assuming, as many would have thought at the time, I'd have a $60,000 job available after completing this program, I accepted a $40,000 loan to ensure I could afford the cost of living in England, the tuition, books, and everything I'd need to survive for the expidited 1 year advance program for Applied Social Psychology. I completed this program successfully, did quite well, learned a lot, and had some of the best experiences of my life. Fast forward a decade later. I'm working as a mental health case manager for a public Local Mental Health authority in my original city because I'm on Public Service Loan Forgiveness because that $40k has ballooned into $84,795. My home mortgage? I'm already paid down to $88k. Let that sink in. My decade old debt is about to EXCEED the value of what I owe on a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom 2 bath home in a central area in my city. I have a credit score of 737. I pay my shit. I take care of business. I'm about as Adult as Adulting can be at 31. I own a home and barely make ends meet with my income due to being single and having two renters who live with me. I'm 6 years into my qualified payments of my 10 year debt forgiveness plan, which VERY few have successfully completed, and the government has fought tooth and nail under DeVose to remove and not honor for many who completed. I hate to be "that guy" but I've done quite literally everything "right" when it comes to all the advice and support I was offered. I worked my ASS off to complete my degrees and to try to make sound, fiscal choices with an uncertain future. I make $17.20 / hr. I have mental health clients, friends with just high school education, and many others who I know who make more than me despite having a Master degree. I literally postponed 5 years of my working life, worked hard as shit to get good grades, support my community, and continue to support the neediest people in my community. I'm sorry if this sounds entitled, but fuck it, I've EARNED that debt to be forgiven. I just want a chance to be able to make a difference in my community while getting paid for my experience and degreed status. I make less than a police officer, teacher, registered nurse STARTING out, despite having an advanced degree and 7 total years of mental healthcare experience as a clinician. I think they should cancel out ANY of the interest accrued since the loan was issued, and forgive at least up to $50k. That would cancel out my debt and finally allow me to seek a job that can actually allow me to afford a basic living with my level of experience and to USE my experience for the betterment of my community at large. (my current work is fulfilling, but it's putting a bandaid on a wound). If my degree's "value" has not increased since that loan was issued, why in heck should the "debt owed." This is secured debt that I'm literally almost entirely incapable of every canceling out through traditional means. It is a predatory as it can possibly ever get.

  • I have about $14,000 in student loans, and have a graduate degree, but I also went to a low cost school, and didn't take out more than I need. I think there needs to be some forgiveness, but I also think personal responsibility needs to play into it as well. If you have 250k+ in student loans, I think you need to take a long hard look at why you spent that much. (Though that's not the majority of borrowers)

  • I am a college student. I have student loans, but I don’t have to start paying them for another year. Student debt relief would NOT devalue the experience of college. College is hard. It’s a responsibility. You have to apply yourself at least enough to pass the classes to get through it. it’s insulting to college students to assume the value of college comes from the cost, as if everyone with wealth or student loans has a college degree. Not everyone who gets to college finishes it, which is what gives higher education it’s value.

  • With the student loan debt, I think it’s good that some money will be forgiven but I also think they should stop the interest on those loan debts. I’ve seen a lot of videos of people saying something like “I have $70,000 of student loan debt, and after paying it for X amount of years I can say that I owe $70,000”. Idk maybe it’s just me. I’m not an expert of topics like these but that’s just my take on it. Also, students should not have to pay for parking at the school they go to.

    • @eg6gsr My argument was there are people who make sacrifices to get through college and NOT be a slave to debt. Then there are those who eat sushi, buy cars, iphones, get starbucks everyday and afford it off of their student loans. Then claim they 'struggled financially' and have 100s of ks in debt and want it forgiven. That's total shit and anyone who hasn't gotten everything handed to them in life will agree. So, yes, my last comment make sense. If you're not going to college to get a good high paying degree. DON'T GO. And if you're encouraging people to go, stop.

    • @Sp00mster That doesn't make sense on any level at all. 1.Your argument is " people shouldn't be allowed forgiveness because others before them had to struggle" and that is what i'm arguing against so what you said doesn't counter anything. 2. What Biden is doing is trying to help those that haven already been in "slavery" as you call it so they can move on with their lives. So as I said your last comment makes no sense at all because it's not referring to anything in your original comment or my response to it. Lets not change the narrative

    • @eg6gsr The difference is you can choose not to go into this slavery and that's what Biden and everyone else should be pushing. Just to show you how silly that argument is.

  • I was initially paying more than a home mortgage in loan repayments, according to older relatives at the time. Around $100k of debt, and that wasn't for a medical or law degree. Thankfully I had family that was able and willing to let me live at home for MUCH longer than I expected to need it. However, I do not believe that we should forgive some student debt without also building in safety measures for future students. Tuition costs need to come down and be reasonable when compared to the average/estimated income of program graduates. Higher Ed needs to justify their asking prices. Student loans shouldn't be zero interest. There's no incentive for lenders to give money when there's nothing in it for them. If they do give out free money, the interest rates on all other loans would rise to cover the cost. There should be a maximum interest rate, ideally 6% or less, and variable rates should have a limit on how much they can rise within a year. I'd be in favor of student loans only having a fixed rate. We need to address the real issue and not go for the quick wins all the time. It's the same issue with healthcare. Once a quick fix is in place, it becomes "good enough". That's unacceptable.

  • I paid for my entire way to complete my bachelors degree. Got scholarships through my associates and worked full time through my bachelors. It was hard. I wouldn’t recommend it, especially not on top of an internship. I will be finishing my masters in a year and a half and I will be walking out of the masters program with some heavy student loans. I would love to see this be enacted. Multiple countries offer free higher education. I don’t understand why Americans think that if you don’t spend your life earnings on something you won’t appreciate it

  • It took me about 10 years to pay off my student loan debt. My husband is still paying his off. He got his degree and then the college he went to shut down so he has been unable to get a job in his field. Dont get me wrong, he enjoys what he is doing now, but it doesn't pay nearly as well as a job he could have gotten with his degree... due to this we will be paying off his debt for years to come. I would love universal post secondary education to become a thing. I dont know how I'm going to afford to put my kids through college.

  • I think 4 year college should be free...but...masters, ph.d. degrees...those should be paid for either by student loans, financial aid, or your own money...those degrees have more value and actually paying for it is part of the commitment to the degree, the follow thru... What I'm more concerned about is the quality of the free college education...our public school system is free...and it's horrible in most cases! It's my opinion that should college education become free, the quality of that education will go down because these professors were paid for the quality of their course work...should their pay be reduced....so does the quality of the course work. This is happening in the public school system...it will happen in the college education system. Basically, the country's education system needs an overhaul period. Do I have an idea on how to do that, nope I don't.

  • I live in the Netherlands pand with 55.000 euro loan, I am considered to have a very High student dept. the good thing is, that at the moment the interest is 0% and never gets over 1%. you pay off what you can according to your salary for 15 years. whatever is left after that time will be forgiven. In my country a student loan of around 20.000 euros is considered normal. the interest rate is always very low so it is doable. the problem is that our government keeps chipping away at our education system and college and student housing keeps getting more and more expensive every year. creating a bigger and bigger wealth gap, because poorer students are less inclined to start college because of the costs.

  • My two cents on the student debt thing: I'm from a country where after a certain grade point, students are eligible for free education for 6 semesters, this usually covering a Bachelor's Degree. My experience is that due to this opportunity many people push back entering the "adult life" and starting an actual career in favor of studying something, which in a lot (not all) of cases is pretty damn useless in the long run. We have seen an influx of people studying literature and culture, etc, which down the line has no value at all. Sure, you can get cultured, but lately you can absolutely do that by watching things versus writing your diploma on Pride and Prejudice, or the lack of feminism in Sherlock Holmes, etc. I wrote mine on Doctor Who which was great fun as a 20 year old, but pretty fucking useless in the long run. I wasted three years of my life going to university, studying as an English Major here in Hungary, and that paper is absolutely useless for me, as it is not needed for any job available. Maybe if I had to pay for it myself, I would have thought twice about what I will study, or if I needed University at all. I think that the US needs to give money to those students who actually study something useful, like economy, IT, they study to be doctors or lawyers, not something that means nothing outside of the walls of the university.

  • I’m currently in my fourth year of college. I wanted to go to a nice school out of state, but chose to stay here for discounted tuition. I worked in high school to save for college and I’ve been working all throughout college to pay for my tuition. This is the first year I’ve been required to take out a loan due to unforeseen financial difficulties. I’ve never had time for college parties other typical college experiences. I’ve pinched pennies for everything to sacrifice for my tuition. If my debt is going to be forgiven, should I just take out a bunch of loans now if everyone else who took the easy route won’t hace consequences. I could have gone to a private college that charges 5x for tuition but I didn’t because it was too expensive. Why should people who are irresponsible with their choices get special treatment?

  • Any amount of student loan debt cancellation is a huge help for me. I was sold a bag of lies in my life regarding “go to college, be great, don’t drop out....oh and also we (family) won’t help you pay for it... but you definitely have to stay in school to matter in this family and in life”. Welp that was a crock of shit and I wholeheartedly regret my decisions, especially since I couldn’t even finish because it was so expensive.

  • As a European, Hearing about America is always horrifying. Student loan debt is one of the many insanities that I struggle to understand. Why in the hell are universities so expensive?? (and then I see videos and pictures of American university sports stadiums, changing rooms, etc.) When I was 18 I went to university in Scotland and tuition was free, so when I had a mentila breakdown and dropped out I only had to pay for general living costs. When I was 20 I went to university in the Netherlands where it was fairly cheap. I again had a breakdown and once again was only concerned with daily living costs. Now I am 26, working full time and attending the Open University, the leading online university. It’s English so it’s expensive by European standards. I pay module to module, so last year I took the full 120 credits and had the choice to pay per module instantly (1500-3000£) or take out a loan for them. I took a loan and over the year I paid 500-600€ per month (factoring in exchange rates). This is expensive but doable and is extremely forgiving. If I have any issues with payment they are willing to work with you. America is fucking terrifying sometimes though with what you consider normal, and the general blinders most have to the rest of the world.

  • I owe exactly $7,500.68 in student loans. I was fortunate that between help from my parents and a golf scholarship, I was able to finish undergrad debt free, and only had to worry about loans for grad school. My student loan debt is my biggest financial stress, and my payment is relatively small compared to that of some of my peers (less than $300/month). I know people who paid more per month in interest alone before the freeze on payments and interest from the COVID relief packages. Despite the thousands of dollars I've paid towards this debt, and years of on time payments I've made, I would be THRILLED for everyone to get some relief. I can't get that money back, but my generation could be freed from this student debt crisis. I know it would be a huge weight off my shoulders, so I could only image the relief it would give to so many people.

  • In the UK student debt is written off after 25 years and payments are frozen if you are earning less than minimum wage. Otherwise, you have to be paying at least 8% annual wages (before tax) towards your debt which I think it is pretty fair. But paying more obviously means you pay it off quicker and will be charged less interest. Your loan is interest free until you graduate though.

Eventually, it turns out I'm disabled and my debt was written off (with LOTS of stipulations). One of which is that I can't get a job for three years or if I make over a certain amount of money the debt magically just pops back up. If I'm suddenly un-disabled the debt re-appears and so on and so forth. It's STILL anxiety-inducing even though it's "gone"
