When people make money off the suffering of others. They give faint hope to others and for that faint hope of improving their situation, they most likely wreck their entire life.
Giving usurious loans to students who never be able to pay back the loans. Charging interest on it and also never being able to get out of it even by bankruptcy or the most dire life threatening situations. The goverment commits usury by borrowing from middle class citizens and lending it to corporations who give the money to the extremely rich and powerful.

An answer to usury is lending circles. These have a long history in various countries. The non-profit Mission Asset Fund introduces them in the USA and take it one step further in that members of the lending circle are able to boost their credit scores. Each member will, for example, put $100 in the shared pot monthly. Then, after ten months that person will get $1000 with no interest rate. Their monthly contributions will be reported to a credit bureau to enhance their credit score.
Pay day loans are criminal. Usury! I’m going to join a lending circle instead.
