Contrary to Nature
In his Cantos, Ezra Pound described usury as contra naturam, a sin against nature:
With Ezra Pound, we observe that usury is the cause, rather than the effect of that which "slays the child in the womb" (abortion), "stayeth the young man's courting" (penury) and "lyeth between the young bride and her bridegroom" (contraception). The prime offenders are private banks, which are empowered to create money, or credit, out of nothing and ballooning debt by usury, the charging of interest on debt.
