Are we living a vast Ponzi scheme of someone?

Here I’m just asking the question. Was Bernard Madoff on to something? Is life a huge Ponzi Scheme? Is “human future a kind of Ponzi scheme where the value of our own lives is always dependent on the well-being of future generations?”

I’ll try to answer this, at least for myself, in a future Blog. If you can’t wait for my answer go to: Mark Johnston’s review of Death and the Afterlife by Samuel Scheffler, in the Boston Review of January 2, 2014, where he asks the question, Is Life a Ponzi Scheme?
