Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Interest is still a payment for services rendered. Specifically, it is a payment for the service of not sending goons with guns to kick you out of your home. (That's also the service taxes are paid for.)

BTW, why only landless need this "protection?" Not owners? They pay neither interest, rent nor taxes.

One would think that property owners need protection against the poor, right?
