8. I understand what you're getting at.

In general terms I more or less agree with you, but point #1 contains a serious logical error. Debt is definitionally both a liability and an asset. One could just as easily say we are setting up future generations to be owed a boatload of money. The real question is distributional (who will be taxed, and who will collect the payments).
