That's easy: "original sin".  The theory is, you were created out of a
process that involved sin, therefore you bear part of the burden of that
sin just by existing.  Just like debt slavery, there might be a notion that
you could theoretically do enough good to get out of it, but the people in
control keep changing the numbers and moving the goalposts so that you can
never escape their clutches.
