How to pay it all back?

The national debt of many countries has risen to astronomical levels, with debt to GDP percentages rising ever higher, can it ever be paid back?, if so, how?

Is there other ways out of this monstrous debt?

I , personally feel that a first step should be the prevention of printing more paper currency, and the people having a say in the decision making process.
