Can we live without compounding interest rate?

It is an established fact that interest is oppressive in any form to anyone. Individual debtor or government all have to suffer. I am not an expert but to me it seems to be a vicious trap. Compounding rate are always on the rise increasing debt many folds in no time. Some would say that same compounding applies to savings account then why its bad? but time value of money shows that currency depreciates more quickly than other specially in Debt seeking countries.
