Certainly there will be a time in the not-too-distant
future, when a usuryfree time currency will become the ‘economic lifeboat” when
their (the usurers) economic titanic of usury-based debt money completely
collapses. It is prudent and wise to launch a usuryfree time currency in your
local community NOW, and therefore, be prepared when their usury-based, debt
money system totally collapses.
However, at this particular time – early in 2013 – so many
of our fellow-citizens are jaded, skeptical and add to this the simple fact
that human beings resist changing their habits and most people are still
hesitant to embrace and promote a usuryfree time currency in their respective,
It seems that no matter where we live in the world, debtors
have to experience severe economic pain before they are motivated to
action. For example, “Barter and Alternative Currencies” are gaining in popularity in Greece.
Over the past two decades, consumers have acquired a buying habit of shopping at the
giant, trans-national, retail corporations (eg. WalMart and others) to save a
few pennies and by doing so many of our smaller retail merchants in local communities have been
forced to close or face bankruptcy.
For 30+ years, myself and numerous other usuryfree creative
have been promoting and advocating “usuryfree time currency” as the optimal
community currency that will become the ultimate catalyst to encourage
consumers to change their shopping habits and make a commitment to shop
Indeed, local merchants and home-based enterprises are
encouraged to lead the way by embracing the usuryfree time currency movement
and agreeing to accept the wholesale cost portion of any negotiated sale in
usury-based debt money (federal cash) and the retail mark-up portion of the
sale in any usuryfree time currency.
It has been suggested that a stepping-stone might be the key
to motivating people to action. Of course, much, self-imposed re-education is required
for anyone to fully understand the power and potential of we-the-people taking
our power back by learning that we do so by using less and less of their (the
usurers’) usury-based, debt money and more and more of our own usuryfree time
The most likely stepping-stone to expedite the ushering in
the new age of usuryfree living is the universal discount coupon known as the
“Gold Nugget.” John “The Anti-Poverty Engineer” Turmel refers to the “Gold Nugget” as
the “Super Multi-Business, No-Name Coupon” and he explains it at this link.
Readers are invited to list their products and/or services
for a discount in the “Gold Nugget Directory – A Universal Discount Coupon.” Please list myself "Tom J. Kennedy" as the referrer and my email address as: firstname.lastname@example.org when you list your products and/or services in the Gold Nugget Directory.
As I understand it, merchants and independent entrepreneurs are
invited to list their products and/or services in the Gold Nugget Directory and
offer a discount to consumers. After some experience with the Gold Nuggets, and
with sufficient re-education about modern money creation, it is anticipated
that these awakening business owners will acquire a more complete understanding
of the power and potential of the usuryfree time currency movement and proudly
embrace the concept.
Historically, the challenge has always been to build a large, local database
of merchants and independent entrepreneurs who are willing to list their
products and/or services and are agreeing to accept a portion of usuryfree time
currency for each negotiated exchange or sale.
It is anticipated that those merchants and independent
entrepreneurs who are enrolled with the Gold Nugget Directory will shift their
thinking and be open and ready to eventually embracing the usuryfree time
currency movement. By doing so, they will be able to earn full value for their
exchanges instead of having to settle for a discount to secure the sale. Of
course, both the Gold Nugget and any usuryfree time currency could be accepted along
with a portion of federal cash for any negotiated sale.
While the Gold Nugget is a good stepping-stone, trading with
a usuryfree, time currency is even more attractive to those who fully
understand the evil and immoral effects of the design flaw of usury on our
orthodox, economic system of debt money.
