Our orthodox, economic system of usury-based, debt money is taking many debtors from riches to rags and it seems that economies everywhere around the world are in irreversible economic decline. In 2012, many countries are facing national bankruptcy. It seems that in the not-too-distant future, we can expect vast social, cultural and political changes concurrent with significant economic change.
In our current economy (local and global) usury is making debts unmanageable. Only epic change will transform economic chaos into economic recovery. Currently, there is much evidence of flashing yellow lights warning of financial panic and money scandals in politics at every level of government – municipal, provincial/state, and federal.
The present economic malaise did not start yesterday. The sequence of events that is leading us into the Grand-daddy Depression of this 21st Century are historically rooted in the evil and immoral function of usury on our debt money system. An economic, tidal wave is sweeping across the globe and it is unlikely to be stopped. We can eventually expect a total collapse of our orthodox, economic system of usury-based, debt money.
A penetrating look at the function of usury throughout history reveals that in the future, usury must be abolished forever if we are to avoid complete, social breakdown. The optimal way to avoid a clash between creditors and debtors is to offer debtors an alternative choice. I daresay that when debtors are given a choice (a) Life With Usury or (b) Life Without Usury – the majority will choose the latter.
Indeed, there are signs of change on the economic horizon. Even though a financial doomsday may become a reality within the global markets, the “shop local” phenomenon is gaining popularity. It seems that ‘small is better” and the catalyst that is fostering local shopping is the tool of usuryfree time currency as it easily facilitates trades or exchanges.
While usury economics breeds wars, violence, greed, poverty, scarcity, lack, mistrust, envy and animosity, usuryfree economics fosters co-operation, trust, peace, prosperity and abundance for all who choose to participate.
As the consciousness of the masses shifts we will move to a new form of economics where the reality of usuryfree living will once again be experienced as it was during the Middle Ages when there was “Life Without Usury.”
As the current financial system crumbles with "The Biggest Lie Never Exposed" - finally becoming exposed, we can expect to witness an ongoing breakdown of the political machinery because of the ineptness of politicians who are simply the front men for the global banking cartel. Various political leaders have been involved in fraud thereby initiating the distrust of their employers (the voters). Their downfall is coinciding with the collapse of the economy that they were charged to manage.
It is my dream that daily life – very soon in this 21st Century will be excitingly different for debtors when they embrace the change to a usuryfree lifestyle. Indeed, signs are emerging that the probability and possibility of epochal changes in our economic system are just around the corner – hopefully in 2013.
As we progress through 2012, time traders in various local communities are daring to depart from the broken, economic model of usury-based, debt money and are replacing it with usuryfree time currencies in their respective local communities. Bravo to these communities that are leading the way!
Yes, during the Year of UsuryFree Living we will be shifting consciousness as we move from usury hell to usuryfree heaven here on earth!
