The Awakening of the UsuryFree Creatives
By Tommy UsuryFree
During the past twenty-five years, the thoughts and actions of the pioneering usuryfree creatives have spread from rural British Columbia to countries all over the world, making a profound impact not only in the movement of usuryfree living, but also in the overall achievement of consciousness-raising of the whole planet.
While cultural creatives are said to be the leading edge creators of a new global culture, the usuryfree creatives are defined as a significant sub-group within the 50+ million cultural creatives who are described in the book The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People Are Changing the World‚ authored by Paul H. Ray, Ph.D. and Sherry Ruth Anderson, Ph.D.
Usuryfree creatives are re-educating themselves about our orthodox system of usury-based economics. Through a self-imposed process of re-education, usuryfree creatives are transforming the consciousness of we-the-people. Indeed, usuryfree creatives from all across Canada (and the world) are un-learning the lies, deceit and deception that have been foisted upon them and their ancestors for centuries as they read books, attend lectures and follow self-imposed courses of study using the world wide web of resources available on the internet.
The usuryfree creatives are re-learning the basics of wealth creation from a unique perspective. Proposals for usuryfree community currency projects are surfacing from many different individuals and groups. Though only some of these blossoming projects are focused on usuryfree time currency, given the ease of modern technology, their respective infrastructures can be easily adapted to use the optimal unit of a time-based currency which can be traded globally without the headaches of exchange rates.
These usuryfree creatives admit to formerly being financially enslaved as debtors, otherwise defined as victims entrapped in a culture of usury. As debtors they were subservient to their greedy creditors (bankers) whose economic domination is evidenced by their theft of wealth from the middle class by the exacting of compound usury.
As debtors and for lack of knowledge about how the design flaw of usury really functions, they were submerged in a painful economic reality in which the experience of usuryfree living was forever illusive. Only recently, have the debtors been offered resources to facilitate their re-education process.
Thanks to the pioneering usuryfree creatives, debtors are now learning that the current, usury-based system of orthodox economics is forever causing the debtors to experience economic pain because the design flaw of usury malfunctions to cause wars, violence, poverty, scarcity and lack.
Usuryfree creatives commonly confront the many problems caused by the design flaw of usury and turn their attention to the usuryfree community currency movement as one of the major planks in any platform that seeks to abolish the culture of usury.
Over the past twenty-five years, the usuryfree creatives have engaged in a process of study and active participation that has produced various workable exchange and/or trading models that are being implemented in local communities all over the world.
From situations of active participation in the struggle to liberate debtors chained by the albatross of usury, these usuryfree creatives are liberating men and women as they evolve towards a usuryfree lifestyle. These usuryfree creatives are developing a new economic perspective which is authentically different and which seeks to facilitate the transition to a concrete reality of usuryfree living in this 21st Century.
These innovative thoughts on the philosophy of usuryfree living first emerged in the early 1980's after Michael Linton created the usuryfree LETS (Local Employment Trading System) software. The LETSystem model has been widely used in local communities all over the world since 1982. Pioneering usuryfree creatives have written and published many articles, booklets, and books during the latter years of the 20th Century. As we progress into this 21st Century, active usuryfree creatives are producing CDs and DVDs as well as hosting live seminars and workshops.
The latest DVD commonly promoted within the usuryfree community currency movement is Money As Debt by Paul Grignon. Since its release in the summer of 2006, it has been lauded as an excellent introductory lesson about the creation of money as debt and the growth of any debt as accelerated by the design flaw of usury.
Indeed, usuryfree creatives are becoming aware of the abstractness and sterility of the conventional and erroneous teachings by orthodox economists. And they are excited about evolving processes midst our ongoing struggle to experience the reality of usuryfree living in this incarnation.
Usuryfree creatives are encouraged when men of the stature of Peter Keonig, an international lecturer from Switzerland hosts seminars about liberating your life, liberating your money, because it demonstrates the awakening of the group consciousness, while negating formerly accepted limits and opening doors to the reality of usuryfree living.
Peter operates on some basic assumptions about money, one of which is that in the future we may expect a time where we have the opportunity to buy things and trade with each other in a multiplicity of different currencies. Peter concurs with the usuryfree creatives who explain that the most empowering element of these modern community currencies are that indeed, they are without interest or otherwise usuryfree.

Usuryfree creatives believe that the development of an online database that will serve to facilitate trades/exchanges locally, nationally and internationally will inevitably lead to the ultimate financial freedom for everyone on this planet.
In fact, the pioneering usuryfree creatives anticipate that such an online database will accelerate the mission of usuryfree living and mark the beginning of a new era of peace, prosperity, and abundance for all.
Indeed, the thoughts and experiences of the pioneering usuryfree creatives are making significant contributions towards creating the reality of usuryfree living for everyone in this 21st Century.
