You've Got Time !!
By Tommy-Usury: Free
The E-Generation (Entrepreneurial-Generation aged 13 to 26) are positioned to lead the way by building a P2P (Person-to-Person) 'usury-free' time payment system as they teach their peers (and parents) the universal truth about 'usury-based' orthodox economics.
About 1% of the awakening youth who are opposing the giant corporations and advocated anti-globalization are open to acting on real solutions. The other 99% of the youth protestors (like the 99% of the adult population) are not yet aware of what to suggest as solutions to the death, sickness, poverty, scarcity and lack that they see being imposed by the agenda of the New World Order elites.
While attending demonstrations in Seattle, Washington, Windsor, Quebec City, Genoa, Ottawa (and other places) in the last years of the 20th Century and the very early years of the 21st Century the majority of these youth were acting as protestor-obstructers who wanted to voice their opposition to problems they were observing BUT who offered no solutions because they simply didn't have any - not yet.
One senior protestor-instructor, John C. 'The Engineer' Turmel who likewise attended all of the above-mentioned protests and many, many more has been advocating solution-oriented activity as the optimal strategy to effect change. In fact, John, the Banking Systems Engineer from Ottawa, Ontario holds the honourable distinction of being the very first 'anti-usury' protestor at an IMF (International Monetary Fund) meeting in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1982.

Supporters of John C. 'The Engineer' Turmel's research on orthodox, 'usury-based,' economics and his proposed solution as related to 'usury-free' time currency commonly identify themselves as 'protester-instructors' who are able to address those 1% of the awakened youth (as they address the 1% of the awakened adults) and explain how they can take a leadership role in solving the problems they have been protesting against.
Though a minority attending the protests, these protestor-instructors often attracted the attention of the true one-percenters among the youth during these marches and at the discussion meetings. One question that always prompted a response was: Why do you settle for being a misguided protestor-obstructer when you could acquire some new knowledge and become a proud protestor-instructor?
Since April 2001 numerous students from various high schools and
universities have contacted The Cyberclass Network
www.cyberclass.net and John C. 'The
www.cyberclass.net/turmel by email and/or by telephone seeking more
information about solution-oriented activities and events. In January 2002,
individuals and small groups of these students made a decision to take action
and lead the way in their respective university environments.
For example, a group of students from Western University in London, Ontario with the co-operation of the Oxfam Committee arranged for John C. 'The Engineer' Turmel to make a presentation about the problem of 'usury' and the solution as offered by 'usury-free' time currency. This presentation was scheduled for Saturday, February 9th, 2002, and approximately 55 students attended. Daryl VanSlack www.cyberclass.net/student.htm and myself, Tommy-Usury: Free www.cyberclass.net/intro.htm accompanied John on his journey to London, Ontario. All three of us had occasion to interact and network 'universal truth' to the one-percenters at the University of Western Ontario.
Likewise, a brother and sister team of one-percenters who attend Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario arranged a presentation about 'usury-free' time currencies with the co-operation of SNID at the MacCory Building on Monday, February 11th, 2002. Both John C. 'The Engineer' Turmel and myself shared information with the Queen's youth and the one Engineering Professor who attended the event.
I had previously booked a display table in the lobby of the UCC Building at Concordia, University in Montreal, Quebec for Tuesday, February 12th, 2002. I have been regularly reserving display tables at Concordia University since the fall of 2000 in an attempt to 're-educate' the one-percenters - in the university environment - who are ready and willing to learn 'what they don't know they don't know.' John C. 'The Engineer' Turmel decided to spend the day with me at the display table at the Concordia campus. Even though there was no organized room for a group of students to gather during the day, we did speak with 30+ students from various faculties. Many of these students left their names and email addresses and requested to be informed of any future presentations organized at Concordia.
On Wednesday, February 13th, my son Jonathan Kennedy (who attends Concordia as a full-time student) was able to aid me in booking room for a presentation at Concordia on Saturday, March 23rd, 2002 from 13:00 hours until 16:00 hours. The students from Western University and Queen's have likewise invited us back for follow-up information sessions. Currently, we are taking booking for universities and/or other locations. Contact the author to arrange a presentation in your university.
Many of these university students talked about a shortage of
money and though many affirmed that indeed they had credit cards, these too were
maxed to the limit. Other students lamented that they didn't even have a credit
card. All students seemed ready and willing to learn about the 'usury-free' time
currency. Here are some of the details that we presented.
John and I explained to the students that the future is here NOW. It's a P2P (Person-to-Person) world where your 'usury-free' time currency can be immediately recorded and transferred by email. The city of Yamato, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, has already started the experimental use of a local electronic currency, using plastic cards with integrated circuit (IC) chips and though this smart card technology is ideal for 'usury-free' time currency exchanges we must start immediately with a more rudimentary record keeping method. More details at the Japan Cyberclassroom: www.cyberclass.net/yamato.htm
The email address of the person who sends the 'usury-free' time currency authorizes the promissory 'hour' note and the email address of the person who receives the 'usury-free' time currency denotes proof of payment. In reality, the email facilitates the electronic trade of 'usury-free' time currency and acts as a receipt of the real transfer of promissory 'hour' note within this new but very simple alternative, economic infrastructure. Readers are invited to review details of a sample trade at The UsuryFree Cyberclasroom: www.cyberclass.net/sampletrade.htm More information about setting up a UNILETS 'usury-free' time currency account at The UNILETS Cyberclassroom: www.cyberclass.net/22clicks.htm
All who support the concept of trading 'usury-free' time currency are encouraged to post their cyberspace shingle and list their 'OFFERS' and 'WANTS' with their contact details. Since local communities have slightly different values on their respective 'usury-free' time currencies it is prudent to declare the value of your one hour of clock time relative to the local 'usury-bearing' currency.
For example, at The Cyberclass Network www.cyberclass.net cyberspace community one basic hour of clock time labour is equated to a value of $13.00 (Canadian Funds). This makes two hours of clock time labour is equivalent to $26.00 (Canadian Funds), a half hour is equivalent to $6.50 (Canadian Funds) and a quarter hour is equivalent to $3.25 (Canadian funds). Therefore, the value of any product and/or service offered by The Cyberclass Network can be easily calculated in 'usury-free' time currency. Understand that like any other enterprise, The Cyberclass Network must cover our wholesale costs in cash as our wholesalers do not yet accept 'usury-free' time currency as payment for products or services. Here's an example of how you can purchase coral calcium for part 'usury-bearing' cash and part 'usury-free' time currency. Details at the Health Cyberclasroom: www.cyberclas.net/coralcalcium2.htm
Though we are presently relying on email to transfer any 'usury-free' time currency payments to facilitate immediate exchanges in our respective local environments, some innovative entrepreneurs are exploring the possibility of printing paper 'usury-free' time currency notes in denominations of one-quarter hour, one-half hour, one hour and two hours. I welcome paper 'usury-free' time currency notes as they will definitely expedite time trading. Hopefully, a 'usury-free' creative who has acquired some abundance will consider underwriting the cost of printing time currency notes - with his/her company logo on the back!

Those who have taken the time to comprehend the gravity of the design flaw of 'usury' surely understand the urgency of being able to buy and/or sell with a 'usury-free' time currency as the optimal alternative which will eventually usher in a new age of 'peace and plenty' by 2020.
