The purpose of this paper is to show that nowadays individuals feel helpless to live and to determine how to spend their free time without the existence of money.
The predominant meaning of free time in the days depends upon the vaccination of society with dictated forged needs. The main target is the maintenance of high levels of mass consumption (using even lending if income becomes insufficient), in order high levels of mass production can be preserved.
This type of free time, that the society serves, conceals the low level of the civilization. In real terms, free time means will for education‐learning, creation, and sociability.
If there are no money, there will be no lack of purchasing power for consumption in their free time, and hence forged needs are collapsing in such conditions. However, in order to confront such situations, people should be educated in the creative use of their free time.
The blame, that people cannot even imagine their lives without the use of money, goes to the formal and obligatory educational system that creates brainless individuals.
