Ladies and gentlemen, this entire session will be on two principle topics. The first is the single most destructive idea in the history of human thought, and the second is a simplex means for the obsolescence of war. Now if we can handle both of those in a single session, I’ll assume you’ve got your time’s worth. Is that fair enough? Have you got your time’s worth if we can bring an end to war and explain how to do it? Because it took the lectures leading up to this to do that.

I’ll begin with a discussion of the single most destructive idea in the history of human thought. You may be surprised to learn that the most destructive idea ever conceived comes from the mind of a man for whom I have both considerable respect and admiration. Since the writings of the classical literature of Greece and Rome, this man remains one of the most influential authors in history. This man has influenced such intellectual super-giants as Francis Bacon.

For more than half a century Jay Stuart Snelson studied, thought, lectured, and wrote about freedom; personal, individual freedom. Snelson envisioned a viable solution to build a sustainable society based on win-win interaction: In order for one party to win, the other must win. This is diametrically opposed to the way it has always been done.
