Jay Stuart Snelson

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.

Snelson’s seminal work on the subject is a lecture series called simply “The V-50 Lectures.” It was always a work in progress as he honed it virtually every time he gave it. Over 14 years he presented the 16 lecture series hundreds of times to audiences ranging from 20 to more than 300. The total number of graduates is many thousands. Graduates have been quoted many times that their lives were changed and improved by V-50 more than all the other schooling they experienced in life combined.

Snelson’s subsequent lectures, “Human Action Seminars and Principles of Human Action” were successful in attracting both alumni and newcomers to hear the improvements over previous versions.

In his later years, Snelson no longer lectured but devoted his time primarily to writing, believing that it was important to commit his ideas to a longer lasting, more far reaching medium than was possible from the podium.

He completed the body of his full-length book, Taming the Violence of Faith, in mid-2011, which was published posthumously in July, 2012. This was to be part of a much larger work encompassing his Win-Win theory, which was to provide a blueprint for building a sustainable civilization to optimize Peace, Prosperity, and Freedom while attenuating to the vanishing point War, Poverty, and Servitude.

Jay passed away from the cumulative effects of multiple myeloma in December, 2011.
