Stewart is editor at and

Stewart grew up on his family's farm located in NE Ohio's Summit County. In the middle of his last high-school year he asked his parents to give their permission for him to enroll, as a 17 year-old minor, in the US Naval Air Reserves "weekend warrior" O-2 training program at the Akron, Ohio Naval Air Station.

He graduated near the top of Hudson Township's 1951 class of forty-seven students. After spending part of that summer on active training duty, he commuted from home to Kent State University and to NAS Akron. The following summer his Navy Squadron flew an east coast logistical air wing based at Norfolk, VA Naval Air Station. He has fond memories of flying at 17 - 20 years of age in these Navy propeller-driven airplanes: PBY, SNJ, SNB, TBM, and R4D.

The Navy enabled him to transfer to Ohio State University and occupied his time again throughout the following summer. By December of 1955, at which time he earned his Bachelor of Science degree, the war in Korea had ended. More importantly for him, education and developing personal convictions precluded him from pursuing a military career.

He went to work within a few days of graduation, with a "Q" Security Clearance from the Atomic Energy Commission, in a laboratory at Battelle Memorial Institute, within walking distance of the college. An avid reader, by 1960 he no longer considered an academic or military career, nor a lifetime spent working in the confines of a laboratory. He took a job in Ohio with Lever Brothers Company, a large consumer products marketing firm that offered a two-year in-field sales-training program. After the two years he was promoted and transferred to New York City where he eventually participated in the introduction of new products.

He resigned from Lever after six years to triple his income, switching from marketing consumer products to industrial sales. By 1968 he had become one of the nation's top producing truck-body salesmen, selling to major truck-rental companies. After learning the techniques of successful distributor marketing, he moved on to become regional sales manager of a company for a couple of years and then the general sales manager of a division of a publicly traded company. He drove the business into a profitable position within his first full quarter's accounting period.

In 1976 he decided to go into business for himself and to return to his mid-western roots. In the course of a year he built an early Century-21 real estate franchise into the SE Ohio region's leading office in all areas: recruiting, listings, sales, and profit. Bored with that business, he began to study the way that personal financial products were marketed, especially "savings-type" or "money-back" life-insurance. These were financial contracts that he could never fully comprehend.

After sending away for The Consumers Union Guide to Life Insurance and reading it carefully, it became obvious to him that accurate information was needed from other than the industry's trained salesmen and their clever General Agents.

He then studied several books on the subject, including Norman F. Dacey's What's Wrong with Your Life Insurance, G. Scott Reynolds' The Mortality Merchants, the classic chapter #13 on life-insurance in Venita Van Caspel's Money Dynamics, and Randal A. Hendricks definitive study, "A Legal Analysis of the Sale of Life Insurance", [The Houston Law Review 810 (1969)].

He decided to recruit and train a marketing organization that would accurately inform consumers, enabling them to make financial decisions in the interest of their families rather than in those of already financially bloated life-insurance companies.

He met and joined forces with a couple of older highly successful and experienced sales executives, the men who introduced the marketing of mutual funds to the American public. Together, over the next several years, he worked with the progressive insurance companies for which they designed products his own company marketed.

In 1980 he wrote and self-published Financial Recovery. Advertised in full-page ads in "Life Insurance Selling" magazine, where it received a favorable review, thousands of copies were bought by individual agents and agencies across America where it helped to create substantial industry changes.

From 1980 to 1985 he built, owned, and managed a company that became one of the top volume diversified brokerage agencies in America, marketing selected financial products nationally, including tax-deferred single-premium annuities before the tax-law was changed from FIFO to LIFO effective Aug. 14, 1982, and selling attractive unregistered tax-sheltered investments before the IRS eliminated them with TEFRA. Before the personal computer age, he struggled to learn how to program the TI-59 in order to provide responsible agents throughout the country a means of calculating and presenting replicable and accountable financial product analyses for their clients at the point of sale.

He made the stupid mistake by entering politics. A couple of friends and Stewart picked a slate of state-wide candidates after helping the new Libertarian Party gain Ohio ballot access. He ran for the Ohio Senate, campaigning on rejection of the state income tax, repeal of the federal income tax, and audit of the Federal Reserve System. He put a sign on the back of his motorcycle's seat that read, "Stop the Federal Income Tax". It got a lot of approving honks. In retrospect, he realizes how politically naive he was at the time. He did relatively well at the polls but unexpectedly generated personally destructive and formidable enemies.

His brilliant younger brother Bob, a PhD geologist living in Florida, had for years been encouraging him to move south. In January 1986, during a particularly cold Ohio winter, he relocated to Sarasota, Florida, a community which he loves today as much as he did the first day he found it. He hopes to live peacefully there to age 100 among interesting neighbors. He is best contacted as Stewart in

Myths, Wars, Truth and Civilization

Warfare in the past enhanced coffers of kings and national rulers. In propagandizing, persuading, and coercing men to murder one another it reduced barbaric populations while profiting society’s elites. With the introduction of modern weaponry, as initiated by World War II’s aerial civilian massacres in Germany and Japan, warfare has escalated to the norm of slaughtering women and children, persons considered in an earlier age to be non-combatants.

Religious dogma, fables, national patriotism, pseudo science and unquestioned conventionality comprise effective levers for sufficient social control without which a police state would be necessary. In today’s world, such methods require contemporary lies broadcast by the corporate state’s well orchestrated public media and their backers, what Mr. Simon Shack calls “the nutwork”. Until peoples of the world, particularly in the U.S., get a grip on the fantasy world in which they live they will continue to be manipulated by a small number of very wealthy bankers and financially compromised corporate executives for whom warfare provides maximum profits. From the looks of things that day is unlikely to come soon, if ever.

A myth or narrative has life independent of plausible content insofar as it provides meaning popularly considered important or necessary as pointed out by Joseph Campbell. For example, as a result of innate death-fear, the emotional response generally appealed to by religions, spurious narratives of mass death are obviously readily embraced by the masses with scarce demand for documentation. Digitally animated and other televised acted fantasies such as 9/11’s deaths, Sandy Hook’s “killings”, and Boston Marathon’s “murders” were instilled quite easily by modern television.

Intellectual curiosity alone is sufficient justification for researching to understand today’s widely propagandized fantasies. However, it is necessary to appreciate the difference between exposing a truth and convincing others. Recall the adage quoted by Mary Shelley which was apparently so popular by the 18th century as to require no reference: “Convince a man against his will, he’s of the same opinion still.” Although that initially seems nonsensical, it resonates in anyone familiar with mass psychology. How many perceptive readers have tried to require friends and relatives to look more closely at today’s televised nonsense?

A case can be made for the necessity of promulgating myths and narratives, or propaganda, for the purpose of circumventing mankind’s bestial ancestry in order to propel humanity into what is loosely referred to as modernity. A key question centers around how masses, removed from the land, would be able to interact financially and to survive economically should yesterday’s historical myths and today’s televised fantasies be widely exposed. Individuals of superior intellect and skeptical ability who grasp these concepts and who understand cognitive dissonance of their peers are in a small minority. Generally among society’s more financially secure, with exception of idealistic or disgruntled intellectuals, they can be counted upon to go along with today’s elites and to eschew speaking truth to power.

Perhaps a comforting fact is that no tidal wave of financial or economic disruption is likely to occur in the foreseeable future as long as banking elites are able to continue to devise finance and currency strategies conducive to maintaining social order. To that extent we must all rely on them. To demand disruption of their schemes either as a result of recognizing their control and vested interests or based upon exposing self-serving lies and perversely entertaining heart-wrenching televised fantasies would undoubtedly create huge social dislocations. It would be as destructive to the masses as their learning and speaking the true name of G_D. Such ideas are, of course, terribly unpopular today with the few remaining classical liberals and debate is encouraged.

    Only about one-third of the USA population of about 300 million should be considered politicly viable ; so that would be only about 15% of about 100 million USA souls need to be awakened for significant political action .

    End-the-Fed === no more free money system for the satanic SSG rulers .

    Abe Lincoln had his own ” greenback ” currency system and was assassinated by JW Booth whom had connections to masonic//illuminati banksters . JFK started his own currency system with executive order 11110 and was assassinated by your-best-guess . President Andrew ( Jackson whom prevented Rothschild empire agents in the US federal government and in Wall Street from getting control of the national public money-currency system ) survived an assassination attempt that was paid for by some unspecified big money people . The single biggest gripe that the USA founders had for starting the 1776 revolution was the confiscation of the colonial sovereign right to issue their very successful ” colonial scrip ” money .

    It should be obvious , to anyone that knows how to put 3 dots on a piece of paper and connect them by lines without running out of lead , that ” we ” are dealing with satanists whom believe that they are Divinely entitled to monopolize the single most important economic resource
    — global money systems technologies .

    “” To demand disruption of their schemes …. would undoubtedly create huge social dislocations.””

    Anyone whom would make an assertion such as that quoted above is either unaware of the true nature of the ashkenazi jewish central bankster schemes ( ie. world dominion by ANY MEANS ) or is unaware of the fact that central bankster schemes have already created ” huge social dislocations “; or is a shill for the banksters .

    No — [ we ] do not need lucuferian satanists to manage our money system .

    Yes — there are many among us nonjews who are ” smart enough to create a sound currency system “.

    I was really gripped by the last two paragraphs in this article and have often arrived at the same conclusions . The biography often shows how an individual shapes his world so these bios are interesting. Of course, a lot of us may have bios showing we were Marines or soldiers when teenagers and thus giving a clue that some young men were thrown into a world beyond their control.

    In Frederick Pohl’s science fiction novel The Space Merchants, written in the 1950s, the premise was that the future world would be controlled by businessmen who would get the government or powers to be to rid the world with those with IQs above something like 100 or 105 (cannot remember) because there was an IQ range of the masses (say around IQ of 99) who were most susceptible to being influenced by advertising, and good citizens were those who would shop, shop, and shop some more.

    “” We are those who chafe at the bit our drivers place in our mouths until we are able to ride in our own saddles.””

    Our drivers at the highest levels ( ie. top of the power pyramid ) are known to be satanic jews ( ie. talmudic ashkenazis ) . Therefore , they assume the elitist belief in being { divinely chosen ones } whom the OT God said would have nonjews//gentiles as slaves FOREVER ; which means our drivers — our ultimate masters the ziojew banksters — are not about to let very many of the nonjew sheeple get on a horse and ride off the plantation without paying an unforgiving price to do so . The sheeple are being programmaticly financially and otherwise entrapped which is a form of enslavement . It is not known if enough sheeple will ever acquire the necessary IQ level to rectify the enslavement agenda of the ziojew rulers by throwing off the brainwashing — not easy to do .
