Thank you. I will send a detailed response asap before 10th November. Of course, the discussion can go on.
Ps. My new book Social Harmony Or the Principles of a Happy Society [in Polish-- Harmonia spoleczna] has come out today! It has been presented at the International Book Fair in Cracow. This book is a continuation of the Tractatus Politico-Philosophicus and is published in the important book series: +/- Infinity, as you can see on the cover. We can translate it to other languages if you are interested. I maintain translation rights.
The book presents social harmony, harmonious international relations, happy societies and good governance. It ends with a vision of human evolution -- of the new age evolutionity, which replaces the current postmodernity -- and a vision of the new politics -- a new cooperative and evolutionary one, which replaces our today's power-driven Hobbesian politics.

Я счастлив поздравить вас с новой великой книгой «Социальная гармония»!!! Это заметное явление в развитии научного и философского сознания социальной гармонии в 21 веке, которое, вы абсолютно правы в этом, способно заменить отживший постмодернизм с марксизмом и «нашу сегодняшнюю силой управляемую Гоббсовскую политику» войны всех против всех.
Глобальный Союз Гармонии (ГСГ), который развивает философию и социологию социальной гармонии более 12 лет и опубликовал 8 книг о ней и создал около 60 сетевых проектов о ней, надеется, что его уникальный мировой потенциал гармоничного сознания 21 века, объединяющий вклад сотен современных мыслителей из более 60 стран, не прошел мимо вашего внимания незамеченным и нашел отражение в вашей книге. Тем более, что вы сотрудничаете с ГСГ уже около двух лет и мы открыли вашу персональную страницу на нашем сайте (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=724), где теперь опубликована инфо о вашей замечательной «Социальной гармонии».
Конечно, мы будем рады содействовать переводу вашей книги на другие языки, прежде всего на английский и русский, если вы пришлете полные данные о книге, ее аннотацию и содержание на английском языке. Может быть вы знаете русский язык и могли бы прислать эту инфо на русском?
Что касается вашего «детального отклика», то мы ждем его как можно скорее, но, в любом случае, он будет учтен, обсужден и опубликован на нашем сайте.
Лучшие пожелания мира из гармонии,
Почетный Президент ГСГ,
I am happy to congratulate you on the new great book "Social Harmony"!!! This is a notable phenomenon in the development of the scientific and philosophical consciousness of social harmony in the 21st century, which, you are absolutely right in this, is able to replace obsolete postmodernismwith Marxism and "our today's power-driven Hobbesian politics" of the war of all against all.
The Global Harmony Association (GHA), which develops the philosophy and sociology of social harmony for more than 12 years and published 8 books about it and created about 60 network projects about it, hopes that its unique world potential of a harmonious consciousness of the 21st century, uniting the contribution of hundreds of modern thinkers from more than 60 countries, has not passed by your attention unnoticed and is reflected in your book. Especially since you have been cooperating with the GHA for about two years and we have opened your personal page on our website (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=724),where the information about your remarkable "Social Harmony" is now published.
Of course, we will be happy to help translate your book into other languages, primarily English and Russian, if you send complete information about the book, its annotation and the content in English. Maybe you know Russian and could send this info in Russian?
As for your "detailed response", we are waiting for it as soon as possible, but in any case, it will be taken into account, discussed and published on our website.
Best wishes for peace from harmony,
Dr. Leo Semashko,

VOTE FOR TRUMP, VOTE FOR PEACE!
DONALD TRUMP STANDS FOR TRIUMPH OF AMERICA’S GREATNESS AND PEACE.
By Prof. W. Julian Korab-Karpowicz
The Polish voters in the US have a special reason to vote for Donald. Trump’s grandmother Elizabeth came from Poland and as a young woman in 1919-1920 twice defended the Polish city of Lwow (today’s Lviv in Ukraine), first against the Ukrainian nationalists and then against the Bolsheviks. In early twenties she immigrated to the US where together with her American husband, she developed a network of restaurants. This was the beginning of the Trump family fortune.
Donald Trump has a rich family background. He has inherited the tradition of being a patriot and an entrepreneur.He wants a strong America that serves World Peace, and not spreading continuous wars. He has condemned the "military adventures" USA in other countries that "last forever and cannot be won by those who lead them now." Also, he wants to improve America’s corrupted political system. His program includes reforms of the economy, governance, and the fight against corruption. He wants to limit the term of office of congressmen and introduce a life ban on lobbying the interests of foreign companies to senior officials. In addition, he wants to stop the flow of illegal emigrants to the US and the reduce the inflow of foreigners into the US from countries considered to be breeding grounds of terrorism. To stimulate the economy, Trump plans the reduction of corporate taxes from 35 to 15%, the lifting of restrictions on the production of energy, sanctions for companies transferring their factories abroad, as well as the simplification of the tax system.
Let us give to Donald Trump our full support! This is a great chance for more peaceful and greater America. Vote for Trump, Vote for Peace!

This is the text that I put today on my Facebook page:
Trump America greatness is peacefulness. Hillary America greatness is genocide, fascism, terrorism and crimes against humanity in the war without borders. This is her global totalitarian democracy.
Dear Prof. W. Julian Korab-Karpowicz:
I found your call to vote for Trump, for the triumph of America's greatness as a peacebuilding power, which it still has not, a very important and relevant for the entire world. So I was happy to post it on your personal page GHA website "Peace from Harmony" here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=724 and Donald Trump's page here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=685. Relationship to global peace is a key criterion for evaluating any political leader of any country, especially such as the United States. Trump's slogan: "Let's make America great" in peace rejects Hillary’s militarist slogan: "America has been and remains the great" imperial and militaristic power on the planet. This is her global ‘totalitarian democracy’ (William Engdahl: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=659), since which she began and continues into the future.
Thereareplentyofevidences forTrump’swin, forexample, "FiveReasonsWhyTrumpwins" by MichaelMoore (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=685) and many others. At the same time, the mainstream media, which are under the heel of the ruling elite, headed by its patron, "Nobel Warlord Obama" (Michel Chossudovsky: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=682), demonizing Trump with endless fabrication of falsehoods, attributing to him all the mortal sins, since fascism, racial hatred, gender humiliation and etc. Of course, some careless attacks he gives some reason for such accusations, but he was always apologizing for them and disowns from them. But the motif of "Trump’s fascism" sounds even at some peacemakers, for example, John Avery from Denmark Nobel Prize winner, who dedicated to him a few articles, following the advice of Noam Chomsky's "Hold your nose and vote for Hillary” as if Hillary would be the greatest peacemaker. But this is a complete jumble in the minds of peacemakers who have lost peacebuilding guidance in their degenerate and impotent methodology.
Avery and Chomsky are my friends in peacemaking, but the truth is dearer to me as the saying goes. They are brilliant in the criticism of militarism, but powerless in its positive alternative. Avery calls the most dangerous militaristic characteristics Hilary: "her known involvement in US wars, and her support for the present provocation of Russia, which might easily escalate into a catastrophic thermonuclear war.... close ties with Wall Street and the Israel Lobby, and her failure to propose cuts in the obscenely bloated Pentagon budget" (https://www.transcend.org/tms/2016/10/what-u-s-progressives-should-do-on-nov-8/). They make its brilliant portrait of the "true hawk and militarist misery of the world" (Jan Oberg:http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=703). But this does not prevent Avery say that "Trump would be worse." What exactly?
What could be worse than nuclear war??? In my opinion is NOTHING!!! But at Avery worse than it is climate change: “his most dangerous feature is his denial of climate change, and his proposal to scrap the Paris agreement. Climate change is an even more severe threat to the long-term future of human civilization and the biosphere than nuclear war.”(Ibid). I do not understand here the great scientist-chemist Avery. If you know that within one hour of a nuclear war, each side will destroy all life on Earth many times and plunges it into a "nuclear winter", then about WHAT future and WHAT climate change we can talk, when they will be destroyed at 100%??? This is an obvious logical inconsistency in the reasoning of my fellow scientists, which I cannot recognize in any way. It is contrary to reason, logic and scientific facts/experiments.
The worst nuclear war Hilary are "the serious flaws in Donald Trump’s character", created for the most partbythe mainstream media purchased democratic Washington elite. What the flaws: "a vulgar misogynist, and a racist bigot, he is a neofascist who appeals to the lowest and most violent instincts of voters. He is also a poorly informed egomaniac who is unable to recognize his own limitations" (Ibid.). Avery uncritically repeats the demonized image of Trump, created by the Washington propaganda. As this paid mythology is more terrible than nuclear war??? HOW propaganda doll for peacemaker Avery could become more dangerous than a real nuclear war???
Why Avery ignores numerous peacemaking intentions of Trump: 'shake rust off America's foreign policy', ‘have a coherent foreign policy’, to withdraw the NATO troops from the western border of Russia, to establish a dialogue with Russia and cooperation in the fight against terrorism and so on. These are the key peacemaking proposals of Trump, which are violated Hilary. Why Avery did not see them? Or he does not want to see them? Ignorance of Trump is better than Hillary professionalism that led to genocide in Iraq and Libya and is leading to a global nuclear war and global genocide. Therefore, the progressive minded people of America and not zombie by propaganda see it and will vote for Trump. Hillary Clinton, by definition of Diana Johnstone is "Queen of Chaos" (Diana Johnstone: Queen of Chaos The misadventures of Hillary Clinton CounterPunch 2015: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=685), with her global ‘totalitarian democracy’ (William Engdahl: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=659), genocide (Mairead Maguire:http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=678), fascism (Gary Brumbak:http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=675), terrorism (Alastair Crooke: How the US Armed-up Syrian Jihadists:http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=716), and war crimes against humanity (Joachim Hagopian. American Empire War and Genocidal Crimes Against Humanity: http://www.globalresearch.ca/historical-tradition-of-american-empire-war-and-genocidal-crimes-against-humanity/5393997), is immeasurably worse for global peace.
Therefore, the progressive-minded American people should vote against Hillary and for Trump. It is our objective conclusion, the opposite to conclusion of Avery. Here truth is dearer friendship. This conclusion is expressed by tens of thinkers, including Julian Korab-Karpowicz and it will be supported by the voters of America. Thank you very much for your courageous appeal, contrary to the mainstream, to vote for Trump, for peace, which is supported by the GHA members and the Global Peace Science coauthors!!!
