Website “Peace from Harmony” for Harmonious Civilization: Updating Finish. February 25, 2010
Dear harmony friends,
I am happy to inform you, that we with our web designer Ivan Ivanov finished updating of the Main page of our site “Peace from Harmony” (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/) which is of the Global Harmony Association (GHA) information base. I express sincere gratitude to Ivan for his colossal and qualitative work on the site updating.
Our site became a unique information portal for conscious development of the harmonious civilization (which were born in 2009), that makes GHA Mission. Therefore it became a powerful information resource for the GHA independent financing (see below).
We created the following 12 new pages of the site Main menu:
About Us / History / Harmony Globalization / Harmony Science / Harmony Sphere Classes / Harmonious Democracy and State / Harmony: Beyond Corruption / Harmonious Civilization / Harmonious Education / Nuclear Zero: Harmony / Harmony Currency / Harmony Persons.
Now the Main menu emphasizes the major innovative aspects of our scientific-theoretical vision of a harmonious civilization and also its key practical projects of GHA.
Besides, the page “Mission” is essentially updated; and section “Harmony Films” replenished with the brilliant pictures of harmony of nature, countries (especially China, which the first begun the conscious building a harmonious society with 2006 and to pave the own way from socialism to a harmonious civilization) and people from all world which you sent. The site structure on a vertical became bilingual, and across – multilingual, connected on the centre from above the general book of harmony which we write, and the GHA united emblem from below. We found the site epigraph in genius on philosophy poetic lines:
Harmony nectar is in everyone,
Who is only born or has lived long,
And to understand to us is very important,
In harmony God created the World!
We invite you attentively to look the new pages and to state your remarks.
Certainly, works with site modernization will proceed. Translation of the site new pages, first of all Mission, on 14 languages is a priority. Within 1-2 weeks I will send to our translators the small texts of Mission and some other pages for this purpose.
What became our site for 5 years and what its importance for GHA development in the future?
Our site is the first in the Internet and the only thing in the world on the following two unique signs:
- On a harmony science. Within 5 years we lifted Tetrasociology, as the harmony theory, on our site on level of a science of social/global harmony and developed on its basis essentially new Tetranet Harmonious thinking. We proved their efficiency in 19 the GHA collective projects responding to the global challenges of humanity. Similar analogues in the world do not exist, though many scientists and groups move in the same direction of harmony. The human history did not know still a social science of harmony and harmonious four-dimensional thinking, except GHA and its site. It makes our main pride, honour and contribution to radical change of human history, to its transformation from spontaneous and violent (animal) in conscious (scientific) and consequently nonviolent (truly human, harmonious) history. This contribution synthesizes in itself practically all basic harmonious ideas of the past and the present from all areas of knowledge and world cultures. Our site is a beehive which collects nectar of harmony from all world and it is open to any new ideas of harmony always. We do not compete with them but we synthesize them in a science of social harmony and we attach to them scientific significance. These can explain constantly raising public attention to our site: if for the first 4 years the number of its visiting made about 1 million, that only for one last year it made about 700 thousand.
- On collectivity of a harmony science. We proved our five years' experience, that the social science can be only harmonious and only in the harmonious society/civilization, beginning with a small harmonious international community what is GHA uniting more 350 members from 48 countries of the world. The site unites hundreds the brilliant and usual minds devoted to global harmony and a harmonious civilization. 87 from them, i.e. almost every fourth, have the personal page on our site and is presented in the Main menu new section: “Harmony Persons”. Any person separately, without others, alone, never could create neither a global science of social harmony, nor its site and GHA. They are only the COMMON achievement and only the COLLECTIVE merit. onLY! The harmonious global contribution can be only joint, i.e. harmonious on a way and the actor. Certainly, the individual contribution of everyone to the common achievement was a different but only their synthesis and unity provided the GHA colossal result and its site. It is as in an old Russian tale about the turnip which could pull out onLY the general, but different, efforts of the grandfather, the grandma, the grand daughter, the doggy, the cat and the smallest mouse. This tale expresses Russian culture of harmony and is similar to similar tales in many other cultures. GHA also, only together, could pull out “the turnip” of scientific comprehension of a harmonious civilization and present it on the site, in 4 books and 19 projects. Therefore the GHA each member can be proud of our general result in which there is also its share without which would be no this result. We can tell that our site embodies Durkheim’s “collective consciousness” and solidarity to the full.
Our site became a powerful information resource for GHA financing on the following channels (other channels are possible, except listed):
- Club-2009: the large political figures united in it, cannot do without financing and our site, and GHA.
- Grants of the different foundations and organisations for financing, first of all, youth Academy of Harmony on the information basis of the site in a minimum for 2-4 weeks.
- Reprinting “Harmonious Civilization” book, published on the site, in the mass edition with updating of this book.
- Use of our site for preparation of the mass edition of the textbook on Tetrasociology for schools and universities of the world.
- Use of our site as manual for schools, universities and house harmonious training, including individual teaching.
I am personally ready now to the following practical actions in this direction:
1. To read at any university of the world on the basis of our site as manual the following lecture courses in length of 40-120 class periods during 1 – 5 months:
- Tetranet Harmonious Thinking of the 21st century
- Harmonious civilization of the 21st century
- Harmony Globalisation
- Harmony Philosophy
- Science of Social Harmony
- Science of Individual Harmony
- Harmonious (Sphere) Management
- Culture of Harmonious Peace and etc.
The GHA many members could prepare similar lecture courses on an information basis of our site also.
2. To prepare a custom-made course of lectures on harmony for any university practically on any theme of any social science within 1-3 months with work advancing.
3. To act in a role of the house teacher for preparation of the ambitious young (age 17-23) person from an ambitious family as future (in 10-20 years) President for harmonization of any country of the world. I will be very grateful to everyone who can acquaint me with a similar family. Many GHA members also could seize this unique service on the basis of our site.
Concluding, it is possible to tell, that our site opens the essentially new theoretical and practical prospects and for GHA as a whole, and its each member, arming everyone a unique information resource.
Best harmony wishes,
Dr. Leo Semashko,

TO: Project Harmony International, Ms Ann Martin and Mr David Koenig, Executive Directors
SUBJECT: Cooperation of two organisations devoted to harmony: Global Harmony Association (GHA) and Project Harmony International (http://www.ph-int.org)
Dear Ms Ann Martin and Mr David Koenig!
I was happy to receive the information on your remarkable organisation, related to our, from Dr. Edward Soroko, Belarus, to who I am very grateful for it.
Your organisation has been created by three citizens from the USA in 1985. It has gone through cold war and won it because harmony is stronger than war and finally wins all wars.
We are glad to include the fact of creation of your organisation as the 67th achievement of global harmony since 1947 in the GHA Book of Achievements/Records of World Harmony: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=382,
Our organisation, as a matter of fact, also is the Harmony International, uniting 350 individual members from 48 countries and many collective members. Therefore we suggest to begin close cooperation between us that you joined to our 19 projects of global harmony, and we – to your projects in six countries: America, Russia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine.
We offer also cooperation with American GHA (AGHA) through its President Dr. Laj Utreja (firstname.lastname@example.org) and with Youth GHA (YGHA) through its President Dr. Dominica McBride (email@example.com). I see, that the majority of your staff makes youth for which global harmony represents the greatest interest: young live in a harmonious society, therefore young to build it first of all.
We invite you to get acquainted with our program book “Harmonious Civilization” (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/? cat=ru_c&key=405,
http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=379), which will allow you to know the GHA in all basic aspects: innovative (19 projects), social, political, cultural, peace-making, philosophical, sociological and personal.
February 15, 2010 it is executed five years of GHA. It, as a matter of fact, develops all this time, deepens and expands your activity in a harmony and consensus direction between the USA and Russia first of all. These two leading countries of the world begun a new, harmonious, civilization of humankind in 2009 by a consent about nuclear zero. In this connection, GHA initiates creation of the international political Club-2009 for a harmonious civilization: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=ru_c&key=437,
http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=409. We invite in this civilizational Club the political and civil leaders who brought the contribution to global harmony of the 21st century. In this connection, we are glad to invite you in this club as the leader of “Project Harmony International”.
Best harmony wishes.

Haiti: Industrial Civilizational Responsibility for the Any Victims
Dear Friends of Harmony!
I received many troubled responses with feelings of deep sympathy in connection with colossal victims: from 70 to 200 thousand persons as a result of Haitian earthquake. I join these voices of sympathy as well as all others.
Unfortunately, nobody raised the question about responsibility for so colossal victims and destructions in the most pauper country. only Randall Robinson, author of An Unbroken Agony: Haiti, it seems the first declared: ”Bush Was Responsible for Destroying Haitian Democracy” and, hence, for so severe consequences of the earthquake. (I am grateful Lane Yang for its message about Randall Robinson’s interview: http://www.democracynow.org/2010/1/15/bush_was_responsible_for_destroying_haitian).
We, GHA, should recognise responsibility not only Bush and America, as leading industrial power, but also all industrial civilization as a whole for Haitian victims. Why? Because a priority of this dying civilization is self-damage and self-destruction now. Because it annually increases expenses on weapons as the destruction tool, leaving hungry and illiterate about 2 billion people in the world, including Haiti as the poorest country. This civilization is today antihuman totally. It works on destruction, instead of on survival of humankind. Therefore I suggest to enter into the GHA scientific concept of harmonious civilization which is presented in its program book “Harmonious Civilization” (2009, 260 p.: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=379) a new concept ‘Civilizational Responsibility’ for an estimation of responsibility of a leaving industrial civilization for all without an exception human victims on the Earth. Haitian earthquake, as well as other spontaneous disasters, were predicted by scientists, but these predictions have not been taken into consideration. Why? Because destructions from these disasters operate in the same direction, as a destructive industrial civilization. Those noble but modest actions of the help for Haiti cannot rescue a life of 70 thousand victims and are scantiest in comparison with scale of destructions to Haiti. This help is more likely similar on hypocritical crocodile tears.
In connection with Haitian victims, GHA should remind once again to the world the predictions of victims in hundred millions people (including our children and grandsons) in the end of 2010 or in 2011-2012 as a result of an unprecedented financial collapse of reserve currency. GHA, as well as some other organisations and scientists, predicted this collapse in the project “Alternative Reserve Currency of Harmony” which is published in GHA mentioned book (p. 119-126). We directed this project to the IMF and to the G20 leaders. The result is known: ignoring. Leaders of an industrial civilization do not want and cannot hear a ringing of bell which calls on this civilization. The ring of financial crisis 2009 is insufficient for them. The ring of Haitian earthquake is insufficient for them. Obviously, the ring of a bell from hundreds millions victims in all countries, first of all in the most developed is necessary for them, that they and each person on the Earth understood what to live in this civilization it is IMPOSSIBLE MORE. That time of an alternative, harmonious civilization with corresponding, alternative harmonious democracy of the population sphere classes excluding weapons and poverty has come. only the similar civilization, which scientific picture is presented briefly in GHA mentioned book, is capable to replace a priority of self-destruction with a priority of the human and social harmony. only this civilization will be capable to prevent or minimize the victims of any foreknow disasters: as natural and social.
Dr. Leo Semashko,
REPORT about expenditure of donations on the GHA new book publication
November 5, 2009
Dear harmony friends,
On November 3 I handed the text of GHA new book: “Harmonious Civilization” in publishing house where final cost of its publication in two languages: Russian and English has been defined.
Two important circumstances have affected change on the publication initial plans:
1. The book length increased twice in comparison with the first: now it makes 260 pages (it was planned in 120-150);
2. The prices for publishing services raised on 20 % in comparison with May. As a result, I have been to refuse from the very expensive colour press of photos of GHA 38 members and to reduce the edition circulation from 2000 copies to 1200.
GENERAL EXPENSES on the publication of the book and its dispatch were made $4750 (USD).
Expenses in the USD:
Publishing house: 3200
English text editing: 750
Design – 100
Making-up – 300
Book publication on the site - 100
Dispatch – 300
These expenses have been covered from the following sources:
1. Donations of GHA 17 members from Russia: $2000
2. Donations of GHA 15 foreign members: $1470
3. Leo Semashko's credit: $1280
1. Three foreign sponsors promised to bring the donations later: they will be spent for credit payment.
2. My credit is provided, basically, my sons: Alexander and Andrey to whom I am very grateful and highly appreciate for their help.
Now I am glad to publish the list of GHA members, who brought donations for the edition of GHA new book. This list is published also in the book.

Hiroshima - Nagasaki August 6 /9, 1945-2009: Reminder of "Universal Nuclear Genocide" and its Alternative
Dear Takis, Dear All!
Today is the tragical day for all mankind. This day shown 64 years ago with one's own eyes "universal nuclear genocide” (Ernesto Kahan and Taki Yuriko) and proved to everything, that the industrial civilization IS CAPABLE FREELY to destroy for few minutes mankind also as IT WAS CAPABLE FREELY to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki (about 200 thousand innocent victims: children, women, old men, men) for one minute in August 1945. Therefore, I was happy to publish today the talented and inspired me poetic protest-reminder of known Greek poet Takis Ioannides “WE NEVER FORGET!” together with the same strong protest-reminder of the world famous poets Ernesto Kahan, Israel and Taki Yuriko, Japan – their immortal book "GENOCIDE" on our site “Peace from Harmony”:
In “universal nuclear genocide” not so much separate countries are guilty: Japan with Perl-Harbor 1941, or the USA with Hiroshima and Nagasaki 1945 etc. (this list is infinite as well as hostile disputes round it), as the world order of an industrial civilization pushing each country to violence and in which almost each country brings its evil contribution. The interdependent global mankind can exist now only in other world order of a harmonious civilization that each country could be the contributor not in a universal genocide but in universal harmony.
We, as members of the Global Harmony Association (GHA) and authors of 19 projects of global harmony which are topped by the "Harmonious Civilization Universal Declaration” (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=375), scientifically realize, that alternative to "universal nuclear genocide”, which 64 years hang as the Sword of Damocles over mankind, can be only a global harmonious civilization. Presidents of Russia and the USA began this civilization since April 1, 2009 by the joint statement on reduction and liquidation of the nuclear weapons. Nuclear disarmament is impossible in an industrial civilization. Nuclear disarmament is possible only in a new civilization which begins with the beginning of nuclear disarmament. The GHA paves a way to this civilization by the projects of global harmony. The more intensively and more widely worldwide we will advance these and similar projects of global harmony, the more likely mankind will be released from horror and fear of universal nuclear genocide, constantly hanging over it. We never should afford and another to forget this horror, a reminder to which talented creations of the GHA many members serve. At the same time, we should understand very clearly: one reminder is insufficiently: the persistent and heavy everyday work on development of a harmonious civilization, on comprehension of its sharp necessity as our saving positive alternative is necessary. We do it with you in our projects of global harmony and in its poetic creations.
One of such creations is the new book of the GHA Honorary Member, “Harmonious Peace Hero”, known Argentina poetess Susana Roberts. I was happy to publish a cover of this book together with Ernesto Kahan foreword on the GHA website: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=275. I hearty congratulate Susana with her new poetic achievement of harmony for harmonious civilization.
I also was happy to publish a poem SAYING “HIROSHIMA” of the known Japanese poetess Sadako Kurihara who Taki Yuriko with comments kindly sent to me today. This poem is ingenious that it expresses the mutual guilt and responsibility for a universal nuclear genocide in an industrial civilization:

The GHA’s ugly ducklings, Pontius Pilate, and warm care about harmony nestlings
Dear Peace from Harmony authors, Global Harmony Association members, and friends!
In this anniversary, please allow me to remind us of our sources and to view the results of our first four years.
The friendship and scientific cooperation of the group of sociologists, psychologists, linguists, and artists in six countries who were interested in Tetrasociology as a theory of social harmony in 2002 has became a source of the web site “Peace from Harmony.” This group developed as a result of discussion of my fundamental sociological work: Tetrasociology: Responses to Challenges (2002, in Russian and English languages), which was presented in the 16th World Sociological Congress in Brisbane, Australia, in July 2002. This group consisted of: myself, Dr. Leo Semashko of Russia, philosopher and sociologist and initiator of the group; also from Russia: Professor of psychology Alexander Juriev, linguist Boris Kondratjev, and writer Vladimir Kavtorin; Doctors of sociology Martha Ross DeWitt and Bernard Phillips from the USA; Doctor of sociology Bernard Scott from England; Doctor Bernd Hornung from Germany; artist Hilarie Roseman from Australia; Professor of sociology Reimon Bachika from Japan; and others for a total in all of 15 persons.
The book Tetrasociology: From Sociological Imagination through Dialogue to Universal Values and Harmony (2003) in three languages (Russian, English and Esperanto) became the first collective fruit of this group (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=149) and a prototype of all subsequent projects listed below. This group became the foundation for the web site “Peace from Harmony” on February 15, 2005, and for the community, from which arose the Global Harmony Association (GHA), which received the legal Statutes on November 30, 2007.
On behalf of this group of pathfinders in a scientific paradigm of social harmony and pioneers in the harmonizing world union, I am happy to congratulate all creators and friends of social harmony on our fourth anniversary of its conscious and purposeful global life!
For four years, the number of site authors and GHA members has grown to more than 300, representing 48 countries of the world. Some original and collective works of the GHA members were published on the site in 17 languages. In addition, GHA unites the collective members with more than one million members from more than 80 countries. The number of site pages has reached 230 and has become the unique global book of world harmony, uniting many cultures of harmony of the East and the West, the North and the South. The number of site visits reached almost one million within these four years, including more than 500 thousand in the last year alone. But our main accomplishment is this: Within these four years, we created so many new ideas and projects that they allowed us to cross the Rubicon from words and theory to the practice of harmonious peace. Our work has allowed us to enter into the area of economic, market embodiment through our key, academic project.
However, the market has its own laws and requirements. The market lives by competition. The market demands advertising and that we provide a clear understanding of our resources and achievements. In order to answer the market’s demand and to realize global acceptance of our projects, which are our product, we gladly and proudly announce that, in the last four years, GHA created 11 global projects of world value:
1.International web site and community “Peace from Harmony,” since February 15, 2005
2.Movement “Making Children a Priority in the World,” since May 2005 and the Law “Children’s Suffrage,” since March 2004
3.Harmonious Era Calendar, since January 2006
4.Magna Carta of Harmony, since December 2006
5.World Harmony/Peace Academy and General Harmonious Education, since May 2007
6.Textbook: Tetrasociology: Science about Social and Individual Harmony, since July 2008
7.Russia–Georgia: Harmonization through education instead of militarization, since August 2008
8.World Harmony/Peace Festival 2010 (similar to Olympic Games) since September 2008
9.Fractals of Social Harmony and Tetrasociological Mathematics of Harmony, since October 2008
10.Global Harmonious Revolution/Transformation of Modernity, since October 2008,
11.Global Harmonious Competition-Partnership, or “A Peace Race” of states and projects in the field of harmonious/peace education, since January 2009
We could accomplish so much and create so many effective world projects so quickly only because of our scientific basis: Tetrasociology, developed of 1976. The GHA projects arise from, are developed through, and, thereby, unite ten global theoretical discoveries that are at the core of Tetrasociology:
- Tetrasociology, as the first science of social and individual harmony
- Sphere classes of population, as conscious actors of social harmony
- Sphere democracy, based on equal division of the political (legislative, executive and judicial) power between four sphere classes of population, as democracy of social harmony; and the sphere state, as the political tool of social harmony adequate to sphere democracy.
- Sphere management, which provides constant harmonization of social processes in all spheres, branches, and institutes and which is a constant conscious state policy of social harmonization.
- Social priority of children, as a necessary condition of social harmony of spheres and sphere classes of society.
- Harmonious peace culture, which recognizes that true peace is a consequence of social harmony, and that social disharmony is the true reason of wars and conflicts; the harmonious peace culture is the alternative to the generally accepted industrial peace culture, which readily accepts the “arms race” and recognizes only a “pseudo peace” as a temporary pause in hostilities between war and conflict.
- Sphere macrosocial statistics, as statistics of social harmony.
- Sphere information-statistical technology, as a complex of technologies of social, cultural, political, economic, and individual harmonization.
- Sphere marketing, as harmonious economy, free from financial and other crises.
- General harmonious education, as a universal way for humankind to experience social harmony and survival.
These discoveries have more than 100 examples of practical (technological, social, cultural, educational, organizational, political) applications in all spheres since 1976. These discoveries are presented in more than 200 scientific works, including 11 books that have been published in one to 16 different languages. Tetrasociology has been taught for more than ten years at the Universities of Petersburg since 1993.
Yet, the discoveries of Tetrasociology and GHA projects on which they are based are still very weak and still very far from perfection. The current “lack” of acceptance allows us to title them as “ugly ducklings” or “sprouts” of harmonious civilization born within GHA. Even though apparently weak, these (21: 10 discoveries and 11 the GHA projects) ugly ducklings already possess powerful advantages. Our duty as responsible world citizens and “parents” of these sprouts is to protect them in the current competitive environment and to make sure they do not die but grow into beautiful, elegant swans of a harmonious society.
However, there is one competitive partnership that we have created in the educational area between the states and similar projects. GHA created and declared this competition in the beginning of 2009: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=356. As stated by Martin Luther King, Jr., “shift the arms race into a peace race.” A peace race, as a harmonious competition-partnership in education, will include our academic project, plus existing Academies of Peace and Harmony, the Muslim leader Aga Khan Peace Academies, and the new Academies of Peace that are being planned in the USA and other countries. A peace race “competition” supersedes the arms race and the “clash of civilizations” as the most dangerous threat for harmony sprouts.
For our “ugly duckling nestlings” to survive, three basic conditions are required:
1.We must keep them safe from indifference, neglect, and the disbelief that those beautiful “swans” of a harmonious civilization can grow within the competitive environment. It is our internal “Pontius Pilate,” the skeptic who washed his hands of the fate of Christ, from which we should release ourselves.
2.We must provide fertile ground and smooth waters in order to create for youth, who embody the emerging swan mentality, a Harmony Academy, which would cost $27 million for three years ($9 million every year).
3.We must accept our responsibility, our partnership, and our care for the “nestlings” of harmony. We cannot allow them to die a frozen death; rather, we must warm them in the heat of sincere support and practical help. This is necessary.
Fortunately, we are already showing this care, which we can consider as “anniversary gifts,” in many various ways: Translations in Spanish from Susana Roberts and in French from Prof. Ammar Banni; GHA letters to the governments of England, Argentina, and India from Dr. Bernard Scott, Prof. Maria Cristina Azkona, and Dr. Tholana Chakravarthy; variants of mathematics of social harmony from Peter Sergienko and Vadim Trifanov; poems from Taki Yuriko; drawings from Nina Goncharova; and many more from many others. We extend our sincerest “thank you” to all of our colleagues who brighten the colours of our anniversary with a firework of gifts for our emerging swans.
Today, the day before our anniversary, per the invitation of Rose Lord, the Global Coalition for Peace Co-chair and devoted GHA member, we begin a new Harmonious Era tradition: We started to participate in the Worldwide Weekly Meditation/Prayer for Peace. I call upon GHA members and friends to join this prayer every Saturday evening, at 6:00 PM (local time). I ask that you meditate or pray this specifically: “I pray that the world harmony of spheres for global conscious harmony on the Earth will provide for the survival of humankind. I pray that global sphere classes of the population will emerge as creators of global conscious harmony and harmonious peace. I pray for harmonious peace, for peace from harmony, and for harmony that gives us true peace and happiness. I pray for general harmonious education as a way of humankind, primarily the children of the world, to accept and appreciate harmonious peace and happiness. And I pray for the Global Harmony Association.”
Such are our achievements and tasks as a result of our four years of development. We have good reason to be proud and to be assured of our ability to solve, with dignity, new problems on way of the birth of the harmonious civilization that excludes wars, terror, poverty and other industrial pathologies. only the harmonious civilization can provide for survival, prosperity, happiness, harmonious peace, and the common good to children and future generations. We have walked together on this difficult, but noble, path for four years, and we have every right to congratulate ourselves and our friends for what we have accomplished.
With love and gratitude,

December 15, 2008. World requires harmonizing changes! $27 million as GHA strategy. New Year's message.
Dear Harmony Academy Authors, Friends!
2008 comes to an end. What are its results?
In 2008, through Barack Obama’s election to the United States Presidency, the world understood the necessity of change.
Shocks of this year: global financial crisis in USA; youth revolts in Thailand, Greece, France, and Russia, which tomorrow could occur in any country worldwide; continuous multi-milliard swindles in USA and Germany, creeping worldwide, and others.
These are the modern attributes of the breakdown of an industrial civilization in addition to its traditional defects: wars, violence, terror, poverty, pollution, armaments and so on.
The combination of traditional defects blended with these modern shocks led the world to comprehension of the necessity for immediate changes at last.
But what are changing? And in what is direction? What are the mechanisms and processes of change?
It became obvious, that the industrial deity — that is, money — is a useless mechanism for making decisions about global problems and it is a very small and narrow yardstick for measuring the accomplishments of human beings. Money, as it is well known, will not buy happiness, love or peace. only harmony, social and individual harmony, can give people happiness, love and peace. only harmony is a complete and adequate measure for humans.
Harmonization is the true modern change for humans and the world. Harmonization is the only salvation for humans and the world. Therefore, in 2009, I am convinced that the world will realize this change through harmonization and in harmonization.
The conscious, universal and systematic beginning of change toward harmonization, including the means to resolve modern global problems, world crises and youth revolts, can only be General Harmonious Education and World Harmony/Peace Academy (WHPA).
The world has closely approached to this consciousness of harmonious education. It has created practically all the necessary resources and preconditions for this purpose. The World Peace Congress of educators in Malaysia, at the end of 2008, approved the WHPA project as a means of educational reform, which is necessary for modernity. Now, it is necessary for the modern world, as stated by Eleanor Roosevelt, to experience an "educational revolution."
This educational revolution is required in order to resolve global problems of mankind. The educational revolution is required in order to resolve the youth revolts.
Why do young people revolt? It does not suffice for them to have money? Young people revolt because hopelessness in the absence of positive alternatives. Young people revolt because there is an absence of happiness. Happiness can be realized only through harmony. And harmony can be learned only through general harmonious education.
If the consciousness of youth is limited by a narrow vocational training and disharmonious knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economy, engineering, business, and so on, then the consciousness of youth is open to any destructive system or any anarchic revolt.
Therefore, the resolution of all crises and revolts of modernity are the SUBCONSCIOUS REQUIREMENT of harmony and general harmonious education. This education is a priority throughout the world! And I am convinced that, in 2009, this WILL BE CLEAR for all.
The main contribution to the world’s comprehension and acceptance of harmonization belongs to the Global Harmony Association (GHA), to its ten projects, the crown jewel of which is the WHPA. The brief evolution of our Academic (educational) project since the end of 2007 has concentrated on a search of its financing, in the amount of $27 millionfor the first three years of its first stage. GHA has ALL necessary resources: staff (faculty), information (science), international support and organization for creating the Harmony Academy, EXCEPT FOR $27 million in financing.
What is $27 million? It is a very modest payment for the beginning of a system global harmonization through general harmonious education. It is a paltry sum for the budget of any country, even the smallest and poorest. Business venture capitalists, for example, could invest $27 million in the Academy and sell it to a government in three to four years and show a ten-fold profit.
Some of the GHA members, panicked by crises, have begun to say that now is not the time to search for money for WHPA. I can not agree with that statement. I think differently. I think the opposite: that the modern crises and revolts REQUIRE that we search for $27 millions. Now is not a time to push a brake, but a time for ACCELERATION toward the realization of this project as a positive global change and as a hope for youth and children. only this Academy is capable of creating every one or two years the essentially new humanitarian technologies of harmonization for youth and technologies for economic and financial harmonization that are capable of preventing these crises from continuing and growing at global and local levels in the future.
Therefore, within the conditions of this long crisis, the WHPA project requires expansion of its recognition by others: NGOs, advertising, governments, and funding organizations. We need discussion in MASS-MEDIA, in Congresses of scientists, among teachers and so on. If we, the authors of this project, shall be silent, be inactive, and wait for the mythical "best" industrial times, which never will be, then the positive, harmonizing changes will not be either. Not in USA, nor in Greece, nor in France, nor in any other country. GHA must strengthen our strategies to search for $27 million for Academy financing. This strategy was approved in June 2008. Since then, the chances of the WHPA project coming into existence during these conditions of long crisis are not lowered, but raised.
In this respect, we have made much progress. We sent letters to Governments of four countries: Russia, France, Malaysia and Rwanda and to the UN. We prepare letters for 15 Governments: China, Taiwan, USA, Greece, India, Norway, Israel, Japan, Singapore, Lebanon, Kazakhstan, Ukraine (Crimea), Congo (Brazzaville), Kenya, and Cameroon. I am sure that, in 2009, from these 20 Governments, we will be find one, two, or three that will respond positively to our letters on financing.
The main problem is the search for the leader or General Director for the WHPA national branch and its team. I think each member of the WHPA General Directorate could be such leader, or be a member of this team, or find team members among friends and prepared youth. I think about each author of the project as the member of a national team for this Academy.
Another accomplishment is that our Academic (educational) project has been translated into five languages: Russian, English, Spanish, Chinese and Romanian. It is still necessary that we translate this project into at least four other languages: French, Arabic, Japanese, and Esperanto; the French translation is currently under way, thanks to Prof. Ammar Banni.
The WHPA project is being actively advertised by: Alexander Olshansky in Moscow; Genrih Skvortsov in St. Petersburg; Susana Roberts in Argentina; Guy Crequie in France; Charles Mercieca, Robert M. Weir, and Martha Ross DeWitt in USA; Takis Ioannides in Greece; Rosa Dalmiglio in the European Union and China; Jiang Yimin in China; Lana Yang on Taiwan; Maitreyee Roy in India; Jean Basabose in Rwanda; Muhammad Iqbal in Pakistan; and many others. I am sincerely grateful to each of these people for their great contribution to the Academy project.
Of significance is that the WHPA project was submitted at two international conferences in 2008: in Kuala Lumpur, where it found support of the International Association of Educators for World Peace, and in Yalta’s Conference on interfaith relations where it caused the large interest.
However, these efforts are not enough. Each of the almost 80 co-authors could be telling about this project, its insignificant cost of $27 million, and its highest effect at any public assembly before any audience. This project is urgent for each country in the world. The recognition and destiny of our educational project depends on each of us. I hope, that each of the authors understands this and, in the next year, will define and refine their own initiatives to speak out on behalf of progress of this project.
Personally, I am going to be engaged, until February 1, only in the writing of letters to Governments and in finishing our approved strategy. In view of the special circumstances of the previous 2.5 months when I was unsettled, I can not be engaged in any other of our current projects: mathematics of harmony, textbook, article, etc. However, I shall return to active participation in those areas in February, and we shall approve the plan of our work for 2009.
I also offer to transfer, during the period of February through May, the updating of GHA Statutes and our membership fees into one of the children's organizations, for example, in Kigali. In this connection, I have asked Jean Basabose to find in this city the poor little children's establishment into which we could transfer our membership fees.
There is one more personal problem: my health, which, unfortunately, is not better. The doctors have, for a long time, recommended that I enter a hospital for two or three weeks. Quite probably, I shall be compelled to do that, either prior to or soon after the New Year.
As a whole, the 2008 was great for us and for all GHA members. But I am sure, that the next year will be even greater as the practical realization of the WHPA project will begin in one or several countries of the world.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all you!!! In the New Year, the new steps to harmony, happiness and peace will wait us!!!
