Dear Ernesto,

Thank you very much for your strong support of the GHA project, which was 
supported by the donations of 30 members from 12 countries. 

You very well feel the true peaceful moods differing them from peaceful lie, 
which allowed to be all wars and genocides of 20th and 21st centuries. 

You promised your very important article about genocide of the past. Please, 
let me know: when I could receive it? Thank you.   

With love, best harmony wishes,

Subject: [gha] Donations to Global Peace as the GHA Ethics and GPS Moral Dignity
Dear GHA members, friends,

I am happy to announce that the GHA 50th project "World Honorary Titles of 
Global Peace for Donations" was approved by the GHA after three weeks of 
discussions. We did not get a single vote against it. I heartily congratulate 
and thank everyone for it support. The updated project was published below and 
on the website: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=590. 

The project banner: "Gandhis, Nobels and Maecenases for Global Peace of the 
21st century" was posted on the main page 
(www.peacefromharmony.org). We thank Bruce Cook for his editing of the English 
text. This project will be published in the GPS book special chapter. Let me 
generalize its logic, which has several sides.

1. Social logic. Trillions of dollars are spent every year in industrial 
militaristic civilization for war and its preparation and the budget of global 
peace is almost zero. Therefore, in this civilization is no one book or project 
devoted to global peace. As a result, the GHA nine-year experience empirically 
proved that in the militaristic situation we can publish our books and 
projects, dedicated to global peace from harmony, only through donations. In 
this way, the GHA has published 7 books and 50 projects of global peace for 9 
years. From this logic, it follows that one who does not want to donate at 
least one dollar to global peace, one does not want peace and does not want the 
publication of books devoted to it. Therefore, he cannot participate in their 
creation. In social aspect, no harmony can be with disharmony of greed, with 
its injustice and militarism. To reeducate it takes decades and centuries.

2.Moral logic. Mainly, moral merit of this project is its support by the 
donations of 29 coauthors of Global Peace Science (GPS) of 50 ones. (Naturally, 
number of the GPS coauthors - donors will grow.) This means that the principle 
of donation to global peace as its moral support is approved by a majority of 
co-authors as a criterion of moral dignity to participate in the GPS creation. 
This ethical requirement is absolute and unprecedented for GPS and its 
coauthors as unprecedented is global peace of the 21st century. This 
requirement is just and necessary, as global peace can do only good and clean 
hands. Greedy and dirty hands it did not.
All GPS coauthors were invited to make any donation (it maybe in 1, or 10, or 
100, or 1000 USD and so on) as a symbol of MORAL contribution and support of 
global peace. The 29 coauthor have made the most different donations ​​by 
publicly announcing them. These GHA members, with more than modest incomes of 
the poorest countries, have proved by their donations them true dedication to 
global peace and ethical dignity to serve it. A donation for global peace is 
question of moral honor for coauthors of its science! A donation of at least 
one dollar for global peace expresses it in the first place, compassion and 
moral support. Ethics of GPS is the moral law of support a global peace: a 
person is not able to donate to it at least one dollar deprives himself the 
moral right to participate in the GPS creation. This law was approved by a 
majority of votes: 29 of 50.

3. Organizational logic. We see as our friends from the poorest countries: 
Nepal, Argentina, Rwanda, India and others are finding the opportunity to 
donate to global peace; and people from the richest country, such as Glen 
Martin and many his compatriots ignored this moral support. (It was my main 
reason to leave him as the second editor). This is an open contempt to 29 
coauthors in "a very polite manner" as Laj said. Ignoring the moral support is 
identical to glaring disharmony, injustice and inequality that are unacceptable 
for global peace, because it is impossible without harmony, equality and 
justice. These people have been unable to overcome the typical American 
morality of greed, which is condemned worldwide. We, more than 29 authors 
reported our donations will not be able to work ethically with such people in 
the GPS book. Some colleagues from the poorest countries rightly ask: why the 
articles of rich coauthors, receiving monthly more than 5 thousand dollars but 
did not finding even one dollar for global peace, must be printed on the 
donations of the poor authors receiving 100-300 dollars a month in countries 
such as Nepal, Argentina, Ghana, India, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Rwanda, etc.??? 
The United States became the world's axis of greed, extreme individualism and 
militarism that has made them the main obstacle and threat to global peace 
(http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/12/31-6). In creating GPS we cannot 
cooperate with people who share the American mainstream morality. We cannot 
allow that in the GPS project the rich lived at the expense of the poor. 
However, these people have the possibility of moral change, worthy to global 
peace. But if it does not, then let we stay in half of the coauthors but we 
will protect the GHA and GPS from public shame of greed of the rich, for which 
one dollar is more value than global peace!

4. Individual logic. I, as the GHA founding president during 9 years as an 
editor and manager of its seven books and 50 projects within this time, I 
cannot expect anything like this from the GHA peacemakers even in the worst 
nightmare! Moral paralysis of greed – it is the discovery of my life for 72 
years! Our vote and discussion, as a sociological study, initiated by me, found 
this unexpected moral perversion among the GHA peacemakers. So, naturally, I 
cannot work with such people and edit their articles in a book devoted to 
global peace, for which they regretted even one symbolic dollar. I would be 
ashamed to work with them and my conscience will not allow me it. How it would 
not been bitter and difficult us in this moral conflict but it has a positive 
value in the moral catharsis and spiritual cleansing the GHA team, first 
working in the GPS creation, without which global peace is impossible. We will 
free GPS from the shame of greed and will preserve moral honor of the pioneers 
of global peace and its science. As they say, a blessing in disguise! 

Best wishes for harmony and moral honor to each peacemaker, 

Dr. Leo Semasko, 
GHA President

1. Motivation

           Global Peace from Harmony in the 21st century is an unprecedented 
phenomenon and unprecedented task of humanity in world history. Therefore, it 
requires the equally unprecedented social, spiritual, cultural and moral ideas, 
initiatives and efforts as well as unprecedented people and their leaders. They 
are prepared for the first time to consciously and systematically develop the 
Global Harmony Association (GHA) during 9 years since February 2005: 
www.peacefromharmony.org (which has about 5 million visits). This website 
published thousands of pages of peacemaking diversity, including the GHA’s 
seven books and 49 projects of global peace from harmony. The GHA created, by 
using and uniting this diversity, the foundations of unprecedented Global Peace 
Science from Social Harmony in the ABC of Harmony for World Peace (2012: 
www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478) and is now preparing the text of 
this science for a special book (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=585). 
Without this science Global Peace of the 21st century is impossible. These 
spiritual achievements of the GHA made it an unprecedented scientific and 
holistic center for Global Peace in the 21st century.
            Mankind stands on the brink of military self-destruction by 
militaristic civilization, where almost every adult is constantly forced to pay 
taxes to the military budgets of $ 2 trillion dollars annually and global peace 
is devoid of any system of funding remaining at zero. War, violence and 
terrorism have millions of sponsors in this civilization and global peace only 
one sponsor - the Nobel Peace Prize offering just over a million dollars a 
year. Such a weak level of sponsorship was powerless to ensure global peace in 
the 20th century which was filled with world, interethnic and terrorist wars.
         The social pathologies of this civilization - greed, consumerism, 
extreme individualism and other confront to global peace - these pathologies 
have been criticized by the Supreme Pontiff Francis. GHA develops this 
criticism in the current project and others. Global peace of the 21st century 
will never come without a common scientific understanding of the sources, 
guarantees and actors of global peace and without systemic institutional 
funding in trillions of dollars beginning with donations of the most 
conscientious citizens-peacemakers.
           Unprecedented Global Peace Science is created in the GHA, which 
consolidates it with the best historical examples of peacemaking and 
self-sacrifice: Numa Pompilius (Rome, 8-7 century BC), Gaius Maecenas (Rome, 
1st century BC), Francis Assisi (Italy, 1182 - 1226), Alfred Nobel (Sweden, 
1833 - 1896) and Mahatma Gandhi, India (1869 - 1948). GHA crystallizes and 
integrates the most effective human resources of world history to achieve 
global peace in the 21st century. This allows GHA to establish an unprecedented 
World Honorary Titles of Global Peace to initiate, motivate and stimulate 
unprecedented civil peace movement for Global Peace in all its dimensions: 
social, spiritual, political and economic. These integral dimensions of global 
peace are expressed by the unprecedented scientific Social Genome - SOCIONOME:

SOCIONOME is a scientific symbol and essence of Global Peace from Harmony in 
deep structural comprehension of its sources, guarantees and actors

voluntary accumulation of funds (donations) to fulfill the following 
peacemaking tasks:
1. Political resistance and organization of mass civil nonviolence disobedience 
to war (only) taxes with a positive alternative of general and complete 
disarmament (GACD) for 50 years (until 2065) through the reduction of military 
budgets of all countries by 2% annually. (This objective, in the first 
approximation is formulated in the GHA appropriate petition to the UN here: 
2. Development and promotion of Global Peace Science as a consolidated 
scientific peacemaking consciousness based on the social genome (SOCIONOME) of 
global harmony in all countries: (http://youtu.be/hbxY5lREOeA).

Harmony, Monitoring Centers of Peace and War 
(www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=588) etc.

transfer, the GHA Board and the President determines all the parameters for 
transferring donations acceptable to the sponsor.

5. Sponsor’s Organs and Functions within the GHA

1. The GHA approved sponsors of Global Peace create an independent Supervisory 
Board of Sponsors (SBS) to control the use of donations for Global Peace and 
determine the details of its regulatory relationship with GHA.
2. SBS elects the necessary bodies of governance and creates its own Charter, 
which is offered for discussion and approval by the GHA members.
3. Within this Charter the SBS creates other necessary bodies of governance and 
monitoring at its discretion.
