Dear Bruce,

Your letter to Mr John Kerry, United States Secretary of State, is excellent 
illustration how to fulfill the peacemaking mission today by the best way with 
and through the Global Peace Science. 

Your letter - it's a good example for all peacemakers now.

Thank you very much for your great personal contribution to the global peace of 
the 21st century through peace science, through higher human mind. 

With love, best harmony wishes,

The Honorable Secretary of State John Kerry

Hon. John Kerry

The main idea of ??the attached letter is: If G20 is dedicated to economic 
growth, then this growth of humanity as a single global society cannot exist in 
the 21st century without science of global peace. There is growing concern in 
the world about the future due to the ever-increasing military spending. It is 
know that peace can not be achieved by force, it can only be reached by reason. 
In this regard, I am pleased to send you the Global Harmony Association (GHA) 
Letter to G20 leaders with a proposal to create a Global Peace Science, for 
which there are all prerequisites. Our country and your work are known by 
peacemaking traditions and aspirations. Therefore, your support of this letter 
and your initiation of this important idea before the G20 leaders would be the 
greatest national and your personal contribution to global peace.

Yours in harmony,

A peace based exclusively upon the political and economic 
arrangements of governments would not be a peace which 
could secure the unanimous, lasting and sincere support 
of the peoples of the world, and that the peace must therefore
be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and 
moral solidarity of mankind. UNESCO Constitution.

G20 Leaders, o­n the Summit, September 5-6, 2013, St. Petersburg, Russia

Global Peace Science for G20 and humanity. 

The GHA proposes to create, under the G20 aegis, Global Peace Science (GPS), 
o­ne of its variants created by the GHA 8 years ago see below. For this 
purpose, establish the G20 appropriate work Committee: “Global Peace Science 
(GPS)” under the leadership of Sherpa and hold a 2014 International Scientific 
Contest among the more than 400 Peace Research Сenters in the world to find the 
best option for GPS, with a result to be discussed and approved at the next G20 
Summit in 2014/15.
“The G20 agenda is organized around three overarching priorities, aimed at 
starting a new cycle of economic growth:
- Growth through quality jobs and investment;
- Growth through trust and transparency;
- Growth through effective regulation” 
These are subjected to the criteria of “sustainable, inclusive and balanced 
growth” as harmonious evolution, spontaneously forming global peace, requiring 
adequate science (GPS). This science will allow G20 to determine the fourth 
most important for the survival of mankind priority of growth: growth through 
peace and for peace but not for war. This priority in the G20 agenda will be a 
new and constant topic of discussion since 2014, when as a result of the 
Contest the most appropriate version of GPS will be selected. This priority 
will provide the highest holism and synergy of active harmonization for all 
areas of economic growth. GPS will give the G20 working process an additional, 
intellectual and moral impetus, optimizing and harmonizing this process, 
greatly expand its formats, and most importantly, subordinating it to the 
peaceful humanistic dimension and meaning of G20. Meeting the challenges of 
economic growth within the GPS provides simultaneous steps towards global peace 
and relevant decision of the most important problem of mankind. This will 
increase G20’s efficiency and public benefit for the global community to higher 
level. Global peace is inexhaustible, but so far an unknown resource for 
sustainable economic growth, which requires a corresponding science. The 
creation of this science is a modern challenge for the G20 - creating a common 
language of peace for the nations and governments in a global society for the 
21st century.

Dear G20 Leaders,

The GHA appreciates your work o­n stabilization and development of the global 
economy and global finance, recognizing that your efforts have the potential to 
spontaneously foster global peace. We recognize the G20 as the world's first 
institution, together with the G8, attempting direct global regulation of world 
economy and finance. Naturally, it’s axiomatic that global peace is a 
prerequisite for sustainable development o­n a world scale. Any global armed 
conflict threatens humanity in, as we know, "nuclear winter", i.e. destruction. 
This is not a phantom danger - it has been proved by scientists around the 
world. It hangs like a sword of Damocles over humanity, including the economy 
with all its finances. In fact, war is more ruinous than any economic and 
financial crisis. Preparing for a war, as expressed in the ever-growing global 
arms race and the constant growth of global military spending –is o­ne of the 
main causes of today’s economic and financial destabilization and the related 
global crises. 

These facts take first place among world challenges affecting potential for 
global peace. Analysis of the situation - its sources, causes, foundations and 
actors – through global peace science (GPS) – is a clear challenge for each 
leader. Unfortunately, this scientific approach has just been created in 
addition to hundreds of scientific institutes and centers engaged in isolated 
and fragmented private peace research o­n national and regional scale, but not 
global level. But this scientific Rubicon can and must be crossed.

For example, considering military science, D. H. von B?low’s (Spirit of Modern 
Military Systems, 1799), developed by Carl von Clausewitz (On War, 1832) and 
recognized by all governments, which continues now by hundreds of thousands of 
military scientists and teachers and studies in thousands of military 
academies, institutes and colleges by dozens of millions of soldiers and 
officers. With comparison with war science, the absence of GPS is a great 
intellectual and historical defect of humanity, finding explanations but finds 
no scientific or moral justification, especially today. If governments have 
been so eager to embrace military science, then how can they avoid accepting 
peace science even now, after almost two centuries, if it will be created?

Humanity has long dreamed of such a science. Immanuel Kant wrote about its 
possibility (i.e. the existence of objective natural source of peace) in his 
great treatise Perpetual Peace in 1795. He found an objective guarantee of 
global peace in the "harmony among men" as social nature, “which finally 
assures peace” (www.mtholyoke.edu/acad/intrel/kant/kant1.htm). If there is an 
objective social nature of peace, then may well be its science. 

Kant’s supposition has received scientific development in the GHA, which has 
developed GPS over 8 years based o­n the theory of social harmony. GPS is 
represented in the GHA’s 7 books and 47 projects of social harmony and global 
peace. The most perfect theoretical expression GPS is found in book: "The ABC 
of Harmony for Global Peace ...." (2012) by 76 co-authors of GHA from 26 
countries: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478. Its empirical expression 
is found in a new Program of "Comparative Sociological and Statistical Study" 
analyzing dynamics of spheral classes of the population in India, USA, Russia 
and Kazakhstan from 1950 to 2010 by decades 
(www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=579. This study is not yet due to lack 
of funding at $ 60,000). GPS represents itself both as a science, not o­nly of 
global harmony, but also the science of global justice, global economy, global 
finance, global prosperity, global law and global democracy. It is expressed by 
the GPS’s holistic model: "Social Genome of Peace from Harmony" (SOCIONOME: 
www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=580). GPS is deeply holistic science, 
covering the main measures of global peace: economic, financial, political, 
legal and others.

In this way, GPS moves from solutions of military conflicts to their 
prevention. All of this is presented in detail in the GHA books and projects, 
and in the GPS general contour o­n 4 pages - in the article "Global Peace 
Science" (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582). 

Further, GPS is connected to another important global project: Constitution of 
the Earth 
(http://worldparliament-gov.org/constitution/the-earth-constitution/), which 
proposes legal democratic regulation of all conditions of global peace: 
economic, political, financial, and so o­n. However, the GPS option is based 
o­n social harmony - this is o­ne of its options, and its first real example, 
which does not exclude the other.

As you can see, there are sufficient scientific backgrounds to create the GPS. 
But this requires the will of world's political leaders, particularly G20 
leaders, to organize an International Scientific Contest under the aegis of 
your Committee. This Contest would be established under the appropriate G20 
working committee under the leadership of Sherpa for competition among more 
than 400 Peace Research Сenters in the world to seek the best option for GPS, 
with a result to be discussed and approved at the next G20 Summit in 2014/15.

Key conditions of the proposed Contest, from our point of view are as follows:

1. The Contest should be open to any group of social scientists who have proven 
themselves by publishing Peace Research by at least 5 scholars from no less 
than two countries without any other restrictions.
2. The Contest will accept scientific texts of projects under the general 
title: "Global Peace Science" having at least 10 pages and no more than 1,000 
pages of electronic and paper versions (perhaps as a book) with a total summary 
of contents in 4 pages or less.
3. Ideally, each project should include at least the following parts / sections:
3.1. A review of previous peace studies, especially of a global scale.
3.2. Underlying theory of global peace with fundamental concepts defining the 
objective ultimate causes, natural actors and spontaneous but harmonious 
sources of global peace.
3.3. Empirical confirmation for the theory of global peace.
3.4. A methodology and main ways to realize the theory of global peace at 
global, regional, national and local levels.
3.5. A rough estimate of the economic efficiency of the global peace theory.
3.6. Applications of global peace science as the theories of global justice, 
global law (especially human rights), global politics, global ecology, global 
democracy, general and complete disarmament, global peace education, harmony 
between religion and science, global culture of peace, global interfaith 
harmony and global interspiritual movement.
4. We propose that the G20 Contest Committee develop "Rules of the GPS Contest" 
with all details, including the necessary funding for research participants in 
the Contest. This Regulation is approved by leaders of the G20.

The GHA has more detailed proposals so it can enter this Contest, which it is 
ready to share.

The historical significance of this Contest is that it will be the first global 
conscious-coupling mechanism of world political leaders, using with GPS as a 
reasonable and therefore the non-violent key to global peace. Its result may be 
the establishment of an International Peace Science Institute under the G20 
aegis. This Contest will mark the beginning of a new era in human history - the 
Age of consciously and universally building harmonious global peace o­n a 
scientific basis. According to the UNESCO Constitution, not o­nly war but also 
peace arises in the mind, but o­nly o­n the basis of relevant scientific 
knowledge, which opens a new era. This era will be the integrated 
implementation of the humanity’s fundamental ideas of peace expressed by human 

Immanuel Kant: "What has nature done with regard to this end (the design of 
perpetual peace) which man's own reason makes his duty? That is, what has 
nature done to favor man's moral purpose…? … Nature guarantees perpetual peace 
… but … making it our duty to work toward this end, which is not just a 
chimerical o­ne."
Leo Tolstoy: "In the hands of war are billions of money, millions of obedient 
troops and in our hands is o­nly o­ne, but the mightiest tool in the world - 
the truth" (true - it is a science).
Mahatma Gandhi: "If we are ever to have real peace in this world we shall have 
to begin with the children" (i.e. with children's education in global peace 
Albert Einstein: "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can o­nly be achieved by 
understanding" (i.e. by mind, armed with the global peace science).
Martin Luther King Jr.: "We must shift the arms race into a peace race" (that 
can be done through global peace science).

Global Peace Science (GPS): 
Natural Actors and Peacebuilding Genome

Science of global peace is general hope of all nations 
to real peace and prosperity o­n the Earth in the 21st century.

Synonyms for concept of global peace are: world-wide, universal, eternal, 
perpetual, continuous, harmonious, non-violent, sustainable, stable, durable, 
lasting, real, planetary, true, future, and etc.
Antonyms are: local, partial, temporary, discontinuous, disharmonious, 
militaristic, unsustainable, shaky, wavering, brief, illusory, regional, false, 
traditional, and etc. peace.

In traditional culture, social science and philosophy, no o­ne has raised the 
fundamental scientific questions of natural social actors, ultimate cause and 
any eternal spontaneous source of global peace. Even Immanuel Kant, in his 
great treatise “Perpetual Peace” (1795), did not do it. But in this work he 
made the greatest discovery of "harmony among men" as a social nature and 
guarantee of perpetual peace - as he said, "the guarantee of perpetual peace is 
… nature". This nature "establishes harmony between morality and politics" 
through "the transcendental concept of public right," o­n which Kant builds a 
harmonious treaty of "perpetual peace among states" 

Accordingly, the answers to such questions were absent. The science of global 
peace does not exist yet. Raising these questions, but more so for the 
scientific answer to them, requires a fundamentally other area of philosophy 
and science - the science and philosophy of global social harmony of society as 
a whole. Such science and philosophy have been developing since 1976 as part of 
Tetrasociology and Tetrism (www.peacefromharmony.org/docs/2-1_eng.pdf). In the 
last 8 years, since 2005, they have developed collectively in the Global 
Harmony Association (GHA) and found expression in its 7 books and 47 projects 
of global harmony and harmonious peace 
(www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=472). Their most complete and perfect 
expression is found in The ABC of Harmony for World Peace … (2012, 334 pages) 
by 76 co-authors of GHA: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478. This 
global textbook of harmony reflects the fundamental concepts (see below) and 
brief history of Global Peace Science (GPS), which is the science of global 
harmony and vice versa. They are identical.

The GPS core is global sociology and global statistics in an indissoluble 
unity. Global sociology reveals the global social structure of human society 
throughout its all history in the form of four eternal harmonious spheral 
classes of the population employed/engaged in the four spheres of social 
production of four necessary and sufficient resources for existence of any 
society and person.

The necessary and sufficient, therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious 
resources are: PEOPLE, INFORMATION, ORGANIZATION and THINGS (material goods and 
services). The lack of even o­ne of them in a certain proportion (harmony and 
measure) with others would make the existence of human and society impossible

The necessary and sufficient resources determine as necessary and sufficient, 
therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious spheres of their constant and 
(economic and ecological spheres together).

The necessary and sufficient spheres of production determine as necessary and 
sufficient, therefore, eternal, natural and harmonious spheral classes of the 
population working (or employed/engaged) in these spheres and therefore called 

The necessary and sufficient spheral classes as eternal, natural and harmonious 
creators/actors of any society are its global social structure. They are at 
SOURCE OF GLOBAL PEACE. They are real, but to transform from spontaneous into 
conscious and effective creators of global peace they need this science (GPS) 
and its understanding, awareness and education in it, to build this peace 

Eternal global peace is a natural, normal and healthy state of the spheral 
classes of population and - together with them - society in a whole. This 
social nature generates and guarantees global peace by spontaneous and 
harmonious spheral classes of the population. Therefore, the spheral classes 
and their natural harmony are the eternal foundation of global peace. From this 
follows the shortest definition of global peace – IT IS PEACE FROM HARMONY, 
which is created and constantly recreated by spheral classes. The war between 
them is not possible, since the death of at least o­ne spheral class means the 
cessation of production of o­ne of necessary resources that leads to death of 
all spheral classes and society as a whole. The resource wars are possible 
o­nly between private and temporal dominant groups, nations, economic or 
political classes, castes, estates, etc. Past history is filled with similar 
private wars. Therefore, peace between private groups and classes is the 
absence of war between them or a break in existing war. This is militaristic, 
private and temporal peace, which is subordinated to war constantly and 
requires permanent preparation. This peace is ensured by force and threat of 
force, giving rise the old rule: “If you want peace - prepare for war.” This 
militaristic trend is reflected in the constant never-ending arms race as 
preparation for an eternal war that is very ingrained and a wasteful social 
pathology bled out all parties. Albert Einstein summed up its inanity: "Peace 
cannot be kept by force. It can o­nly be achieved by understanding", i.e. o­nly 
the mind and consciousness of spheral classes through peace science and 

Humanity will be able to recover from this terrible disease o­nly in the 
development and application of Global Peace Science (GPS). But a global 
sociology is not sufficient unto itself. To consciously harmonize production 
resources at the deepest level of global spheral classes, which also determines 
the conscious building global peace, it is necessary to develop quantitative 
statistical measures and indices of proportions - the harmony of resources and 
all processes associated with them: production, distribution, exchange (market) 
and consumption.
Such measurement in each country has historically been traditional, national in 
character, statistics. But to measure global resources in their global 
production, distribution, exchange and consumption by global spheral classes it 
is necessary to use global statistics. Its basic concepts and indicators, 
together with the fundamental elements of social harmony, including spheral 
classes, are also disclosed in the ABC of Harmony for World Peace (pp. 22-58). 
Global statistics is not possible without a global sociology, and vice versa, 
global sociology is not possible without global statistics. They are 
inseparable, as quality and quantity are inseparable. Their common connecting 
link is the sphere as a structural unit and its quantitative measure - the 
sphere indices. o­nly in the unity of these two global sciences can we have a 
powerful tool for innovative scientific discovery of natural creators of World 
Peace and its scientific building in all countries and regions of the world.

Global sociology and global statistics form the core of GPS, but are not 
limited by them. The integral holistic nature of global peace requires an 
equally integral and holistic scientific knowledge combined in o­ne holistic 
scientific paradigm. It is defined in the ABC of Harmony as a "social genome of 
harmony of society" - SOCIONOME, which is also a "social genome of peace from 
harmony." Socionome expresses the holistic scientific paradigm of a new, 
harmonious and peace, Tetranet thinking and is presented in the ABC of Harmony 
Scheme (pp. 40-41). 
Socionome is a generalized integral expression of GPS as the organic unity of 
the social sciences. Socionome is simultaneously seen as a model for all social 
sciences, i.e. it is as sociological, statistical, economic, demographic, 
historical, cybernetic, synergistic, political, legal, financial, 
environmental, educational, mathematical and etc. model. Interfaith harmony is 
also an important aspect of global peace, which is reflected in the GPS 
(www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=561). Socionome combines all social 
scientific measurements of global peace in its united science - GPS. Therefore, 
socionome is a scientific peacebuilding genome. Please see the GHA video, which 
is dedicated to it: Social Genome of Peace from Harmony, 8 minutes: 

The GPS frame above, in general terms, is o­nly a theoretical hypothesis of 
natural harmonious actors of global peace - the spheral classes of population. 
Any theoretical hypothesis o­nly becomes a full-fledged science when it finds 
empirical support. To do this, GHA has prepared a special program of scientific 
research: "Comparative Sociological Statistical Study (CSSS). Dynamics of the 
Global Social Structure of Spheral Classes of Population: An Example of India, 
USA, Russia and Kazakhstan since 1950 to 2010 by Decades. Natural Evolution of 
Social Harmony, Economic Justice, Democracy and Spirituality towards World 
Peace and its Global Science." (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=579). 
This project of GHA, like others, is an international and global inquiry, open 
to all interested scientists, institutions and countries. At the same time, 
theoretical and empirical scientific knowledge of spheral classes is seen as 
the natural harmonious actors of global peace opening the door for its 
conscious practical building in the 21st century everywhere, in every country 
and every region o­n the basis of a scientific study of its main creators, 
their harmonious education and enlightenment in GPS.

Harmonious education and enlightenment of the spheral classes in GPS transforms 
them from totally ignorant natural actors of peace from harmony to its 
conscious and scientifically educated builders. Scientific knowledge of global 
peace will allow the national leaders, as well as the UN and other 
international organizations, to make better, scientific solutions of any 
national, regional and global issues as they are related to building global 
peace and social cohesion.

Unfortunately, the UN still has not recognized the concept of "science of 
global/world peace." The UN develops a concept of a culture of peace, including 
8 points: mutual respect, understanding, tolerance, democracy, human rights, 
gender equality, sustainable economic and social development and education. A 
culture of peace in the interpretation of the UN is very important and 
necessary step towards global peace but not sufficient. It is limited by the 
intuitive perception of peace and deprived of its scientific understanding, 
though science is the key point of culture, providing a practical 
implementation of ideas. Therefore, the CSSS project, laying the theoretical 
and empirical foundation for GPS, deserves the attention of all states, 
governments and their leaders, but above all the UN as a major peacekeeping 
tool of humanity. GPS consolidates and develops the UN’s 8 point culture of 
peace, raising them to a qualitatively new level of peace thinking. Peace 
researches/studies are another important prerequisite for GPS. However, they 
are confined by narrow local conflicts and do not touch o­n global peace and 
its natural harmonious actors.

Social harmony and Global Peace from it are a more powerful source of wealth 
for humanity than oil, gas, diamonds, IT, etc., taken together. But to use this 
unknown and inexhaustible natural resource of humanity requires adequate 
scientific knowledge for all nations - GPS. The minimum cost of the CSSS as the 
GPS first project and o­ne scientific step to world peace is o­nly $60,000. It 
pales in comparison with colossal benefits it promises through Global Peace in 
a scientific plan, which will open the way for its scientific practical 
realization for humanity in the 21st century.

This science opens up an effective way for the complete disarmament of humanity 
in the 21st century, during 50 years to reduce military spending by 2% annually 
by all countries (www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=529) and for 
transformation of the armed forces of war into the armed forces of global 
peace. These forces could form a "Global Peace Corps" of the 21stcentury under 
the UN aegis for peaceful harmonious education, health, construction, ensuring 
food and water and overcoming of unemployment. Of course, peace building 
requires other weapons than for war, but just as well-trained and 
scientifically prepared professionals. o­nly in this way can we approach the 
embodiment a great dream of Martin Luther King Jr.: "We must shift the arms 
race into a peace race."

A sustainable positive future of the global world is unthinkable and impossible 
without a science of world peace and scientific peacebuilding. Global social 
harmony is the source and guarantor of global peace and common confidence of 
nations, which can be used effectively o­n the basis of GPS as a general 
consciousness of all the peoples. This science opens the way for a new, 
harmonious civilization, excluding war and violence, and with them other 
pathologies of mankind in the outgoing industrial civilization. The survival of 
humanity and its sustainable economic and social development in a globalized 
world and harmonious civilization are possible o­n the basis of GPS. Therefore, 
the value of this science for the fate of humanity is difficult to 
overestimate. This science transforms harmony as a fundamental value of 
humanity since ancient times, combining all the other values ??in the modern 
scientific worldview, spiritually uniting all peoples of the world in a single 
peace-loving family o­n Earth.

Many feel that Global Peace Science can not be created through isolated and 
fragmented efforts of countless peace research institutes and the efforts of 
separate scientists. While these efforts are commendable, it would seem more 
logical and effective to achieve best results in a global way, with collective 
and solidarity efforts of scientists from various social sciences, different 
countries and cultures in the spirit of Durkheim and harmony. This integral and 
holistic scientific trend has thriving in the Global Harmony Association during 
more eight years. But it requires an expansion of participants and its 
influence to ensure success in the creation and recognition of an unprecedented 
development to be called Global Peace Science.
The main obstacle hindering international cooperation to create GPS may be a 
lack of understanding of this science as modern planetary necessity by 
traditional peace institutions and scientists. It is possible that they 
question the need for GPS, or prefer to restrict current efforts to isolated 
and fragmented researches. Of course, GPS may become better known and accepted 
and scholars will recognize the need for the creation of this science o­nly 
through proof of the theory in the empirical study now being proposed (CSSS). A 
new trend in peacebuilding within global peace science (GPS) will emerge 
demonstrating intellectual and practical preferences of international 
cooperation by liked peaceful institutions. In this scientific collaboration, 
each peace scientist and organization can find room in a harmonious unity with 
a diversity of other scholars and institutions.
This article consolidates the GHA peace ideas, so it is its true author.

P.S. My life status about 40 years at homeland in the state: in Soviet Union 
since 1976 and in Russia since 1990 and still is dissident. This is connected 
with my discovery and development of Tetrasociology (Sphere Approach since 
1976) as the science of social harmony, harmonious civilization, harmonious 
spheral classes and global harmonious peace that is provided by these classes. 
This science is contrary to Marxism as ideology of class war, which, in fact, 
remained in Russia. My status is confirmed by many facts. The fresh fact of 
2012 from this series look here:
