Dear Bruce,

Thank you very much for your excellent, detailed, with many facts, letter to 
President Obama as the only Nobel Peace Laureate among the G20 leaders with a 
copy to Russian Presidency at G20 Summit below.

It is difficult now to say who of the G20 Summit participants more able to 
initiate the Global Peace Science (GPS) to put its question into this agenda - 
there are too many different circumstances and chances for each of them. But 
theoretically, of course, Obama more than others can do it, and as Nobel Peace 
Laureate – it is his trump and potential, and as the initiator of "nuclear 
zero", the idea of ​​which was included in the Agreement with Russia on a new 
nuclear arms reduction in 2009, in London in the spring. This important idea 
for the world was enough to win the Nobel Peace Prize. 

GHA praised the "nuclear zero" as the first sign of a new, harmonious 
civilization, being born within the industrial one and going to replace it. 
That is expressed in two program collective books of GHA: Harmonious 
Civilization, 2009: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=379, and The ABC of 
Harmony for World Peace ... 2012: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=478. 
On the other hand, Obama's nuclear zero is the knowing the stalemate of 
military progress and the arms race. This is a logical self-negation of 
military science and military thinking. Nuclear disarmament is the engine of 
general and complete disarmament. But both of them are not possible without a 
new, peaceful thinking and reason, embodied in GPS, which defines the 
non-military guarantees and non-violent sources for global peace and world 

Another important fact of our time is that most part of economic growth is 
eaten by increasing military spending. They lead to a permanent increase in 
state debt and periodic cumulative economic / financial crises in the world. 
This can be understood only in a paradigm of peaceful thinking and its science 
(GPS), but not in the paradigm of military science and thinking. 

Therefore, we can say with complete justification that GPS is a conscious way 
out from the two interrelated deadlocks of modernity: (1) military (deadlock of 
military progress in the arms race) and (2) economic (deadlock of economic 
growth focused mainly on unmeaning military spending with concomitant global 
economic and financial crises). GPS provides the scientific, acceptable to all 
nations, answers to these two key challenges of our time, revealing the 
advantages of global peace and as a world security guarantee, and as a key to 
sustainable economic growth without crises. 

Consequently, GPS, with similar unprecedented intellectual abilities, 
beneficial to all countries, without exception, is worthy of close attention of 
all governments and deserves to be a permanent theme on the agenda of each 
summit of G20, as each UN General Assembly. Global peace through the prism of 
relevant science (GPS) gives to these bodies and all governments the 
sustainable peace measurement based on a new universal paradigm of scientific 
social thinking and knowledge. Open the high road for this scientific paradigm 
in the 21st century - it is the historical task of the G20 Summit. Who on it 
will be the first able to understand and put this task? This is Hamlet's 
question today for global peace: to be or not to be?

Dear Bruce, your excellent letter to President Obama, as well as other similar 
letters of GHA members: Renato Corsetti - to Prime Minister of Italy; Ayo Amale 
– to Presidents of South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana; Subhash Chandra and 
Surendra Pathak - to Prime Minister of India; Justo Boleka - to Prime Minister 
of Spain; Guy Crequie – to President of France; my and Roxanna Sadykova – to 
President of Russia; my - to the UN and UNESCO leaders - all these letters help 
participants of G20 Summit in St. Petersburg to understand this historical 
problem in a peaceful solidarity. (These letters are published here: 
www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582). Global peaceful solidarity grows 
out from deep harmony of civilizations, cultures and nations of the Earth, 
disclosed GPS.

Similar letters (listed and new, preparing) - is the highest peace 
responsibility of GHA and peace dignity of its members, what we can by right be 
proud. I hope our peace responsibility finds appreciation not only in the GHA, 
but also in the world. 

With love, best harmony wishes,

  Subject: Letter to President Obama - 2009 Peace Laureate  (Copy)

To Russian Presidency at the G20 Summit,September 5-6, 2013, St. Petersburg, 

Copy of the letter is provided

Global Harmony Association (GHA)
August 19, 2013
Mr. Barack Obama, USA President, 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate 
Your initiative as the Nobel Peace Laureate for the G20 Summit on September 5-6 
in St-Petersburg to create the Global Peace Science through democratic 
International Scientific Contest of more than 400 Peace Research Centres 
worldwide under G20 aegis as the USA world's highest peacebuilding prestige in 
the 21st century. 
This idea is presented in detail in the Global Harmony Association (GHA) Open 
Letter by 57 members from 20 countries to the Russian presidency on G20 Summit 
for G20 leaders. I am pleased to send you this Letter (below) with a proposal 
to create the Global Peace Science (GPS), for which there are many 
prerequisites. This letter is published together with other documents for G20 
here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=582. 
Dear Mr. President, only one Nobel Peace Laureate among G20 leaders, 
This GHA Letter is intended to all the G20 Leaders but first to Russian 
Presidency, i.e. to President Putin. However, I think, he will not be able to 
initiate this key peace idea on the G20 Summit. You are the best initiator of 
this turn for humanity peace proposal as the Nobel Peace Laureate. You could 
initiate this idea before the Summit (for example 2-4 September) and make the 
USA the world leader of global peace and pioneer of the Global Peace Science 
(GPS) in human history. This historical event will be connected with your name 
Now, when to the world is shown a way to create GPS and its first in history 
the sample, this science will be established by the international community 
with a relentless necessity - it's a question of the nearest future only. The 
initiation of GPS on G20 will strengthen world prestige and international 
authority of the USA. If USA and Russia does not use this historic chance in 
2013, then any other Chairman of the G20 in the coming years can use this 
advantage. It is inevitable. Especially now, when the GPS initiative has become 
world famous and brought to the G20 leaders attention in many letters and 
publication about it. Your initiative will open a new era of humanity, "a peace 
race," which takes place of "the arms race" that was foreseen by Martin Luther 
King Jr.: "We must shift the arms race into a peace race." This historic shift 
will occur by your initiative, which will define the world history not only in 
the 21st century.
GPS has direct relevance to sustainable global economic growth, which is the 
subject of the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg. Economic growth of the USA is not 
possible without global peace as it is for this growth the first prerequisite 
and eternal and inexhaustible resource, revealed to all of the nations by the 
relevant science - GPS. USA cannot live and grow further into the 21st century 
without abrupt cuts in military spending together with their reduction in all 
countries, i.e. without a global peace that can be understood and accessible 
for conscious everyday and widespread building only on the basis of relevant 
science - GPS. This is a global turning point in human history from a military 
to peaceful one, defined by a new level of human thinking through new paradigm 
of scientific reason.
History has exhausted all war alternatives, leaving only a peaceful alternative 
for humanity. But it requires a corresponding science - GPS. Its rational 
choice and recognition history is first put in 2013 before the G20 Summit. Will 
the G20 accept it as a historical alternative? It now depends only from you 
great peace initiative as the Nobel Peace Laureate, Mr. President.
The USA has many other global social achievements, which find, on the one hand, 
the scientific and theoretical basis in the GPS, and on the other hand, open up 
new areas for its practical application. These achievements include:
The USA bill about U.S. Dept. of Peacebuilding, which was supported by 
California Democratic Party  
The oldest International Association of Educators for World Peace born in the 
USA and including the teachers worldwide 
Systems of Harmony Public Schools in Texas and Louisiana 
Project of economical justice, developed with Reagan times by Center of 
Economical and Social Justice as the Third Way (http://www.cesj.org)  
Interfaith and interspiritual movement in the USA since 1990 
Annual National Harmony Festivals of arts in California 
The Earth Constitution the World Constitution and Parliament Association in the 
USA (www.wcpa.biz)
Hundreds of the USA peace research centres, institutions, foundations and 
societies and so long.
This GPS could also be a new and strong bridge for the improvement and 
development of peaceful relations with Russia, China and other countries and to 
overcome pesky small obstacles as such occasion with Snowden, which is not 
comparable with the value of the global peace.
The Governments of more than 200 years have nursed the science of war, which 
has now best equipped governments with a powerful military industrial complex 
embracing hundreds of millions of staff, with thousands of military academies 
and colleges including tens of thousands of military scientists and teachers 
and millions of listeners (officers and soldiers), and finally with a myriad, 
annually galloping military budget of trillions of dollars, whipping up an 
unrestrained arms race. This is an arsenal of war, prosperous primarily thanks 
to the military mind in the face of military science, consolidating a war 
arsenal with all its zillion resources. The war arsenal of any country creates 
a real opportunity for each government to start aggression against any other 
state, especially a neighbor, as well as within the country at any time. 
Constant realization of this violent opportunity is illustrated by throughout 
history, especially of the last century, in the heyday of military science as a 
top of aggressive mind. Peace mind still no closer to analogous top. 
Therefore, an arsenal of peace, devoid of peace science, is not able to 
withstand the military arsenal and make a real alternative to war. After more 
than two centuries of military science, at the threshold of a single global 
society, economic growth of which depends from global peace, today, more than 
ever we feel the acutest necessity for Global Peace Science. Therefore, its 
initiation at the G20 Summit and its development under the G20 aegis and 
patronage meet today's most pressing need of humanity. The leaders of each 
state, if they want peace instead of war, can initiate the creation of this 
science under the G20 aegis. 
You, as Nobel Peace Laureate and President of the most powerful country in the 
world as no one else have the most opportunities and foundations to initiate 
the creation of this science on the G20 Summit and thereby push the governments 
of the world at least through 200 years after the military science to pay 
attention and to make efforts into alternative direction of peace science.
We can not say that peace has no arsenal. In the 20th century, we see a strong 
international peace movement. So in the first half of the 20th century 
flourished Western European pacifism, which died along with the start of the 
World War II. After its ending the powerful World Peace Council under the USSR 
aegis blossomed, with the collapse of which in 1990 had died and this peace 
movement. Today it is represented by hundreds of peace research centers, 
institutions, foundations and societies, which, despite their importance and 
usefulness, are separated and fragmented for various reasons, but because are a 
very weak compared to the war arsenal. The death of previous peace movements 
and weakness of the modern ones can be explained only by the lack of an 
integrating and consolidating power of mind in face of the Global Peace Science 
Your initiation of this science under the aegis of the G20 governments of world 
leading countries will underpin under the international peace movement of the 
21st century as powerful consolidating scientific platform. Therefore, the 
peace science initiation at the G20 summit with any side is a turning milestone 
in the history of mankind, opening for it the alternative perspective of global 
peace instead of global war and permanent state of preparing war.
All of these world and national key perspectives of global peace depend from 
your initiative as the Nobel Peace Laureate with the GPS creating at the G20 
Summit in this year.

A peace based exclusively upon the political and economic

 be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and

Harmony will save peace. GHA
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 during 8 years 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 Bülow’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).
