Dear Charles,

Many thanks for your 100% support and your $ 100 as your moral and financial 
support of Global Peace! 

Well, you double Laj?s donation but to prepare the book requires that more than 
half of the donations were not doubled and increased 5-fold, at least (of 
course, except for the co-authors of poorest countries). 

Let me remind you that our book (not mine only) is planned for 400 pages in two 
languages, Russian and English in both electronic and paper forms. Total 
expenditure on this book in a minimum amount 40 thousand dollars, 20 thousand 
per country: Russia and the USA. They accounted for $12,000 to pay for 
statistical research, its translation into another language and editing in each 
country and by $8000 on the translation, editing and publication of the book, 
which is scheduled for November or December 2014.

Now the book 37 co-authors confirmed by their donations a moral right to 
participate in it. The total amount of promised donations of 37 coauthors is 
about $12.700 dollars: it is little more than a quarter of the required amount. 
If we do not find new means we will be forced to reduce the number of articles 
in half (from 60 to 30 ) and the length of each article up to 2 pages to reduce 
the book length from 400 to 100-150 pages. I also will be forced to reduce the 
statistical study by nearly half: it will cover the population dynamics of the 
two countries from 1950 to 2010 does not by decades (there are 7) and in the 
twentieth: 1950, 1970, 1990 and 2010 - there are only 4. We cannot also publish 
more than one poem of each poet. Therefore, we should all be ready for a sharp 
reduction in the co-authors number, their articles and the length of each 
article, because more donations we are unlikely to obtain now. We have 
exhausted our donations opportunity.

Dear Charles, let me suggest for your consideration another option: we publish 
this book together with your International Association of Educators for World 
Peace (IAEWP), emblem of which we will put on the book front cover (similar 
IASE University logo on the cover of the ABC of Harmony), with your 
participation as the second editor in chief and with your funding of this book 
at least 13 thousand dollars. Then we could publish our book in full. But could 
you provide for it no less than 13 thousand dollars from sponsors of your IAEWP 
or Swiss Business School? It would be a great option from all points of view. 
As you are 100% supporting me, we would provide full consent in joint editing 
this book. What do you think about this option? 
Could be your IAEWP will be the GHA equal partner in making this historic book, 
without which global peace is impossible? 

The GHA now completes the organizational phase (including funding) of long 
preparatory period in creating our book. I'm starting now a statistical study 
of the dynamics of spheral classes of the population of Russia since 1950. I 
think this study require me to not less than two months - March and April. So I 
can start editing articles for the book since May-June 2014. Naturally, this is 
a rough schedule, which may change. 

In these two months I also will suggest for teachers a simple statistical study 
of the spheral classes at the school level. To do this, I'll send you a sample 
of this study by teacher Svetlana Kuskovskaya at her school near St. 
Petersburg, and special instructions. These simple studies (1 page) will be 
published in our book. These studies have a dual meaning: 1. They will 
strengthen the empirical foundation for Global Peace Science (GPS) and 2. They 
show the simple real picture of spheral classes of the population as a global 
social structure at the level of our educational institutions in which we work. 
This harmonious structure at all levels is an objective natural source of 
global peace. But people still do not know it without our GPS, so they cannot 
consciously use it to ensure global peace in every cell of society. 

I think, Charles, you will be interested in this research as a historian, and 
you will spend it with pleasure at your university for a couple of hours. This 
will be another step in the GHA historical path to create the world's first 

With love, best harmony wishes,

Dear Leo:

As I told you recently, I do want to give you some money to help you with the 
finances you need for your peace-work. I noticed our friend Laj has is giving 
you $50 dollars. I plan to double that and send you $100 dollars with a 
cashier?s (bank-draft) check. Give me the address where I may send it to you 
immediately. Looking forward and keep up the good work.

You are providing GHA with sound good leadership. Although some of our friends 
have disagreed with your modus operandi, this should not serve as a cause of 
discouragement. I am fully behind you and I support you 100%. Your sense of 
priorities seems to be fully in good order. Looking forward to hearing from you 
and keep up the good work.

As President Vladimir Putin and all Russian peace-workers would tell you 
without hesitation, spaceebah balshoye y do svydania.

 Dear Leo:
                Thanks for your wonderful message here below. I did sent you 
the three articles you requested for your new book and I know you got them. I 
think I am quite vocal since I often speak of GHA very highly. 
As I told you earlier, I am sending you $100 dollars for your peace-work, twice 
as Laj promised. Let me know the address where I may send you this cashier?s 
(bank-draft check) and it will be on the way soon. 
I want to confirm that I am behind you 100% and I am ready to do anything you 
may need the best I can. Keep up the good work. The world needs your harmonious 
and much needed leadership. Thank you.

Dear Charles,

You are one of the GHA leaders its Vice - President. Now there is a discussion 
of a very important project for the GHA and for fate of our book: Global Peace 
Science (GPS). Your example is very important for GHA members. 

Why you are silent about this project and about your donation to GPS? It is a 
bad example. Please give a good example: we all are waiting for your public 
response about the project and your donation: what is its sum (it can be $1000 
or $200 or $100 or $10 or $1 - I understand your situation but could you donate 
$100 or $10???) and when we can get it? This will be your great moral 
contribution and your moral support for Global Peace. Could we receive it from 

Thank you for your public response. It is now the most important thing for the 
GHA and for you personally as its leader. 

With love, best harmony wishes,
