The Mystery Behind the Meles-Isaais Covenant: What Ethiopians and Eritreans did not Know and Must Know By Kaleb Gebremeskel

First and foremost, I like to thank Ehiomedia for exploring and exposing the story behind the assassination of Hayelom Araya; Ethioobserver for breaking the news on the crime of Bsrat Amare; Abebe Gelaw for providing follow-up stories on Bsrat’s crime; and Abughida for maintaining an open forum for the Ethiopian Diaspora.

This essay goes beyond Hayleom’s murder story and Bisrat Amare’s crime and covers a range of mysteries that characterize the leaderships of the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF) and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), and in order to crystallize the hidden agenda of these two organizations, it is important to briefly assess their origins and background.

From the outset, the EPLF was an intriguing organization that confused Eritrean and Ethiopian progressive forces by its “progressive” slogans and party program. The EPLF indeed successfully camouflaged itself by promoting Marxism-Leninism within its ranks, although it was neither Marxist, nor progressive, nor nationalist. There is no doubt that there were nationalists within the EPLF, but they did not know that Isaais was a planted agent when he joined the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF) in 1966. Some say, Ras Asrate Kassa, the then governor of Eritrea, recruited him; others claim that the CIA in the mid-1970s recruited Isaais when he secretly met his patrons at Kagnew Station in Asmara, the then American military base. Isaais was accompanied by two Eritreans, namely Tsegai Iyasu and Tesfamichael Georgo (Weddi Georgo). It was Weddi Georgo who first broke the top secret of Kagnew when he surrendered to the Derg, the then military government of Ethiopia, but when the TPLF-led EPRDF forces marched on Addis Ababa in 1991, EPLF agents assassinated Weddi Georgo. In 1991 a lot of people (mainly of Tigrayan and Eritrean origin), suspected of being brothers to opposition elements in the Diaspora, or who did not contribute money during the so-called struggle years, or who were perceived as threat were assassinated by the joint TPLF-EPLF death squads in Addis Ababa and elsewhere.

Tsegai Iyassu, who was a resident in Michigan, USA, kept the secret of Kagnew for himself all these years, and after he died his body was flown to Asmara, and during the funeral and burial ceremony, non other than Isaais Afeworki was present. Good riddance for Isaais. Now, the only one person alive that knows what took place at Kagnew is Isaais Afeworki.

In the middle of the 1970s, i.e. 1975-76, some progressive groups within the EPLF, known by their adjective name Menkaẽ (“bat”) were eliminated in the EPLF-controlled areas in Eritrea, and it is during this time that TPLF original fighters were trained in a place known as Ẽen, in one of the EPLF’s training areas in lowland Eritrea. After the training was over, the first TPLF fighters, led by Seyoum Mesfin and Aregawi Berhe, marched to Tigray and found a base area around Dedebit in the Shire area of western Tigray.

At Dedebit, the first TPLF fighters were met with stiff resistance from the local people and because they were few in number (around 140 of them) and lack fighting experience, they were forced to abandon their first base area and move to a remote place in the Ethiopian Eritrean border known as Wida’k. During this time, the main field leaders were Seyoum Mesfin, Gessesse Ayele (a Shire resident and former MP during Haile Selassie), and Mehari Tecle (a Tigrayan born in Asmara).

On October 1976 the TPLF core leaders held a meeting in Dema, Agame (eastern Tigray) and for the first time they established a central command in the form of central committee for their organization; Aregawi Berhe became the political leader; Mehari Tecle (Mussie) the military commander; Ghidey Zeratsion, commissar; Abbai Tsehaye, in charge of political affairs; Agazi, economic affairs; and Sebhat Nega, organizational affairs. Gessesse Ayele (Sehul) was left without any portfolio.

Sehul subsequently resigned and told his comrades he “would rather help them from outside Ethiopia, somewhere from Sudan.” He probably felt bad when his comrades were assigned to a high level leadership posts while he was left without duties. Nonetheless, the TPLF leadership accepted his resignation and he was determined to walk all the way to the Sudan, but while he was on his way he was mysteriously killed. Some say the Ethiopian Democratic Union (EDU) fighters killed him but there is no credible evidence for this claim. Likewise, Mehari Tecle (Mussie), in a skirmish with EDU forces was wounded, profusely bled and died; some say he was shot by a “friendly fire”. Beyond these kind of systematic killings, the TPLF is also known for eliminating its own comrade-in-arms as well as opponents outside its organization. A good example of the latter is the murder of the Tigray Liberation Front (TLF) leaders.

There is no credible source of information in regards to the murder of the TLF core leaders. However, some sources indicate that they were shot point-blank while they were asleep in a place where they had come to negotiate with the TPLF leaders. But according to the Marxist Leninist League of Tigray (MLLT) report of July 1985 (pp. 98-100), “following the agreement reached by the two organizations, the TLF came to the meeting place. During this time the TLF was already divided into three; it was known that the one (main) group was in favor of unity with the TPLF, but the Mafia-type of killings committed by the TLF leaders that was kept secret till this time became public and the TPLF fighters heard about it. Despite this problem, however, the TPLF decided to initiate the process of unification. When the unity process was completed, it was ascertained that the TLF leaders, knowing that their deeds were exposed and fearing that they will be held responsible, they had planned to escape. Even if they had decided to escape, it was increasingly becoming clear that they would have continued their mode of killings and engaged in terror. One of these Mafia-type criminals opened fire and he was unwilling to surrendered and he was killed, and the other TLF leaders were put under control.”

The MLLT report is a fabrication of the TPLF leaders and the real Mafia actually is the TPLF leadership, especially the Meles-Sebhat group. Unless the history of the TPLF is rewritten, we may never know the extent of the crime committed by this organization against the people of Tigray in particular and the Ethiopian people in general.

Following the elimination of the TLF from Tigray, sometime in 1977 a faction initiated by the rank-and-file fighters hit the TPLF. This faction movement that had shaken the foundations of the TPLF was branded by the latter as Henfeshfesh (chaos) although the demand of the fighters was simply “to have an equal say within their organization,” because they felt that fighters coming from various districts in Tigray were not treated equally. In addition to this simple request, the fighters challenged the TPLF leaders and criticized them for their political immaturity and for lacking military strategy. They also complained that people coming from Adwa, Shire, and Askum dominated the TPLF; they strongly believed that the rest of Tigray was underrepresented.

The Henfeshfesh crisis got out of hand and the military leadership of the TPLF was divorced from the rank-and-file, and it was during this time that Hayelom Araya, a high-ranking military commander, requested resignation. As a result, the timid and frightened TPLF leadership had to devise a strategy to put down the rebellion within its organization. One of the strategies was to eliminate the spear leaders of the Henfeshfesh and thus one of the Henfeshfesh leaders, by the name Solomon (Hayet), was murdered in his sleep.

Ghebremedhin Araya and Asghede, the author of Gahdi (a very important book that deals with the sinister and diabolical schemes of the TPLF leaders), recently exposed the nasty politics of the TPLF. Ghebremedhin was clever enough to have left Ethiopia in the nick of time; otherwise, his fate could have been the same like that of Tesfamichael Giorgo.

Given the above politics of murder and intrigue of the TPLF and the EPLF, one could conclude that the two organizations, or more specifically Meles and Isaais, are two faces of the same coin. However, I don’t think Ethiopians and Eritreans knew about the covenant or hidden agenda of the two leaders.

Both leaders have laid-off university professors suspected of being undesired elements; both have imprisoned political opponents and in some instances murdered them; both leaders have attempted to subdue the moral of the people they rule; both have attempted to destroy their respective societies; both are mercenaries to a strange patron saint.

Exposing the common denominator of this political duet in the Horn of Africa is not enough unless we further uncover their deeds and political pursuit. Both are supported by their patron saint, but while Isaais constantly attacks and condemns his patron (Mafia-type pretense), Meles does not entertain any word in regards to his overseer commandant. However, at one point, Meles was unable to govern and rule as he wished and he consulted the matter to his wizard-saint and the latter inquired, “who are the groups that are giving you trouble?” and Meles replied, “they are Tewelde, Seeye, Gebru, and Aregash.” “Well,” said the patron saint, “you could systematically oust them from their power, by first provoking them and using that pretext you either get rid of them all put them behind bars, but do not kill them, because if you kill them the people might revolt.”
The grand wizard, as mentioned above, recruited Isaais and the latter, in turn, recruited Meles. It is at this point that the covenant between the two was established and once a joint EPLF-TPLF communiqué was agreed upon, the two leaders concocted a hidden agenda that neither Ethiopians nor Eritreans detected to this day. Even the close associates of the two leaders, who are now either ousted from power or imprisoned, did not know about the janus-faced Meles and/or Isaais.

The hidden agenda was to become operational when the TPLF ostensibly called upon Ethiopian progressive forces in the so-called Addis Ababa Charter in 1991, where Isaais was also present. Isaais’ presence in the conference was not merely symbolic or a sign of solidarity; it was in fact meant to help and encourage Meles and the TPLF stay the course in Addis Ababa, because both of them were not sure whether the Ethiopian people would accept or reject the TPLF.

The Ethiopian people did not embrace the TPLF/EPRDF, but when the latter’s forces marched on Addis Ababa the people did not show resistance either. Still, Meles and Isaais were not confident; the Eritrean case was taken for granted because Isaais knew well that Eritreans love and support him and on top of this Isaais had witnessed the euphoria of the people that had gripped his country for so long. For some unknown reason, Eritreans (excluding the opposition) love Isaais even when he mistreats and abuse them, and the gathering of Eritreans at the Manhattan Center in New York on September 25, 2011 to show their affection and love to Isaais is good enough to conclude that Issais is idolized by his people.

In Ethiopia, on the contrary, the people were silent and the two leaders likened the silence to a dormant volcano. They were concerned that the Ethiopian people could rise up anytime and topple the EPRDF regime. In the event the Ethiopian people revolted and the TPLF/EPRDF is unable to rule over Ethiopia, the two leaders agreed to establish a Tigray-Eritrea state at the expense of dismantling Ethiopia. This did not happen, of course, but the agenda is still considered as an option by Meles and Isaais.

The other grand agenda that the two leaders concocted was that Meles preside over a weak Ethiopia without outlet to the sea and Isaais systematically turn Eritrea into a failed state. In other words, Eritrea was to commit infanticide while a divided Ethiopia breaks down into several states. Today, although Eritrea is not like Somalia, it is on the brink of a failed state; Ethiopia has not broken yet but given the ‘divide and rule’ policy of the EPRDF and the fragility of the Horn of Africa, the country may face the same fate of a failed state as well. To some extent, the joint agenda worked in Ethiopia and to a greater extent it became a reality in Eritrea.

The reason I say “to some extent” in relation to Meles’ agenda in Ethiopia is not because he did not try his best to dismantle Ethiopia but because he met strong challenges within his party, the TPLF, and other opposition parties in Ethiopia. Meles and the EPRDF allowed “elections” in Ethiopia (hypocrisy of the highest degree) because the people terrified them. In Eritrea, such scenario does not exit; Eritreans seem to be satisfied with the way Isaais governs Eritrea. Every time Meles imprison political opponents (like Seeye Abraha or Birtukan Medeksa), the Ethiopian people opposed the government and demanded the release of the prisoners. When Isaais imprisoned Petros Solomon, Mohammed Sherifo, and Haile W. Tensae (Durủ), Eritreans were silent. That is why Seeye and Birtukan are now freed and but Petros, Durủ, and others are languishing in prison in unknown location in Eritrea.

In all the intricate and messy politics that we have seen above, Meles and Isaais are not alone. They were accompanied from day one by patron cupids (messengers of the patron saint) who serve as consultants, ministers, government bureaucrats, university professors, and in some cases as preachers in churches and mosques alike (same like the missioners who came to Africa before the Europeans colonized it).

The patron cupids are recruited from all over, irrespective of nationality and religious backgrounds. Some of them work closely with Meles and Isaais and they are their official advisors; the rest of the cupids have acted as if they are in the opposition in order to hoodwink the real opposition. They are dangerous because they speak the language of the people and they were assigned to infiltrate the opposition at home and in the Diaspora, and that is why the Ethiopian and Eritrean opposition groups in the Diaspora were unable to secure unified and strong political organizations in the last two decades.

In conclusion, I like to reconfirm that the Meles-Isaais covenant is still on, although it could be in its diminished state. The objective of the covenant was sometime tarnished as a result of the Ethiopian-Eritrean war of 1998, when Ethiopia came out victorious in the war. Then, Meles and Isaais were caught by surprise because the Ethiopian people rose in unity to defend their country. But the covenant is still on and the symptoms are the following: Isaais’ Eritrea is trying its best to reestablish relations with neighboring countries; reenter the Inter-Governmental Agency for Development (IGAD) of the Horn of Africa regional development cooperation; reenter the African Union (AU) and reestablish its embassy in Addis Ababa. Moreover, Italy has recently brokered “a peaceful resolution to the conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea,” and based on this pretext Meles and Issais are scheduled to meet in person. We will not be surprised if the two leaders pause for a photo opportunity. They have accomplished their mission, but they may face the rage of the people in the end and they may be forced to reprogram their amygdale of fight or flight. We have to wait and see.

    This article is full of crap no wonder it is supported by ethiomedia the queen of made up stories . I guess it is hard to swallow the reality that the brutal and facsist amara government is over. How soon do we forget when the Eritrean and the tigrians were murdered on a daily basis? How soon do we forget when hailesllaseie violated the federation and annexed Eritrea? How soon do we forget when the Amharic language was forced in out throat? How soon do we forget when leader of the Amhara declared that they do not need the Eritrean but their land? You can make up stories as much as you want, which is done on a daily basis on the ethiomedia, but the people will not go back to that awful time of Amhara rule so it is better to swallow the reality and stop this nonsense.

    “The MLLT report is a fabrication of the TPLF leaders and the real Mafia actually is the TPLF leadership, especially the Meles-Sebhat group. Unless the history of the TPLF is rewritten, we may never know the extent of the crime committed by this organization against the people of Tigray in particular and the Ethiopian people in general.”
    That is why they have been successful all these years, the ability to hide their crime and to keep their secrets, CIA style.

    Issayas has been saying comfortably so many insults on USA and West now days is because he must be a planted CIA/Egypt with Meles to dismantle Ethiopia. That is why they can criticize the West and they get away with it. It is evident that Issayas/Shaebia has been the gate keeper for TPLF in case Ethiopians revolted. The Tigrayans even within TPLF their army must realize now Meles is an agent will always work against Tigrayans and Ethiopian people. As for Issayas, the Eritreans think he gave them their “freedom” from Ethiopia and by now if they haven’t learned their lesson and live in perpetual fear of Ethiopia then continue to do so.

    I am curious who the Patron saints are and it is obvious they are from West and Arab countries working against Ethiopia. Ethiopians are planted as secret agents to continue to dismantle the Ethiopian people. If the continuance interference keeps happening by the West or other nations against Ethiopia when we get rid of the Mafia group, then no one can be trusted these days. For instance, if we finally get rid of the TPLF regime of course unless we can do it without the interference of the West good if not then the next leader will continue to do the same thing blundering Ethiopia but this time with different strategy than the Mafia group that are controlling us now. We may never know. Some say Mengistu might have been CIA too. That is why he is still safe and sound in Zimbabwe even the Mafia group are not demanding for ICC to bring Mengistu to justice (the pot calling the kettle black). But then they shout about Mengistu’s ill behavior to us.

    It is true Isayas and Meles survival is only through these advisers who want ill wish for Ethiopia the country will not be safe. It is good to keep our watch who is behind Isayas and Meles trying to destory both countries and oust them and embarass them to the world. I am sure the Saint Patrons are now in the process of talking with OLF and ONLF as well as all of the peaceful Opposition groups such as G7, Medrek, etc. So who can we trust if those leaders are only to answer to outsiders that keeps dismantling Ethiopia? It is must if it is Ethiopia’s demise at least let it be with rejecting their agenda and die in unison. I hope those leaders learn their lesson. Nothing comes out good from advise of outside.

    Isayas is a tyrant, Meles is a “friendly tyrant” both denied freedom their people, their only difference is their relationship with the WEST. Meles is a loyal servant while Isayas still trying to be independent but for how long. Whether we like it or not we should try to balance the interest of our country and people with that of global relations.

    መልካሙ አመሰግናለሁ ለመልስህ
    ጥያቄው ይህንን ካፒታሊዝም ስርዓተ ማህበር በድብቅ የሚመሩት ቡድኖች አሉ የሉም ነው?
    የስርዓቱ ባህርይ ይታወቃል ግን የካፒታሊዝም መፈክር የማይከተሉ ክስተቶች በአሁኑ ሰዓት እያየን ነው
    ድሮም አልነበረም ለማለት አይደለም በግላጭ ሆነ ለማለት ነው

    1.በግሪክ ጣሊያን አሁን ደግሞ ስፔይን ያለ ምርጫ መሪዎች አዲስ መሪዎች ሥልጣን እንዲወጡ እየተደረገ ነው
    ይህ ስረዓቱ የሚለፍፍለትን የሚኮራበትን ስልጣን በምርጫ ሳጥን ይወሰናል የሚለውን ቃል ሽሮ እይሰራ ነው
    2. ባንኮች እንደማንኛውም ንግድ ድርጅት ሲከሰሩ መወደቅ ሲገባቸው ከሕዝብ ካዝና በግድ ገንዘብ ተሰጥአቸው ይሰራሉ
    ጥያቄው ባንኮቹ የማን ናቸው?

    ሁለቱንም ነጥብ ያነሳሁት የካፒታሊዝም መፈክሮች የምንላቸው ማለት ገበያ መርህና ስልጣን በምርጫ ሳጥን እነማን ሻራቸው?

    ታዲያ ግሪክ ጣሊያን የመሳሰሉት የልማት መንግስት ሆኑ ማለት ነው?

    ውድ የዚህ ዜና መልእክቱ ይገለፅ፡፡
    ጥያቄው ይህንን ካፒታሊዝም ስርዓተ ማህበር በድብቅ የሚመሩት ቡድኖች አሉ የሉም ነው?
    ለዚህ ጥያቄህ ቀጥተኛ መልስ ለመስጠት በጣም ይከብዳል፡፡ስለዚህም ሰዎች ላይ ከማተኮር ይልቅ ሰፋና ጠለቅ አድርገን በዋናነት ሲስተም (System) እና አስተሳሰብ(Ideals) ላይ ብናተኩር የበለጠ ጠቃሚ ይሆናል፡፡አንድ ነገር የምነግርህ ከተለመደ አስተሳብ ወጣ ብለን ነገሮችን በተለየ መልክ ለማየት ካልቻልን የነገሮች ውስጣዊ ምንነት በስፋትና በጥልቀት በቅጡ ሊገባን አይችልም፡፡ስለዚህም ከዚህ በፊት የያዝናቸውን አስተሳሰቦች ሁሉ እንደገና በጥልቅትና በስፋት በምክንያታዊነት አስተሳሰብ ላይ በመመስረት መጠየቅና መመርመር መጀመር መቻል አለብን፡፡I mean we need proper awakening and enlightenment and have to make paradigm shift. And when we start to do so things start to reveal or uncover.በመጀመሪያ ደረጃ የተለመደውን የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲና የነፃ-ገበያ ፍልስፍናን ከዚህ አለምና አጠቃላዩ ህይወት ጋር በተያያዘ እንደ መጨረሻ ትክክለኛ እውነታ አድረገን ከመያዛችን የተሳሳተ አስተሳሰብ ይጀምራል፡፡ለምሳሌ ምርጫ በሚለው አካሄድ ብንሄድ ሁለት ነገሮችን እናገኛለን፡፡አንደኛው በህይወትህ ውስጥ የምትፈልገውን ነገር መወሰንና ማድረግ ሲሆን ሁለተኛው ደግሞ አብላጫ ድምፅ ያለው በብልጫ ተቀባይነት ያገኛል የሚል አስተሳሰብ ነው፡፡ነገር ግን የዚህ አለምና አጠቃላዩ ህይወት ውስብስብ ተጨባጭ ሁኔታ በዚህ በምርጫና በአብላጫ ድምፅ ብቻ የሚገለፅ ከቶ አይደለም፡፡በህይወታችን ውስጥ የፈለግነውን ነገር ሁሉ ማድረግ እንችላለን እንዲሁም ማድረግ ይገባናልን ብለን ብንጥይቅ መልሱ አንችልም እንዲሁም አይገባምም ነው፡፡ስለዚህም በህይወታችን ውስጥ የምንፈልገውን ብቻ ሳይሆን የሚያስፈልገንን ጭምር እንድናደረግ የዚህ አለም ሕይወት ግድ ይለናል ማለት ነው፡፡ሌላው ከምርጫ ጋር የሚያያዘው ነገር በህይወታችን ውስጥ በራሳችን ውሳኔና በምርጫችን የወሰነው ነገር የሚያመጣውን ነገር ሃላፊነት መውሰድ መቻል አለብን፡፡ስለዚህም ዲሞክራሲ ግዴታንና ሃላፊነትን ከመውሰድ ጋር የተያያዘ ነገርም ጭምር ነው፡፡እንደ ዜጋና አንደ ሰው ግዴታውንና ሃላፊነቱን በቅጡ ለመወጣት የማይችል ህብረተሰብ ስለ ዲሞክራሲ ለማውራት የሞራል ብቃት ሊኖረው አይችልም፡፡Therefore in life in this world we are here to live not only based on what we want/aspire to do/get but also based on what we must/need to do/get. Therefore, in life and in this world, we have to be disciplined to abide by the laws of nature and its life support systems and hence we are not here to do what ever we want to do under the pretext of democracy.ሌላው ሁለተኛው ስለ ምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ያለው ህፀፅ ነገር በቁጥር ብዛት የትክክለኛነትን ወይንም የአግባብነትን ሁኔታ ለመወሰን አለመቻሉ ነው፡፡አለምንና ህይወትን በቁጥር ብዛት (Quantitatively) ብቻ ሳይሆን በይዘት ጥራት(Qualitatively)ጭምር ልንመዝናትና ልንኖራት ግይ ይለናል፡፡Therefore, more votes does not mean more righteousness. While the whole populace is in quandary and wrong some few individuals can be quite enlightened and righteous. Therefore, mere majority vote can not be as such successfully to serve as the measure of the righteousness of certain idea.በቅዱስ በፅሀፍም ውስጥ ስንመጣ መንግስተ ሰማያት የሚገቡት ፃድቃን ከማይገቡት ሃጥአን በቁጥር እጅግ እጅግ በጣም ያነሱ እንደሆኑ ይነገራል፡፡ስለ ቁጥር ብዛት ካየንም በመሬት ከርሰ ምድርም ውስጥ የሸክላው አፈር ከብረት የበዛ ብረትም ከነሀስ የበዛ ነሀስም ከብር የበዛ ብርም ከወርቅ የበዛ እንደሆነ እንረዳለን፡፡ነገር ግን በብዛት ስንሄድ እጅግ ትንሹ ወርቅ ከሁሉ የበለጠ የከበረና የተወደደ ነው፡፡ስለዚህም ፈጣሪም እንኳን በቁጥር እጅግ ብልጫ ብዛት ካሉት ከማይጠቅሙት ሃጥአን ይልቅ በቁጥር ብዛት እጅግ ትንሽ በሆኑት በፃድቃን ደስ ይለዋል፡፡ስለዚህም የቁጥር ብዛት የትክክለኛነት መመዘኛ ነው የሚለው የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ አስተሳሰብ በራሱ እጅግ ጥልቅ የሆነ የአስተሳሰብ ህፀፅ ያለበት ነው፡፡ስለዚህም አሁን ባለው ተጨባጭ የአለም ሁኔታ የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ለPublic consumption ከማደናገሪያነት ያለፈ ትርጉም የለውም፡፡Therefore, democracy through mere periodic election every 4 or 5 years is just mainly for creating a comfort of public illusion and fantasy. Therefore, democracy in a society where it is not well conscious, enlightened and awakened at a grass-root level in its day to day walk of life is just a worthless staff. And even such undeserved indulgence in bogus democracy can even be the source of social and economic crisis especially in developing countries.
    Therefore in a society where it is not well enlightened and awakened at a grass-root level then well organized and enlightened powerful elitist minority groups devise such fantasy illusionary schemes of bogus democracy through mere elections in order to manipulate, maneuver, contain and control a certain society. That is why I once read such a surprising expression of such amazing scheme as follows. You can not control the system through mere elections but rather the system controls you through such mere elections. Therefore for Democracy through mere election to work properly and becomes viable tool then the social fabric of a certain society has to be some how homogeneous in that there exists some how equivalent level of psychological, social, economical, political, class consciousness and awakening at a grass-root level.
    To the contrary with out realizing this reality so many of our naive and gullible politicians and intellectuals mainly focus on such sort stereotypical bogus democracy through mere election as if it is an end goal by itself. Most of the times to the simplest case they do not even want to address the economic conditions of our society. They just fetch such Westernized concepts and ideals as it is and want to impose such ideals overnight on our society. And in fact it has not been even working as is preached and hyped.

Yes asset grab by those very few minorities who has the power and knowledge to cerate and circulate money. And that is why TPLF is creating this whole mess in this country and its peoples. The final end-game is to control decisive economic sectors and resources for the long run and to purge the rest of the society from control of real economy. The TPLFites can create and possess money as long as they are in power and hence by such irresponsible mischievous scheme they are controlling the real economy in the long run. Therefore what the inflation severely damages is the majority mass not the minorities as long as they have the source and control of money supply. Therefore Central-Banking plays such a great decisive vital role beyond our imagination in the fate of a certain society or nation. Therefore, like wise when we think globally, when a certain sovereign nation-state is deprived of creating money for its own main and decisive economic activities then it is slave or captive of other forces who create that money. The current European countries financial and economic crisis, as is shown in GREEK, IRELAND,SPAIN, PORTUGAL and others, emanates mainly from this vital point. Therefore the nature and power of money creation and its circulation is very vital.ስለዚህም ስለ ካፒታሊስት ስርዓት ስናወራ ይህንን መሰረታዊ ነገር መርሳት ለብንም፡፡ነፃ-ገበያ ማለት ሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚ እንደሆነ ለመረዳት እንችላለን፡፡ሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚ ማለት ደግሞ ከመንግስት ተፅእኖ የተላቀቀና በራሱ መንገድ በራሱ የውስጥ ሃይል እንደፈለገው የሚንቀሳቀስ ማለት ነው፡፡ሊበራል-ዲሞክራሲ ማለት ደግሞ ከዚህ ከሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚ ጋር በተያያዘ ስለ ግለሰብ ነፃነትና ዲሞክራሲ የሚያቀነቅን ቢመስልም ወይንም ቢሆንም ዋና ጥንተ ታሪኩንና ውስጡን በጥልቀት ስንመረምር ደግሞ ዋና አላማው ከሱ ቀድሞ ያለውን የሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚን ፅንሰ ሀሳብ ለመደገፍ ታስቦ የተፈጠረ ነገር ነው፡፡ስለዚህም የሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚንና ሊበራል-ዲሞክራሲን ስንገጣጥማቸው የካፒታሊዝም ዋና የኢኮኖሚና የፖለቲካ መሰረቶች ናቸው፡፡ሁለቱም የካፒታሊዝም የአንድ ሳንቲም ሁለት ገፅታዎች ናቸው፡፡ሊበራል(Liberal) በሚለው ቃል ላይ ስናተኩር ነፃ ልቅ ማለት ሲሆን ነፃነቱና ልቅነቱ ግን ለጥቂቶች ሃያላን(Minority powerful elitists groups) ፍላጎትና ጥቅም ስለሆነ በአጭሩ ሁለቱም የሊበራል-ኢኮኖሚና የሊበራል-ዲሞክራሲ ፅንሰ-ሃሳቦች በስተመጨረሻ ያለው ግባቸው የጥቂት ግለሰቦችን የመጨረሻ ግብ ማሳኪያ መንገዶች ናቸው፡፡በምእራቡ አለም እንዳለው የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ማናቸውም የፖለቲካ ተቋማት ወይንም ፓርቲዎች ፖለቲከኞች ለህዝብ ይህንን ያንን እናደርግልሃለን እያሉ ቃል በመግባት በህዝብ እንዲመረጡ ቢሆንም ስልጣን ላይ ሲወጡ ግን በዋናነት ተግባራዊ የሚያደርጉት የካፒታሊስት ስርዓቱን ነው፡፡

Therefore both democracy and free-market economy are not practiced as is exactly in theory. The theory is just delusion for the sake of confusion and public consumption to fantasize about it. Even with the theoretical concept of free-market economy then if we deeply envisage life and life support systems in this earth then it is very important to notice that this sort of modern way of life advanced by capitalism based on consumerism is not sustainable in the long run. Global warming and other environmental pollutions and disasters are mainly results of this sort of aggressive and pervasive consumerism way of life for the sake of capital money profit.
    There will come a point of time in history where we will be forced to consume not only based on what we want in life but rather mainly based on what we really need for life. As far as our conventional knowledge and wisdom is concerned then Capitalism is driven or governed with the main essence of the success of accumulation of Money-Capital. Is this after all a sane ideology? Is money our end-game in life? Therefore new way of paradigm-shift thought is being evolved and developed and in that what matters most ultimately is with regard to Life-Capital.
    Life and all life support systems in earth as our ultimate capital. All scientific and technological advancements and civilization has to be eventually scrutinized and evaluated based on the concept of capital for Life and all life support systems.
    And it is with sort of paradigm shift thought that we need to revaluate our ideals regarding democracy and free-market economy or any other ideals. Both Free-market economy and liberal democracy are bogus and mischievous manifestation or presentations of the prevailing capitalist system. The majority mass does not benefit from the ideals of both of the Free-market economy and liberal democracy.
    The pervasively governing ideals are neither Free-market economy nor liberal democracy. Power and money only governs. Power and money are two sides of the same coin in the capitalist system. When I say power, it can be in different forms ranging from military power to political authority, economic authority, wisdom, Knowledge and manipulation… any thing that can create influence and control on others. Dear የዚህ ዜና መልእክቱ ይገለፅ the recent financial, economic and social crisis globally is very evident in that neither democracy nor free-market economy are the real governing ideals of the capitalist system. In this system there is inherent mischievous manipulation and greed that benefits only the very few and to the contrary that severely harms the rest majority mass. Majority mass interest and agenda on one hand and Capitalism on the other hand are inherently and totally contradictory things.
    However, the system is some how trying to appease and contain the majority mass, the naive and gullible stereotypical intellectuals and political forces by inducing or inculcating bogus democracy through mere elections. It is this sort of worthless illusion and fantasy that is being uncovered and revealed in different forms. It was this same sort of illusion and fantasy that has been applied in our country by crafty and slick Ato Meles and TPLF who has been backed by the advice of the West. The trickle-down philosophy in capitalist system is not working either. What we happen to witness is that the rich are getting richer and richer and by the same pace to the opposite the poor are getting poorer and poorer. Money Capital is consolidating around the hands of very few elitist groups at the expense or opportunity coast of the misery and impoverishment of the majority mass. Now a days at the very moment of time in history where bogus democracy and human rights is being inculcated and hyped to this unbelievable extent to the contrary war of aggression and occupation against sovereign nations, under the disguise of different forms, is rampant at all time high.
    Can you unravel this paradox? While the rights of sovereign nations can not be respected how comes the individual rights of human beings and citizenries in those nations whose sovereignty is disregarded can be as such respected? This is such inherent contradictions of such capitalist system. Globalization in real sense it is globally organized capitalism and globally organized Capital. In the same sense of globalization of capitalism there is also a consequential globalization of misery and poverty for the majority mass. The recent global mass uprisings and wars every where are evident manifestations of the chronic systemic malfunctioning of such global capitalist system. And the systemic problem can not be fixed or changed by bogus democracy through mere elections as is implemented through stereotypical party politics. With regard to the interest of minority elitist groups the system does not have severe disadvantages but with regard to the interest of majority mass it can not be as such fixed to become a viable one and hence It requires paradigm shift.

It is more of a means and tools to achieve what we need and what we want in life. Dear brother የዚህ ዜና መልእክቱ ይገለፅ such irregularities as is seen in Greek and Italy are indeed such manifestations of the inherent natures of global capitalism in that it is not ruled or governed by democracy and free-market economic ideals as is being preached and hyped. My focus is not mainly who rules or how long and also what sort of ideology we follow but rather mainly what sort of ultimate better life as an end game can be provided in general for the peoples of this world. And it is when we mainly focus in this regard that we can come out of our quandary.
    Finally I want to tell you that Free-market economy and bogus democracy, as is inculcated and hyped by our stereotypical politicians and intellectuals are not my end-game that I aspire for. Life is by far more intricate, meaningful and purposeful than these narrow ideals and hence our social issues can not be as such fully addressed and solved by such ideals alone. We have to come out of such narrow ideals if we want to solve our deep-rooted and multifaceted problems we are entangled with as a nation so that we will come out of the vicious-circle. Since the system can not realize and provide us our illusions and fantasies by turning them in to reality and same way the system can not fix or solve its (also ours) inherent internal problems by implementing those same fantasizing and illusionary methodologies or mechanisms we expect as usual. To your surprise I am afraid that most of the opposition camp is, knowingly or unknowingly, potentially stooge servant of such malfunctioning system because the system simply inculcates or hypes bogus Democracy that catches their attention as is expected. And hence most of the politicians in the opposition camp, except being trapped in the bogus word called Democracy; they failed to deeply and widely address the intricate economical aspects of global capitalism that is encapsulated under the disguise of free-market economy. Most of the time they are trapped and disempowered under the ideals of ethnic politics and bogus democracy presented in the form of mere periodical elections. They failed to address the deep-rooted and multifaceted intricate influences and implications of the global capitalist social order that is prevailing for generations.
    They want to view governance mainly from the aspects of mere political concepts as is manifested in party politics and bogus democracy presented in the form of mere periodical elections. How about the economic aspect? We have to see both combined in the form of political-economy. The failure to envisage things in this way is the quandary of most of the politicians and intellectuals in the opposition Camp. And hence I am very much pessimistic and afraid as to what sort of better social system the opposition camp would bring to our country and its peoples after Ato Meles and TPLF is down. And in fact the emergence of EPLF and TPLF in such intricate manners is also related to this global system of Capitalist system.
    ውድ የዚህ ዜና መልእክቱ ይገለፅ I am not sure whether I am able to answer some how your vital questions fully. But it is my hope that it will help you some how.
