Ethiopia: From dictatorship to democracy By Alemayehu G Mariam

March 5th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

Mahatma Gandhi first formulated the iron law of history for dictators: “There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall – think of it, always.” Just in the past year we have seen Gandhi’s words come to pass as dictators fell like dominoes in the Arab Spring: Ben Ali in Tunisia got the boot after 24 years. Hosni Mubarak was thrown out and hauled into court after 32 years. Moamar Gadhafi in Libya was literally dragged out of the sewers, paraded in the streets and and executed with his own golden pistol. Ali Saleh ruled Yemen for 33 years and went into exile after suffering disfiguring burns and shrapnel injuries. Bashir al-Assad is running a slaughter house in Syria, and he will surely face the same fate as his brother dictators.

Sub-Sahara Africa has also seen its share of fallen dictators. Laurent Gbagbo of Cote d’Ivoire was collared holed up in his palace and turned over to the International Criminal Court to face charges of crimes against humanity. Mamadou Tandja of Niger tried to cling to power by ignoring constitutional term limits, but Niger’s military ousted him. Tandja’s principal opponent was subsequently elected president. Recently, the 85 year-old Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal tried to steal a third term in office and faced a firestorm of public protest. He ran but failed to win a majority, and now faces a runoff with the certainty of civil strife to follow should he “win”.

In January 2011, I wrote a weekly column entitled, “After the Fall of African Dictatorships” and posed three questions: “What happens to Africa after the mud walls of dictatorship come tumbling down and the palaces of illusion behind those walls vanish? Will Africa be like Humpty Dumpty (a proverbial egg) who “had a great fall” and could not be put back together by “all the king’s horses and all the king’s men”? What happens to the dictators?” I thought I had a ready an answer to the last question, though not for the first two:

When the people begin to beat their drums and circle the mud walls, Africa’s dictators will pack their bags and fly off like bats out of hell…[Some of the dictators] will hide out in the backyards of their brother dictators… [or] remain fugitives from justice … The rest will fade away into the sunset to quietly enjoy their stolen millions… The fact is that the morning after the fall of Africa’s dictators, the people will be stuck with a ransacked economy, emptied national banks, empty store shelves, torture chambers full of political prisoners and dithering and power-hungry opposition leaders jockeying for position in the middle of political chaos.

Who Could Put Ethiopia Together After the Fall?

What could happen to Ethiopia after the mud walls of dictatorship come tumbling down? Will Ethiopia have a great fall and shatter into pieces? Will Ethiopia face Libya’s fate? Egypt’s? Tunisia’s? Or will she face Syria’s fate? No one can predict with certainty, but one can be sure that Ethiopia’s destiny is not as preordained as her current rulers would like to remind us: “If Ethiopia disintegrates, so be it. It was not meant to be.”

What can be said with absolute certainty is that there is a decisive role to be played by all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia in shaping a post-dictatorship Ethiopia. Individual Ethiopians, groups, civic society and independent press institutions, pro-democracy activists, human rights advocates, political parties and grassroots organizations can come together to discuss and spearhead dialogue and debate on Ethiopia’s transition from one man, one party dictatorship to genuine multiparty democracy grounded in the rule of law. If Ethiopians are to have hope of a better future and a fair chance at fulfilling their destiny and secure the blessing of liberty for themselves and for posterity, they will have to come together, work collaboratively, discuss differences civilly, think creatively, deal with each other honestly, respectfully and forthrightly, negotiate unconditionally, bargain considerately, speak candidly, communicate openly, defend the truth fearlessly, approach their differences open-mindedly and accept the judgment of the people unquestioningly and respectfully.

The Ethiopian National Transition Council (ENTC)

Recently, a group of grassroots advocates has taken the challenge of thinking through and charting possible transitional courses for a democratic Ethiopia after the inevitable collapse of the mud walls of dictatorship in that country. The Ethiopian National Transition Council (ENTC) seeks to mobilize and engage Ethiopians from all walks of life in the dialogue and debate over how to transition Ethiopia from dictatorship to democracy. Its declared aim is to “facilitate the process of collaboration, consensus building, networking and information dissemination” to diverse stakeholders in Ethiopian society. ENTC is not affiliated with any political party nor does it have any political ambitions beyond grassroots advocacy for democratic governance and respect for basic human rights. Its ambition is to become an independent and all-inclusive collaborative forum for pro-democracy civic advocacy and activism with the agenda of helping to establish a free, democratic, peaceful and prosperous Ethiopia.

One of the individuals in the forefront of this effort is Dr. Fiseha Eshetu. Fiseha is an extraordinary young Ethiopian with a peerless record of achievement in Ethiopian higher and technical education. In 1991, he planted the seeds for what was later to become Unity University, the first and largest privately owned and fully accredited institution of higher learning in Ethiopia to be given full accreditation. In 2008, after years of fighting government regulation and fending off official efforts calculated to undermine private higher education, Fiseha sold his beloved university and went into exile. (I have extensively commented on the subject previously in my commentaries “Ethiopia: Indoctri-Nation” and “Ethiopia: Education Unbanned!”.)

Fiseha is an unlikely person to lead such an effort, or even to be so civically engaged. He openly admits that he was one of those Ethiopians who stayed away from politics because he believed business and politics do not mix well. Though he witnessed corruption, maladministration and abuse of power in Zenawi’s regime, he would hear, see or speak no evil. He says he reached a point where he “just did not care” and even “hated being Ethiopian”. But in time he was gripped with a “guilty conscience” witnessing the suffering of the people every day. He could no longer watch from the sidelines and hide behind a veil of self-serving neutrality. In the depth of despair, apathy and bitterness, he says he found strength in the “truth and his faith in God.” He says he has taken on this task of helping to transition Ethiopia from dictatorship to democracy because he believes he has a moral duty to stand up and speak up and help his countrymen and women to his “last penny”. But he readily confesses: “I would rather be in higher education training hundreds of thousands of young Ethiopians for Ethiopia’s future.”

Listening to Fiseha, one is disarmed by his gentle and obliging candor and openness. His words are plain and unguarded; and he totally lacks the calculated ambiguity of professional politicians and knavish obscurity of pundits. He speaks his mind without mincing words. His public statements echo and resonate Gandhi’s ideas about “Satyagraha” (truth force). He says, “The reason we are one hundred percent we will succeed in our efforts is based on two things. First, everything we do is based on truth. Second, we believe in God.” There is also something “Mandelan” about his outlook. He keeps repeating: “For my country, I will work with anyone to bring about democratic change in Ethiopia.” The great Nelson Mandela taught, “If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.” Fiseha says ENTC will reach out to anyone without preconditions or stipulations as long as they are willing to work and help transition Ethiopia from dictatorship to democracy. He has the faith of men on a mission: “If every Ethiopian sacrificed 1 per cent, we can bring about massive change in 6 months. We need to develop a mentality of public service.” In the end, he has begun this odyssey out of love of country, honor, duty and public service, not the morbid and joyless love of power: “We have no interest or aspirations for political power. Our wish is to help finish this transition to democracy as quickly as possible and return to our chosen professions.”

Transition From Dictatorship

The road from dictatorship to democracy in Ethiopia will be challenging but not impossible. What will the transition to democracy look like? When the mud walls of dictatorship crumble in Ethiopia and the veil of secrecy and hype is lifted, two facts will stand stark naked. First, the people will find out that their national treasury is empty and the country is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy and crushing international debt. Second, they will find out that in the absence of durable democratic institutions and procedures, they could face a period of significant political instability, tension and conflict. But to better understand the challenges of that transition — that moment in time between the end of dictatorship and the onset of democracy — one must begin with an analysis of the objective conditions in Ethiopia today.

To facilitate their grand strategy of divide and rule, Ethiopia’s current dictators have carved out the country into ethnic enclaves reminiscent of South Africa’s Bantustans. That is likely to be a source of contention. Political parties are suppressed and neutralized through arbitrary regulations or direct repression and prevented from organizing and campaigning. There will likely be jockeying for power by some. Opposition leaders are jailed, intimidated and/or bankrupted. Dissidents are persecuted as “terrorists” and their exercise of their constitutional and human rights criminalized. A sudden opening up of political space could add a layer of confusion. The rule of law is trampled as citizens are arbitrarily arrested, detained and brought before kangaroo courts for summary judgment. Torture is commonplace in the secret and regular prisons as has been documented. The call for justice will likely take precedence. There are no personal freedoms– no freedom of expression, press or association. Alternative sources of information are electronically jammed; independent newspapers are shuttered and editors and journalists jailed or exiled. Political institutions are degraded with a rubber stamp parliament, and a judicial system populated by obstuse party hacks lording over kangaroo courts. Executive power is vested in one man who exercises power without any constitutional constraints or institutional checks and balances. Transition from such a state of political affairs will require not only a tectonic shift in the structure and process of governance but also a fundamental transformation in citizens’ attitudes and the civic and political culture of the country.

Transition from Dictatorship to Democracy: It is All About the Transitional Period!

Dissolution of the dictatorship in Ethiopia does not guarantee the birth of democracy. There is no phoenix of democracy that will rise gloriously from the trash heap of dictatorship. Birthing democracy will require a lot of collaborative hard work, massive amounts of creative problem-solving and plenty of good luck and good will. A lot of heavy lifting needs to be done to propel Ethiopia from the abyss of dictatorship to the heights of democracy. It will be necessary to undertake a collective effort now to chart a clear course on how that long suffering country will emerge from decades of dictatorship, without the benefit of any viable democratic political institutions, a functional political party system, a system of civil society institutions and an independent press to kindle a democratic renaissance.

The recent history of societies that have transitioned from dictatorship to democracy demonstrates that the most important part of the transition is the transitional process itself. There is a narrow window of opportunity between the demise of the dictatorship and the emergence of the new order that has the effect of historical determinism. What happens in that window of opportunity determines whether democracy will rise from the ashes of dictatorship, or another equally virulent dictatorship rises from the ashes of the dictatorship that just ended. Simply stated, the transitional window between dictatorship to democracy is the most important element in the entire democratic process. If the transition turns out to be destructively competitive and conflict ridden because stakeholders distrust each other and are rigidly wedded to their positions, the “democracy” that will result from that will be weak, unsteady and ineffectual, if one emerges at all. If the transition is marked by genuine negotiations, bargaining and compromises, a strong and durable democracy will very likely emerge.

Ethiopia’s history offers the most compelling lessons and evidence in support of this proposition. During the U.S. brokered “transition” in 1991, Zenawi was able to masterfully short-circuit the transition process by outsmarting and outplaying the U.S. and all of the other stakeholders. Herman Cohen, the U.S. official who played the mediator role, recently gave an interview and explained, “The TPLF was at the gates of Addis. We wanted to make sure that the war ended with what we called a soft landing in Addis and there should be no destruction….We didn’t say takeover the government. We said take over Addis. We needed to have somebody takeover in Addis and then start transition toward a new governmental system.” But there was not much of a transition. Cohen added:

I opened the meeting with a statement urging the parties to work out a transition to a democratic form of government and to maintain a single economy of Ethiopia and Eritrea…After my statement, the three parties decided to continue on their own without a mediator…They repaired to a private room for their own discussions, which produced a short public statement. The statement said that a decision has been made to hold an all-parties conference in Addis Ababa no later than 1 July, at which time a transitional government would be debated and launched.

With one communique, Zenawi succeeded in hijacking the transitional process, and with lightning speed managed to consolidate his power and establish his dictatorship. That is why the transitional period is the most critical moment in the passage from dictatorship to democracy. It is vitally important to maintain unrelenting vigilance during this critical period to make sure that no one individual, group or party will have a tactical advantage to hijack the next transition to democracy.

The transitional process itself determines that type of “democracy” that will emerge. It is possible to have different types of transitions with different results, outcomes and reconfigurations in the balance of power among the stakeholders. For instance, if the transitional process is bogged down in ethnic politics, hostility and competition among the major ethnic groups, the chances for a successful democracy will likely diminish. If particular political or social groups seek to engineer another hijacking of the transitional process, the results will be catastrophic.

What does the transitional process to democracy mean? My view is simple. I begin with basic assumptions: Democracy in cannot emerge in Ethiopia by force, trickery or backroom intrigues. It cannot be dictated by one man, one party, one group, one ethnicity or one segment of society. It cannot not come through artificial and expediently formulated consensus and lip service to unity and collaboration. Democracy can be birthed in Ethiopia if and only if the transitional process from dictatorship provides all stakeholders a genuine opportunity to come together to discuss, negotiate, bargain and compromise about the future of Ethiopia. Counter-intuitive as it may sound, my view is that for the transition to democracy to be successful, what is supremely important is not the existence of broad consensus and unity among the stakeholders; rather, it is the existence of divergent interests and the ability to bring the stakeholders of these diverging interests to work through their stalemate at the negotiating table in an environment of awareness of a common destiny. In other words, when all the relevant stakeholders come together with the simple awareness and deep understanding that “we are all in the same boat. We are all rowing against a tidal wave on a sea of repression, corruption, exploitation and subjugation. In the end, we will swim or sink together.”

What is to be done before the window of transition opens and once it is opened? We have to start with the basics. What kind of “democracy” do we want? For two decades, we have been hoodwinked by a hollow but seductively phrased “revolutionary democracy”. Is a constitutional democracy desirable and timely for Ethiopia now? A constitutional democracy is based on the idea of limiting and defining the powers of government and those exercising political power. The constitution serves as the supreme law of the land and no individual or institution can breach it. Governmental authority is legitimately exercised only in accordance with the constitution and and other laws consistent with it and enforced in accordance with established procedures and in conformity with international treaty obligations. As additional safeguards against the potential of arbitrary government actions, power could be vertically divided between the central and local governments in a system of federalism (“ethnic federalism” is to genuine federalism as dictatorship is to genuine multiparty democracy). Political institutions, particularly the judiciary, will have complete independence from those exercising executive authority and will be vested with full judicial review powers. In a constitutional democracy, political parties are always at risk of losing elections (in fact, they are doomed to lose elections if they fail to listen to the people); and it is impossible for any party to win an election by 99.6 percent in a constitutional democracy. Simply stated, in a constitutional democracy government always fears the people and the people never fear their government. Is it time for constitutional democracy in Ethiopia?

Waiting for a Dictatorship to Fall?

Some are overly concerned about fixing the time when the mud walls of dictatorship in Ethiopia will come tumbling down. Neither Gadhafi, Ben Ali, Mubarak nor Saleh knew or could predict the end of their dictatorship. Even the most sophsitcated intelligence gathering operations could predict the Arab Spring. But Gandhi’s iron law of history of dictators predicts with certainty that “tyrants and murderers for a time seem invincible but in the end, they always fall – think of it, always.”

The end of dictators comes when it comes, but the facts hastening the end are plain to see, and could be extrapolated from parallel historical events elsewhere. Dictatorships are internally weak, inherently fragile and unstable. The body politics of dictatorships is poisoned by corruption and abuse of power. Unable to win hearts and minds, dictatorships maintain support by purchasing the loyalty of those from whom they seek support and use force and intimidation against their opponents. Their operating principle is total distrust, including their own supporters.

The answer to the end game of the dictatorship in Ethiopia is written plainly in the faces of the millions who are starving, the toiling peasants and day laborers, those whose lands were taken and sold for pennies to international land grabbers, the masses of young men and women who have been deprived of educational and employment opportunities, the multitudes of the homeless, the diligent businessmen and women who are victimized by paralyzing taxes, the pensioners who have lost hope in the sunset of their lives and so on. But if one were pressed to provide an answer to the question, it would be simply this: Dictatorships are doomed when citizens value their dignity above all else and join hands and stand together to defend their collective humanity. That is the singular lesson and the ultimate truth about the Arab Spring.

Guarding Against the Great Fallacy of Electoralism in a Democratic Transition

There are some who believe that the transition from dictatorship to democracy can be achieved by waving a magical wand of elections at the critical point in the demise of a dictatorship. The impulse to put all of the political eggs in the election basket and hope for the best is irresistible. Herman Cohen said that during the transition in 1991 he had accepted Zenawi’s assurances that there would be elections to sort things. But commenting on the 2005 elections, Cohen said he became publicly critical of Zenawi because the 2005 “elections were stolen, clearly stolen.” After 2005, elections in Ethiopia were not just stolen, they became the stuff of political comedy as the ruling party proclaimed: “Behold our 99.6 percent electoral victory in May 2010!” “Marvel at our democracy in 2008 in local and by-elections in which we won all but four of 3.4 million contested seats!”

ENTC: Carpe Diem! (Seize the Day!)

The idea of having individuals and groups involved in grassroots democratization efforts is heartwarming and inspiring. The idea of engaging individuals and civic groups in activism and advocacy to alleviate human suffering and to defend the defenseless, the faceless and voiceless is priceless. The idea of grassroots organizations spearheading the transition from dictatorship to democracy in Ethiopia opens up boundless opportunities. When hope itself seems hopeless and our faith in the future is swallowed by our present despair, we must replace our outrage with courage and be prepared to give 1 percent of our time and energy to the cause of transitioning Ethiopia from dictatorship to democracy.

    I say to Alemayehu talk is cheap. Unity College has worked with the Weyane for over a decade. Fissha sold his “College” at enormous profit for 68 million Birr to no other than his friend and mentor Alamudin. Now he comes here and pretends to be an opposition figure. What does Alemayehu know to enthusisticlly endorse the organization of Fisseha. Was it not the same Alemayehu who was fiercely supporting his hero, the mass murderer Mengistu, to sell his filthy book. Being verbose is not a mark of education or wisdom. His writings are mostly shallow including this one.

    Astra,
    You are fusing facts. Prof. Alemayehu was not in support of Mengistu or his book; he was defending Mengistu’s right to be heard. There is a difference. Another item is this: could you have run a university “without working with Weyane?” Finally, if you consider Prof Alemayehu’s writings ‘shallow’ then the burden of proof is on you to show us what a writing with depth looks like.

    Dear Professor,

    I have been an admirer of you for quite some time for your incessant critique of the Woyane regime. I have also observed that you never took a hard position in support of one or the other of the oppostion forces with the exception of CUD. I am saddened by your current endoresement of Fisseha’s whatever organization. Where has he been for the last 20 years when all of what he says happened in Ethiopia? Remember he sold his fortune that he acquired through all means and made a fortune our of it. I don’t care whatever name he come up with. His character of 20 years is telling enough and you shouldn’t be in the position of endorsing such organizations. As a side note, in the final analysis the Ethiopian people are the ones who make the decision of what kind of government they want to live with. In that regard they will be provided with opportunity of options by political organizations of all spectrum. Please don’t force me to lump you along with other poltical organizations at this late stage in the TPLF governement’s life.

    [astra],
    I completely agree with your view:Dr.Al is now talking smooth and fast to promote Fisiha.He even talked about the faith of Fisha and courage,pure and simple propoganda.Dr.Alemayehu does not have the interest of the vast majority of Ethiopians when he went to criticize EPRPits on behalf of Ethiopia’s Hitler Halemariam Megistu.In doing so he oppend up an old wound of the national Psyche.What is more the postion he took on this issue made it clear that he is in some way has had close ties with that dictator.

    Eventhough I am aginst the indorsment Fisha by Dr.Al;I am not aginst Fisgha’s decission to chnge his mind even at this late stage.However,Fisha need to know that Many patriotic Ethiopians have dearly paid in their life for standing up for the truth.These are the true sons of the country and engaged the enemy from the start.They did not wait A CONVINENT SEASON TO come their way,they did not live for self interest and choose to work with the represive regime contrary to their concious.

    And if the question be raised why victory to the peopoele of Ethiopia remains illusive?I answer among other things because Ethiopian intellectuals are opportunists.They will prefer seeking their own interest rather than the interest of the country. Dr.Alemayehu,as you try to tell us if Dr.Fisha is indeed a man of truth why wait all this time to make a difference in the lives of the defenseless Ethiopian poor?
    By all means Let us learn to be honest to each other;this is the only shure way that will take us to the finish line.That means Dr. Allemayehu need to know the days of the Derg era is gone for good,and that he is not obligated to indorse Dr.Fisha and his role about ENTC.Let the people make up their minds about this and other issue.

    Unity is badly needed in Diaspora opposition. No one should be excluded from this process. The opposition leaders do not seem to look eye to eye. There should be an ice breaker. Ginbot 7 and EPRP need to stop their bickering for the sake of Ethiopia and start talking. This is specially significant as OLF is joining Ethiopian opposition forces. Alemayehu is absolutely right when he say “What does the transitional process to democracy mean? My view is simple. I begin with basic assumptions: Democracy in cannot emerge in Ethiopia by force, trickery or backroom intrigues. It cannot be dictated by one man, one party, one group, one ethnicity or one segment of society.

    After reading numerous of Alemayehu’s articles, I became convinced he is an incurable idealist. As any idealist, he often does not like hard truth to get on his way. This is the hard truth Alemayehu: the transition from EPDRF’s governance to democracy is a monumental task.Why? There are no any institutions left in Ethiopia which are essential for democracy to prevail. There are no independent teacher unions, workers unions, student unions. Those existing were carved out as EPDRF imagined them to be. These type of independent institutions, which I wrote about their demise, will be highly important if the transition to be smooth. In fact, I argue there was a better chance of cultivating a democracy after the emperor was thrown of power than today. Then there were independent teachers unions. Independent worker unions. A very active student movement. Nothing of that sort exist now, Alemayehu. When in 2005 there was the hysteria in the diaspora democracy was within reach, I kept wondering why people were sure of that. Even if the party they supported won over, there was hardly any convincing evidence that democracy will soon follow. People believing a few newly elected individuals swing the whole country to democracy because they said so showed the immaturity of the followers and the leaders. I do not question Dr. Fiseha’s sincerity. I have no basis for that. But I do know Fishea will find it sooner or later that forming a democratic society is more difficult than he thinks it to be. Replacing a dictatorship automatically leads to democracy is a myth the Ethiopian diaspora has lived with for decades, but it should be corrected.

    Alem- how ridiculous could you be. What is the difference between supporting the right of a mass murderer to sell his books and supporting the mass murderer. This is a moral depravity par excellence. Alemayehu has no moral campus. He will defend Hitler or Pol Pot or the butchers of Rwanda in equal vein. He is truly despicable. His education has no value.

    Dear Asrat, NOT “sell books”; “right to be heard”. Are you saying Tsehai Publishers should have turned down Mengistu? Mengistu may be a murderer but he is still a human being. That his book is published only helps us to see where we all went wrong, where Mengistu tried to justify his deeds,etc. I stand for yours and Prof. Alemayahu’s right to be heard. I hope you do the same for me. Have a good day.

    Dear Writer the problem with you is that you only tell half truths. Your thinking and judgment regarding 3rd world rulers is based on simple stereotypical polarized black and white labeling. The world is neither a place of heavenly complete and absolute democracy nor that of doomed evil dictatorship. I agree with writer in that all the rulers he mentioned are dictators. But is it not true that super power nations like USA UK and others are also overwhelmingly and pervasively dictators globally that plays the most decisive role in every vital issues of global dominance? Who dictates the world? Is it not USA and other super powers? So can the writer and others similar explain this paradox and even which sort of dictatorship is even severely pervasive in deciding the fate of the world in general? The other problem with the writer and others similar who write same cliché things all the time is that they do not happen to understand(or understand but deliberately try to confuse and keeps quite)the global power structures from top to bottom and hence also the different power alliances created. Some few dictators do not align themselves with the interest of the West while the majority of them are stooges and client regimes who bow and align themselves with the interest of the west. Dictators like Ghadafi, Hafez Alasad, Iran (Even relatively very democratic nation among the Muslim world), Robert Mugabe, Albashir etc are indeed dictators but who are not bowing to the sole interest of the west. To the contrary take all GCC(Gulf cooperation Countries)like Saudi-Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Quatar, UAE, are all not only dictators but also sheer puppet monarchs who do not even undertake any sort of elections like is the case done and expected from other 3rd world nations. In Saudi let alone other democratic rights women are not even allowed to drive till these very days and hours. But the writer and all other similar do not say any thing about such regimes. The other thing that the writer and others similar usually overlook and confuse is the discriminatory double standards treatment these dictators receive from the West and the end-game for these dictators. Look what has happened to Ghadafi compared to what has happened to Benali, Mubarek and Salah and may be tomorrow what will happen to Havez Alasad. When dictators who are friends of the West face inevitable failure then their personal safety is maintained and a safe exit strategy is devised. But to the contrary look the tragic inhuman and dehumanizing act that has happened to Ghadafi? Even the end fate of Libya after strong heroic man Ghadafi can be balkanization or disintegration in to two or more stooge client-regime states. Is it this sort of heinous devastating plan that is being boasted and hypes as a progress of toppling dictators? The norms and standards of the West regarding 3rd world developing nations is not based on whether a certain regime and nation is dictator or democrat. It has as such nothing to do with this misleading simple stereotypical labeling and nomenclature. What matters is whether a certain regime and nation bows to the commands of the West and is subservient to its sole pervasive global political and economical interests and indeed eventually to the sole interest of chronic Global Capitalism. As far as I understand the problem with most of us is that we are totally stick with the western style bogus election democracy and are entirely living this dream and illusion of democracy. And hence all our yardsticks and norms have been totally immersed in this very narrow perspective. And even in Syria the mass has got such a tremendous lesson from the tragic end-game of Ghadafi and its tragic consequences and hence is opposing any foreign intervention in their internal affairs and are siding with the dictator Asad. Look what is happening in Bahrain and how the West has given deaf ears to it and even Saudi military intervention there. Regarding Yemen, the very event started even before Libya and then compare and contrast the response of the West compared to that of Libya and Syria. Why the case of Libya and Syria only taken to UN while that of Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain is entirely overlooked and kept quite? Dear writer and similar others I am entirely fed and sick of such polarized unbalanced black and white thinking regarding dictators that lacks far insight, wisdom and commonsense. Even such articles seemingly systematically and indirectly target at safeguarding the sole interest of the West rather than about exposing the known evils of dictatorship. Dictatorship has been through out history and it will continue likewise. For many of us who pretty well know the entire world is dominated and ruled by superpowers, and even down-to-earth by very few global capitalist elites such shouting regarding small fishes while ignoring the big sharks not only it does not make sense but also it is some how dishonesty and betrayal of self-consciousness. Being a dictator is not as such something bad thing. What rather most matters is whenever dictators dictate what are they really doing in favor of and against the mass. The end-game is not as such Mr-X comes down from power and then in place of it Mr-X comes to power. Well with out forgetting the virtues of such peaceful power exchange, then what matters most is also what is being practically done to the nation. If sheer extrovert dictators do something good for the nations while to the contrary those slick and crafty stooge democrats betray the nation and do for the main interest of foreign powers then what is the very virtues of exchange of power by mere elections then? The very tragic and disgraceful event in Libya is such an overwhelming lesson that we all Africans should take such an ample lesson from it. Will the peoples of Libya achieve and sustain that sort of Ghadafi’s time previous high standards of livelihoods, prosperity stability and peace from now on wards? Is it even good and wise to make such Fake bogus democracy in exchange for and in place of such achievements in Libya during the reign of Ghadafi that is unusual achievements in 3rd world nations? Is it not even being naïve and gullible that lacks wisdom and common sense about the very real meaning of governance? The essence of bogus democracy is such an insidious scheme and double standards game that is being played by the crafty West. When dictatorship and lack of democracy can create such a conducive ample opportunity and stability and hence can reliably sustain the interest of the West as is the case in GCC countries mentioned above then the issues of democracy in such countries is silenced and overlooked. To the contrary when there are independent nations like Libya, Iran, Iraq, Venezuela, Syria etc and who maintain their own move according to the interest of the mass and who do not bow to the interest of the West then they are demonized and alleged as belligerent rogue states. And then what ever casus-belli is formulated to achieve national as well as global legitimacy in order to wage war against such regimes in order to make regime change. While such type of pervasive global dictatorship is overlooked then what is even the very essence of only hyping and talking about nation-state local dictatorship? Ignoring the biggest monstrous sharks while unfairly focusing on small fishes? Dictators are even demonized not mainly based on the possible oppression they can inflict on their local subject populace, but mainly based on they independently dictate their internal issues with out bowing to the pressure of the west. True Independence and sovereignty of 3rd world nations is something that is intolerable among the West. The very disgraceful and tragic end-game of Ghadafi is even related to more of this sort of essence of independence rather than democracy and dictatorship. The very event in Libya is to convey the very message and discourage that any 3rd world nation and regime that does not subserviently bow to the command and interest of the West shall receive this sort of punishment and failure. While the very reality so pervasive and lurking in the background is like this why our fellow Ethiopian writers overlook this overwhelming reality and simply time and agin write the same cliché about dictators? The populace is even well aware of this such dictators as they are very obvious and to the mass. Why then our writers become some how fair and also some how write about unfair global dominance, about which the global mass is not as such well aware of, that is affecting not millions but billions? Please writers like you better stop writing same cliche we are fed up with and does not as such bring sustainable solutions to the global mass. Such approach is not even good for Ethiopia and its peoples. Such double standard approach is not even good and helpful to fight TPLF.
    Finally if the writer is already well aware of this all I write above and is doing it knowingly or deliberately and is still in preference to screaming indirectly the voice of the interest of the west then that is his right and I respect that. But similarly I have also the right to expose such unfairness of hypocrisy and double standards so prevalent. Let’s become fair honest and then stop hypocrisy and double standards!!! If we want real democracy then it is not through hypocrisy and double standards and it has to be seeking truth. More than every thing it is truth and only truth that has such an amazing tremendous power to give us liberty. Finally regarding ENTC led by Dr. Fiseha I would like to say only something as usual. We Ethiopians during the last 20 years, we have not been as such deprived of only bogus democracy as in hyped and inculcated by most of our intellectuals and politicians. You can not lose something what you do not already have it as your property. What we have had for so many centuries is our integrity and identity as an Ethiopian that is our Ethiopiwinet. What have been severely losing and endangered is with regard to Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopia. So many 3rd world nations are systematically plunged in to chaos and disintegration due the prematurely unwarranted hype and indulgence under the fantasy and illusion of Western style democracy. So I prefer any political force whose main aim is first and for most to save and maintain Ethiopia Ethiopiawinet, and Ethiopians from chaos and disintegration.
    And hence any organization who overlooks this overwhelming reality while to the contrary who makes such unwarranted and premature indulgence in bogus democracy shall not effectively and reliably save Ethiopia Ethiopiawinet, and Ethiopians from chaos and disintegration. Even dictatorship and democracy is not something that best describes the entire situation in Ethiopia as the situation is more complicated beyond such stereotypical sentiments. Most of us are not using the right and appropriate terminologies and sentiments for the conditions prevailing in Ethiopia. The foundation for we Ethiopians and Ethiopia is Ethiopiwinet not as such the unfamiliar bogus democracy. So rather than talking same cliché and hype regarding bogus democracy first save Ethiopia Ethiopiawinet, and Ethiopians from chaos and disintegration. So please let’s not lull one another by appeasing regarding democracy.
    I can say one thing regarding those who hype the issue of democracy while they disregard the critical conditions of Ethiopia Ethiopiawinet, and Ethiopians potentially heading towards chaos and disintegration. Then such forces are those who insidiously want to maintain the status quo the global capitalist system. The more our politicians indulge and emphasize about bogus democracy in a way that is incoherent to exiting realities then the more they tend to become another stooges and client-regimes for the West. And that is why most of the write are writing so many stereotypical cliché articles regarding dictatorship and democracy. They do not want to confront and expose the global reality behind all such events in 3rd world nations. Therefore my conclusion is please read and understand what is really in the hearts of the mass rather than that is in the hearts of the West. The Ethiopian ordinary poor mass Expects Ethiopia and Ethiopiawinet to be saved first and continue the normal peaceful way of life fulfilling basic needs and maintaining its Ethiopiawinet integrity as an Ethiopian not that of bogus fashionable unfamiliar democracy through election.ኢትዮጵያውያን ምሁራንና ፖለቲከኞች ሁሉ የህዝባችሁን የልብ ትርታ በቅጡ አዳምጡለት፡፡የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ የምእራቡ አለም የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ጉዳይ መቼም አስጨንቆት አያውቅም፡፡ኢትዮጵያን ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ኢትዮጵያውያንን መጀመሪያ እየመጣ ካለው አደጋ ልባም ሁኑና ታደጉ፡፡የኢትዮጵያና የኢትዮጵያውያን ችግር የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ችግር እንደሆነ ከተገቢው በላይ አታራግቡ፡፡ለባእዳን ሃይሎች ጥቅም ከመቆም ይልቅ ቅድሚያ የኢትዮጵያ የኢትዮጵያዊነትና የኢትዮጵያውያን ጥልቅ ፍቅር አክብሮትና ታማኝነት ይኑራችሁና በዚህ ስሜት አንድ ልብ ሆናችሁ ተንቀሳቀሱ፡፡ከዚህ ውጪ ግን ዲሞክራሲን እንደወረደ እንደ በቀቀን መለፍለፍ ጭራሽ በዚህ መከረኛ ዲሞክራሲ ስም ሀገርና ትውልድ ላለፉት 20 ዓመታት በረቀቀና በተቀነባበረ መንገድ እንዲጠፉ እየተደረገ ከመሆን ውጪ ያተረፈለት ሌላ ቁምነገር እንደሌለ ህዝቡ ጥንቅቆ ነው እየተረዳ ያለው፡፡ደርግ ስለ ዲሞክራሲ አንድም ቀን ተንፍሶ አያውቅም ወያኔ ግን በተቃራኒው ምኒልክ ቤተ-መንገስት ገና ሳይገባ ነበር ስለ ዲሞክራሲ መለፍለፍና መስበክ የጀመረውና ላለፉት 20 ዓመታትም ሲያደርግ የነበረው፡ደርግና ወያኔ በዚህ ሀገር ላይ ምን አይነት ጥፋትና ልማት እንዳመጡ ግን ከወሬ ይልቅ ተግባር በራሱ እየመሰከረ ነው፡፡ስለዚህም የኢትዮጵያ ህዝብ ነገሮችን ከልምድ ጠንቅቆ መረዳት እየጀመረ ነው፡፡ስለ ዲሞክራሲና ሰብዓዊ መብት የሚለፈልፉ የፖለቲካ አክቲቪሰቶችን(political Activist) ገንዘብ እየጎመ በረቀቀና በተቀነባበረ መንገድ እንደ NED እና ሌሎችንም NGO በመጠቀም የሚያሰማራው ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም እንደሆነ መረዳት ግድ የሚልበት ደረጃ ላይ ነው ያለነው፡፡ይህ ደግሞ የሚደረገው እንደኛ አይነት ታዳጊ ሀገራት ውስጥ ያሉ አገልጋይ ቅጥረኛ ባንዳ አሻንጉሊት መንግስታት ህዝብ የማይፈልጋቸው ሲሆንና የአገልግሎት ጊዜያቸውን ሲጨርሱ እንደ ማስቲካ ተጠቅሞ በሌላ ተመሳሳይ ታዛዥ አገዛዝ የውሸት የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ እያደረጉ መተካት ነው፡፡በግብፅና በቱኒሲያ እየተደረገ ያለው ይህ ነው፡፡ምናልባትም በእኛም ሀገር ውስጥ ማድረግ የሚፈለገው ይህንን ነው፡፡አቶ መለስ ከስልጣን ይወርዳሉ በቃ ከዚያ ሌላው ሃይል ሲመጣ የህዝብን ፍላጎትና ጥቅም ከማስጠበቅ ይልቅ በዋናነት የምእራቡን አለም ግሎባል ካፒታሊስት ስርዓት እንዲያገለግል ሆኖ ነው አስቀድሞ ለምርጫ ከመውጣቱ በፊት ከበስተጀርባ በረቀቀና በተቀነባበረ መንገድ የሚዘጋጀው፡፡ምስኪኑን የዋህ ህዝብ ግን ለማታለል እከሌ ወርዶ እከሌ ሰልጣን ያዘ እየተባለ ይወራል ነገር ግን ሀገርና ህዝብ በተመሳሳይ የችግር አዙሪት ውስጥ እንዲገቡ ነው የሚደረገው፡፡ስለዚህም ዛሬ በመላው አለም ያለው አጠቃላይ ዘርፈ ብዙና ጥልቀት ያለው ፍጭትና ትግል እንዲያው ፀሃፊው በነጭና በጥቁር እየሳለ አቃሎ እንደሚያወራው የአምባገነንነትና የዲሞክራሲ ጉዳይ ብቻ ሳይሆን ከበስተጀርባ በረቀቀና በተቀነባበረ መንገድ ከዚህም በላይ ያለ የመደብ ትግል ፍጭት ነው፡፡አዎ በሃብታሙ ከፍተኛው አለም አቀፍ ግሎባል የካፒታሊስት ልሂቃንና በተራው ድሃ የአለም ህዝብ መካከል ያለ ፍጭት፡፡ማን ወርዶ ማን ወጣ የሚባለው የፖለቲካ ስልጣኑ በሁለተኛ ደረጃ ያለ ነገር ነው፡፡ነገሩ ይህንን ያህል ውስብስብ ሆኖ እያለ ብዙዎቹ ፀሃፊዎች ይህንን እውነታ አይረዱትም አንዳንዶችም እየተረዱ ሆነኝ ብለው ለማድበስበስ ይፈልጋሉ፡፡ወያኔና አለቃው ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም እኮ ላለፉት 20 ዓመታት ስለ ዲሞክራሲና ነፃ-ገበያ እየሰበኩን ከበስተጀርባ በእከክልኝ ልከክልህ የጥቅም ትስስር ወያኔ ኢፈርት የተባለውን የብዙ ቢሊዮኖች ዶላር የኢኮኖሚ ኢምፓየር በእርዳታና በብድር በተገኘ ገንዘብ እየዘረፈ በረቀቀና በተቀነባበረ መንገድ ለመመስረት ችለዋል፡፡ይህ ሁሉ የሆነው ደግሞ ምሁራኖቻችንና ፖለቲከኞቻችን ዘወትር በጥራዝ-ነጠቅነት አስተሳሰብ የሚያራግቡት ነገር የተለመደውን አምባገነን ዲሞክራሲ የሚል የፖለቲካውን ጉዳይ ብቻ እንጂ ኢኮኖሚውን ጨርሶ ዘንግተውት ነበር፡፡ኢኮኖሚውን ጭራሽ በመዘንጋት ይህንን አይነት ከልክ በላይ ያለ ስለ ዲሞክራሲ እንድናራግብ እየሆነ ያለው ደግሞ ከበስተጀርባ የረቀቀና የተቀነባበረ የግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም ስልት ነው፡፡በደርግ ጊዜ እንኳን ባልታየ ሁኔታ እየተራብን ቤት አልባና መሬት አልባ እየሆንን የህዝብና የመንግስት የልማት ድርጅቶች ለኢንቨስተር ተብዬዎች ኪራይ ሰብሳቢዎች እየተቸበቸቡና የኢኮኖሚ መሰረታችን እየተናጋና እየተደመሰሰ ዛሬም ችግራችን የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ እንደሆነ በፖለቲከኞቻችንና በምሁራኖቻችን ይሰበክልናል፡፡ይህ ደግሞ በኤድስ ወይንም በካንሰር እየተጠቃ ያለን ግለሰብ በጉንፋን እንደሆነ አድርጎ የማቅረብ ያህል የከፋ ወንጀል ነው፡፡ይህ ሁሉ አካሄድና ግርግር ደግሞ ዋና አለማው በስተመጨረሻ ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝምን ለመከላከል የታሰበ የረቀቀና የተቀናበረ ሰልት ነው፡፡ታዲያ ብዙዎቹ ምሁራኖቻችንንና ፖለቲከኞቻችን ለህዝብ ቆመናል እያሉ በተቃራኒው ግን ይህንን የሚያደርጉት ለምነድን ነው?ብዙዎቹ ኢትዮጵያዊ ምሁራኖቻችንንና ፖለቲከኞቻችን ስለ ዲሞክራሲና ስለ አምባገነንነት ዘወትር የሚፅፉትን ያህል ለምንድን ነው ስለ ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም ትንፍሽ የማይሉት እረ?ስለዚህም ከውሸት ዲሞክራሲ ይልቅ ኢትዮጵያን ኢትዮጵዊነትንና ኢትዮጵያውያንን ቅድሚያ ስጥቶ ለማዳን እስከቻለ ድረስ እኔ ማንም ሃይል ማለትም እንደ መንግስቱ አይነት አምባገነንም ጭምር ዳግም ተመልሶ ቢመጣ ግድ የለኝም፡፡ህዝብን በመደዳ እያሰለፉ ኮሮጆ ውስጥ ድምፅ እንዲሰጥ ማድረግ በራሱ የመጨረሻ ግብ አይደለም፡፡ይህንን አይነት ተራ የተለመደ ተግባር ለማስፈፀም ሲባል ብቻ ሀገር በጦርነት የሚታመስበት መሰረተ ልማት የሚፈርስበት ንፁሃን ዜጎች የሚገደሉበትና የሚሰደዱበትና በስተመጨረሻም የተፈጥሮ ሃብታቸው ለዳግም የረቀቀና የተቀነባበረ የግሎባል ካፒታሊስት ስርዓት ስግብግብ ብዝበዛ የሚዘጋጀበት የ3ኛው አለም አሳፋሪና አሳዛኝ ክስተት መቆም አለበት፡፡ይህ ደግሞ ሊሆን የሚችለው ምሁራኖቻችንና ፖለቲከኞቻችን ዲሞክራሲ የሚባለውን ከወደ ምእራቡ አለም የሚናፈሰውን ቃል እንደ በቀቀን እየተቀበሉ መልሰው ማስተጋባት ሲያቆሙና በሰከነ መንገድ ልብ ገዝተው ልባም ሆነው የሚቀድመውንና የሚከተለውን በቅጡ ተረድተው አርቆ ማሰብና መንቀሳቀስ ሲጀምሩ ነው፡፡ስለዚህም የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲን የምናሰፍነው ለምእራቡ አለም ጥቅም ስንል አይደለም የራሳችን ነባራዊ ሁኔታ በሚፈቅደው ሁኔታ ውስጥ ሆነን ነው፡፡ቅድሚያ ኢትዮጵያን ኢትዮጵያዊነትንና ኢትዮጵያውያንን ማዳን!!!እያወራነው ያለነው ዲሞክራሲ ይህ ከሌለ ወጋ የሌለውና የኢትዮጵያዊነትን የመንፈስ አንድነት በተዘዋዋሪ በማጨለም እራስን የማዳከሚያና በስተመጨረሻም የመበታተኛ ወጥመድ ነው የሚሆነው፡፡አሁን ባለው የኢትዮጵያ ተጨባጭ ሁኔታ ዋናው አትኩሮት የሚገባው ነገር የምርጫ ዲሞክራሲ ተደርጎ ማን ስልጣን ላይ ይውጣ ከሚለው ይልቅ ኢትዮጵያንና ኢትዮጵያዊነትን ለማዳን ምን እናድርግ የሚለው ነው መሆን ያለበት፡፡ህዝብም ዋናው አትኩሮቱ ማን በምን መንገድ ስልጣን ላይ ወጣ ከሚለው ይልቅ ምን ተደረገ የሚለው ላይ ነው፡፡

    Alem – my name is astra. If Tshai Publishers wants to publish a book by a mass murderer and profit from it the onus is on him Let him wake up and face the music. Probably it is only you, a fierce supporter of this degenerate filth of a human being, who will “learn” anything from him. Mengistu is a coward and an alley rat who can never face the truth let alone tell it.

    I apologize about getting your name wrong Astra. I don’t see how you think we learn from our mistakes. Are not some of us complaining about Menilik or Yohannes because someone made the effort to leave us a recording of their [mis]rule? I would also take exceptions about Tsehai Publishers – probably one of few Ethiopian entities engaged in a meaningful vocation. I am sorry but you seemed to personalize the issue here. You need to look at this calmly or else you lose your rational faculty to anger. That is to say, I am not a “fierce supporter” of anybody let alone Mengistu. I am appalled that you could say that to a complete stranger [me] you just met over the Internet. Something is really, really wrong, don’t you say? Take care and thanks for allowing me to converse with you.

    Time and again the problem of our people lies in what Astra rightly stated the native depravity or our own heart. Many would like to believe that they are GOD fearing which implies Bible believing or Quran believing citizens. However, the problem lies just here; I mean we are not what we professed to be. There is a huge gap between what we pretend to be in public and what we actually are. I believe everything we have is a gift from our maker, EXCEPT OUR SINS; our corruptions are our own making. In this connection, I would not demand someone to produce something more than his/her ability. However, if we have to get together anything meaningful done to our fellow countrymen we need to amend our ways. That is I must call evil by its proper name-EVIL and not play with it. As I look back, the past few years cannot help but remember the MORALE blunder of many leaders. Take for instance former EPPF leaders, these men believed contrary to truth reason that they can work with Shabia. So much so they cannot even consider views of other Ethiopians who happened to believe the whole strategy is delusional. If this is not enough, G-7, without paying much thought was quick to follow the path EPPF once tried and miserably failed. It is always wrong to insist in the communist tactical slogan of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, even though there is no any definitive evidence to suggest that Melese and Isaias are enemies to begin with. It is always wrong to insist on unity without a principle that will hold the unity we are aspiring to attain. Always it is principle which is the Gordian knot that will solve the country’s problem. Therefore, we are short sided and lack in the area of moral rectitude, we need to amend our ways. Before anything else we need to be honest of one another before anything else. One of the reasons LORD keeps us in this life here on earth is that we might use every opportunity he brings before to REPENT and be RECOUNCILED with him. Unfortunately, many of us continue to live under the DECEPTION of Satan and his lies. Is surprise then to see our effort of the last twenty years is in vain primarily because of our lack of MORALE PRINCIPLE?

    The public has every right to expect that men who study Law to be defenders of justice and righteousness alas! We have in Dr.Almariam one who openly flouts the truth. And the LORD has to say something terrible about those of us who despise truth as such as in the following.

    1- Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Is.5:20

    2- Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Is 5:21

    3- Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Is.5:22

    4- Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him? Is.5:24

  14. aha!

    What I agree with you is fact you gave me a chance to comment upon Fisha Eshetu’s radio interview in Addis Dimitse of creating a “Ethiopian National Transitional Council” as part of your essay of “transition from dictatorship to democracy” from the perspective of prodemocracy movement, a political entity, which formed a coalition/front with the the loyalist opposition (ethnic federalist) parties, creating a mirror image of TPLF/eprdf regime with its teletafi (ethnic fedreralist) parties, with parties in OPDF/EFDF/fdre as its counterparts. All adiu about nothing but the same ethnic federalism, secessionism and totaliarinism. The way I understood, this national transitional council is non-political entitity, much in the likeness of grass root movement for human rights and movement for individual freedom, liberty and equality as a bases for a constituion, I a paraprase, not as a mere transition from dictatorship to democracy, which he did not explicetely mention as precondition to individual freedom, liberty and equality to supecede ethnic and secessionist rights by dismantling ethnic fereralism, secessionism and totalirianism and the creation of ethnic based ferated states, rather than state-based fedrated states of the original provinces by mobilizing the indivividual non-affiliated to any parties in a perhaps non-violent uprising for individual freedom, each from its own volition for being denied of that freedom, liberty and equality as Ethiopian citizen and eventually redraft a constitution amenable to individual freedom, liberty and equality in order to form a truly democratic government that rules by the consent of the goverened than the current ethnic minority or future majority ethnic rule as the current political movement is today, through a negotiations for reform rather than change of the government of ethnic fereralism, secessionism and totalirinism. A mere dictatorship as in other African countries, what prevails in Ethiopia is ethnic and secessionist policies and policis, hindering free market capitalism and democracy to establish and prevail for the silent majority of Ethiopians with private ownership of land, finaciancial banks and the telecommunication industries, not to be monopolised by TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises and cadres along with recreating “national” security, federal and miltary forces and independent branches of government and election board for sustainable democracy.

    @ቀጀላ
    Dear ቀጀላ I am some how sure that the majority of Ethiopians in the oppositions do not indeed agree with my views.You know why?They like to live the usual fantasy and illusion as they are systematically trapped by the global capitalist system of the West.And that is the main reason the entire opposition camp failed to contribute such a viable and meaningful change to the poor mass and and this nation.The other main reason they do not agree is so many want to be loyal to the global capitalist system and want to live mainly for needs of their belly than for needs of their soul.And i want to say one important thing the entire world,be it the civilized or the backward, is not as such a heaven of democracy they way we imagine and expect it in our fantasy and illusion.Our MASTERS are simply providing us this perpetual misleading fantasy and illusion of democracy in order to systematically plunder and impoverish us while we are all unaware of other vital survival issues because all make unwarranted focus on bogus democracy.It is under the disguise of the bogus democracy that even our MASTERS in collaboration with TPLF managed to ravage and weaken this historical nation to its knees.And i dare to say that as long as the opposition camp makes prior emphasis on bogus democracy rather than saving Ethiopia and Ethiopiawinet,then we shall continue in the same misery and crisis.The unwarranted and premature hype of bogus democracy is just the insidious well organized misleading tricks and schemes of global Capitalism in order to lull the naive and gullible intellectuals and politicians so that it can create havoc and lack of harmony and solidarity due to this prematurely hyped illusion and fantasy of democracy.We Ethiopians Africans and 3rd world nations need solidarity harmony,love and trust between us more than bogus democracy that has become the very source of our internal conflicts and violence.And hence when bogus and premature democracy is inculcated and hyped beyond what existing realities can support it then the insidious agenda is to make divide and rule so that the mass shall not have any sort of harmony and solidarity.Look what is happening in Libya and what will be its fate after the fall of Ghadafi.I some how hope that peoples will some how understand one day the irony behind the hyped bogus democracy.Any way i will telling the truth i feel and understand whether they accept it or not.What i am doing it is mainly for the sake of my soul not for the sake of my belly.

    You are delusional or you are suffering with some kind of white-phobi disease. You said “We Ethiopians Africans and 3rd world nations need solidarity harmony,love and trust between us more than bogus democracy that has become the very source of our internal conflicts and violence.” Can you explain how you are intending to develop harmony, love, and trust among 3rd world nation with out democracy. With your little mind, you want us to believe 3r world countries dictators and butchers like the midget Meles would bring harmony, love, and trust to their people. Sir, how come they fail to do that to date? I have news for you. You cannot cheat anyone, every single individual living in the hell these dictators created will tell you that they are the major enemies of peace. You are one of those undercover who desperately attempts to elongate the life line of the butcher Meles by detracting oppositions from aim they have, to remove the butchers from power and bring them to face justice. As I said earlier to you, your true color is showing up. The 3rd world dictators have committed untold amount of crime and brought suffering to their own people. Who cares about nameless and faceless global capitalist while the enemy is roaming freely among us.

    Furthermore, Dr. Fiseha Eshetu’s Move of creating ” Ethiopiapian national Council” has nothing to do with existing political set up as prodemocracy movement of UDJP with the subset of national objectives for unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians, where the last item refers to individual freedom, liberty and equality to have precedence over ethnic and secessionist rights; which are democracy, human rights and justice and its coalition partners having the objectives for respect ethnic rights, respect human rights, while seking for democracy and justice. These two groups of political parties have formed a coalition/front against the TPLF/eprdf regime with a subset of objectives by UDJP and ethnic agenda by the loyalist opposition (ethnic fedralists) parties, which are nothing more than counterparts to the teltafi (ethnic federalist ) parties in TPLF/eprdf regime. On grounds of ethnic fedralism, secessionism and totalirinism, these calition as well as the the teletafi parties are direct and indirect supporters of the constitution in Article 46, 39 (1) article 8, etc. which have to do with to do with ethnic and secessionist politics and/or policies built into the constitution to a divide and rule policy of self-rule and separate development of Ethiopian land mass into seven of 9 &/or eighty ethnic groups, creating ethnic fedralism, secessionism and totaliarinism as main ideologies and main operating system/the constitution hindering capitalism and democracy and denying individual freedom, liberty and equality to have precedence over ethnic and secessionist rights.

    With direct and indirect support of the parties in the coalition known as OPDF/EFDF/fdre and lately the liberation movement turning from a secessionist movemet to OFF with ethnic agenda nevertheless joining the mix of OPDF/EFDF/fdre to create a FDRE of new Ethiopia in the same tune as TPLF/eprdf ethnic minority rule.

    Since the silent majority of Ethiopians are subjected to humanitarian, economic and political crises for the last twenty years, the platforms of the above mentioned coalitions both from the standpoint of peaceful struggle as well as from the armed struggle of Ginbot 7 recesiscitating the defunct AFD into AFD2 and UDJP forming a coalition with the ethnic fedralist holding on to misconstrued ideologies of ethnic fereralism, secessionism and totalirinism, and yet campaigning/”yekillil Mengistats ikulent mebit” and seeking/negotiating for for political space do not amount to a non-violent and or/armed struggle do not resolve the humaitarian, economic and political crises inflicted on the silent majority of Ethiopian tapayers to which the elites in the diaspora are indebted to not their respective parties they belong to.

    Therefore the transition from ethnic rule to democratic rule, comes from a struggle for individual freedom, liberty and equality to the exclusion of struggle for ethnic and secessionist right. That platform is probable resides with the “Andinet Haloch” whose goals are for unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians. It is only then and there when liberation and or freedom movements and the udjp and its coalition partners with ethnic agenda coalsce around the the national agenda with its strategies there is unity created among the parties and party followers.

    What Dr.Fiseha Eshete is to rally all Ethiopians outside of any political party affiliations, representing perhaps the silent majority disaffected Ethiopians to campaign for their individual freedom trapped in autocratic, ethnocratic rule and/or ethnic dictatorship (not mere dictatorship) be it majority or minority rule through a dialogue and perhaps awareness program about the survival of Ethiopia as one nation, one flag and one language, I dare to extrapolate via “Ethiopian
    National Transitional Council (ENTC)”, I presume. There is no other step by step formula to to transition from dictatorship other to attain individual freedom. liberty and equality upon which the constitution will be based and democratic instituitons and parties are formed free of ethnic and secessionist politics with respect to individual freedom, Ethiopian nationalism, Ethiopian National interests and sovereignity under the united States of Ethiopia of the original provinces, which the Eritrean province may be a part if it wants to under a democratic rule/democracy, a rule by the people for the people and of the people by emulating the constitution of the United States.

    Girum, I do not believe anyone presents an opinion that is half-truth from ones one partisan or individual point of view. Ones idea may be copmrehensive taking the modular approach to solving the humanitarian, economic and political crises befaling the country and the silent majority of Ethiopians. Your approach from the vantage point of global and freemarket capitalism, with the help of internet communication media within each country and among countries in relation to the idea presented about transition from dictatorship to democracy, which I also challange does not address the humanitarian, economic and political crises for the silent majority in Ethiopia to-day.

    The root causes to that problem, are not global and free market capitalism, because there are not multi-national corporations, except for land lease, but national corporations of TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises expoloiting the countries resources and having a strong hold political and economic hold of the country and its silent majority and free market capitalism and democracy are not available for the silent majority of Ethiopians, except for the TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises. Even those enterprises that survive against those odds in higher eucation like Dr. Fiseha Eshete have been pushed out of the free market.

    Without discrediting your idea altogether, the main sticking ideologies for Ethiopia that free market capitalism, democracy and denying individual freedom, liberty and equality to supercede ethnic and secessionist rights are ethnic federalism secessionism and totaliarinism, built into the constitution. It is the autocratic, ethnocratic rule (minority now and majority in the future) and totalirinism that Ethiopians need to get rid of. For that to happen the teltafi (ethnic fedralist) parties and the loyalist opposition parties and liberation movements with ethnic agenda for secession and or/freedom are on the way, and the lack of independent branches of government and indepenent election board for fair and free election are on the way for smooth tranfer of power from those with ethnic agenda to those with national agenda for unity, territorial integrity, sovereignity of Ethiopia and Ethiopians, where the last item refers to individual freedom, liberty and equality. Where individual freedom takes precedence group rights become evident. I nstead of creating artificial boundries for the seven of the nine and/or 80 ethnic groups and negotiate for equal rights of the killil Mengistats, with fuzzy boundries which is a prlude to secessionism, except for the Amahara region, why not engage in non-violent uprising to freedom rather than democracy, which follows the ratification of the constitution with respect to ethnic fereralism, secessionism and totaliarinism.

    Getting back to global capitalism, as reviewed by Dr. Fekadu Bekele

    of the world economic forum has its short coming world wide in its ability for equitable wealth distribution, and the inability of the middle class to cater for their child education, etc and the increase of unemployment world wide, while I do not accept the notion that global capitalism is main cause to the humaitarian, economic and political crises in Ethiopia, instead the three pillar ideologies of ethnic fedralism, secessionism and totalirinism which hinders free market cpitalism, democracy and individual freedom, which both of you by passed in your narratives. For Ethiopia to be affected by global capitalism except in land lease, private ownership of land need to be reinstated, the telecommunication industries, and the financial makets need to be privatized, under regulation by the government.

    Furthermore, what the TPLF/eprdf regime is blamed for its inability to be steward for the national resources, long term mitigation for droughts, floods and famine and land away from the public domain and farmers in the area to foreign corporations not only by displacing farmers, but also subjecting the land and water resources to absolute degradation, a policy that had have never took place with the previous regimes including mining concessions, to say the least about rampant inflation and unemployment despite double digit growth rate.

    Dear ጉረኞች
    All the comments of Girum so far does not witness the way you want to label him.I read so many of his comments and what you say about him is absolutely contradictory.The problem with most of us is we want to hear same things again and again and are not open to new ideas.Forgetting all other trash things you said about him except the one very important comment mentioned as “Who cares about nameless and faceless global capitalist while the enemy is roaming freely among us.” then indeed that is why things get so complicated because we can not see the nameless and faceless ones while we can see those in front of us.And hence this very important comment of you,a little bit corrected in that if we think the reverse flip-flopped way then your comment even greatly supports that Girum’s view.

    Dear Alex
    You do not have to flip-flop my idea to fit Girum’s empty rhetoric, if you want to understand why I vehemently disagree with his argument. I simply asked to show us the way how you could fight globalism when you don’t even live in your country peacefully, when people are killed in doves, when a country is in the verge of disintegration, etc. etc. It is time to be pragmatic and take actions to bring the most needed change in Ethiopia. We should not live in fantasy world of fighting global capitalist which, by the way, are more humane than Dictators who are completely devoid of humanity. May be help Girum to answer the question I raised, how he thinks Dictators bring love and harmony among the people than what her calls “bogus” democracy. This is a simple techniques of detraction not intensify fighting against homegrown inhumane dictators.
    I leave you with Mohammed Ali’s quote “I ain’t got no quarrel with the Vietcong. No Vietcong ever called me Nigger” Similarly, It is only woyane who treated me subhumanly in my own country, no need for excuses.

    @ጉረኞች
    The problem with you and similar others is that you do not have such a holistic view in that you view things in separate ways and do not have an integrated view and hence you some how failed to understand the intricacy of the global political economy of Capitalism. For some one who is not so naive and gullible can clearly some how understand the intricate problems in 3rd world countries related to the remnants of the shackles of previous old Colonialism in its new form of neo-colonialism called Global capitalism as a successor. And hence denying this very reality and the pervasive negative influence, impoverishment and chaos in 3rd world countries created by global capitalism for the last 20 or 30 years in its new form of neo-liberalism applied through SAP (Structural Adjustment Programs) is like denying the reality of our country under the rule of TPLF and Ato Meles. If that is not the case why the Diaspora is time and again pledging Western countries to stop aid to Ato Meles and TPLF? Despite these all blatant destructive racist ethnic agenda, oppression and plundering then why the West still persistently supports Ato Meles and TPLF? Dear ጉረኞች none of all previous comments ever tried to cover up the evil deeds of Ato Meles and TPLF except severely exposing it with a different view of associating this evil deeds with the inherent nature of global capitalism. When so many of writers and commentators complain about aid and loan money being siphoned back to foreign banks through illicit flow back then I made the assertion that this all things are the inherent inner workings of global capitalism because capitalism is also inherently corrupt system that such things are inevitable form the beginning. Aid and loan money when provided to such corrupt and irresponsible stooge client-regimes like TPLF is from the beginning with the very aim of bribing and lulling such regimes so that they can bow and serve the interest of those Western nations who give loan and aid. Even so far, so many times I said a lot of things about TPLF and Meles. And hence what I said so far, including the recent one on this article, says a lot about who I really am and what my views are more than you want to label or ridicule me. Guys like me, who even ardently supports the intrinsic values of socialism, can not as such fall under the traps of money for the sake of my belly. It is global capitalism that is so crafty and has such an intricate network of agents who are working for it for the sake of their belly denying truths and their very consciousness. As I said so far in today’s world of pervasive global capitalism, to invoke back again the intrinsic virtues and values of socialism, it even requires a soul searching personality that has such an ample intrinsic values and virtues. Alex mentioned some interesting sentence of you saying “Who cares about nameless and faceless global capitalist while the enemy is roaming freely among us.” and he gave you such a wonderful comment up on it. Yes the main problem with most of us is that we can see the vivid overtly operating TPLF and EPLF actors who has come to power and are acting on the front stage, however we can not see those clandestine MASTERS of them who are maneuvering things on the stage behind the curtain. For so many reasons when those MASTERS want to change (or is so inevitable to change) the actors, then they do it systematically as usual and continue doing the same maneuvering. And hence when guys like ጉረኞች are trying to cover up and confuse this very reality that I am exposing it with perseverance,then may be guys like ጉረኞች are guardians and agents of the system who have a stake in it. If in free-market of capitalism we are being preached that the invisible hands of the market rectify and adjust the entropy of the free-market system then is it not logical and moral to ask who are the invisible hands behind the free-market capitalism and behind those of our DICTATORS? Why we can not see them may be because they are indeed INVISIBLE? It is even so silly and naive to simply demonize dictators alone who are just mere powerless humans like you and me unless there is system behind them that empowers and backs them. If we simply naively focus on such mere persons without taking in to account the intricate system (local as well as global) that collaborates backs and empowers them then it will lead to raise such a vital question. And this vital question is that how very few human beings can have such a tremendous power and control over millions and billions of other same human beings?And then dear ጉረኞች if your answer is like “Simply because they are DICTATORS” then I laugh at your answer. And again I want to assert that talking again and again about stereotypical cliché words like DEMOCRACY and DICTATOR, while totally ignoring the intricate system behind it, does not take us any where.
    And hence it is even high time to talk about global capitalism. By the way you also accused me of being white-phobia. No whites at all in the Anti-Capitalism OCCUPY movements? While almost all of our scholars and intellectuals are worshipers and guardians of Free-Market Economy(Liberal-Economy) and Liberal-Democracy of Global Capitalism, to the contrary so many prestigious knowledgeable white scholars and intellectuals has already long ago started severely scrutinizing and demonizing the last 20 or 30 years of chronic global capitalism. And hence how comes you associate denouncing global capitalism with that of white-phobia? Good or bad it may be in practical terms Derg was following and advancing Socialism and its virtues and values. After TPLF has come to power, then for the last 20 years we have been following and advancing Capitalism (may be mafia style Capitalism protected and helped by mafia style governance). Let alone you guy commenting in such session any lay man can sense if not understand this overwhelming reality. So why guys like you overtly and covertly try to cover-up or distract issues raised that address based on what sort of global social order has to be adopted that best fits the interest and well being of the global mass? Rather such guys like you want the mass to be misled and trapped under the usual stereotypical cliché catchwords like DEMOCRACY and DICTATOR.
    And hence in addition to the prior attention of toppling the racists and corrupt incumbent TPLF regime then it is also high time to think about as to what sort of system will come next related to global social order (Capitalism, Socialism, Hybrid).
    Those who want to insidiously cover-up this vital issue are those who are guardians and agents of global capitalism and who want to maintain the status-quo of the current global social order. We have already amply experienced and seen regarding Ato Meles and TPLF. And hence it is even high time to act rather than simply talk about the evils of Ato Meles and TPLF. What I have been doing has been even to oppose some how those Ethiopians who demonized Ato Meles and TPLF by using the usual stereotypical cliche catchwords like DEMOCRACY and DICTATOR which do not have ample power to describe and expose the very existing realities in Ethiopia. I can say confidently that so many Ethiopians are not as such demonizing and fighting Ato Meles and TPLF only for the sake of bogus democracy and because Ato Meles is just a mere dictator. So many Ethiopians are so miserable and resentful with Ato Meles and TPLF because they are evil forces (Stooges and client-regimes of foreign MASTERS) totally against the intrinsic values and virtues of Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians. And hence Ato Meles and TPLF do not have the slightest love, respect and loyalty for Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians. And that is why I strongly hate and fight TPLF and Ato Meles not because of the premature and bogus democracy that is hyped and inculcated by guys like you who have been living this illusion and fantasy of bogus democracy. Our forefather vehemently opposed and fought against colonial aggression and died at the battle of Adwa and other places and sacrificed their beloved life not due to the main motive and lust for bogus democracy but rather driven by the main motive and force of love, harmony and loyalty for Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians. TRUE or FALSE? We exited historically (bad or good it may be) for the last so many years having our own identity and integrity as Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians.Then because of bogus democracy? Today’s fashionable bogus word democracy that is being hyped and inculcated beyond what that is warranted is just because of the creation of your illusion and fantasy. And hence it is not me who is delusional but rather you who do not happen to confront and admit exiting realities and who is also living the illusion and fantasy of bogus democracy. For me bogus democracy is like an attractive cream on top of the base of the main cake. What all guys like you are doing in Ethiopian politics is like trying to put an attractive cream on non existent cake or preferring the attractive cream to the main cake by destroying the main cake.Do the Ethiopian mass need the cream or the main cake? For me Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians is the main cake is where as bogus democracy is the cream. The greatest arrogance ignorance and dishonesty ever committed by we Ethiopian intellectuals is that we prefer the cream to the main cake. However the tragedy is that, to the contrary the mass has always needed and wanted the main cake not the cream. It is so silly and ridiculous when you say that love, harmony and trust has never been achieved without bogus democracy. Bogus democracy has always been the new fashionable mode of communication language of the naïve and gullible intellectual like you and me and it has never been as such the communication language of the poor innocent mass of we Ethiopians. And that is why the opposition camp in Diaspora can not effectively communicate and become such a viable dependable power to liberate and save Ethiopia from the racist and corrupt savage bondages of Ato Meles and TPLF regime. If we want to be viable power then our communication should have to be mainly based on the intrinsic values and virtues of Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians. Usually I am not as such comfortable with the undeserved indulgence in premature hype and inculcation of bogus democracy by our politicians not because I do not support democracy but just because it is so premature, misleading and is also serving as the main source of conflict, disharmony and violence in 3rd world countries. First let’s identify and cultivate our own intrinsic vales and virtues as Ethiopians and as human beings in general. Then based upon these intrinsic vales and virtues, let’s play whatever games regarding democracy.
    So what makes you labeling me as some one who insidiously works and wants to distract the attention of toppling TPLF?I again assert that the problem of Ethiopia is not as such the issue of bogus democracy and mere dictatorship. First let’s be honest, wise and audacious in order to save Ethiopia, Ethiopiawinet and Ethiopians from the dangers posed ahead of us. Then I have not only ears but also heart to welcome the issue of democracy. Some questions for you. Is there any thing written about democracy in wholly Bible or Quran? Does democracy or faith/commitment/devotion that takes to heaven as being blessed? When the end of days comes nearby does democracy flourish or deteriorate? What do you think regarding as what is the deepest possible sense and nature of fight in this world?Between evil and good or between democrats and dictators? What is your political-Philosophy and life-Philosophy? “First Individual Me” or “First We The Mass”? Answering wisely and honestly such vital questions helps such a great deal in order to have a genuine communication among us. Otherwise simply reiterating same stereotypical cliche catch-words like DEMOCRACY and DICTATORSHIP does not as such help us any more any longer.
    Do not simply label me but honestly answer those above questions. Respectfully expecting your genuine answers on my last critical and genuine questions.

    Regards

    Dear Girum
    My friend you are deeply immersed in conspiracy theory, that is not helpful at all. Your holistic approach became so amorphous and intractable. You have been trying to connect everything under the sun and wrapped yourself in confusion. Some of the stuff you have been talking, if there is any connection at all, in the real world, they are loosely connected. If you wish, there are ways to connect the equator to society, but those connections are neither meaningful nor practical. That is why some genius came with the idea of dividing complex stuff into pieces and analyze them in tiny bits and chip away the problems little by little. That will help to stay sane in this complicated world. My friend, the Ethiopian problems could be solved only by Ethiopians under Ethiopia context. It is high time for you to come off that armchair and make your hands dirty in practical world. If you erected your tent in one of the Occupy Wall Street parks, bring them down immediately and direct your energy to help the helpless Ethiopians who are suffering under woyane injustices. They need you badly, not tomorrow after the miracle happens, but today when they are suffering!!!
    Your argument about what you called bogus democracy is not convincing. In the first place, there is no bogus democracy. Democracy is only one; and it is rooted in individual choices and decision making entitlement. What makes democracy bogus is distortion, and the distortion is created by dictators. That is the why dictators has to go out of power first in order for the individuals to enjoy the benefits of democracy. Your claimed also that it is premature to apply democracy in Ethiopia. This assertion of yours again came from misunderstanding or detachment from Ethiopian people. In fact, it is unbelievable that there are people like you who still thinks that the Ethiopian people do not understand democracy or their right to decide for themselves who can govern them and who should be held accountable. Just because the Ethiopian people are illiterate and suffer under poverty does not equal to not- knowing their god given-right. They understand their right very well but the opportunity to use their right or fight for their right is highly undermined by brutal dictators via power of the gun. That dictator is the one you need to get rid off. It is as simple as that, you do not have to go to colonial era or some remote time before it. Those time has passed, you cannot complain forever. Those questions you listed for me about quran or bible something to that effect. I am sorry, I do not subscribe to those books or to those preacher who claim that they have acquired the skill and know the way to inherit heaven to live happily forever. I do not lead my life through those books who tells the story about small bit of a nation and depicts the story of adulterers and brutal dictators of that nation as the holiest thing to do on earth to inherit the kingdom of their beloved ultimate ruler. To me, the ultimate ruler has not shown anything I could appreciate to give him credit.

    Dear ጉረኞች when you label me delusional I was honest with myself to pause for a moment and ask and explore myself somehow whether I am delusional or not. Yes sometimes it happens that we become some how delusional in life and hence what matters most is to be honest with self and to be self-conscious. In the Ethiopian political context and realm what I have been raising seems a bit delusional and I was also a bit in some sort of dilemma whether or not I have to raise such a bit odd and high profile issues. Even in some of my comments I experienced some critical critiques that are even sometimes ridiculing. However so many guys including you even failed to answer for my vital and critical questions except reiterating same cliché things that hovers around only on very well known stereotypical concepts of DICTATORSHIP and DEMOCRACY. What I have experienced is like do not ask do not say any thing about global capitalism and its global pervasive deep-rooted and multifaceted repercussions in our day to day life experience. And the more I face such ridiculing baseless critiques the more I happen to consolidate and substantiate my views. However, there are also many very farsighted guys who agree with my views and who happen to understand the issue I have been raising from different perspectives. And so the more you fail to answer my objectively posed vital and critical question then the more your allegation of me as being delusional is lot only baseless but also deliberately targeted in order to distract from figuring out the root causes behind every evil in our world.
    Following the 2008 global financial and economic crisis and chaos across the globe then so many prestigious academicians politicians and rulers have started to seriously scrutinize the nature of the global social order (Capitalism) especially that has been so pervasive in 3rd world poor nations for the last 20 or more years in its Neo-Liberal Policies through SAP(Structural Adjustment Programs).Even our ruler Ato Meles has acknowledged and somehow expressed some views regarding this prominent reality though he has no choice or interest to do the other way as long as he has been patronized and installed as stooge client-regime to advance and apply the Neo-Liberal Policies of chronic Capitalist system of the West. Mass oppression and impoverishment in 3rd world countries is not only associated to mere dictatorship alone as in the way you and others many want to depict it. It is also mainly related to the nature of global capitalist system. For you naive and gullible guys like you then Global Capitalism is only ruled by the mere attractive theoretical rhetoric of Free-Market Economy and Liberal-Democracy alone. This all global war and chaos across the globe in 3rd world nations is not only the sole attributes of Dictators alone but also the main attributes of Global capitalism. For global capitalism to have access to market and resources first it tries through lulling and bribery diplomacy through installed stooge client-regimes in symbiotic relationships, if not possible then the alternative is first gunboat diplomacy and if not possible then blatant aggression under the disguises of democracy humanitarian mission. It is denying this blatant reality that is delusional not being honest and courageous in telling this very reality.ስለዚህም ይህንን እውነታ ለማመን ካልፈለግህ አውቆ የተኛን ቢቀሰቅሱት አይሰማም ስለሆነ መብትህ ነው፡፡ከሰዎች ጋር የምታደርገው ክርክርና ውይይት እውነታን የተከተለ መሆን አለበት እንጂ እንዲያው የራስህን የግል ሃሳብ የመግለፅ ችሎታና እውቀት ተጠቅመህ እውነትን ለመካድ አትጠቀምበት፡፡እዚህ ላይ እንዲያሸንፍ እድል መስጠት ያለብን እራሱ እውነት እንጂ ከዚህ ውጪ እንዲያው ማንም አሸናፊም ሆነ ተሸናፊ ያን ያህል የለም፡፡

Only with in intra domains with in a certain nation or across inter domains between nations? If US and other super powers are so global dominant in primarily dictating the global order according to their own interest and views and are dictators across nations then what is the essence of such super powers hyping and preaching democracy with in respective nations for citizens? And what is after all the essence of adapting and adopting such democratic values by taking from such super-powers while in practice such-super powers do not respect the sovereignty of other weak nations and rather are making blatant aggression under the cover of different pretexts? If there is no democracy for such big entity called a Nation-State then what is the essence and virtues of democracy for a certain individual with in a certain nation-state whose sovereignty is deprived of? ጉረኞች do you know the very reason why individualism (I First) and its associated liberal-democracy is too much inculcated and hyped beyond what is deserved in 3rd word nations? It is such a heinous agenda in order to systematically weaken and dismantle the social value/social fabric (We first) mentality of peoples in such poor and weak nations. What makes China strong to the extent of today’s supper power status is not as such the virtues of individualism (I First) Liberal-Democracy and Liberal-Economy alone it is the socialistic nature of the peoples of china under their communist leadership. The Chinese peoples have the “We-First” strong mentality and culture and that is why they managed to overcome the bondages of previous colonialism and managed to reach to such status. Somehow liberalizing the economy in a way that can some how work closely with the global capitalist system while still perseveringly controlling the political system is the main strategy that has enabled China to reach to such status.To reach to such status China does not necessarily need implementation of electoral democracy. I tell you frankly then the Chinese communist government never hesitates to the extent of killing a certain citizen if he/she happens to create havoc under the disguise of democracy and hence becomes such serious threat to such socialistic nature of the system built and working there. Can any body think of how such westernized liberal-democracy and individualism can be implemented in countries like China were a billion peoples are living? Do you know why the west repeatedly accuses china of human rights and lack of liberal-democracy? Because it pretty well knows that such preaching of such new unfamiliar values that are inherently incoherent with the Chinese peoples cultures and conditions and hence have the greatest potential to create or ignite disharmony and lack of solidarity among the mass and hence can induce conflicts and destabilization of the nation. And that is why so many wise and courageous regimes like in China and in some other 3rd world nations resist and do not fall pray to such unfamiliar and chaotic bogus democratic values that can cerate destabilization and hence eventual disintegration. When I say disharmony and conflicts I mean it even with respect to different elites who have different interest not with respect to the docile and peaceful poor mass that is in need of good governance. Because usually the problem creators are elites of 3rd world nations who have different agenda in that some are very selfish and treacherous of own nations and hence are even willing to serve the interest of foreign powers as stooge client-regimes while to the contrary some elites are so loyal and loving their own nation and do not want to bow down for the interest of foreign powers. So the war between us is also in such perspective. And that is why some genuine dictators like Ghadafi prefer their last death rather than to succumb to such foreign pressure while to the contrary NTC that toppled Ghadafi by the main help of Western countries is the one that has bade the fate of Libya and Libyans like this.
    After the fall of Ghadafi are now Libyans indeed getting the democracy that has been hyped and inculcated? After the bloodless coup by Ghadafi that toppled puppet king Edris, Ghdafi managed to effectively unite and lead Libya for the last 42 years. Immediately after he has managed to cling to power what he did was to immediately get rid of the military base of Americans and to nationalize the oil resources so that it can mainly benefit the peoples of Libya. And it is from the very inception that is why the West has been against him and not just an incident that inadvertently happened recently as is depicted by the mainstream media. And due his strong dictatorial leadership he managed to make Libya and its peoples some how relatively prosperous and developing that enabled Libyans to lead a relatively the highest possible living standards in Africa. If Ghadafi had been corrupt and some how compliant with the prevailing global capitalist system then his end fate would not have been like this and he would have somehow get some exile opportunities as is the case like other dictators who are friends of the West. So in the eyes of you ጉረኞች and others similar then all dictators are the same that you can put them in the same basket. And hence I want to assert that there are basically mainly two types of dictators in today’s world. Some like Ghadafi are independent dictators who resist the persistent pressures of the West and who dictate their county in their own terms and interests. While to the contrary there are other so many not only dictators who want to mislead the world under the disguise of bogus democracy (Like Meles) but also sheer monarchical puppet client regimes as is he case I mentioned before in Arab GCC(Gulf Cooperation Countries) who do not pretend to implement bogus democracy through mere elections.

For example the claim and hype of developmental state and achievement of middle income status with in 20 years of TPLF governance by the incumbent is such a sheer conspiracy theory to elongate power. So tell me clearly what sort of conspiracy theory I am inculcating. Is raising the issues of global capitalism like this in the context of Ethiopia as such a conspiracy theory?ይህንን ሁሉ ከላይ ያለ ነገር የፃፍኩት ላንተ መልስ ለመስጠት ብቻ ብዬ በማሰብ ሳይሆን ይህ አይነት እኔን በተሳሳተ መልክ የመፈረጅ አካሄድህ ሌሎችንም ሊያሳስት ይችላል ብዬ ስላሰብኩኝ በዚህ አጋጣሚ ነገሮችን ግልጽ ለማድረግና እኔን በከንቱ መወንጀልህንም እንድታቆም ብዬ በማሰብ ነው፡፡ከዚህ በኋላም ሌላ እሰጥ አገባ ውስጥ መግባት አስፈላጊ አይሆንምና ሌላ አስተያየት ብትሰጥም እን ግን ከዚህ ሌላ ምላሽ ለመስጠት አልፈልግም፡፡

    ጦማርህን አንብቤዋለሁ አጠር ባለ መልኩ መልስ አሰጣለሁ:: I will respond, the latest, by the end of the week end. By that time, I imagined the thread will be pushed down to the second page. Please keep an eye on it, if you wish to know what my take is. የነገሩን ህተታ በጣም አስረዝመህ የጨረስኩት ከልብ ድካም ጋር ነው:: ሁለት ወይም ሶስት ጊዜ አንብቤ ቁም ነገሩን እንዳልረዳ አርዝማኔው አንቅፋት ሆነብኝ:: ስለዚህ መልሴ ላይ ቃል በቃል ያልከውን አየለቀምኩ መልስ መስጠት ቢቸግረኝም በተቻለኝ መጠን በትክክል አንደገባኝ ለመመለስ እሞክራለሁ:: ሁለተኛ ለማንበብ ግን ወንድሜ አልሞክረውም:: ራሴን በጣም አወዳለሁ ይቅረታ አድርግልኝ:: Re-the conspiracy theory, my intent is exactly like the definition you got from wikipedia. According to me, that fits you very well.
    In the mean time, I just want you to know that you remind me one of the funniest and I might add greatest writer in the now defunct Addis Neger newspaper, Mohammed Suleman. I don’t know if you know him. At one time, he wrote about university students sub-culture. ሰለ ጀዝቦች:: ይሄ አንደስድብ አንዳትወስደው:: አነዚህ ተማሪዋች ብዙ ያነበቡና አውቀት የሞላቸው ናቸው:: ነገር ስለማርዘምና የማይገኛኘውን አያገናኙ መፈላሰፍ ገን በጣም ይወዳሉ::
    ቸር ይግጠመን!!

    ይድረስ ለወንድሜ ግሩም:
    አንተ የለጠፍካቸውን ብዙ ጦማሮቸ አንብብያለሁ:: አንዳንድም ጥያቀዎች ጠይቀህ መመለስ ተስኖህ ዝም ማለትን መርጥህ ነበር:: አሁንም ከንባራዊ ሁኔታ የእትዮጵያ ተቃዋሚ ህይሎቸ ካቅማቸው በላይ የሆነ ትግል ዐንዲያደረጉ ተወተውታልህ:: አሁን ማነ ይሙት ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም ጋር መታገል የነሱ ስራ ነው? ለማንኛውም ለረጅም ሀተታ አጭር መልስ ከበታች ተመልከት:: ለወደፊቱ እባከህ ነገር አታርዝም:: ረጋ ብልህ አንብበወው ቂም አትያዝብኝ: ውደደኝ ልውደድሕ::

    እኔን እስከገባኝ ድረስ በመሰርቱ አንተ የሰነዘርከው ነጥቦች የተደረገው እሰጥ አገባ እናም “ለጠብ ያበቃን” ዋና ዋናዎቹ የሚከተሉት ናችው።
    1. የዲሞክራሲ አስፈላጊንት ባትክድም ነገር ግን ዲሞክረሲ የወጭ መጤ ባህል ስለሆነ አገራችን ገብቶ የሶሻል መሰርቱን ከማናጋት በሰተቀር የተረጋጋ ሰሻል ሲስተም ሊፈጥር ስላማይችል ዲሞክራሲን በኢትኦጵያ ውሰጥ ለማሰፈን መታገል ባሁኑ ወቅት አያስፈልግም።
    2. ዲክቴተርሸፕ በግሎባል ካፒታሊዝም የሚደገፍ ሰለሆነ ዲክቴተርሸፕን ከመታገል ይልቅ ግሎባል ካፒታሊዝምን እንታገል።
    3. ግሎባል ካፒታሊዘም የኢትዮጵያ ብሎም የሶሰተኛው አገሮች ዋንኛው ጠላት ስለሆነ እሱን መጀመርያ ካላጠፋን ዘላቂ ለውጥ ማምጣት ስለማንችል ትግላችንንና ጉልበታችንን እሱን ለማጥፋት እናውለው።
    4. የዲሞክራሲ ባሕልን ብሎም ግሎባል ካፒታሊዘምን ያመጣብን ደግሞ ሊበራል ዲሞክራሲ የሚባል ፍልስፍና ሰለሆነ እሱንም ቢቻል ከአለም እናጥፋው ቢያንስ አገራችን እነዳይገባ እንከላከል።

    በኔ አመለካከት እነዚህ ነጥቦች ላይ ላዩን እውንት መስልው በመታያታቸው የዋሕ ዜጎችን የሚያማልሉ መሰሪ ከመሆናቸውም በላይ ውሀ የማይቋጥሩ ደካማ፤ እኛን ሊያሳስቡን የማይገቡ ጉዳዮች ናቸው። በክፉ ጎኑ ካየነው ከወያኔ ጋር የሚደረገውን ግብግብ ላይ ውሀ ቸልሶ ቢቻላችውም ጨርሶ ለማጥፋት ከተኮለኮሉት የወያኔ ቱባ ቱባ አሽከሮች የሚሰነዘሩ፤ ታጋዮችን የሚያዘናጉ፤ አልያም ደገሞ አቅጣጫን የሚያስቀይሩ ናቸው። በበጎ ጎኑ ካየነው ደግሞ ይህንን መከራከርያ ነጥቦች የሚያራግቡት ወገኖች ከነባራዊ ሁኔታ የራቁ፤ ጥራዝ ነጠቅነት የሚያጠቃቸውና፤ ወይም አቅማቸውን የማያቁ ተላላዎች ናቸው።
    ለምሳሌ ሰለዲሞክራሲ አላስፈላጊነት ልታሳምነን ስትፈልግ የኢትኦጵያን የጥንት ነገስታት ጠቅሰሕ እነሱ እንዴት በጥሩ ሁኔታ ህዘቡን ያስተዳድሩ እንደነበር ጠቅሰሀል። በመሰረቱ ነገስታቱ አገራችን ኢትዮጵያን በመመሰረት በኩል የማይናቅ አስተዋፅኦ ቢያደርጉም በመልካም አስተዳደር ረገድ ያደረጉትን ለማወቅ ግን ታሪክ ፀሃፊዎች ባብዛኛው የፃፉት ሰለ ነገስታት ታሪክ እነጂ ሰለሶሻል ሲሰተሙ ብዙም የተፃፈ ሰሌለ የምናውቀው ውሱን ነው። ሰለዚህ ባጭሩ አፌን ሞልቼ አንተ እንደምትንግረን በእርግጠኝነት የጥንቱ አሰተዳደር አሁን ለምንመኘው መልካም አሰተዳደር መሰረት ሆኖ ያገልግላል ብሎ ለማመን ያሰቸግረኛል። በተጨማሪም በአንዳንድ የታሪክ መጽሀፍት ውሰጥ አልፎ አልፎ እንደሚታየው ግን ህዝቡ በመልካም አሰትዳደር እጦት ብዙ በደል እንደሚደርስበት ነው። ይሄ የማናየውን በደል ወደ ጎን ትተን በምናየውና በሚጨበጠው ነገሮች ላይ እንኳ ብናቶክር አገራችን ኢትዮጵያ ከሌላው አገሮች በተለይም ሊበራል ዲሞክረሲን ከሚያራምዱ አገሮች በኢኮኖሚና በስልጣኔ እጅግ በጣም ወደሗላ መቅረቷ በጥኑ አሳስቧቸው ወይም በተከሰተው የአለም ሁኔታ ተገንዝበው አርቆ የማሰብ ችሎታ የነበራቸው ነገሥታት ሥልጣኔን ቴክኖሎጂን፤ ዘመናዊ ትምህርትን ወዘተ ለማሰገባት ብዙ ጥረዋል። ይህንን ያደረጉት አለምክንያት አይደለም። እነዚሕን ካላደረጉ ሕዘቡ ከሗላቀርንት ተላቆ፤ ኑሮውን ውጣ ውረድ በቴክኖሎጂ አቃሎ በተለይም ደግሞ አገራችንን ለመቀራመት ያንዣብብን የነበረውን የጠላት ጥቃትና አደጋ ለመቋቋም ነው። ይህንን አሰፈላጊና አንገብጋቢ ተግባር አፄ ቴዎድሮስ ጀምረውት አፄ ሐይለስላሴ ብዙ ውጤት አሰመዝግበዋል። በዚህ አፄዎች በጣሉት መሰረትና የገነቡትን መሰመር ያሁኑ ትውልድ አጠናክሮ መቀጠል አቅቶት በጥራዝ ነጠቅ እወቀትና፤ በከንቱ ምኞት; የተገነባውን ያገር ኢኮኖሚ ሁሉ አፍረሶ መውጫ ቀዳዳ የጠፋበት ደረጃ ላይ ደርሰናል። ይህንንም ያመጣብን ሶሻሊዘም የሚባል የሰውን ባሀርይ የማያንፀባርቅ በከንቱ ምኞት የተዘፈቁ ጥራዝ ነጠቆች አመካይነት ነው። ይህ ሶሻሊዝም የአንድ ፓረቲ ጥቂት ግለሰቦች ሥልጣን አጠቃሎ የሚሰጥ የአገሪቱ ሀብት በሙሉ በነዚህ ጥቂት የፓርቲ ባለስልጣናት ቁጥጥር ስር አድርጎ፤ ግለሰቦችን ደግሞ የነዚህ የፓርቲ ባለስልጣናትና አባላት አሸከር የሚያደርግ የፓርቲ ዲክቴተርሺፕ ስርአት ነው። ይህ ስርአት የግለሰቦችንም ሆነ የህብረተሰብ መብት የማያከብር በመሆኑ በዜጎችና በህብረተሰቦች መካከል ግጭት እየጫረ በአፄዎች ተገንብቶ የነበረውን የኢትዮጵያዊነት ስሜት ሸርሽሮ ለማይቆይው ነገር በጎሰኝንት በተለከፉ እርጉም ሰዎች ተመንድጎ ወድቋል። ጎሰኞችም እንደ ሶሻሊስቶች ጥራዝ ነጠቆች ከመሆናቸው የተንሳ በስሜት ከመገፋት በቀር ነባራዊ ሁኔታን ማገናዘብ አይችሉም። እነዚህ ጎሰኞች ከሶሻሊሰቶች ድክመት ከመማር ይልቅ የራሳቸውን ጎሳ በበላይነት በሌላው ህብረተሰብ ላይ በመጫን የአገሪቱን ሀብት በሙሉ ጠቅለው ለአንድ ጎሳ ከዛም አልፎ ለጥቂት የጎሳ ባለስልጣናት ቁጥጥር ስር ለማዋል ደፋ ቀና ሲሉ ይውላሉ። ይሄም የማያዘልቅ ለርስ በርስ ግጭት በከፋ ሁኔታ የሚገፋፋ አሰከፊ ሰርአት ነው።
    ሊበራል ዲሞክራሲ ለነዚህ ክፉ ሰርአቶች አማራጭ ነው። በመሆኑም እሰከ ዛሬ ባለም ላይ ከተከሰቱ ሰርአቶች በከፍተኛ ደረጃ የሚሻል ነው። ይህ ሰርአት የግለሰብ ሰብአዊነት መበቱን የሚያሰከብር፤ ዜጎች በማንነታቸው ሳይሆን በሰራቸው ራሳቸውን በሀብት የሚያሳድጉበት፤ ዳኝነት አላድሎ የሚደረግበት፤ የዜጎች ለአገሪቱ ሀብት እኩል የመጠቀም መብት የሚጎናፀፉበት ብቻ ሳይሆን ባገሪቱ ውሰጥ ላሉ ማንኛወም ሰልጣን በእኩልነት ሊወዳደሩበት የሚያሰችል ሰርአት ነው። ይህም በመሆኑ አውሮፓ፤ አሜሪካ፤ ካናዳ፤ አውሰተራልያ፤ በቅርቡ ደግሞ ብዙ የእስያና የላቲን አሜሪካ አገሮች አመርቂ ውጤት ያሰመዘገቡበት ስርአት ነው። ይህንን ለምንድን ነው የምትጠላው? አንተስ ራስህ የሊበራል ዲሞክራሲ ዋንኛው ተጠቃሚ አይደለሀም? አንተ ብትከዳም እኔ አላስከዳህም። እምቢ አላሰዋሽም አልኩ። በቃ። ቻይናን ደግሞ በሞደልነት ጠቅስህል:: ወላዲት አምላክን ብይሀለሁ ቻይናን ሞዴል ለአገሬ ኢትዮጵያ አልመኝም። ምን በወጣን? እንዴ? አንተም ውሸትሕን ጀግና መስሎ ለመታየት ነው እነጂ ቻይና ሂድና ኑር ቢሉሕ ትሄዳለሕ? አትሄድም። እንደውም ቻይና እነዳትሄድ ሌላ የአሳይልም መጠየቂያ አዘጋጅተህ፤ ቻይኖች አሰረው ገርፈውኛል ብለሕ ድሮ በልጅነትሕ በጨርቅ ኳስ ሰትጫወት ወድቀህ የፍጠርከውን ጠባሳ እያሳየህ ይህንን አንደላቆ የሚያኖርህን በሊበራል ዲሞክራሲ የተገነባውን አገር ትለምናለህ። አንተ ብትክድ እኔ አላሰክድህም። እርምሀን አውጣ።
