Meles and the Deconstruction of Ethiopia Messay Kebede

March 20th, 2012 Print Print Email Email

N. B.: My customary readers may wonder why my political writings increasingly focus on psychological analyses to the detriment of socioeconomic forces. Is it because in my mind psychological factors prevail over socioeconomic conditions? The answer is no unless certain circumstances lend importance to the personality of political leaders.

Such is the case when state power falls in the hands of megalomaniac dictators. Only objective socioeconomic and political conditions can create situations that call for a specific rule. However, depending on the personality of leaders, the direction of change imparted by objective factors can be diverted toward idiosyncratic goals. Especially, to the extent that revolutions and wars shatter established institutions, they have the nasty habit of favoring the rise to power of megalomaniac individuals. Once in power, such personalities hijack the social movement and use it to strengthen their power.

Their absolute control of state power means that political and economic decisions are taken and implemented with the sole view of satisfying their idiosyncratic goals, chiefly their determination to retain the control of absolute power by all means. In this condition, the understanding of the psyche of dictators is crucial for political struggle. My assumption is that this is exactly the case with Meles’s rule of Ethiopia.
Many Ethiopians still wonder why Meles is uncontrollably seized with the desire to commit actions whose sole purpose is to offend Ethiopians or cripple the country. Among such actions are his routine assaults on Ethiopian nationalism together with his promotion of ethnic nationalisms, the ceding of Ethiopian territories to Sudan, the persistent determination to humiliate opposition leaders, an educational policy that values quantity and politicization over skill and professionalism, and the policy of leasing fertile lands to foreign firms at the expense of Ethiopian peasants and the national progress of agriculture. I will cite as yet another recent manifestation of his hatred of Ethiopia his support––assuming that he is not the initiator—to the decision not to erect a statue to Haile Selassie for his decisive contribution to the creation of African unity.

There is no doubt that some of the mentioned measures are designed to protect Meles’s power. For instance, leasing land to foreign firms provides him with the money he needs to keep his repressive apparatus satisfied, just as the ceding of territories to Sudan buys the friendship of a strategically important neighbor. Likewise, the promotion of ethnic division is how he implements the divide-and-rule strategy characteristic of all dictatorial regimes. However, these measures do not look very rational in that they further aggravate an already brewing discontent, and so can contribute to a brutal end of his regime.

In fact, the adoption of a nationalist position would have been a better way to protect Meles’s power. History teaches us that, to say in power, dictators utilize the divide-and-rule strategy in combination with a nationalist zeal, which gives them a popular support, even if it does not last. Given the resentment that it generates, one wonders whether the method of shielding power by ceding territories and leasing land to foreign companies is a smart choice.

On the other hand, there are acts not connected with power calculus that Meles commits just for the sheer purpose of upsetting Ethiopians. Thus, dismantling opposition forces is certainly a way of fighting for his power, but not the determination to humiliate their leaders by the imposition of degrading requests. Similarly, the characterization of the Ethiopian flag as a trash does not help him strengthen his power. Nor are his numerous demeaning statements, as when he said that the failure of his policy would mean that Ethiopia was not meant to be. His obvious complicity in the decision to deny Haile Selassie the honor of a statue is just a recent example of actions whose sole purpose is to offend Ethiopians.

All this brings us to the enigmatic question of knowing why Meles does not rule the country in the accustomed way of dictators, that is, as extremely jealous of his power, but also as an ardent defender of the national interest, even if his definition of national interest favors his own dictatorship. As already suggested, normal dictators want to be loved by the people they rule so as to give their power a popular basis. Given Meles’s obsession with power, how is then one to understand the undermining of his own popularity by such senseless anti-Ethiopian deeds?

One way of resolving the dilemma of a dictator who undermines his own popularity is to suggest that Meles has a deep hatred of Ethiopia and of whatever promotes the interests and well-being of its people. In a previous article posted on various Ethiopian websites and titled “Meles’s Shame and the Dead-End of Hatred,” I have tried to decipher the enigma of a dictator set on unpopularity by suggesting that the shame of his family’s close collaboration with the Italian colonial forces had evolved very early into a hatred of Ethiopia. Despising and damaging Ethiopia, notably through the diabolization of the architect of modern Ethiopia, namely, the Amhara elite, is his manner of removing the shame, the assumption being that there is really no betrayal if what is supposedly betrayed is worthless to begin with.

If Meles has such a deep hatred of Ethiopia, the question that comes to mind is why he is struggling to consolidate his power instead of simply destroying Ethiopia, for instance by encouraging secessionist groups and triggering bloody ethnic conflicts. Though my previous article raised the issue, it did not directly deal with it for the sake of brevity. The time has come to resolve the puzzle of Meles hanging to the state power of a country that he despises and even scoring some accomplishments, which of course either remain superficial or come with heavy social costs.
Undoubtedly, the key to the puzzle is Meles’s craving for power. Not only is he obsessed with power, but also his hatred finds no better way to vent itself than to keep Ethiopia on life support through his divisive and weakening policy. Indeed, what is more gratifying for a soul tormented with hatred than to prolong the agony of the object of his hatred as long as possible? In other words, his love for power occasionally overrides his hatred while also providing an outlet for it.
Here a restriction should be introduced, which emanates from the very contradictions of a tormented soul. As much as Meles wants to demean and hurt Ethiopia, his passion for power has grown into megalomania, mostly as a result of an easy victory against all his opponents. To his craving for power is now added the belief in his own grandeur and unique destiny. Yes, he hates Ethiopia, but he is also possessed with power and burns with the dream of becoming a great ruler, especially in the eyes of Westerners. So that, hatred and megalomania combine to inspire a deconstructive/constructive political project.
Let there be no misunderstanding. Meles is as committed as ever not to do anything that seems to promote Ethiopia because of the painful consequences on him. He has accordingly decided to erase Ethiopia as we know her and recreate another Ethiopia, this time of his own design. The deconstructive and constructive project thus solves, it is true temporarily, the contradiction between his hatred for the country and his love for power and megalomania: deconstruction satisfies his hatred; construction his megalomania. In effect, he is now promoting a project called Ethiopian renaissance, which he couples with the ideology of developmental state considered as the proven instrument to achieve prosperity.

What we need to understand here is that when Meles exhorts Ethiopians to “achieve the vision for Ethiopia’s Renaissance,” he means the Ethiopia a la Meles, that is, Ethiopia made suitable for his absolute rule and for the pillage by his cronies and party followers. The design excludes all those who fight for a democratic Ethiopia in which people endowed with real rights decide about what is best for them and achieve national unity as equal and free both in their individual capacities and ethnic belonging. Instead of Ethiopians realizing integrative unity and exercising sovereignty, Meles’s project sees them as puppets of a deconstructive project inspired by hatred and megalomania.

To clarify further Meles’s project of Ethiopian Renaissance, we can add that it is tantamount to a child playing with a new toy. Unfortunately, the parallel is misleading for even a child cares for his/her toy: he/she may mistreat the toy, but he/she will not allow others to do so. A better comparison would be land clearing by which you bulldoze whatever has grown naturally for the purpose of planting seeds of your own choice. We know the danger of land clearing when it ignores the conditions of the soil and the well-being of the local population, especially when the land is given to foreign interests. What used to be a fertile land can become barren if such cares are missing.
Since Ethiopia is the object of a resentful policy, Meles cannot provide the care necessary to transform Ethiopia into a flourishing and integrating country. Even if we assume that he is determined to eradicate poverty, the assumption remains far-fetched, not to say utterly unlikely, because whatever his dream of greatness leads him to want is immediately defeated by a forceful resurgence of his hatred. Thus, there is a constant oscillation between hatred and the dream of grandeur: no sooner is a project devised than it is spoiled by the hostility of hatred.

What is more, Meles does not have the people necessary to implement any serious policy of development. In order to strengthen his dictatorial power, he has surrounded himself with yes men, who are irremediably incompetent and profusely self-serving. He has no choice but to reward them by closing his eyes to the widespread use of illegal means of enrichment. Also, the failure of his economic policy together with his tendency to conspire against the nation can only intensify anger, thereby making him unable to mobilize people for any significant national project.

This is to say that the clearing of Ethiopia increasingly looks like a land devastated by the effect of toxic chemicals administered by a spiteful agronomist. Repressive means can help Meles stay in power for a while, but his attempt to reduce Ethiopia to something fashionable at will for the gratification of his tortured mind will never see the light of day. He will remain stuck with repressive methods because his hatred and his hunger for unlimited power always end up by defeating his dream of grandeur.

    Dear Dawi how are you?
    We have been so far arguing (indeed decently which I appreciate and respect) about our country and our world global situations. And when I raise the issue of global capitalism, I was even some how mocked and ridiculed (it seems like who are you to open your mouth on this divine social order)
    and labeled as delusional by guys like ጉረኞች.Dear Dawi I am honest with myself somehow and hence whenever I raise such high profile issues regarding global capitalism and whenever I happen to encounter such mockery in response to this, yes indeed I some times feel as if I am delusional. But in reality my contention and perseverance in my move in this regard is not as such delusional as exiting realities greatly support me. Any system has its own life time and hence is not eternal and hence Global Capitalism too and hence I do not understand why we even as such want to worship it. Yes we have to be pragmatic in life and in that sense I do not as such dare to ridicule invalidate and adulterate global capitalism beyond what existing realties can support me. The existing realities have become so paradoxical in that sometimes it seems like you can not live with them and you can not live without them. And for me with the current prevailing pervasive global capitalism, “we can live without it” is becoming more rational and moral and even from time to time more pragmatic than “we can not live without it”. But let’s think critically and ask in what paradigm setup and domain we assume something is right or wrong? Well if some one gives you something ‘good’ in a way that you are entirely dependent on it then inevitably you start to worship it.Look such global wars conflicts aggression under different disguises migration environmental plundering or despoiling social value and moral degradation and the modern barbaric instinctive like avarice of humanity. And these all things can not be juts covered up by the attractive and misleading sugar coated rhetoric of global capitalism as is presented in the form of Liberal-democracy and free-market (Liberal-Economy).Let me tell you and others the very clear and precise reason why the mere Liberal-democracy and free-market (Liberal-Economy).
    1)The entire resources on earth are not as such limitless and hence are deteriorating and despoiling and hence we can not do whatever we want based on our mere individual desires and well in this case what we have to move is in a way we really need based on our evolutionary survival issues. And indeed leaving the attractive and misleading sugar coated rhetoric of global capitalism as is presented in the form of Liberal-democracy and free-market (Liberal-Economy) for those naïve and gullible who fantasize about it, well indeed the governing meta rule of Global Capitalism is as follows.
    A)The fittest individual(Atomic-self),under any cost of others wins and survives. This is back again to Darwinism evolutionary barbarism. No collective security and social value has a proper place in it. And that is why we see aggression, wars, conflicts and occupation and migration across the globe especially in 3rd world nations.
    B) All resources on earth are and can be commercial items and can be liquidated for usual game of business exchange for the sake of Capital Money accumulation through money-sequencing. That means I and you can be and are also commercial items in this regard.
    And in this case the irony behind Liberal (in both Liberal-Economy and Liberal-Democracy) is for those who are the fittest, crafty in manipulating and maneuvering the world and state power. And that is why while wake poor powerless billions are unfairly severely impoverished to malnutrition, disease, migration and poor shelter then very few are billionaires who lead unbelievable luxurious life at the expense of such misery.
    3) Liberal Democracy in global Capitalism is just illusion and fantasy. We better know that global capitalism usually gives the majority mass the emotional fantasy and illusion of liberty fulfillment and greatness while in reality things are not like that. Yes even in my view I myself do not as such associate the intrinsic virtues of righteousness, justice, compassion and fairness with mere electoral quantitative approach in that such intrinsic virtues or values are regardless of mere electoral democracy. And hence numerically 150 peoples are more than 100 peoples does not always lead to the conclusion that the idea proposed by 150 peoples is better righteous than those of 100 peoples. And in this case mere Electoral Liberal Democracy can not always work.
    And that is why there is a saying that the System (The capitalist system and the elite capitalists) controls you (the mass) through election but you can not control the system. Any way for me I do not have a problem with elites(as long as elites overtly or covertly exist for ever) and as long as they are legitimate and righteous divine elites who have the deepest sense of humanity who love and respect the ordinary mass. My Problem is with those of evil elites who have the greatest possible avarice and cruelty. And that is why electoral democracy is implemented for the mere reason of the provision of the fantasy and illusion of democracy for the mass while in reality things are done behind the curtain in closed doors the other way round opposite to the way we usually expect. Let me tell you that those elites who maneuver the political scene behind the curtain and also those politicians who serve them pretty know that what they preach openly for the public is not coherent with what they believe in themselves. Therefore my contention is that global capitalism has pragmatically worked so far like as we know, see and experience it like this but it is reaching its climax of ‘viable’ functionality in a ‘sane’ manner as a global social order.
    But from now onwards it can not and must not continue with such aggravating global chaos that is very destructive to the entire human race. The problem with most of us is that we have been perpetually preached, indoctrinated and brainwashed (like Chicago-Boys of Neo-Liberalism)in all the academia, the mainstream media, the entertainment industry and every other occasions about the divinity of this global social order. To the contrary covertly in a subtle way or overtly we are perpetually preached and brainwashed by demonizing Socialism and its intrinsic virtues and values.
    I am very confused and amazed as to the real reason behind demonizing Socialism by many of us. No one as such able to give me ample convincing rational as well as moral reason to demonize Socialism. And this whole perverted cliché sentiment about socialism is very evident in what platform the academia and the intellectuals are staged in. Even the most amazing (even tragic also) thing that I happen to experience is that so many Ethiopian intellectuals are blindly labeling TPLF as Socialist and Revolutionary Democrat by associating this labeling to bad things of Socialism because TPLF calls itself Revolutionary Democrat. Why they want the intrinsic good virtues of socialism to be associated with bad things and also the bad things done by TPLF. Why they fail and do not want to associate Global Capitalism and its characters with TPLF? So like “አህያውን ፈርቶ ዳውላውን እንዲሉ” while indeed it is the West that greatly has been helping TPLF from the very beginning until now, then why they make such a perverted and misleading association of TPLF with the once 20 years back failed system of Socialism rather than the currently pervasively functioning prevailing system of Global capitalism? TPLF “CLAIMED” as Revolutionary Democrat for the two reasons.
    1)Having the essence of Socialistic Revolution it can agitate the poor mass of Tigreans and Ethiopians and whose social class and Social status and social value is more of Socialistic rather than capitalistic or Liberal-Democracy and in this sentiment camouflaging this pro-mass identity was such wise and crafty(and indeed logical) nature of TPLF.
    2) Because the West has been providing ample support for TPLF, then TPLF has to adopt the policies of Global Capitalism in its form of Liberal-Democracy and Free-Market. And as long as TPLF implements the Free-Market policy it is not as such the concern and business of the West regarding the issue of Democracy. And hence the crafty TPLF can camouflage and pretend the essence of Democracy through mere bogus elections and some free-press and also some liberty for the mass especially the youth and women feminism to create the illusions and fantasy of democracy. So it has to use the word Democracy in the acronym of Revolutionary-Democracy so that it is possible to interface and adapt with the values of the West. However the essences behind in both words (Revolutionary=Pro-Mass and socialistic, Democracy=Liberal Democracy of the West) are so contradictory and are so bogus pretending camouflages to mislead the naïve and gullible ones. And hence in reality what TPLF has been advancing and implementing for the last 20 years and in continuum has been the Neo-Liberal policies of Global Capitalism of the West. And that is why we see pervasive mass impoverishment, and to the contrary there is pervasive corruption that privileges the very few parasitic (TPLF members Through EFFORT) new emerging capitalist classes that works incoherent with global capitalism. Why perpetual sell off governmental enterprises to private investors that give fair economic services to the poor mass? Is it after all the essence of Socialism Revolutionary Democracy and Developmental state? Why such amazing exaggerated polarization in wealth between the poor mass the very few? Is it after all the essence of Socialism or Revolutionary Democracy and Developmental state? Now I dare to say that most of those who label misleadingly TPLF as Socialism or Revolutionary Democracy (by associating evil essence and attributes for socialism) are those who are working for Anglo-American Neo-Liberal Global Capitalism. Wherever they associate such evil attributes of socialism to TPLF their deepest sense of intention is that they are giving unbendable and unshakable righteousness and loyalty to Global Capitalism. Such forces usually hype and talk about the severe impoverishment of the mass and on the other hand they demonize socialism. This is the paradox and quandary of our time. And doing this all paradoxical deliberately devised contradictions is then equivalent to Conspiracy theory.
    Believe it or not Socialism will revive again as it is inevitable. The entire intricate conspiracy is to thwart this movement towards socialism and that is why even it is preferred to blame all the failures and evils of Global capitalism and its neo-liberal policies on single persons like Ato Meles. Is the essence of blaming just because they understand that he is the one who applied it? No!!! But rather they blame TPLF because they ‘believe’ that it is Revolutionary Democrat and the failure is due to the essence of revolutionary Democracy. So funny and amazing!!! So it is preferably better to make TPLF a complete scapegoat rather than confronting the evils of Global Capitalism. This is absolute intellectual conspiracy, ignorance, dishonesty and arrogance tragically committed in Ethiopian politics!!! Therefore rather than focusing entirely on the nature and behavior of one person(Which is helpful till some extent) why not we also work on the inherent nature of Global Capitalism and its pervasive effects in this world as a global social order and system. Even so many knowledgeable independent soul-searching and very human free-thinker scholars even from the west are perpetually writing on Global Capitalism. But to the contrary so many of ours are still stuck on Free-market and Liberal Democracy of Global Capitalism of the West and even tragically still today are stuck in demonizing Socialism where it is almost non-existence in practice though it is so existent in essence in the minds and hearts of human loving individuals. So time to make a soul searching task and paradigm-shift for our intellectuals and scholars. Before we blindly inculcate the values of Global Capitalism first we have to deeply and widely understand the social fabric and social moral values of our country and other similar 3rd world nations. And hence for me Socialism is not only my intellectual social order and political preference but also the inherent nature of Ethiopian Society. So it is better we apply some rectified good values of Capitalism on the preexisting inherent social foundation of our society that is Socialism. We can not and must not as such impose incoherent western values overnight over our society. We talk a lot about pervasive corruption that is applied under the disguise of free-market economy, but is it not true that corruption is also the inherent attributes of Capitalism? Why we use euphemism to cover-up the reality? Albert Einstein once said that you can not solve a certain problem by the very methods or mechanism that has already caused the problem in the first place. And that is why we need to seriously scrutinize the meta governing system of global capitalism itself rather than hyping the same cliché of democracy and dictatorship that are subordinate and insignificant when compared to this primary and very vital global social order.

    God bless Ethiopia !!!

    What I found out about this article, theisis, the argumentative position, does not much the conclusion: “Meles does not have the people to implement any serious policy of development”. This does not address the humanitarian, economic, political and lately according to literature review presented by Professor Alemayehu G. Mariam about the environmental crisis, as the fourth dimension to crises in Ethiopia.

    Girum,the words that carry your thoughts scatters in many directions and so it is impossible to make sense of you.I think you are delberately doing just that- to confuse ,misdirect the energy of some in here.YOU ARE AGISNT MARKET ECONOMY and liberal democracy on the ground that it impowers the strong ,the gifted and,talented.So you thought of it a product of Darawinsim. Every system that man devised comes to us with strings attached with it.Globalism has its own strings-it hs pro and con side.It connects people, meaning it gives greater controle for the planners and has a tendecy to disfranchise the poor and therural citzenery. Worst still is to your proposed plan of Socialism .To begin with socialism is a Godless system.It comes with its own destinctive fueatures.Socialism makes the government the national idol or mini god that demads worshiped ,must tell you even when to go to the bathrooms.You got that righ.Many times before you try to quote the Bible in here.Do you see contradicting yourself in thisby advocating godless socialism .For your info. It was the LORD himself that dismanteld communism and Socialism in each nation,because socilist system wont allow its citizens to belive in their maker. it is the LORD’s will that each one of us first believe in him,and then have faith that he who made you will also provide the means for basic necessities.One may ask what about the weak and the sick.The Church that walks in faith and love will take care of this aspect of the community duity.So aspire,if you want to your socialism but only for yourself.

    Since I started picking on you, I couldn’t resist to let go of this thread. I’ve inserted my comments right after your statements.
    Let’s agree that there is no perfect society. No body said that democratic countries are perfect society but are a better choice when compared to others.

    “……governing meta rule of Global Capitalism is as follows.
    A)The fittest individual(Atomic-self),under any cost of others wins and survives. This is back again to Darwinism evolutionary barbarism.” One needs to know individual is the unit of existence. The fundamental principle guiding those who believe on individualism is the inalienable right of human being namely, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. These are universal rights of human being that should not be infringed or taken away by another human being. These rights are accepted by both sides or by those who recognize the world in diametrically opposite ways. Those who believe the world and life within it are created by supreme power and the life should be governed by the laws and rules of the creator still believe that these rights are given by supreme power to all human beings. And those who describe the world on the basis evolutionary theory associate these inalienable rights with inherent characteristics of biological organisms, the gene itself. Gene provides life (whole individual), it should be free to express itself (make individual characteristics), and individual should lead its own life the way it wants (pursuit of happiness), as long as the individual do not interfere with other individual right.

    “No collective security and social value has a proper place in it.” These values do exist and highly respected by many liberal democratic countries much better than other countries which are not following liberal democracy. Witness the welfare system in these countries that provide adequate support to poor, elderly, disabled, or provides all sorts of safetynet to societal vagaries.

But, the liberal economy fairs better than other society.

And in this case mere Electoral Liberal Democracy can not always work.” That may be true, but there is always chance to correct errors when all respect the law of the land. In electoral system, there is a contract between the electorate and the elected. If the electorate determined that the elected do not serve them well, the elected ones will lose their office when the term is over and you can even recall them back before their term is over.

    Girum said:
    “I am very confused and amazed as to the real reason behind demonizing Socialism by many of us. No one as such able to give me ample convincing rational as well as moral reason to demonize Socialism.” It is not only about resource distribution, is also about governing. Socialism is bad because there is no electoral system; it is a tyranny of one party. In its life time, it has not demonstrated that it was better than liberal society in any sector of society. People don’t like to be ruled by people they don’t like or hate, inherent characteristic of human nature.

    Girum said:
    “…intellectuals are blindly labeling TPLF as Socialist and Revolutionary Democrat by associating this labeling to bad things of Socialism.” Socialism is associated to TPLF because of tyrannical and dictatorial nature of TPLF. It has nothing to do with its resource distribution. What resources does TPLF distributed to the poor? Nada!!

    Girum said:
    “However the essences behind in both words (Revolutionary=Pro-Mass and socialistic, Democracy=Liberal Democracy of the West) are so contradictory and are so bogus pretending camouflages to mislead the naïve and gullible ones.” I completely agree with you. I let my friend Dawi defend himself.

    Girum said:
    “And hence for me Socialism is not only my intellectual social order and political preference but also the inherent nature of Ethiopian Society.” I do not agree with this. Historically, there is no socialistic culture/economy or something similar to it in Ethiopian society. Ethiopian society has been highly divided along economic line, slave, gebar, feudal lord, merchant, etc. Even in the land ‘gult” system of northern Ethiopia, the wealth gap between the rich and poor was huge, there are some who do not own land at all and survive by working for land owners.

    Dear all guys just Google anything you want regarding socialism by referring any socialist websites.
    Think of vanguard and pioneering historical socialist parties still existing in Europe like France and Germany. I think you are totally brainwashed regarding socialism. I used to become a bit upset when i hear such comments from guys like you. But now i laugh. It it not sometimes good to laugh when things are like this? Dear all guys I think you have been totally brainwashed for the last 20 or more years hearing the same meta-hymn regarding Liberal-Economy (Free-Market) and Liberal-Democracy that are two sides of the same coin (Capitalism).It was in the 1970s when the first neo-liberalism policies in 3rd world countries was first implemented as a pilot project in Chile. And due to this so many young Chilean economics academicians were indoctrinated in the Chicago School of Economics in order to indoctrinate and baptize them by the policies of Neo-Liberalism as is applied through SAP(Structural Adjustment Programs).And those students who were indoctrinated and baptized are called “Chicago-Boys”. Following this destructive trend of applying neo-liberalism in Chile others also follow suit and hence so many Latin American countries have been plunged in to such devastating economic and social chaos due to Neo-Liberalism as is applied through SAP. Meles for the last 20 years has been like “Chicago-Boys” for Anglo-American Neo-Liberal global capitalism. How about you guys??? I am afraid that you are knowingly or unknowingly a new Ethiopian brand of “Chicago-Boys”. Look what is happening in Ethiopia! The mass is severely impoverished from time to time in extinction. Why? Because Meles is simply a dictator ?Or ethno-centric? Not that much due to this. Unless Meles has got a reliable system that backs his ethno-centric or dictatorial attitude then he would have been an isolated mere ordinary person like you and me and hence would not have ample power to do such chaos. One of the very insidious motives behind ethno-centric attitudes, instigating or aggravating ethnicity, in 3rd world nations like us with diverse ethnicity is in order to create a conducive condition for the formation of class structures that are suitable for the inner workings of Global Capitalism. The same is also true in insidiously instigating or aggravating religious differences. Believe it or not capitalism is inherently a system that favors the very few and marginalizes the mass. Therefore, in order to create a parasitic rent-seeking symbiotic comprador elite that is compliant with global capitalism in 3rd world nations, then you have to find all means to extract aggravate and exploit all potential disparities in a certain society to create such class structure.

    Girum concurrs with the author that Meles is the only cause to the humanitarian, economic, political and according to the literature review by Professor Alemayehu G. Mariam, an environmental crises may be added to list, I praphrase. I use the above conditions, eventhough the author is relating the action and behavior of Meles to economic develpment and socioeconomic conditions. He has no qualm of the constitutional frame work based on ethnic federalaism secessionism, and totaliarinism as causes to hindering free market capitalism and democracy to the silent majority of Ethiopians and individual freedom, liberty and equality to have precedence over ethnic and secessionist rihts, rights built into the costitution in the form of ethnic federalism and secessionism.

    What the leaders in OPDF/EFDF/fdre are contending the TPLF/eprdf regime is about the inequality (yekili Mengistats ikulent Mebit) and a barrage of charges against Woyane (TPLF), with out admitting the support to the constitution of ethnic federalism, secessionism and totalirinism by the teletafi (ethnic federalist) parties and the loyalist (ethnic federalist) opposition parties and ex-TPLFites in UDJP.

    For Girum to digress from the thesis, argumentative position of the author and present Global Capitalism and free market capitalism, which has been thoroughly reviewed by Dr. Fekadu Bekele of the World Economic Form is out of place and cover up for the damages being cuased by the constitutional frame work of the constitution that does not allow free market capitalism and democracy to the silent majority of Ethiopians and does not allow individual freedom to have prcedence over ethnic and secessionist rights, in order to establish a truly democratic, rather than ethnic rule and a democratic government that rules by the consent of the goverened much as is the case in the United States by emulating the constituion of the United States, which otherwise impossible to mix ethnic rule with democratic rule, totaliarinism and/or State Capitalism, with free market economy, ethnic rule minority or majority with democratic rule.

    Socialism can not be totally restricted to only one party system. The essence of socialism is simple in that it emphasizes advancing the interest of the populace. Chronic capitalism failed to fulfill the needs (especially material) of the mass because it is a system governed by few for the main benefit of the few upper most capitalist class. So more than one party can compete for power still having socialist views. Socialism is just an ideology and those who have this ideology but with different ability in executive performance can compete for power through election. If more than one party can compete in Capitalism for power then why not in Socialism too? Yes it is possible too in Socialism. So in this 21st century when some one is invoking socialism back how on earth it is with such a sole uncivilized intention of power mongering with one party system. Dear all guys that has never ever been my view .The point so many of you guys missed is that like those old days of rigid premature socialism did not deliver us real democracy then today also crafty global Capitalism is not either delivering us real democracy except that of the illusion and fantasy of democracy through bogus democracy through mere election.
    So having election by itself is not an indication of good governance. As is said by some farsighted intellectuals in that “The system controls you through election but you can not control the system through election.” then it is being so naïve and gullible to expect that the crafty capitalist class naively and gullibly transfers real power to the mass trough the mere game of electoral democracy. And like wise in the globally pervasive heydays era of global capitalism it is also being so naïve and gullible that the 3rd world elite rulers become so loyal in preference to the interest of their subject mass rather than to that of global capitalism. So who is so naïve and gullible regarding Liberal-Democracy and Liberal-Economy (Free-Market) is intellectuals like us and not the Crafty Capitalists system. The crafty capitalists system is so resilient is tactics but so prudent and steadfast in its strategic end-games. So this scenario is also some how analogues to TPLF on one side and Opposition on the other side during the last 20 years. So let’s not as such worship and fantasize the usual electoral democracy beyond what is warranted. And also let’s not simply expect an already completely cooked success or privilege and we have to work hard on things to improve even when we talk about socialism. Like the way we seriously demonize Socialism to the contrary are we as such today achieving genuine free-market economy or genuine democracy the way we expected things. NO!!! If we tolerate the evils of chronic global Capitalism to these days of our misery and impoverishment we are doomed, then what is wrong with us to tolerate the flaws of Socialism and then work hard on it to exploit the merits of its intrinsic virtues? Please dear all guys please do not associate socialism entirely with those old days in its premature application. As life is an experiment too, then both in theory and in practice we pretty well know both Socialism and Capitalism. So there is no as such a very concealed reason we can confuse things.
    Like a single well behaved responsible person can act and behave like a government then likewise an irresponsible and corrupt government can act and behave like a mere ordinary individual. So when we talk about governance and government then it has to be with a certain well defined and well established essence or intrinsic virtue. What is the very essence and intrinsic virtue of Government and governance? Very vital question we have to answer. So when I even talk about socialism as long as corrupt and irresponsible individuals cling to power in its name then it can also be abused by very few. So when we talk and think of Government and governance let’s make inherent attributes to its essence and purpose rather than making it such a sole embodiment of as to whether Mr X or Mr. Y is in power. The other thing I want to assert is that I strongly support private sector economic activities in parallel to public and government owned ones. So when both sectors are working in parallel then there will be check and balance. For example if there is 60 percent GDP related to Government and public sector economic activity then 40 percent can be allocated to the private one. The last resort credit source (Credit Money creation) one of the top most vital issue in a certain nation. And in this regard I strongly believe that a certain nation state has to be 100 percent the source of its last resort credit source (Credit Money creation) for a certain sane and healthy economy. And if things happen not to implement this then it can also be fairly allocated like 70 percent to Government and 30 percent private. And in the finance sector the banking system is also better like 70 percent to Government/public and 30 percent private. And in this regard unless the majority mass has power in the economic sector as well then sane free-market can not work effectively. During the time of this sort of chronic global capitalism one of the main sources of inflation is the huge influx of foreign currency beyond which the local economy can carry it. If a certain nation state or government can not undertake the majority of its own local economy with its own last resort credit source (Credit Money creation) then it is no more an independent sovereign nation state or government.
    Under the disguise of unbridled FDI, 3rd world nations are robbed of their resources cheaply by being deprived and starved of last resort credit source (Credit Money creation) in order to undertake their local economy. So regional currencies among 3rd world nations has to be established and encouraged so that they can handle their regional wise internal transactions with out the hurdle caused by the shortage of international currencies. This all free and fair economic activities and prosperity for the majority mass can not be simply achieved by mere rhetoric of free-market and liberal democracy of global capitalism alone. SoSocialistic views and Socialism can enable us to achieve this. If Capitalism is becoming globalized like this we call ‘Globalization’ then why not Socialism too? I do not have a problem with ‘Globalization’ but rather in its essence/meaning/purpose and application. So we can think of Socialism being globalaized. If under Global capitalism the main interest of very few capitalist class elites is globalized through their well orgamized and systematic oppression and plundering against the mass, then why not the interest of the mass is also globalized like wise?

However in today’s global capitalism what we see in reality is hypocrisy not democracy. However in today’s global capitalism what we see is government (or governance) for the Capitalists class by the Capitalists class.
    However in today’s global capitalism what we see in reality is the deliverance of Democracy is just in the form of its emotional fantasy and illusion. And I am afraid that most of those(who inculcate or hype democracy beyond what existing realities can support) our prospective leaders who strive for power hosting in the West are most probably to fall at the tarps of Global capitalism and hence what they will deliver us is most probably Democracy just in the form of its emotional fantasy and illusion. Because most of them are just Chicago-Boys who do not want to scrutinize the prevailing global social order of global capitalism and its related deep-rooted and multifaceted effects in 3rd world nations. Though I say this about them I agree with them in that as a first very critical priority we have to remove the incumbent racist TPLF regime sidelining other differences. Here I want to assert that I do not want to create any sort of confusing and distracting move in that having the very need of unwavering solidarity in toppling the incumbent TPLF regime is my unwavering firm stand. The very reason I write about global capitalism is for naïve and gullible Ethiopians to see the other side of story behind the curtain. So raising the issue of global capitalism can not be as such a ‘hindrance’ for fighting TPLF. For those who have a calculated clandestine tactical move of achieving the usual modus-operandi type similar support from Global Capitalism in order to topple the incumbent and then become the next pawn or stooge as client-regime next to Ato Meles well then my move is a hindrance and distraction which I agree and admit in that case. Well in that case talking something bad about SHABIA is also a hindrance and distraction.

    Pure communism has its philosophy based on “to each according to his needs and from according to his ability” and free market capitalism, has its ideology based each individual has its share of the pie in a free maket capitalism according to his skills, I believe upon free and fair competion in the market place. With Governments participating in major sectors of the economy, free market capitalism is not fully realized, which for most countries a mixed economy and /or State capitalism as in Ethiopia and East Asian counties are applied in the mix with free market capitalism, where the participants in the case of Ethiopia are TPLF and TPLF affiliated enterprises and foreign corporations in terms of mainley land lease .

    Much of of your last commentary is about diversion from the the three ideologies of ethnic federalism, secessionism and totaliarinism, which hinder free market capitalism, even with its flaws, democracy, individual freedom, liberty and equality to have precedence over ethnic and secessionist politics, than what you are trying to tells us of a comparison between socialism, and free market capitalism and /or global capitalism and blaming global capitalism as culprit to perhaps the humanitarian, economic, political and environmental crises undergoing in Ethiopia for the last 21 years.
