ETHIOPIAN IN THE FUTURE TIME! - DEREJE MELAKU

ETHIOPIAN IN THE FUTURE TIME!

 

DEREJE MELAKU

In sum, there can be no peace or prosperity without first valuing our history and its national unity in diversity!

 

An important first step would be to re-engineer and nationalize our politics and education system. The root of our over-reliance on foreign ideologies rather than science, lies in our flawed and neo-colonial education system. We have to instill a stronger sense of patriotism, and teach respect for Ethiopia’s heroic history to the new generation. This practice is more sustainable, rather than dwelling on the victim-ridden approach that demonizes Ethiopia’s history, and presents it as one of oppressor vs. oppressed ethnicities hammered together by Atse Menelik. There is also the pretence that Ethiopia’s history and values, as well as Amharas don’t even exist. Our intellectuals need to get over this simplistic and deconstructive post-modern nonesense, and reconnect with objective reality. The existing apartheid system needs to be autlawed, and judged as terroristic and criminal as its Tplf middlemen.

In the final analysis, Ethiopia will either have a unifying Ethiopian identity, or amount to nothing more than space featuring a bunch of divided, impoverished and genocidal tribalistic groups, who are permanently aggrieved and warring. They will continue seeking foreign assistance, and blaming the Amara every time something happens anywhere in the country. In sum, there can be no peace or prosperity without first valuing our history and its national unity in diversity!
