As a matter of coming together and expressing grave concern about the very peace, security, sovereignty, territorial integrity of the country and the need to give the right response, this call sounds great!
But it is neither unfair nor taboo to question ourselves about the way we think, and the way do things. I sincerely believe that the very reason we repeatedly and painfully failed to make a true democratic system a reality is because our activities are unfortunately characterized by a very self-defeating emotion , event-controlled thinking , extremely shot -sighted motivation, and of course being victims of the ruling elites who came to power by hook or crook ( by cynical, hypocritical, conspiratorial , narcissist/self-aggrandizing, and of course very deadly or ruthless political means). I understand that so many compatriots may try to paint individuals who have this kind of clear and straightforward opinions and comments with a very ugly accusation of being traitors or in betrayal of their own country. I sincerely argue that one of the reasons why we are victims of the political culture of repeated and nonsensical failure is because we are not courageous enough to face the very hard reality of our own. We instead keep making any clumsy if not stupid excuses over and repeatedly. Let me straightforwardly say the following: • It was three years ago when we totally abandoned the very fundamental objective, goal and principle 0f bringing about a real democratic system and make the very deadly political system of EPRDF the thing of the past that we became victims of the continuation of not only the same but the much more ugly and deadly political agenda and purpose of one the faction and junta of the same system that renamed itself Prosperity by sending its former brain-father ( TPLF- another faction and junta) to the Mekele palace . • How many protests we had when countless innocent citizens have been victims of genocide, destruction, displacement, and all kinds of untold sufferings for the past three years? Have we strongly and persistently put pressure on those ruling elites who deliberately and terribly failed to take preventive measures or to take swift controlling actions about the very unprecedented misery innocent people were exposed? Is this not kind of political stupidity and moral degradation? Why we terribly failed at least to be courageous enough to strongly hold those highly cynical and miserably ruthless ruling elites of the very toxic and deadly political system of ethnocentrism whenever we try to rally behind the very issue of sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country? Do we really believe that foreign powers including US government are much more dangerous than our own stupid or idiotic way of handling our own internal affairs or politics? Why we keep decrying the interventions of those powers which is not something new in the political game of world politics instead of excreting our maximum collective efforts on those two factions and juntas of the same deadly political system (EPRDF and its satellites or partners)? • How we chose to remain ignorant about or kind of indifferent to the very hypocritical and conspiratorial orchestration by elements of the ruling circle both concerning the civil war in the north and the very continuation of genocidal crime in Oromia (Wolega) and Benishangul-Gumuz? Are we comfortable to invite and listen to the very notoriously idiotic rhetoric of those officials you mentioned without challenging them that they are nothing but the very cadres of the same crime -infested political system of EPRDF/Prosperity which continues by making its document of killing the generation (the constitution) and all vital instruments of brutal suppression and exploitation intact? Is this not a very ruthless insult to the very basic consciences of the people?
Let me reiterate that I am not arguing that we should not come together and stand against any unnecessary intervention in the very internal affairs of our country! Not at all! What I am trying to say is that if we keep being victims of those cynical, dishonest and ruthless ruling elites and all other political entities of the very toxic and deadly politics of ethnocentrism, our cry and decry is nonsensical! Who horribly causes miserable situations? Do we really see real differences of political strategy between those two factions and juntas of the same criminal political system (EPRDF/Prosperity)? Is it not true that it is because of their beast-like and highly destructive power mongering behaviors that the country is not able to heal from a very deep and painful illness? How the political behavior of rallying behind these ruling elites could address and resolve the national cause we are talking about? The political culture of not doing one’s homework that could make one’s home in a reliable and long-term order of a democratic system but simply decrying the unnecessary intervention of external forces mut be challenged if we want to make a difference and to be a good players of world politics. I hate to say but I have to say that it is a critical time to question ourselves for how long and to what extent we keep making our very valuable values of arts and literature instruments or playing cards of the ruling elites and politicians who come to power by hook or crook and use it as an opportunity to stay in power unchallenged. If we do not try to get out of this horribly embarrassing and consequently dangerous way of political thinking and behavior which we have gone through very horrifying situations for a quarter of a century and much more miserable situations for the past three years of “democratic reform”, there must be something extremely wrong with us and we desperately need to figure out and make it right today, not tomorrow! And that thing to be made right is to continue the concerted and persistent struggle aimed at answering the very question or cause of the protracted struggle (the realization of a fundamental democratic change) of which huge and priceless sacrifices were paid in a very clear and straightforward manner!
Democracy and the fulfillment of national interest will never become a reality by aligning oneself with the politicians or cadres of the political system which is the very root-cause of not only serious obstacle but also cancerous social, economic, and moral illnesses! Let’s try hard to get out of this very disgraceful and dangerous vicious Sycle of being victims of the disingenuous and ruthless ruling elites and reject the very self-disgraceful and self-defeating political culture of allowing ourselves to remain hostages of a very dirty and deadly politics of ethnocentrism !
