Ethiopia at the Doorstep of Chaos

We have arrived at the moment that many warned about in the past, after 28 years of “ethnic federalism”, which is nothing more than apartheid rebranded, Ethiopia is at the doorstep of chaos. This is what happens when politics is driven by grievance and governance is determined by identity; the strif...

War: Until the Philosophy which Holds One Race [or Ethnicity] Superior is Finally Discredited

The rampant rise of tribalism and the senseless bickering that is taking place between Ethiopians in not unique to our country, this is what happens when a few extremists are allowed to dictate public discourse.

Why Even Bring up the Idea of Restoring the Ethiopian Monarchy?

Ever since I made the decision to quit writing about life in America and focus on the restoration of the monarchy in Ethiopia, I have often been greeted with the same line of questions. The monarchy has been more than forty years, some note, why even bring up the idea of a system that has been silen...

Re: Why did The amhara Orthodox Demonstrators hold the Opposition flag instead of the multiethnic flag of today's Ethiop

A Song EVERY Ethiopian Should Listen To

This is a song by Abush that every Ethiopian, especially those who are stuck on tribalism and insulting others who don't belong in the same ethnic group as them, should listen to. Before healing comes admitting our sickness as a country.

A Path to National Healing: Understanding the Source of Conflict in Ethiopia

When people feel hopeless and their outlook for the future seems bleak, it is only natural to become defensive and blame others who struggle just like us.

Facing South Africa: a Time for Restraint and Self-Reflection

Given the outbreak of violence and the targeting of fellow Africans, it is easy for to pile on and exacerbate situations by berating South Africa in totality. However, before traveling down the lanes of collective judgement, it is prudent to think twice about that course of action. Though we must co...

Ethiopia at the Breaking Point

If we are to move forward and restore hope for Ethiopia, we must first start by acknowledging the pains many harbor in their hearts and the injustices that have been visited upon various communities. I am loath to use the word tribe or ethnicity, we are a nation of diverse groups but we are Ethiopia...

ESAT, ASRAT, OMF, TMN: the Acronyms of Ethnonationalism and the Media of Ethnic Chauvinists

As if Ethiopia is not already being inundated with zeregnenet (tribalism), yet another ethnic based media company was launched recently. The same crowd that used to protest the tribal ways of TPLF decided to join the caravan of ethnonationalism . I caught a glimpse of one of their shows this weekend...

We are a society that has never dealt with the traumas of the 1970’s. Far from healing from the horrific events that led to the genocide of more than 500,000 at the hands of Mengistu Hailemariam and his henchmen, traumas were compounded by another 27 years of despotism that instilled fear and loathi...
