The Most Basic National Mission of Ethiopia

Post by Horus » 25 Dec 2017, 23:21

Dear Ethiopians - Happy Christmas, 2018, Gena, & Timket!!

Our personal and national consciousness has been bombarded by tribalism, injustice and political conflict and military violence so much so that we have come to forget our most basic purpose in life and the very purpose of our national existence. From time to time, we need to revisit this most fundamental meaning of our very being. Individual Ethiopian person dies but Ethiopia is eternal and there is a reason for her eternal existence. How do we understand her purpose?

I

The National Mission of Ethiopia

Here is one way to begin the dialogue on the national purpose of Ethiopians. I will not go into the explanation behind my basic points. In my view, the very basic national mission of Ethiopia is to achieve immortality and eternity of our nation. Ethiopia must continue to achieve eternal national unity and enduring cultural integration as a nation of visionary prophets, wise sages, saintly healers, and heroic warriors. Her visionary prophets will lead her to greatest harmony among her religions and give her deepest spiritual integration. Her sagely teachers will lead her to be a nation of sacred beauty, intelligence, knowledge, and wisdom. Her righteous political officials and saintly social leaders will give her a culture of truth, blameless moral standards, justice, family-hood, and love. Her heroic warriors will lead her to be a nation of creativity, innovation, industry, free expression, energy, prosperity, and happiness. This is the very first national mission of Ethiopia. This is one way of saying our most universal national purpose.

II
The Ethiopian Spirit: The Great Ethiopian Family

The Ethiopian People are a single family of 100, 000,000 persons. Each person is cuddled inside the Ethiopian nuclear family. Each nuclear family is cuddled inside the Ethiopian extended family. In most communities, the extended family is nested inside the clan or the tribe group. The tribe is nested within the ethnic group. Ethiopia has about 100 of those ethnic communities. These 100 ethnic groups are warmly cuddled within the supreme family of The Ethiopian Super-Family - Our Nation. Other intentional and institutional collectives have similar types of holarchic structures. These include classes and interest groups, economic associations, professional and community organization, and governmental and nongovernmental institutions. All of these diverse and multiple arrangements integrate into the Great Ethiopian Nest – the People of Ethiopia - sharing national character, culture, history, society, economy, and the Ethiopian experience.

III
The Ethiopian Individual

Each of the 100,000,000 individuals has her/his personal life. She has her belief and spiritual life. She has her religion and prayers. She has her own dying and her own soul. She dies alone. He dies alone. The class, the nationality or the tribe has no soul. It does not die with the individual. Each individual has his own psychological life, his perception, sensation, memory, and attention. The tribe has no brain, has no mind, and has no memory. The ethnic entity is a fiction that exists in the minds of individuals - in thought alone. Some may claim that they receive psychological comfort from their ethnic exclusion and uniqueness. But one get this type of psychological ‘comfort’ at the cost of the trauma of separatism and at the cost of hating others, anger, rage, and violence. In the very deep sense, ethnicity is a form of psychological dysfunction or abnormality.

Each person has his own intelligence, wisdom, knowledge, and information. Ethnicity or nationality is not knowledge or culture. It is the creation of bad culture. Nationality is not culture. Each person has her own friends, family, school or work group, game or gender group, her own skills, education, or his own illiteracy. Persons live their own lives, and surly none live ethnic life. There is no mode of life known as ethnicity. We live as farmers, carpenters, student, house wives and so on. Finally each person has her own experience – her own feelings, thoughts, actions, and cognition. When individuals fail in their lives, they resort to the illusion of nationality, ethnicity, and tribalism, and clanism to displace their failure and suffering as inidividuals. The tribe is an escape mechanism for a life that has become too overwhelming to manage in a complex world. Contemplate on this issue. In Ethiopia, there are communities a lot of communities who waste little of their time on the illusion of ethnicity and they never had famine, profound poverty, war, or destruction in their recent history. So, if we want to lift Ethiopia out of her present ethnic mud, we need to focus on the Ethiopian individual person and on a nonethnic organization of our lives.

IV

Do Ethiopians Need Ethnicity?

First, the 100,000,000 Ethiopian individuals are divided into two biological identities – Female and male. If our nation were allowed to focus on real issues, the problems surrounding the gender issues alone would have consumed most of our energies. The problems facing the Ethiopian male such as violence, war, stress, education, unemployment and issues facing women are too numerous to list. There are two great roles - gender and role based identities – motherhood and fatherhood that we need to focus on and enhance. Immediately following gender identity and family roles, we Ethiopians need to spend our time on personal character, individual rights, political freedom, economic, social, and developmental roles rather than be preoccupied with retarding tribal and ethnic identities. In this day and age, none-ethnic and non- tribal affiliations such as being a craftsman, intellectual, worker, teacher, merchant, and mechanic are by far more useful and life enhancing rather than going to war to be a particular tribe.

Much has been said about tribalism and ethnicity as tools of identity, I will not waste any more time on them. The question then is what other use does ethnicity have? Does ethnicity add value to those who believe in it? Does ethnicity provide knowledge about food sufficiency, innovation, creativity, intelligence, and craftsmanship? The answers are no. Ethnicity is not a usable value creating knowledge. Ethnicity is not a set of skills or human resources, which can be applied toward the solution of life’s problems. Ethnicity is not about craft, technical skill, or artistic development. Ethnicity is not competence. It is not a management or leadership competence. Ethnicity has no professional development value. Hence, the fact that an Ethiopian is a Tigre or an Oromo will add nothing to the person’s, education, cognitive development, academic or professional ability. In fact, the evidence leads in the opposite direction. Most Ethiopians who are fixated on tribalism and ethnicity lag far behind on these key categories of personal and social development.

V
The Ethiopian Identity

Do Ethiopians need Ethnicity as a tool of identity? The answer is no. The Ethiopian family, extended family, small clans may have genetic basis for their existence. Individual may be biologically related as one race. The story ends there. There is no evidence to show the genetic, biological or racial bases to explain why a given group of persons belong to the same ethnic group. The origin of most ethnic affiliations is preliterate and unconscious myths and habits that are out of steps with the march of times. The terms Eritrea, Hamasien, Agame, Tigre, Amara Gurage, Oromo, Kaffa are now mere labels with no inherent meaning beyond the mindless habit of identification. There is no rational or educated explanation why a person in Awassa should be a Gojamie rather than an Adere. It is like calling a dog ‘[deleted]’ in Amharic and a ‘dog’ in English- mere label. Hence, ethnicity has no identificational purpose. The concept of ‘ETHIOPIAN’ is entirely sufficient identity at all levels of individual and collective life of the Ethiopian person.

It is possible a lot of people will disagree but this is true and the only bold way out.

Really, Horus? First, Merry Christmas/'Genna' to you too. [Note 'genna' written in qubee where you double the 'nn' as a way of stressing the 'n' sound. Otherwise, it would read as 'gena' (not yet)]. In Sabean/Geez alphabet, both 'Genna' (Christmas) & 'Gena' (not yet) are written as 'ገና' - which creates confusion & ambiguity to readers. 8)

You must be imagining a different Ethiopia from your cosy safe heaven in ferenjilandia. In a sense, first things first. You can't have a better Ethiopia without first paying the necessary sacrifices to remove tigre habesha's cancerous tissues from the body of 'Immama Ethiopia'. Of course, you can freely imagine an Ethiopia of wonderland that is full of sages, milk & honey .. but that remains just that: a figment of your imagination.

This is more like the most basic - and urgent - 'National Mission of Ethiopia/Ethiopians' for the foreseeable future.

yaballo,

Fes yalebet zilay ayichilim yiluwal. My article is not about Oromos alone. It is about all of the 100 tribes including oromos. You jumped up reacted because it is your issue. Remember, you are trying to fight tigray rule not because you were the defender of Ethiopia all these 40 years but just now tigray needs conflicted with your needs. I have asked you to tell us your Ethiopian Agenda for long. You still don't have it. This article is about Ethiopian agenda. What is that you are opposing? If you have salt refute my basic points about the natural right of man vs. the claimed power of a group called ethnicity. You can't so you resort to insult. By the way, the tigray problem is your soup. You made it, now you have to figure out how to eat it or get rid of it. You and woyane came to Addis to divide us. Kebish!!!!

As for your uninformed (I should say ignorant) statement about the root of Gena is laughable. If Oromofa has a term for Gena, you should tell us!! Gena is my culture. My Shewa Christian obbos do it as we do it. Gena both as Birth of Christ or the Game of Hockey is not your culture. It is a Christian culture. The words means Birth. So, save your ignorance. Gena is not Oromo term. If you want the Oromo language to be respected, you need to stop making grandiose and baseless claims. Negati!

Horus,

I didn't say that the word 'Genna' is Oromo. I only showed how, to avoid confusion with another word in Amharic that is also spelt just like it [i.e. the word 'gena' - as in 'not yet'] due to inherent inadequacies of the Sabean/Geez alphabet; qubee alphabet is much ... much better for transcribing/writing Amharic words. OK - mon ami des grandes exagérations? Please stop your useless grandstanding & emotional rantings & encourage your tribe to start fighting the woyanes alongside other Ethiopians. Galatoomi. Nagaatti.

Horus is like the man who keeps writting and revising his busines plan and dies off from analysis-paralysis without making a single cent.

Horus,
It is from within ACTION that bonding matter occures, not from a meaningles, pre-written rhetoric. Think of someone whom you had previously thought was your adversery but melted your heart when he stood with you at your worst moments.

You cant write comradery, but you build it through common action. It is such that you have reduced poletics as a mere exercise of claim and marketting, you are refusing to listen. In such cases, you will incrementally get ignored into irrelevance. You already sense it happening but you are oblivious to the scale. I am not your enemy when i am telling you that you are getring high off a false positive.

Individual may be biologically related as one race. The story ends there. There is no evidence to show the genetic, biological or racial bases to explain why a given group of persons belong to the same ethnic group. The origin of most ethnic affiliations is preliterate and unconscious myths and habits that are out of steps with the march of times. The terms Eritrea, Hamasien, Agame, Tigre, Amara Gurage, Oromo, Kaffa are now mere labels with no inherent meaning beyond the mindless habit of identification. There is no rational or educated explanation why a person in Awassa should be a Gojamie rather than an Adere. It is like calling a dog ‘[deleted]’ in Amharic and a ‘dog’ in English- mere label. Hence, ethnicity has no identificational purpose. The concept of ‘ETHIOPIAN’ is entirely sufficient identity at all levels of individual and collective life of the Ethiopian person.
Happy Christmas to you and all the others out there! :P

With regard to your poetic self serving folktales and endless subjective fictional fake history telling and retelling and retelling and then retailing and retailing as an occupation and through that attempt to hypnotize the uniformed to fight on your behalf and then after that carry you on a golden chair to replace the Golden race in Meneik's palace does not work. You are siting in a foreign country eating King size cheese burgers, drinking king size Coca cola and then directly as well as indirectly keep agitating and inflaming the 2.5% Gurage tribalism while at the same time cvnningly denouncing all the non Gurage good and pluralistic egalitarian ethnics only because they happen to be 35%, 45%, etc. large numbers offering abundant human resource bases for making Ethiopia great again as they are not only 2.5% alone. At least my good Gurage friend like Zabarga and Mengistu Ingida agree with me.

If Oromos, Amharas and the others seem to be lagging far behind in education and other areas of

It seems also that you are amazed as to how the tiny tplf managed to land in Obbo Menelik's palace with rocket speed aided by the small eplf (Eritrean people's liberation front) and thinking to compete, role play tplf and then carried fast to obbo Menelik's palace by the Eritreans. But unfortunately ever since times and tides have changed completely as we are now living in a different world with different generation and different agenda. I am saying this as a non politician realistic neutral observer supporting true unity within the existing diversity and building equality and justice for all.

Instead of sitting in a foreign country and building the proverbial utterly failed "TOWER OF BABEL" get out of your comfortable bubble house and go to Ethiopia to struggle and contribute in building equality and justice for all and through that promote the building of the proverbial "GARDEN OF EDEN" abandoning your useless, "TOWER OF BABEL" All these functions smoothly and very well through the natural recognition of individual identity, family identity, clan identity, ethnic identity, national identity, human identity and celebrating our differences and similarities with respect and dignity instead of closing our eyes and denying realities on constant basis.

yaballo,

The term 'gena' be it the short or long accent means beginning. I see no difference - that why we have accents. As for qube, I have nothing to say but I know Oromofa could use Ge'ez Fidel. Negati.

gearhead,
I have no clue about what you are trying to say. Do you disagree with any of the 5 parts? Tell us !!!

Sun,

Yours is a bad advice. Tribalism is our past, not our future.

Not true!

You understand exactly what i am saying. You know that it was a response to part 1 and a reitteration to what yabbalo has already written. You couldnt have missed it the repetition unless you are stupid..I got tired of the gibberish past part 1 so i didnt read the rest.

As i said you have willfully blocked yourself off and as such, you will die off the same way as mighty EPRP had done, bitting comcepts more than you can chew and acting on none of it, gradually becoming irrelevant.

Adios and good luck. I wont bother your uninitiated head no more.

Dear TPLF Cadres,

Please don't waste your time responding to my comments because you can't respond to my points. Don't waste your time repeating the failing and failed tribal theorizing. I state opposition to tribalism as politics openly and clearly. What is going on in Ethiopia confirms what I am talking about. I don't even think you all are capable of reading a complex essay about a subject matter. So, my posting is not for your entertainment. Ditto.

5 oromos against 1 wurage..…kkkkk.

Personally I see nothing wrong in horus’s writing, but oromos are ganging upon this poor guy. --- albeit sun’s claim (oromos are just people) …kkkk


Oromos are warriors, they love fighting. If you are minority they are ready to swallow you. If they perceive you as a weak, they have no mercy on you.
What is gonna happen to minorities in Oromia? I fear bad day is approaching for gurages,siltes,kembatas,hadyas and other minorities in Oromia and surrounding areas… God be with these minorities.

kolfe,

We know what you say is the classic TPLF play book for its divide-and rule, and divide-and make-them fight survival imagination. But that game book is too old and proven useless. The arrow has turned on the archer. As for the danger of extinction of the small guy, there is something you are missing - Ethiopia. I hope you got my point. Make sure that you don't trip over your own sword. KKKKK

Adde Kolfe,

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” ~Adolf Hitler

The quote applies to your self serving fake politically motivated smear campaigns against the democratic, egalitarian and humanist great Oromos who love minorities, all the animals and the entire environments donated to them by benevolent and omnipotent mother nature.

All minorities in Oromia the beautiful will be loved and cared for simply because we are part and parcel of each other and in that sense deserve honey and milk like always.

I am sure that you will be burning from envy and jealousy when you hear the truth, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, and then keep inscribing anti Oromo evil fake propaganda in an attempt to rob and steal Oromo human and material resources like always.

If the charming HMD is waking up and starting to shout against Oromos, the peaceful Oromo youth and their good friends he is only afraid of the peaceful democratic changes destined to come while he is defending his throne so that he keeps it for ever only for himself, an idea which is alien to the democratic and egalitarian Oromo values and traditions who were/are used to changing leaders democratically every given and agreed fixed years. Ethiopians in general, Oromos in particular shouldn't be so dumb and passive as to allow leaders such presidents, Prime Ministers, etc. to impose Prime ministers and presidents for life to happen while all of our young generations are pushed to the margins and entirely kicked out side of the society being constantly forced to leave their homes, communities and country to go and die in mass in alien countries and cultures or forced to be sold as slaves by brutal,and cruel Libyan and other slave traders. :oops:

The Ethiopian youth, our dear and near children and blood, deserves better treatments and justice since the future and the country belongs to them unconditionally. That is why these generation of young people MUST FIGHT PEACEFULLY FOR THEIR RIGHTS THERE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY AND COMMUNITIES rather than flying out from their country and communities and becoming great endless burdens to foreign countries and governments.


So let the great God and the benevolent mother nature help us all to do the right thing so that we may become GREAT AGAIN together and separately! :P

sun,

I know that you never change, you are fixated at perhaps grabing the power at all means but still let me tell you the following.

You keep saying we are the majority and as such we have a rightful claim to govern the others, and you keep saying that we are egalitarian, democratic and so on so forth.

But in the book I read democratism and egalitarianism don't emanate from a claim to the highest level of state power based on the blood majority one group of people has got in a society that is to be governed. In such claim lies a very dangerous ploy of alineating many hard-working and patriotic citizens of the nation. Those citizens would be deprived of their democratic rights of being elected to all levels of the state power on the sole merit of their performance, just because they are not part of your "majority" of egalitarian, democratic, etc. Your proposal is exclusionist while democratism and egalitarianism are inclusive.

If you don't understand the difference between these two ideas, then you don't also deserve to be here, lol.

I, as a citizen of a nation, demand that my rights are respected and protected, which doesn't include a demand to give the highest possible office ONLY to those in my group, which is a fallacy of a democratic principle.


While you are at it, read the following definition of the two terms:

democratism: a doctrine of or belief in social equality or the right of all people to participate equally in politics.

egalitarianism: Affirming, promoting, or characterized by belief in equal political, economic, social, and civil rights for all people.

Really? :lol: :lol:

Keep in your small fuzzy and closed mind the fact that the parliamentary group that has the largest number of elected parliamentarians, like in the current Ethiopian parliament, the Oromia State, has the right to the position of Prime Ministerial position since they are the single largest group in the parliament as well as the right to form a functioning stable democratic government based on majority rule, no questions asked. Okay? Okay! :P

You the mother of all the beachy bickerers and p!ggy wh0re liars, the fact is that the humanist and majority egalitarian and democratic good Oromos and their good Amhara partners, together forming over 80% of the good entire Ethiopian people are going to build and promote a modern peaceful and prosperous democracy and modern egalitarianism based on the proven models of the Nordic Welfare countries. You qinxiram fanddia beach may seat on the dirty contaminated beach and keep talking rubbish until I come to ask you, "Gebash gebbash ante wedel necci lebash!"? :lol:

Why should I care if your Oromo is prime minister or not, did you see anywhere that I demanded for such kind of privilege? NO!

I am asking my rights to be respected and protected by the elected officials and other institutions in the country, not about making an Oromo for me a prime minister or any other official for that matter.

You know what, we were brought to the quagmire we are in today by such a sludge, like the one you posted somewhere today from the bottom of a drying river, headed individuals like you.

You are worthless, except your filty mouth. Take comfort in it!
