Development is a peace dividend. You cant pilot a marauding expansionist, neo-menelik amhara agenda and look forward to farm harvests.
Empirical evidence shows otherwise. The quote at the end shows it. 15 Century Oromo expansion and the 19 century Menelik's nation formation is something we can live with.
Oromo p2 is what you call "marauding expansionist"? in this case.
Amhara and others forefathers paid with blood earning to farm the land; that's why it's called "የአፅም እርስት" Ethiopia proper.
So, it's their right to farm and harvest anywhere. That's not to say the present Amhara "kilel" don't posses more rich virgin land than the rest of the country. That's including the vast rich land formerly TPLF robbed & kept for 27 years; now returned. So, you ዘረኞች are wrong to assume Amhara lack resources; to the contrary, Ethiopia is rich in resources.
Having said that, it is not for lack of rich farm land in the Amhara region that the Amhara Ethiopian "marauded" defending its forefather's land against colonizers all over Ethiopia.
Menelk was the leader that kept Ethiopia free of colonialism. We should give credit to the man.
[[.From the time Europeans arrived on American shores, the frontier—the edge territory between white man’s civilization and the untamed natural world—became a shared space of vast, clashing differences that led the U.S. government to authorize over 1,500 wars, attacks and raids on Indians, the most of any country in the world against its Indigenous people. By the close of the Indian Wars in the late 19th century, fewer than 238,000 Indigenous people remained, a sharp decline from the estimated 5 million to 15 million living in North America when Columbus arrived in 1492.]]
