I, Horus don't like to mince words.The sickest perspective in the history of politics is that which tries to organize a political community on the principle of ethnicity. Ethnicity as the organizing unit of a modern political order is not only the sickest it is also the stupidest perspective in the history of man. This is my last comment to you.
This reply is not an attempt to continue to engage Horus. But the readers who have been following the discussion deserve some parting comments. Horus is saying, "The sickest perspective in the history of politics is that which tries to organize a political community on the principle of ethnicity." . I want to bring the experience of the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is another country asymmetrically decentralized on ethnic groups. England
and Northern Ireland
are ethnic groups locally known as "Nations ብሔሮች". Collectively, they make up the UK. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own parliaments in charge of health, education and other budgets. The Scottish Government is called Riaghaltas na h-Alba, pronounced [ˈrˠiə. əl̪ˠt̪əs nə ˈhal̪ˠapə]). The welsh Parliament is called Senedd Cymru.
Culturally, the ethnic groups ብሔሮች in UK are encouraged to maintain their ethnic heritages and culture. For example, the 4 nations compete independently in European and World football, rugby, athletics and other sports. The UK has four separate football governing bodies, one for each home nation. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales competed on Fifa World Cup Qatar qualifiers and 3 teams qualified in the World Cup.
The British Pound Sterling £ also has different images in circulation in England, Scotland and Norther Ireland to reflect their varied history and culture.
When Ethiopia killed 60 of its royal families centered officials of Atsie Hiale Sellasie I government, the United Kingdom formulate a modern formula for the Royal Family to engage in making the country a capital of the world historic museum. Now what sort of mind and ideology would call the United Kingdom, one of the oldest democracies of the world, the country of Magna Carta
some 800 years ag, "The sickest perspective in the history of politics" for organizing a political community on the principle of ethnicity? It is evident the "unitary system at any cost" brigade cannot contribute nothing positive to Ethiopian politics apart from never-ending wars. It has lost the debate in academic auditoriums, town hall discussions and military warfare theaters.
Fano and Amhara politicians must liberate themselves from the ideologies and influence of this toxic political class. ከአንድነት / አሃዳዊው / ኢትዮፕያኒስት ፖለቲከኞች ነጻ የወጣ የአማራ ሃይል የሚቀጥለው ስራ፤ የአማራ ጥያቄ ምን እንደሆነ እንደገና re-frame ማደረግ አለበት። አሁን የሚነገረው የአማራ ጥያቄ በኢትዮፕያኒስቱ ሃይል የተጻፈና ኢትዮፕያኒስት አጀንዳ እዲያስፈጽም ተብሎ ከአሃዳዊው ሃይል ጥያቄዎች intertwined የሆነና ሆን ተብሎ impossible to achieve ኢንዲሆን የረቀቀ ነው።

Magna Carta was issued in June 1215 and was the first document to put into writing the principle that the king and his government was not above the law. It sought to prevent the king from exploiting his power, and placed limits of royal authority by establishing law as a power in itself.
