A Flash of Ethiopian Emotion in the Morning!

Land-Grabbing

*

A flash of emotion in the morning!
*
By any political standard and perception, is IT not to the point? The following elaboration of what is taking place in the name of development, specially around the phenomena of "land grabbing". With the only correction that the "exploiter of the resources" is the "global finance capital" originating from diverse regions, specially the "new comers" like India, China or the Arab Peninsula!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonialism

"Exploitation colonialism involved fewer colonists, typically interested in extracting resources to export to the metropole. This category includes trading posts, but it applies more to the much larger colonies where the colonists would provide much of the administration and own much of the land and other capital, but rely on indigenous people for labour."
*

What a frustrating "irony", that this is in effect a product of a revolution ("Land to the Tiller"/ መሬት ለራሹ!), which began by expropriating the "indigenous" "exploiters" (feudal landlords & a tiny "cherub" of a new bourgeoisie) and ended up by empowering the exogenous "exploiters".

This seems to me without any precedence the best "perverted-revolution" of the century! (remembering Chile and other Latin American regions, ...Indonesia.....or even Russia and some of former East European regions...or if you like Zimbabwe) And one day if the process develops to its completion, we would have the Ethiopian "neo-protectorate" state.
*

Mind you! Not "counter-revolution". Counter-revolution is by all standards " healthy" in a way, because it acts in its own interest (of all facets). The "perversion" of a revolution is acting in such an irrational manner, that the promoted interest is that of the "other"/its own "enemy"/ and not the "self".
You know the saying in Amahric! "bere karaju gar tegnto yadral" ..በሬ ካራጁ ጋር ተኝቶ የድራል
*

And by the way, an Autocracy is I think in such an environment, the most vulnerable form of Administration. If this happens to be radically "national" and a "nuisance" by hampering the "development" of the exogenous "new Capital", the latter can get rid of the "top man" by the "stroke" of the million dollars it pays to a professional "killer" or its "intelligence headquarters" at the service of the big capital dominating the region.

In contrast to this I would say "neo-colonialism", whose second phase has been inaugurated by the phenomena of "land-grabbing", would just be a footnote in the annals of African-neocolonialism.

This phenomena of land grabbing and "investment", in which the political elite of the relevant nations and states, (though they may happen to get just the "mouse" share of the "benefit") - like the role of the catalyst in a chemical process in nature- are playing a major and crucial role in legalising the "capital flow" to the "global finance-centres", has nothing to do with African development and the so-called "primitive accumulation" of the African continent. In what ever direction the capital would flow it has only been so far, "a flow" to the detriment of the Africans and not in the direction of the African continent, but to the benefit of the old and new "global finance-capital-centres", where-ever they are, be it the classical centres in Western Europe and America or the new-comers like India, Turkey or China.

Along this line I remember, there was a "policy discussion" on "development aid" in Germany, whether the "African States are at all mature enough" for self-administration and is the "protectorate state" not relevant for some regions? And this happened to be not a discussion somewhere in a "rightist corner" but at a relatively "higher and serious" podium, some 20 years back. That is apparently bearing some fruits today.

A Flash of the Day (Archive)

1. Working on the big "GOOD SENSE": The sense of Beauty.
( via cf. "The Logic of Sense" /Deleuze) (9/2010)

2. በትርታ ይጀምራል፤ ትር ትር ይልና ይተርታል ወይንም ይተረታል ወይንም ተረት ይሆንና ይተረተራል፤ ተረት ይሆናል።(9/2010)

3. Degrading the other to "none-will" is inhuman and counter productive... The human point is to come to a common "Big-Will"(10/2010)

4. The "inner universe" (mystics) to the "outer universe" (physics) is allegorically related as the conscious mind to the virus in the human body. (6/10/2010)

5. Feeling is the language of the "inner Universe". Music/arts is the interface between the "inner" and "outer" universe.

6. Demoralization is a disgusting political tool -an expression of inhumanity employed in a social evolution, indicating the inhumanity of the employer! A disaster! (7/10/2010).

7. "In Girard's language, the law order is "mythical" and as such obeys the logic of the founding murder." (cf. Peter Robert Stork; 2005)

8. "Wenn sich zwei streiten, freut sich der Dritte"/
When two people quarrel, a third rejoices... This will be a legacy; and in the 21st century, "Wenn sich zwei einigen, freut sich der Dritte" may take over. /A mutual understanding of two people rejoices the third/.

9. My quotation of the Day (8.11.10):

Baldwin’s thought: ("The Baldwin effect")
“It is as inexorable as the colour of his eyes and the shape of his nose. He is born into a system of social relationships just as he is born into a certain quality of air. As he grows in body by breathing the one, so he grows in mind by absorbing the other.’ (Baldwin, 1906: 69-70)

10.
If "I AM" the observer (the conscious entity) so that the quanta of matter/mass (the wave function) would collapse to be a particle /the particle object), enhancing IT to the phase of THE Existing Reality.
Couldn't I -The Self- hope and help the spiritual energy/ my consciousness/ as well, to extend the transformed energy /After Life/to collapse into that existence of "THAT Beyond" Life (1). Life pertaining to "intelligent" energy (spiritual beings in the sphere of the Akashic Field), as the reflection of the "intelligent" matter or mass (human beings in the sphere of "thermodynamics" or gravity ). 17.11.10

(1) like J.Wheeler's Model of "the participating observer" in the Universe.

11. Forget Time! And mind Your Mind only (24.11.10).
I.e. "Talk about "time out of mind"!"(1)

12. Wikileaks in Amharic philo-play:

የዊቂ -ሊቅ ሰዋ ስው ...ባልታወቀ ነገር፤ሊቅ ፤ቂል ፤ ቅልቅል ፤ ቅል፤ ቀላል ቂል ወይስ ....በቃኝ ብሎ፤ ቅንጣት ቅብ -ብቅል ቀልቦ ፤ወደ ብቃት ሲቃ፤ ሲግዋዝ ይሁን ፤ ሲያንቀጠቅጥ ወይስ ተቀላቅሎ ሲያንቀለቅል።ያልታወቀ ነገር።

13. Gates and Centres:

Life , nature and actually the whole Universe know nothing about Top and Bottom or Up and Down. There are just centres in reality. Centres and Centres with all of them having their Gates, Gates leading to the Centres. What is wrong with mankind, always with the tick for tops and bottoms or ups and downs and not centres, but fixed to the gates, without the moral courage to move towards the centres -to build the symphony
- the symphony in the SPHERE.

The SPHERE:

- The SPHERE of IDEAS is THE WORD of the SOURCE. THE WORD - The PLAY where this ASHORE and that BEYOND of the HARMONY is eternally tuned to exist in the SYMPHONY of ALL, flowing and floating like in the "Ballet piece of Joseph Strauss " -the Dynamiden Waltz- with every being offering its harmonious "musical touch". (cf. The Harmony Model)

15. Human DIGNITY:

21st century is the era of Liberation Movements for Human Dignity, encompassing all other Movements, to make them superfluous – non-dogmatic, non-religious and non-ethnic with the great Common Collective Will for Human Empathy!
