Understanding the "New" Youth

Understanding the new youth: Interesting...

If you have observed some of the clips in the "Tunisian Popular Uprising" these days, the youth is its undisputed pillar, like it was no doubt four decades ago in Ethiopia - unfortunately without any prior precedence and indigenous national political experience, with the disasterous outcome as we know, for all the protagonists and the people in the final effect. When one day Ethiopia comes to the pleasure of hosting such a change towards an enlightened social order, it is of paramount significance understanding the new youth appropriately; and the sooner the better - The new youth, which has today fortunately a lot of prior experiences at its disposal (*1 albeit failures at several levels, from which it can learn and nurture its political course, if only it is ready to invest its moral and intellectual courage in the due reflections, at the latest beginning from today (2*.

The following article of "Addis Neger"
Addis Neger 15.01.2011:

የጠፋው ትውልድ [አንድ ለቅዳሜ]

is interesting in this perspective. All the more, respect for beginning the reflection, at this time, when the so-called "Ya tiwlid" is still employing its "ostrich play of hiding its head in the sand" by refraining to make an overall thorough critic of its political past, depicting the undisputed commitment of the generation and their eventual failings behind an "epic" of misleading "heroism" and instrumentalized "activism".

In this context I made some remarks in my "Notes on Identty Politics", to save the new generation from making a new "roll out" of debate on the "national question", which I believe today, in post-modern politics of Ethiopia is somehow anachronistic, unless it has the usual purpose of "utility" to employ it for the further consolidation of the ethnic based autocratic regime of Melesse. Since "
the problem in my opinion is not "identity politics" or anything of that sort", but "a problem of the Ethiopian political LEFT", ......" The Left, ....has to clear all the turmoil and the mess of its past ideological infantilism, to dare and make a political RENAISSANCE to go forward into post-modernity, where a healthy and peaceful political interaction with the rest of the political spectrum in the Ethiopian state would be inaugurated. " This would only be a sign of maturity and there is nothing wrong with defining one's political position to be "leftist" in the political spectrum of the Ethiopian State, which for sure has still a tremendous room for it, with so much unresolved in the social perspective of our community.

This would be a big contribution and it could save the "New Youth" a lot of energy and intellect if this takes place ...

"...in this passion and sovereignty, it would have been a big step forward, a new beginning and a process of a political catharsis towards a modern political culture etc. if the discussion were of the following nature like:-

1. The Left as a whole made this and that mistake.
2. This or that section made this or that perceptual and conceptual errors.
3. The nationalists (ethno) are in this or that aspect by proxy counter to their own national interest.
4. The left was and is this sort of a social category historically incapable of this and that.
5. Politically conscious or not, as a matter of fact instrumentalized by these or those international social and political forces.
5. This and that pragmatic position was immature and full of insufficient reflection.
6. The military was this and that kind of social force unable to resolve this or that problem.
7. The left and the right could have been allied in this and that common interest of national caliber. etc...
8. The right political sector was and is parasitic and was doomed not to be sovereign in this and that aspect.
9. This or that social, psychological, cultural and economic foundations of these and those forces are products of this or that social evolution and …and.....
10. Specially the evolution of the "Ethiopian State" supported by facts and actors, how these mosaic of cultures and peoples could build a vibrating future under this or that form of state;
what failed and not etc.........................
11. Whither Ethiopia, suffering and coming out of the fake "internationalism" of a defunct Leninist dogma and its contemporary agency; with Ethiopia, as a victim of the globalization of the new form of colonialism; with the new one party system inaugurated after the "2010" election farce. etc. etc.. (cf. http://berhane-aymero.blogspot.com/2010/08/note-on-identity-politics.html)

*1) By far not adequate, since the "synthesis" is missing, but valuable - Prof. Bahru Zewde's Paper - "Documenting the Ethiopian Left: Workshop on Oral History of the Ethiopian Student Movement" can be an initial source of discourse.

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)

14. መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ /+++ተጨማሪ!/


መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ (ከርፖርተር የተገኘ)


ጥብቅ ማሳሰቢያ ሸክላን ለምትሠሩ፤
እዚህ መቃብር ላይ አፈር አትዝገኑ፡፡
ሲነድ ሲቃጠል ሲጨስ በመኖሩ፣

ሲቃጠል ለሚኖር፣
ለጀበና መሥሪያ አይሆንም አፈሩ፡፡

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!

11 0220 11 - EGYPT's Dignity Day, the Landmark for a radical break with all Tyrannies!

Thanks to Tunisia -The Heroic Pioneer of Freedom!

እንደዚህ ሆነና ...እስኪሆን ይሆናል!
