The Legacy blocking the Emergence

The legacy is playing the primary role in the discussion below, blocking the emergence of "the  new":



(Extract from my notes  on the point of our political legacy)

The big obstacle for the emergence of the New is
the legacy of the Ethiopian political class

Every section has to consult its "political wisdom and conscience" from the vantage point of the aftermath, which renders us all a "better mind", in the new collective mind of the new political world! 

The global relation of forces have changed, the "cold war" is over, more than five decades have elapsed since the initial aspirations for a substantial change of the Ethiopian political system ever came in the minds of the protagonists; and we, including Ethiopia are in the 21st century! 

IT IS HIGH TIME we "arrive in the future“!
Let us come out of the box! 

The more we wait and live in the "blockade" the more time it takes to come to the Ethiopian NEW Era of Enlightenment against autocracy! In this aspect the old generation is especially deeply indebted to the new generation, so that the latter makes a real new beginning and renaissance! Progress comes more through learning from past failings rather than narrating once own saga and epic a hundred times to worship the presumable self-honored "heroic" deeds. Let THIS be the task of the far-would-be generation...to come.

Basic Inquiries:

       The Political Left:  What were the political blunders common to the whole legacy left!?

2.      The Feudal class/aristocracy and Monarchy:  What explains the political substance of this class in its specific Ethiopian context of the past and in the aftermath of Absolute Monarchy?

3.      The Political Right: What was the collective role and historical failings of the political "right" / the classical conservative section of the Ethiopian political landscape?

4.      Middle class – Where and how was / the Ethiopian middle class to be positioned in the Ethiopian political spectrum? Why were their presumable political representatives’ dormant or conspicuously inactive or lacking political moral courage in the past? Can they be represented today by the whole spectrum of the contemporary "opposition" parties? How authentically democratic and independent are they from the legacy active "groups" - their ideologies and political outlooks?

These stratifications of the social body are predominantly common objective products of our specific social evolution, with all the factors and functions of our own history prevailing in the context of the centuries-old Ethiopian socio-economic reality.

Perspective & Vision

Today, even after more than three decades of social evolution, in the aftermath of absolute monarchy, the tenor of the political landscape has not substantially changed and the Ethiopian political spectrum as a whole is highly loaded with the above legacy. Therefore the stalemate to make a real change and a new beginning; giving enough room and opportunity for the reign of autocracy!

There would be no substantial progress and a down-to-earth political reconciliation towards an authentic post-modernist democratic world-outlook in the political platform of the Ethiopian political class unless the essential legacy blunders of the Ethiopian political past (be it left or right oriented in the nationwide political spectrum) are reiterated and explicitly declared as political failings without any distinction and relativizing qualifications!(2*. I.e. Unequivocally and clearly specified to be chucked out for good to initiate a thorough renovation in the construction of a politically New Democratic Ethiopia – the Perspective & Vision – with the whole political spectrum (from the radical right through the center to the radical left playing their roles and defining their positions) with clear political distinctions and possible alliances like all healthy democratic communities all over the globe!

(1*  I know that it is simple to pretend wiser in the aftermath. But I know too that every section has its blunders and it doesn't get us forward if every section raises its finger to the other - "the other" - the "initial evil" -always looking for  "the scapegoat". 
In this context I remember what used to be said way back in 1968 at the summit of the HSI University student movement. During a stalemate in the student uprising, delegates were sent to the Emperor to present their cases. The Emperor in his customary calm plural form, asked the delegates: 
 " Now you young men & women ; whose failing is taking place these days: "Yours" or "Ours"?
/"Inante gena tadagi lijoch nachihu, lemehonu, yatefanew egna nen weis inante ?" 
እናንተ ታዳጊ ልጆች ናችሁ ለመሆኑ ያጠፋነው፦እኛ ነን ወይስ እናንተ? /
To this challenging inquiry one of the delegates, it is said, responded, in the following form: 
"Your imperial majesty, neither You nor We made the mistakes, but it is "The TIME"'s error " -  
"Janihoy, Tifategnaw ignam irswom aydelum, tifategnaw gizew new"
„ጃንሆይ ጥፋተኛው እኛም እርስዎም አይደሉም፦ ጥፋተኛው ጊዜው ነው!“
 and managed to escape the challenge and incrimination.

 Nonetheless,in my perception, I know that the Political Left  has the following failings:

Ideologically dogmatic, devoid of Ethiopian-nationalist pragmatism; unaware of statehood – the Ethiopian state formation.  A political blunder common to the whole legacy left (whether consciously or unconsciously instrumentalized by alien forces as "destabilizing agency" or as a political novice unaware of such an important political parameter like "the state")!

AND this is what is being fundamentally reflected in the following Dialogue, between the two corners:


(2* Once the legacy problems and failings of the political past are clarified and as long as they are politically interpreted in a transparent manner,  mutual trust  would develop and every protagonist would be taken at his own contemporary face value and new or old mind; without any form of backdoor incrimination alluding to the past!

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)

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 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)
