THE PAST

http://berhane-aymero.blogspot.com/2010/09/past.html

One can never undo the past. Therefore one has to get acquainted to it positively and inclusively as authentically as possible. Deconstruction (revolution, class struggle etc.) may be a phase in a life process, on the conscious or unconscious highway of “the search for truth”; down deep at the bottom of the spirit to understand or at least to imagine what is at stake. But once so deep to conceive what IT is or can BE, one has to take IT the way it came, as events of time and appraise it critically, unbiased by agency which may prefer to see it otherwise, be it moved by some utilatrian ulterior purpose, or driven by some ideological motives (ex. colonialism, ideology or systems of faith etc) of this or that colour…

In this objective, whithout being in a position to evaluate the authenticity of scholarly reports and documentation, I think the following “blog” has a lot of quite interesting contributions concerning “Ethiopia” and our African Past. It is high time that we attain some sort of self-esteem without claiming any form of “superiority” or any notions of ideologically motivated exclusiveness (ie. being better than this or that or the “other” and the “counterpart”; the concern of nature has never been the point of being better or worse but contention and concerted actions and events to develop by the way of the nuances of differences signifying different qualities; ie. singularities, every single of them in their innate rights and legitimation “to be and become” what they are!), and manifest sovereignty in reflecting on the past, in order to make a breakthrough into the future. Africa and Ethiopia had enough sufferings and require the immediate “light” and “peace” along every line and aspect.
