A Short Note on Ethiopian Political Change in Systemic Thinking
Social relations and the nature of conflict in a community (family, community or state etc.) are, according to Alexander Wendt, characterized by the sense of perception as enemies (Hobbesian), rivals (Lockean) & friends (Kantian).
But I would add “The other”, which has to be utterly “new” or looks like substantially different for all the formers. I.e. it, the subject in the social dynamics looks like neither an enemy nor a rival or a friend. There lies the wisdom of peaceful struggle; autonomous and sovereign like “the state”, the healthy one; – multidimensional and not polarizing the agents of a social community. The phenomenon of conflict and violence comes later in the day; during degeneration, if that happens to come sooner or later!To bring about and for “the other” to emerge; in the system, the seeds of “the other” have to be structurally constituted and develop.
