Eritrea: The March Is On
Eritrea: The March Is On
The wise and farsighted Eritrean leadership have declared that 2015 will be the year for our leap forward in our national building development drive.
Outplayed, outsmarted and outmaneuvered , "The axis of evil", are left with no other option but to use the defunct UNSC to impose the illegal, unjust and immoral sanction resolutions based on fabricated and bogus charges based on lies and deceit to derail our development drive.
Eritrea is undergoing a Renaissance of its own. Political, economic, social, cultural and security transformations are sweeping the Eritrean landscape from coast to coast and from sea to shining sea.
The improvement in the quality of life registered in all Eritrean communities without exception is the pride and glory of the Eritrean nation. Building the Eritrea of our dreams and worthy of our martyrs sacrifices and in Shaebia's image is a work in progress and never ending noble task.
Democracy is a process and not an end in itself. For democracy to flourish certain prerequisites have to be meet and be in place. One of the most primary essentials is the creation of a large vibrant middle class. The W/Y Marshal Plan is designed to solve this and other bottlenecks.
First, a competent and high caliber leadership that is capable of leading and has the ability of listening to the heart beats of the Eritrean masses is a must. The Eritrean leadership possesses these qualities and more.
The leadership is the historical product of the protracted armed struggle. It lives with and among the masses - the masses have a clear understanding of who is who in the leadership and his/her dedication, potential, experience, integrity and sacrifice to the national cause.
Without a progressive leadership, vibrant middle class, a reasonable degree of economic development and a tolerant culture, a revolution is certain to fail. The so called Arab Spring, Flower, Colour, Facebook and Twitter are perfect examples of the failed pseudo-revolutions.
The bold Eritrean nation building experiment gives priority to the disadvantaged areas and communities first - a symmetrical development drive leaving no one behind. With self-reliance as its guiding principle, mutual partnership as its preferred economic practice, the economy is self sustaining and sufficient and doesn't rely totally on aids and handouts.
Construction of giant white elephant projects and prestige buildings and structures are not part of the peoples first based national development drive.
This is in direct contrast to Ethiopia's addiction to economic aids, loans and grants of which 87% of the national budget is foreign aid subsidized and where white elephant projects and prestige structures and buildings are considered as a measure of national development success. When Ethnic Apartheid and Article 39 are brought into the mix , the sustainability of the Ethiopian political nation becomes doubtful and even impossible.
After two decades of nation building experiments in the HOA region, we have a united, progressive, vibrant, assertive, self reliant nation of Eritrea and an Ethiopia which is Balkanized into Ethnic Enclaves and Bantu Lands and a people divided and living in fear, uncertainty, doubt and hopelessness.
Now, we find ourselves on the eve of the economic boom in Eritrea and the end of the reign of terror in Ethiopia. Aside from the economic boom in Eritrea, the restructuring, reorganizing and rectifying processes are ongoing processes in all sectors of the development drive and institutions -be it political, administrative, economic, social, cultural, security..etc...etc.
Whether we like it or not change is coming. The Eritrean revolutionary train is always moving. Those with wisdom, experience, courage, gusto and guts are jumping or are already on the band wagon and are on the drivers seat having the time of their lives and making history on a daily basis. Without to much hoopla and fanfare changes are being implemented keeping the best interest, safety and security of the Eritrean nation and people at heart.
What will happen in Ethiopia is anybody's guess. Ethnic politics which was designed to keep the Tribal Junta in power is institutionalized and is part of the Ethiopian state craft. Correcting the past mistakes and reconciling the population after the heinous crimes committed by the Genocidal regime seems easier said than done.
