From Latin to Qubee to LAGM to Fidel

What is happening to the Oromo people in Ethiopia is not a NEW story; it is a new chapter in an OLD story. In essence, all the past failures of imperial policies attempting to transform Oromo into assimilated “Ethiopians” now seems redesigned by the federal government in a major effort at social engineering under the guise of an educational policy roadmap.

Not a single Oromo soul will vouch for the return of imperial Ethiopia through the backdoor. On issues of land, (self) leadership and language, there is only one Oromo party: the Oromo. On other issues, you may be able to obfuscate, obscure or obstruct. On this one, the Emperor Has No Clothes.

Fold it or Face it.

The mental faculty of primary school children doesn’t do right in simultaneously learning more than two languages at such early developmental stage of their mind, says Dr Firdiisaa Jabeessaa, a professor of linguistics at AAU.

Given this scientifically valid point, why should the kids in Oromia add a third language course, Amharic, to their plate while they have the opportunity to do it better later in the course of their primary or secondary school studies, if they need it—esp so when forcing these children by the federal-gov’t-driven policy provision won’t be reciprocated by other states within the Ethiopian federation?

If students learn English from early age [grade 1] across entire Ethiopia, why are we so concerned about communicating to each other? English will be our communication language just like any other African country[also to communicate with Africans]. We can use our native languages with each other and English with outside world and with each other.

Improve English education in Ethiopia to solve language problem in the country. Look how the so called ministers and OPDOs speak in English after going through 15 years of English education, they all are rubbish

Amharic Speaking People are not necessarily Amhara People

Ethiopia has engaged in state sponsored expansion of Amharic and Christianity for over 100years, while banning other languages from public use and dismissing other beliefs as backward or satanic. The assumption was that the two identities can glue different nations and nationalities together and ensure the success of the assimilation policy in Ethiopia.

Fortunately/unfortunately, this policy did not succeed fully. But that doesn’t mean there are no people who were affected by the policy. There are millions of people from different nations and nationalities who adopted Amharic as their only language and Christianity as their religion in Ethiopia. That is okay. But defining everyone who speak Amharic and follow Christianity as Amhara today is ignoring the impact of the assimilation policy.

It is also ignoring a century long history of the country. Moreover, it wasn’t the question of the people in the first place. In general, any plan/claim/dream of creating administrative unites/region/country solely based Amharic and Christianity is a plan/dream of extending the already tired and failed assimilation policy in the country.

No?
