Fetsum: A violent man dies a violent death
Of all types of political structures, absolute monocracy offers the biggest threat to society. Dictators are basically children that cannot function without someone constantly reminding them of their greatness. They quickly get angry and they honestly wonder why people do not blindly follow them when they navigate their nations to the cliff. Their stubborn nature does not allow them to see all possibilities to a given scenario; only their principle, a principle-not that can hardly define issues precisely.
Dictators generally resolve issues through different means of violence, but the extremists see no other alternative to killing. Although their ranks may differ from one another, human experiences under PelPot of Cambodia, Idi Amin of Uganda, Stalin of Russia, Hitler of Germany, Afwerki of Eritrea and Mengistu of Ethiopia are good examples of this conclusion.
The generic psychology behind the mind of dictators is simple and direct. They think they know everything: they are the best doctors, engineers, economists, anthropologists, historians, philosophers, etc. They are megalomaniac fundamentalists of their little individualist worlds: expensive economic, spiritual and technological burdens of society. Their ego does not allow public participation but only the power of the fist to control and silence the society under their mercy. They are the worst losers of opportunities. They ask questions like ‘Who do you think they are to defy authority?’ without questioning who they really think they were to expect people unconditionally accepting their authority. They do not understand that people do not resist authority unless defiance becomes the only solution for freedom from absolute dictatorship.
Dictators never admit their mistakes and they think they are always right. They don’t like to hear different opinions and they habitually lie but in “free rider style”, meaning they cannot stand others questioning their lies. The farther away from prolific existence by choosing to oppress and humiliate, the more they isolate themselves from the drained masses, and the stronger they deny themselves the freedom of movement and peace of mind. As they continue to slave for their power, the time eventually arrives when they cannot even keep their closest supporters around: their images become their only means of comfort. That may also betray them when they wake up one day to see someone across the mirror reflecting another person. The image is no longer the good looking, the everlasting and the ultimate human potential they used to see, but a lonely and scared ordinary person: an impermanent omnipotent in regressive legacy. Life had slipped away on body counts, dirty money and polishing the gun as it seems about the current situation of the brutal Eritrean dictator.
People may misunderstand nature for something controllable by human beings. It is, however, clear and perfect. It does not discriminate people, it treats them equally: if you breach human rights you lose your right and if you kill you get killed. The stronger the attachment to the self, the more terrified one becomes of dying. No one can be more afraid of death than self-obsessed dictators, the reason they cling to their power in the first place. The selflessness and patriotism they pretend to the public clash with history that persistently locates them in unexpected hideouts. They have no spiritually governed mind to be selfless but egoistic images that betray them when everything falls apart at the end of the day. They cannot even deliver a bullet of justice to themselves as they appear to be capable of doing all along before their downfall, but rather get caught in the most humiliating circumstances. Little do they know about mortality nor do they clearly understand the consequence of their evil activities. To the contrary, they act as if life was permanent and in control of their lives. They are brittle because “power over others is weakness disguised as strength” and that the best way to express loss of self control is through intense urge to control others. This logic applies to all controlling people in general.
The nature of dictatorship is such that it stays potent for a long time for many reasons. People have the tendency to accept it at first thinking it would solve their problems associated with their past experience. It probably takes about 10 years for society to start feeling the nature of a new government as such where some oppose it and some keep on supporting it. As dictators take the people for granted and continue messing up everything in society, the supporters slowly drift away becoming neutral observers of the situation until the suffering hits home. Then, the opposition grows becoming the majority. About 20 years after dictatorship, everything about the oppressors should have been manifested in different ways; from arrogance to insults, from corruption to mismanagement, from random arrests to random killings, etc. Yet the illusive confidence of the dictators increases proportionally.
Nothing stays permanent, however, and everything falls apart at the end of the day. This is what is happening in Eritrea at this moment in time. They abused every social norm and everybody in the society, they rendered kids parentless, they raped our young daughters, terminated lives illegally and unjustly, jailed in thousands and created incalculable suffering through wars and exodus. Alas, they went as far as denying Eritrea veterans of the struggle a place of rest in their country, confronted God by jailing Christian believers and went on messing with Allah as in the latest episode against our culture and our believers of Islam. The dictatorship has reached a saturation point where it can neither reverse the situation through reforms and redemption nor can it continue through force and regret after abusing every family one way or another. The time for their karma to radiate its unfortunate consequence has arrived. It is now up to the Eritrean people to fuel the internal resistance through massive demonstrations around the world in the midst of refusing to unite for change. This is the time to tighten the rope in the neck of the violent dictator who will soon die a violent death. This is indeed the time to carry our responsibility of securing a peaceful and prosperous future, of attaining justice so never for our society to repeat the unprovoked brutality it suffered for close to three decades. At this juncture where the dictator is about to face his imminent downfall through the challenge of our exhausted people, the least we can do is electing local baytos everywhere in the planet this November so that we can secure democracy in the country through mass based global leadership. Get prepared for unknown future otherwise and good luck.
