Let Us Be Decent at Least as Much as Wolves!

By Belayneh Abate

Albert Camus, the French philosopher, and writer once said, “for 20 centuries, the total number of evils has not diminished in the world*”. I must add that the number and the cruelty of evil has reached its climax in Ethiopia in this 21st century.

When I grew up, people used to feel devastated and cry even when they learn about the death of their adversaries. Communities used to respect dead bodies the way they respect the Tabot (the Ark) resting on the head of a priest during holiday celebrations such as Epiphany. When they encounter an unknown dead body carried on a stretcher on the way to burial, they used to stop and bow, cry in tears, expresses their sympathy to the families of the dead, and let the carried dead body pass before they continue their journey. What we witness now is not just heart breaking, but it propels us to compare beasts with humans.

I have seen a wolf devouring a lamb, but I have never seen groups of wolves expressing their happiness in different forms including in singing and dancing when the other wolve devoured the lamb. Although the world including many Ethiopians have ignored it, groups of evils have been massacring and displacing Amaras from the different parts of their own country. When the evils devour the unarmed innocent Amaras including infants, pregnant women and the elderly, the supporters of evils express their happiness in different forms including in ecstatic selfie pictures, songs, and dances.

This fact shows that the “human” beasts are far worse than the animal beasts. Furthermore, it teaches that the lambs should NOT expect any shred of mercy from the devouring wolves and their cheering supports. The lambs should promptly realize this unfortunate fact and sharpen their horns to fight back and ensure their existence.

At a time when dogs are evolving to humans and are trained to drive cars, some people remain at the beast stage of evolution, and some have devolved from humans to beasts. Groups of wolves DO NOT express immense happiness in ecstatic selfies, songs, and dances when their fellow wolves devour lambs. Let us be decent at least as much as wolves. Thank you.

Woe to amhara elites, fanos and their supporters. It is better to prepare yourselves now and enter gonder, pit of robbers and killers . Bahir Dar belong to Oromia, told renowned Historian.

    We have fed up feeding amhara elites who took refuge in Oromia, blessed with all sorts of gifts of nature, golden land.
    It is friendly remark and note left to you all, better leave now!!
    Go and cherish your barren land , amhara kilil and gather your people from all over the world and make it great again!!NO more begging in Oromia!!Amhara land is falsely termed as land of honey and butter in the book of amhara elites but we have 40 million amhara in Oromia chewing and exploting fruits our fertile land.

    1. The author said: “Let Us Be Decent at Least as Much as Wolves!”

      Well, the extremely low level of intelligence of those like the person who wrote here the “Reply to Eritreans out of Oromia” is exactly the reason why any decency – even that of dumb Wolves – is very much impossible!

  2. A replay to the above comment, if a person is evil by nature , even he/she is educated or lives in a civilized society he/she acts like animal beast.This guy is a very sick person who spit his ethnic poison in the society, to cut the social fabric of the country.
