Polis Many thinkers point to the concept of citizenship beginning in the early city-states of ancient Greecealthough others see it as primarily a modern phenomenon dating back only a few hundred years and, for humanity, that the concept of citizenship arose with the first laws. Polis meant both the political assembly of the city-state as well as the entire society. It can be argued that this growth of slavery was what made Greeks particularly conscious of the value of freedom.
Do u think they will remain as part of ethiopia? Teodros Alem Selam fanti Thank u. Non of the three guys shows hostility to eritrea according to the Citizen paper. All of them talked about peace with eri and ethio.
Our forefathers already stated libi tigray tweyway. Mind you, it is not the policy but the organization and sometimes even the people that are targeted.
As it is the case with all dictators, one of the methods PFDJ uses to control Eritreans is by ensuring their isolation. Dictators not only keep their nations isolated and create an atmosphere of suspicion among the people but also they keep them in constant fear and busy with innuendos hopping to create a docile society.
In either case it is a temporary and an artificial one. It will disappear along with its creators, a handful of politicians; because the relationship between the two peoples is written literally in the Citizen paper and they are interdependent.
However, it is not PFDJ alone that should be blamed for all of our regional ills. EPRDF is not a saint either. Although there are many aspects I support it for, some of its policies are shortsighted, egotistical, and vindictive especially toward Eritrea.
Teodros Alem Selam fanti Halafi me n gedi stupid q is amazing, r u guys forget tplf and eritrea have been at war since ? I mean after u solve the problem evacuate from occupied territories and after than u can talk about the relation between eri and tigraithat is the normal way to coexist in peace with ur neighbor.
The twisted way put u and the whole region in a mess. Early on the gov of Eritrea tried to frame it as was between Tigray and Eritrea and they repeated to much, they start believing it ever since to wedge division in Ethiopia and prevent most Ethiopians from supporting the war.
It failed, of course, as the other Ethiopians were actually more enthusiastic to fight against Eritrea ex, the war to capture assab, which of course was miserable failure, was pushed on by hardliners in ANDM, OPDP and the likes of gebru asrat from tplf.
Also, my reading from social media is that, amharas are in general the ones that are more against any concession when it comes to badme again possibly as bargaining chip for assab or sea access than tigrayans.
My point is that unlike the ridiculous claim by gov of Eritrea, the war was decisively between Ethiopia practically all of it and Eritrea, and same goes for the current stalemate.
The reporters used to tell how eritrea become no.
Try to read the reporter amharic news paper of that time month before the badema war break out. Not only andm and opdo, but most Ethiopians too. And after the war, a lot of Ethiopians of different ethnic groups have more hawkish attitude towards Eritrean than the current position of the government of Ethiopia.
Even now, to me it looks like, it is some tigrayans that want the Ethiopian gov to do more to resolve the situation more than other ethnic groups in Ethiopia. This is not based on scientific survey or some detain analysis, just my observation based on some social media and some in person conversations.
To get back to my original question, it is not clear to me why many eritreans especially pfdj ppl are so fixated tplf and see tplf more dangerous to eeritrea than other groups in Ethiopia.
Meaning, the further the dominant politically Ethiopian ethnic from Asmara, the better the Ethio-Eritrean relation would be. THey always has their own definition of Eritrean independence and their own definition of Eritrean Territorial Integrity. Therefore it is a no brainer for them to chose one at any given time.
And the Woyanes have their own definition of Ethio-Eritrean relation. Any empirical examples or solid assumptions or mechanism?Senior Moments Blog What Are Deputyships? An Explanation.

Selam Bilien Giorgis, What all ethiopians want today is to make sure that history is not repeat by other actors, and the old system is gone once forever. Can You Vote Absentee?
