With me at UWC they did this to Haile Selassie glory: “Niccolo
Machiavelli (1469-1527) an Italian politician and political
philosopher. After a frustrated political career Machiavelli turned to writing. His best book known are “The Prince” (1513) and “Discourse” (1514). In the Prince he argues, even though leaders should appear virtuous and honorable, the successful ruler is the person who acts without regard for conventional morality. Rulers should do what ever it takes to preserve liberty and economic glory on behalf of the state, this makes state survival a value in its self”. I think he is supporting Emperor Haile Selassie. HIM is divine mighty ruler forever, ambushes don’t work. Nobody can over throw HIM Royalness. HIM is the most high.
Also Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is our father he is good. My life is good so far because of leaders like him. With moral leadership Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki did well but as its an inclusive democracy depending on majority choice more people lack education to inform their choice for the better.
Our nation is set for accountability. We have a great constitutional democracy.
Our constitutional democracy is strong, its people through hardwork will always find ways to keep it well. Our democracy empowers everyone.
As Iam a liberal ideal Rastafarian I find that Dr Joelien Pretorius
together with Kenny Bafo they did this to me in rememberance of the battle of the Adwa, were with Haile Selassie in charge Ethiopia defeated Benito Musolini when Italy tried to invade Ethiopia.
With Mengistu Haile Mariam defeat it was just because of Emperor Haile Selassie ignorance at its best.
In the 1960 Mandela got arrested for 27 years when he went to leaders like Selassie for military help and support.
Eversince the organisation of Africa in the 1960s, leaders like
Haile Selassie, Kwame Nkruma, etc even while South Africa was not free, with Nelson Mandela going to meet them for support, then get jailed, in significance Africa and the world had to wait for him till he was released on the 1990s. He peacefully freed our nation for democracy, for that then we can all say we are free. So these leaders are effective in their rule.
So the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) was not well organised, because South Africa was not free from apartheid. Until it came to civilised decision. Starting a new free democratic nation that we can enjoy as Africans. Our people did well to recognise the accomplishment. Even Thabo Mbeki became the first chairperson when in 2001 the OAU became the African Union (AU). Thats what goodness consideration ruling does. Its about sharing rules. In the world we have reached foundation of our best interest for solution. They will always stand over. Lets deal with it ignorance never really helps. We can never abandon available good ways of doing things. That even caught up with South Africa the last nation to be liberated in Africa.
All these leaders I have mentioned above have proved that
conventional morality does work, in that field they have been
distinct, they have lead us right. I think I am patient with our
nation and African rule.
