Trigger warning! No seriously, if you are not a free thinker and you have been too indoctrinated to accept only the “education” of those who own the information, you might not want to venture too much further than this sentence. Consider this the red pill versus the blue pill moment that Neo had to contemplate
If you have not figured it out by now, the title of this article is meant to be satirical. Actually, it’s more like a joke. Alas not even Eddie Murphy at his apex could conjure up a joke anything like the joke that is our two party system and the utter farce that is the
What I am writing applies to more than just Ethiopians; whenever I write about culture, history or injustices related to my birthplace Ethiopia, it is actually germane to the totality of humanity. After all, we are all interconnected, what robs one people of hope is the same source that steals joys from billions throughout the globe.
Do you know what the greatest equalizer is for us humans apart from death? You can cheat taxes, you can flee from responsibilities, you can even disconnect from society and live off the grid somewhere in Alaska. But one thing no man or woman has been able to dodge is pain. As Marcia Dyson mentioned in the
“Russia’s interference was the crime of the century.” This is the leading header in today’s Washington Post. To call this rubbish hyperbole is a vast understatement; the Washington Post has now officially jumped the shark and has entrenched itself at the forefront of yellow journalism. If this article was written by the National Inquirer or
They say everything happens for a reason. Though at times I’m doubtful of that saying, I believe in its truthiness. Throughout my life, I have encountered multiple things that holistically exposed me to different stages: spiritually, emotionally, physically, and mentally. And during these circumstances, I have learned to lose and win fairly. I was also
Throughout my journey to find truth in this chaotic world of disinformation, I have relied on many different sources. As a “Truther”, I am often drawn to YouTube due to the amount of information that many YouTubers are able to convey in a short amount of time. I don’t normally stop there though. I always

I knew Luke for a short period during his stay in Ethiopia. Together we cleaned and equipped a few rock climbing routes near Addis Ababa. Luke set off in 2012 on a journey from London to Capetown on a 1924 Velocette motorcycle. He had already traveled over 8000 kilometers when he rolled into Addis Ababa.
I write this article for all oppressed people globally and the endless nations who have been victimized by western imperialism and hubris. Though they killed our forefathers and subjugated our ancestors with brute force, they cannot stifle the will of the people and they cannot invert justice in perpetuity. By they, I do not mean
Man! Don’t you just wish there was an app you can download on your phone that would allow you to point at a person and see if they are full of shit? No seriously think about this for a minute. Ladies, imagine if a dude comes up to you with his charm and swagger and
I write this as a fellow human. I am a simple man by most accounts, not a historian or even a trained writer. I am a husband, a father, a United States Air Force veteran six years away from service. By profession I am a pipe fitter, a welder, and a plumber—these are the trades I
“Where words fail; music speaks”. Truer words have not been said than this quote from Hans Christian Andersen.
