Bro, I feel you.
Balager is an insult in Ethiopia, but it should not be. Anyhow, I like classify people based on their intelectual capacity and respecting their fellow humanbeing. Civil society means, a society which has big respect to human life period.
I am sure we ethiopians need cultrular revolution, because we have been far from the reality the last 3000years and still we are beating the same dead horse and immune to embrace advanced and modern cultrue. I am not generally belitinling our cultrue, but we have bad and good, then we need to discarded the bad one and strengthen the good one.
Do not forget, individual right and freedom speech are the core to build democry in our country.
Tamagne is a simple entertainer and he can say anything as he does not cause physical damage.
Thanks for your response, but we are talking about Ethiopian culture here, not about America. Anyways, I see your point that Tamagne is just an entettainer, and generally entertainers have a loose-tounge. But some times "entertainer Azmaris" like Tamagne may land on trouble in some conservative areas where "Regim Melas" is not tolerated.
Yes I agree with you that the Lasta peasants are determined fighters for their rights, but I am not sure that they like the "a loose tounge Azmari" like Tamagne.
You don't deserve a response.
