Effective Policies Emanating From a Just Cause
Mar 21, 2009, 10:09
The visions and policies of the EPLF are not direct copies from well-known philosophies and theories of the world but are rather formulated through taking a critical stock of various viewpoints and practical experiences from around the globe and creating a system that serves the spiritual and material wishes of the people.
Based on this outlook, the Government of Eritrea shunned the prevailing culture of obedience and dependence among third world countries that is hindering them from meaningful development and political independence and chose to pursue its own independent political and economic path. Unaware of and unprepared for the hard work awaiting them after raising the flag of freedom, a number of African nations have now been plunged into an inescapable quagmire. Quickly picking up on the dangers of the culture of dependence promoted by aid, the Government of Eritrea adopted its own policies regarding this issue. Today, recognizing its effectiveness many countries are emulating the Eritrean government's policy.
Clearly conscious of its responsibility to lay the foundation for cultivating a just and civilized society, the EPLF chose to pursue a strategy that would secure the people's vision in practical terms and in so doing pointed out that living through one's own sweat is the best and right way. Hence the Eritrean government set out to secure national development by instilling a strong sense of work ethics among the youth based on the principle of self-reliance. Giving due importance to the curial role of the government in realizing national development, the Eritrean government outlined development plans through which government bodies could direct and add impetus to the ongoing efforts. Moreover, the government had also followed an economic policy that favored efficient utilization of resources over unnecessary wastage and extravagance. In the midst of today's global economic crisis, the effectiveness of the Eritrean government's policies have not only been proven right but even those who had initially made dero
gatory remarks regarding these policies in the name of free-market have been forced to acknowledge their efficacy.
The EPLF's political and economic philosophies were thus not aimed at alienating the country from the international community as some had suggested but rather enabling Eritreans to participate as independent and self-reliant partners in the world community. At the time when the Eritrean government made it clear that it will not simply adopt all the policies and philosophies generated to suit the interests of the exploiting powers, certain so-called experts ventured to mock such a firm stand. But the Eritrean government chose to take it all in stride and everyone can see that the policies adopted to serve the nation-building process were indeed right. Effective policies emanating from a just cause!
