Ethnocracy means 'government or rule by a particular ethnic group' or ethnosDemocracy means ‘rule by the demos or the people in general.’ Therefore, Democracy denotes power to the people. Ethiocracy denotes power to the people of Ethiopia.

TPLF/EPRDF’s Ethnic Federalism (Zenawism), a formula designed to deconstruct Ethiopia is the root cause of Ethiopia’s problems and is the wrong system for a country of 86 ethnic groups that speak over 123 languages. The alternative, Ethiocracy advocates knowledge based economy that plans to relegate Ethiopia’s dependency syndrome to the dustbin of history. Ethiocracy offers equal opportunity of education as the great equalizer for all 86 ethnic groups. The ability to read and write being the first step in human development, we need to enrich all our languages by using the Ge’ez alphabet for all the languages of Ethiopia.

Ethiopia’s gorgeous mosaic is best exemplified by the spirit of unity in diversity that serves our common good. We are stronger together. When we are indivisible, we will be invincible. ብዙ ሆነን አንድ የሚያደርገን ኢትዮጵያዊነታችን ነው። ለኢትዮጵያውያን ልዩነታችን ጌጣችን እና የፈጠራ ምንጫችን ሲሆን፣ አንድነታችን ኃይላችን ነው። Therefore, we need to mandate a citizen-based politics, promote competition of ideas, and disallow the formation of political parties based on religious and ethnic identity.

Ethiocracy looks forward to build a new Ethiopia under a new citizen-based civic nationalism with greater ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity for all.
