In principle, good and bad actors love the stage. But while good
actors share the stage, bad actors hog it for themselves. The same
goes for writers and those politicians with agendas. A good writer,
for example, will know plenty of history, literature, geography, and
hopefully, a few proverbs by heart. A bad write will discuss “ode to a
Grecian urn” and be unable to say what the significance of Arcady is.
A good politician will discuss the pressing issues and the way he will
encounter them and hopefully, will emphasize that there will be not
only victories but failures also. A bad politician with an agenda will
promise the sky during campaign trails and be unable to deliver it
after the election
Those writers who hail Siilaanyo as a hero who has the qualities and
capabilities to lead Somaliland people aright are nothing but bad
writers and even worse. They are afraid of anything that might result
in people seeing through theirs charades.
Reality teaches logic – and logic, in its simplest form, is common
sense. There is nothing more lethal to an exclusionist than the power
of common sense. Keeping humans in dark is never successful for long.
Instinctive common sense made humans come out of dark ages and look
beyond them. Were this is not so, people would still be in caves,
granted that some of us are still in caves, but what about those in
mental caves who still ignore the concept that one’s rights end right
where someone else’s begin.
Reality, as a practical discipline, tells us today that there are many
different indicators of the moral health of the country of Somaliland–
how the affairs of this poor country are run. At the macro level of
sober statistics, we have crisis, deep differences, and clashes of
what is constitutionally right and what is not, what is lawful and
what is not. .
First and foremost, the crisis we have is the fact that the affairs of
the country are run by egoism, an egoism that knows no respect or
restrictions or self-reputation, an egoism that aims not even to try
to see, first of all, what units all Somaliland people and makes all
of them part of one whole.
Everyday, we hear countless declarations – clans condemning
Siilaanyo’s ruling behavior, and others demeaning him for his
policies. The question arises: what is the explanation for such
condemnations? This shows that Siilaanyo is flat and does not totally
fit for the work, presidency to put it on its won pretext.
The moral of this article is: When there is righteousness in the
heart, there is beauty in the
character, when is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the
home, when there harmony in the home, there is order in the nation,
where is order in the nation, there is peace in the country.
