There Are No Enemies in Death

When bad people are alive, you can oppose them. But as soon as they are gone, they're not your enemies any more. They're just people who once were, but now are not. Memories.

The quote - there are no enemies in death - comes from "Lone Wolf and Cub," a favorite serious of mine. You can see me reviewing a bit of it at the entry "Rule an Empire, Fistful of Rice."

After some mortal enemies is vanquished, the protagonist gives them a respectful burial. When asked why, he explains that there are no enemies in death.

It's easy to get caught up in cheering for one side of history, but your feelings don't affect what's already happened. And strong feelings can easily blind you from figuring out what really happened.

It may not always be possible, but it would be good for you if you can become dispassionate in analyzing long dead eras.

On The Thoughtful Young Djedi from Bermuda

ii Methods

The scope of this investigation is to discover Haile Selassie’s role in the Re-africanization movement[1] in Ethiopia in the 20th century. To carry out this investigation I will use primary and secondary sources. In addition a bibliography will be assembled and attached at the end of the investigation. A considerable amount of research for the bibliography will be carried out using the internet. I have also used an African history book about decolonisation in my research and a speech given by Selassie at a Pan-African meeting. An analysis of these sections will indicate the significance of Selassie’s contribution to the movement and a conclusion will be reached based on what has been derived from the evidence.


Haile Selassie I[2] became emperor of Ethiopia in 1930. Throughout his reign Haile Selassie worked on various economic and social reforms for the progress of his country and people, however Selassie´s most significant work was his actions in helping to achieve a Re-africanization of Ethiopia. He gave Ethiopia its first written constitution in 1931. Nevertheless before he officially was crowned emperor of Ethiopia, he had started to begin re-Africanizing the country.[3]
