Haile Selassie GCTE • GCBTO ; em ge'ez: ኃይለ፡ ሥላሴ, "Poder da Trindade"; Ejersa Goro, 23 de julho de 1892 – Adis Abeba, 27 de agosto de 1975, nascido Tafari Makonnen e posteriormente conhecido como Rás Tafari, foi regente da Etiópia de 1916 a 1930 e imperador daquele país de 1930 a 1974. Herdeiro duma dinastia cujas origens remontam historicamente ao século XIII e, tradicionalmente, até ao Rei Salomão e à Rainha de Sabá, Haile Selassie é uma figura crucial na história da Etiópia e da África.

O termo Ras Tafari de origem Amárica tem o seguinte significado Ras, literalmente significa “cabeça”, é um termo Etíope que é equivalente a príncipe ou chefe. E o nome pessoal Tafari significa quem é respeitado ou temido.

É considerado o símbolo religioso do Deus encarnado, por alguns que interpretam dessa forma entre os adeptos do movimento rastafári, que contava com cerca de 600 mil a 800 mil adeptos em todo o mundo em 2005. Se forem contados naquele ano não só os praticantes da religião, mas também os seguidores do estilo de vida, o número sobe para cerca de dois milhões. Os rastafáris também o chamam de H.I.M., sigla em inglês para "Sua Majestade Imperial" Haile Selassie nunca se colocou como Deus encarnado , e muitos seguidores da filosofia Rastafari o julgam como apenas uma pessoa iluminada que veio para colocar regras e compartilhar seus pensamentos.

"Nós devemos parar de confundir religiosidade e espiritualidade.Religião é um conjunto de regras, regulamentos e ritos criados pelos homens com o objetivo de ajudar a espiritualidade das pessoas , devido a imperfeição do homem a religião tem se tornado corrupta, politica, divisiva e uma ferramenta de força. Espiritualidade não é teologia ou ideologia é simplesmente um modo de vida puro e original dado pelo todo poderoso, espiritualidade é um rede que nos aproxima do todo poderoso, das pessoas e do universo como um todo" Haile Selassie

Durante o seu governo, a repressão a diversas rebeliões entre as raças que compõem a Etiópia, além daquele que é considerado como o fracasso do país em se modernizar adequadamente, rendeu-lhe críticas de muitos contemporâneos e historiadores.

O seu protesto na Liga de Nações, em 1936, contra o uso de armas químicas contra o seu povo por parte da Itália, foi não só um prenúncio do conflito mundial que se seguiria, mas também representou o advento do que se chamou de "refinamento tecnológico da barbárie", característica que veio a marcar as guerras do período.

Selassie era um orador talentoso, e alguns de seus discursos foram considerados entre os mais memoráveis do século XX. As suas visões internacionalistas levaram a Etiópia a tornar-se membro oficial das Nações Unidas, e a sua experiência e pensamento político ao promover o multilateralismo e a segurança coletiva provaram-se relevantes até os dias de hoje.

Citações Haile Selassie

„The true leader is a different sort; he seeks effective activity which has a truly beneficient purpose. He inspires others to follow in his wake, and holding aloft the torch of wisdom, leads the way for society to realize its genuinely great aspirations.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: Leadership does not mean domination. The world is always well supplied with people who wish to rule and dominate others. The true leader is a different sort; he seeks effective activity which has a truly beneficient purpose. He inspires others to follow in his wake, and holding aloft the torch of wisdom, leads the way for society to realize its genuinely great aspirations. Speech on Leadership in Speeches Delivered on Various Occasions, May 1957-December 1959 (1960), p. 138.

„The art of leadership is in the ability to make people want to work for you, while they are really under no obligation to do so. Leaders are people, who raise the standards by which they judge themselves and by which they are willing to be judged.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: The art of leadership is in the ability to make people want to work for you, while they are really under no obligation to do so. Leaders are people, who raise the standards by which they judge themselves and by which they are willing to be judged. The goal chosen, the objective selected, the requirements imposed, are not mainly for their followers alone. They develop with consumate energy and devotion, their own skill and knowledge in order to reach the standard they themselves have set. This whole-hearted acceptance of the demands imposed by even higher standards is the basis of all human progress. A love of higher quality, we must remember, is essential in a leader. Speech on Leadership in Speeches Delivered on Various Occasions, May 1957-December 1959 (1960), p. 138.

„There is no single magic formula, no one simple step, no words, whether written into the Organization's Charter or into a treaty between states, which can automatically guarantee to us what we seek.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: There is no single magic formula, no one simple step, no words, whether written into the Organization's Charter or into a treaty between states, which can automatically guarantee to us what we seek. Peace is a day-to day problem, the product of a multitude of events and judgments. Peace is not an "is", it is a "becoming." We cannot escape the dreadful possibility of catastrophe by miscalculation. But we can reach the right decisions on the myriad subordinate problems which each new day poses, and we can thereby make our contribution and perhaps the most that can be reasonably expected of us in 1963 to the preservation of peace. It is here that the United Nations has served us — not perfectly, but well.

„A house built on granite and strong foundations, not even the onslaught of pouring rain, gushing torrents and strong winds will be able to pull down.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: A house built on granite and strong foundations, not even the onslaught of pouring rain, gushing torrents and strong winds will be able to pull down. Some people have written the story of my life representing as truth what in fact derives from ignorance, error or envy; but they cannot shake the truth from its place, even if they attempt to make others believe it. Preface

„Democracy, republics: What do these words signify?“

— Haile Selassie
Context: Democracy, republics: What do these words signify? What have they changed in the world? Have men become better, more loyal, kinder? Are the people happier? All goes on as before, as always. Illusions, illusions. Besides, one should consider the interest of a nation before subverting it with words. Democracy is necessary in some cases and We believe some African peoples might adopt it. But in other cases it is harmful, a mistake. Interview with Oriana Fallaci in The Chicago Tribune (24 June 1973).

„This age above all ages is a period in history when it should be our prime duty to preach the Gospel of Grace to all our fellow men and women.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: This age above all ages is a period in history when it should be our prime duty to preach the Gospel of Grace to all our fellow men and women. The love shown in Christ by our God to mankind should constrain all of us who are followers and disciples of Christ to do all in our power to see to it that the Message of Salvation is carried to those of our fellows for whom Christ Our Saviour was sacrificed but who have not had the benefit of hearing the good news. Since nobody can interfere in the realm of God we should tolerate and live side by side with those of other faiths. Address to the World Evangelical Congress in Berlin (28 October 1966).

„Education is a means of sharpening the mind of man both spiritually and intellectually. It is a two-edged sword that can be used either for the progress of mankind or for its destruction.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: Education is a means of sharpening the mind of man both spiritually and intellectually. It is a two-edged sword that can be used either for the progress of mankind or for its destruction. That is why it has been Our constant desire and endeavor to develop our education for the benefit of mankind. A qualified man with vision, unmoved by daily selfish interests, will be led to right decisions by his conscience. In general, a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation and you should realize that you will satisfy it if you do good; but if, on the contrary, you do evil, it will lose its hope and its confidence in you. University Graduation address (2 July 1963), published in Important Utterances of H. I. M. Emperor Haile Selassie I, 1963-1972 (1972), p. 22.

„To win the War, to overcome the enemy upon the fields cannot alone ensure the Victory in Peace.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: May it be taken as Divine significance, that, as We mark the passing of the Nazi Reich, in America at San Francisco, delegates from all United Nations, among whose number Ethiopia stands, are now met together for their long-planned conference to lay foundations for an international pact to banish war and to maintain World Peace. Our Churches pray for the successful triumph of this conference. Without success in this, the Victory, We celebrate today, the suffering that We have all endured will be of no avail. To win the War, to overcome the enemy upon the fields cannot alone ensure the Victory in Peace. The cause of War must be removed. Each Nation's rights must be secure from violation. Above all, from the human mind must be erased all thoughts of War as a solution. Then and then only will War cease. V. E. Day proclamation (8 May 1945) http://www.jah-rastafari.com/selassie-words/show-jah-word.asp?word_id=declar_ve.

„In the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of spirit.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: In the mystic traditions of the different religions we have a remarkable unity of spirit. Whatever religion they may profess, they are spiritual kinsmen. While the different religions in their historic forms bind us to limited groups and militate against the development of loyalty to the world community, the mystics have already stood for the fellowship of humanity in harmony with the spirit of the mystics of ages gone by. Words of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, quoted by Haile Selassie in an address http://www.jah-rastafari.com/selassie-words/show-jah-word.asp?word_id=radhakrishan during the Indian President's state visit to Ethiopia (13 October 1965), quoted in Foreign Affairs Record Vol. 11-12 (1965-1966) by India Ministry of External Affairs, p. 266; Radhakrishnan is also quoted as having made these remarks in The Visva-Bharati Quarterly Vol. 5 (1939-1940)

„We have decided to bring to an end the most unequal, most unjust, most barbarous war of our age, and have chosen the road to exile in order that our people will not be exterminated and in order to consecrate ourselves wholly and in peace to the preservation of our empire's independence“

— Haile Selassie
Context: We have decided to bring to an end the most unequal, most unjust, most barbarous war of our age, and have chosen the road to exile in order that our people will not be exterminated and in order to consecrate ourselves wholly and in peace to the preservation of our empire's independence … we now demand that the League of Nations should continue its efforts to secure respect for the covenant, and that it should decide not to recognize territorial extensions, or the exercise of an assumed sovereignty, resulting from the illegal recourse to armed force and to numerous other violations of international agreements. Telegram to the League of Nations on the Second Italo-Abyssinian War (10 May 1936), as quoted in Days of Emperor and Clown : The Italo-Ethiopian War, 1935-1936 (1973) by James Dugan and Laurence Davis Lafore, p. 204.

„The progress of science can be said to be harmful to religion only in so far as it is used for evil aims and not because it claims a priority over religion in its revelation to man. It is important that spiritual advancement must keep pace with material advancement.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: The progress of science can be said to be harmful to religion only in so far as it is used for evil aims and not because it claims a priority over religion in its revelation to man. It is important that spiritual advancement must keep pace with material advancement. When this comes to be realized man's journey toward higher and more lasting values will show more marked progress while the evil in him recedes into the background. Knowing that material and spiritual progress are essential to man, we must ceaselessly work for the equal attainment of both. Only then shall we be able to acquire that absolute inner calm so necessary to our well-being. It is only when a people strike an even balance between scientific progress and spiritual and moral advancement that it can be said to possess a wholly perfect and complete personality and not a lopsided one. Interview in The Voice of Ethiopia (5 April 1948).

„It is my duty to inform the Governments assembled in Geneva, responsible as they are for the lives of millions of men, women and children, of the deadly peril which threatens them, by describing to them the fate which has been suffered by Ethiopia.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: It is my duty to inform the Governments assembled in Geneva, responsible as they are for the lives of millions of men, women and children, of the deadly peril which threatens them, by describing to them the fate which has been suffered by Ethiopia. It is not only upon warriors that the Italian Government has made war. It has above all attacked populations far removed from hostilities, in order to terrorize and exterminate them.

„Since nobody can interfere in the realm of God we should tolerate and live side by side with those of other faiths.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: This age above all ages is a period in history when it should be our prime duty to preach the Gospel of Grace to all our fellow men and women. The love shown in Christ by our God to mankind should constrain all of us who are followers and disciples of Christ to do all in our power to see to it that the Message of Salvation is carried to those of our fellows for whom Christ Our Saviour was sacrificed but who have not had the benefit of hearing the good news. Since nobody can interfere in the realm of God we should tolerate and live side by side with those of other faiths. Address to the World Evangelical Congress in Berlin (28 October 1966).

„The preservation of peace and the guaranteeing of man's basic freedoms and rights require courage and eternal vigilance: courage to speak and act — and if necessary, to suffer and die — for truth and justice; eternal vigilance, that the least transgression of international morality shall not go undetected and unremedied.
These lessons must be learned anew by each succeeding generation, and that generation is fortunate indeed which learns from other than its own bitter experience.“

— Haile Selassie
Context: The Charter of the United Nations expresses the noblest aspirations of man: abjugation of force in the settlement of disputes between states; the assurance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion; the safeguarding of international peace and security. But these, too, as were the phrases of the Covenant, are only words; their value depends wholly on our will to observe and honour them and give them content and meaning. The preservation of peace and the guaranteeing of man's basic freedoms and rights require courage and eternal vigilance: courage to speak and act — and if necessary, to suffer and die — for truth and justice; eternal vigilance, that the least transgression of international morality shall not go undetected and unremedied. These lessons must be learned anew by each succeeding generation, and that generation is fortunate indeed which learns from other than its own bitter experience. This Organization and each of its members bear a crushing and awesome responsibility: to absorb the wisdom of history and to apply it to the problems of the present, in order that future generations may be born, and live, and die, in peace.
