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.

„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).

„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.

„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.

„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)

„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

„I, Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia, am here today to claim that justice which is due to my people, and the assistance promised to it eight months ago, when fifty nations asserted that aggression had been committed in violation of international treaties.“

—  Haile Selassie
Context: I, Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia, am here today to claim that justice which is due to my people, and the assistance promised to it eight months ago, when fifty nations asserted that aggression had been committed in violation of international treaties. There is no precedent for a Head of State himself speaking in this assembly. But there is also no precedent for a people being victim of such injustice and being at present threatened by abandonment to its aggressor.

„Leadership does not mean domination.“

—  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.

„Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will;
Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven;
Until that day, the African continent will not know peace.“

—  Haile Selassie
Context: On the question of racial discrimination, the Addis Ababa Conference taught, to those who will learn, this further lesson: That until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned: That until there are no longer first-class and second class citizens of any nation; That until the colour of a man's skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes; That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race; That until that day, the dream of lasting peace and world citizenship and the rule of international morality will remain but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued but never attained; And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique and in South Africa in subhuman bondage have been toppled and destroyed; Until bigotry and prejudice and malicious and inhuman self-interest have been replaced by understanding and tolerance and good-will; Until all Africans stand and speak as free beings, equal in the eyes of all men, as they are in the eyes of Heaven; Until that day, the African continent will not know peace.

„Today is the day on which we defeated our enemy.“

—  Haile Selassie
Context: Today is the day on which we defeated our enemy. Therefore, when we say let us rejoice with our hearts, let not our rejoicing be in any other way but in the spirit of Christ. Do not return evil for evil. Do not indulge in the atrocities which the enemy has been practicing in his usual way, even to the last. Take care not to spoil the good name of Ethiopia by acts which are worthy of the enemy. We shall see that our enemies are disarmed and sent out the same way they came. As Saint George who killed the dragon is the Patron Saint of our army as well as of our allies, let us unite with our allies in everlasting friendship and amity in order to be able to stand against the godless and cruel dragon which has newly risen and which is oppressing mankind. Address in Addis Ababa (5 May 1941), as translated in My Life and Ethiopia's Progress, Vol. 2, (1999), p. 165.

„Conflicts between nations will continue to arise. The real issue is whether they are to be resolved by force, or by resort to peaceful methods and procedures, administered by impartial institutions.“

—  Haile Selassie
Context: Conflicts between nations will continue to arise. The real issue is whether they are to be resolved by force, or by resort to peaceful methods and procedures, administered by impartial institutions. This very Organization itself is the greatest such institution, and it is in a more powerful United Nations that we seek, and it is here that we shall find, the assurance of a peaceful future.

„All goes on as before, as always. Illusions, illusions.“

—  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.

„Here, in this Assembly, reposes the best — perhaps the last — hope for the peaceful survival of mankind.“

—  Haile Selassie
Context: Twenty-seven years ago, as Emperor of Ethiopia, I mounted the rostrum in Geneva, Switzerland, to address the League of Nations and to appeal for relief from the destruction which had been unleashed against my defenceless nation, by the Fascist invader. I spoke then both to and for the conscience of the world. My words went unheeded, but history testifies to the accuracy of the warning that I gave in 1936. Today, I stand before the world organization which has succeeded to the mantle discarded by its discredited predecessor. In this body is enshrined the principle of collective security which I unsuccessfully invoked at Geneva. Here, in this Assembly, reposes the best — perhaps the last — hope for the peaceful survival of mankind.
