    It’s a empirical study on how, even though people are on socially the same lvl they still find a away to discriminate against each other. And that the most studies focus on social difference like Race, Income and such and that in this case those indicators fall away.. it’s hard to describe

    This in my opinion is a book every Somali should read.

    Somalia: between devils and deep sea

    By: Mohaned Osman Omar

    It talks about the Civil War (1991-2004) from what lead to it and how Ethiopia (especially Meles Zenawi) played major role in the mess Somalia became.

    Finished it, the prologue and first chapter were boring, the middle and end of the book were good.

    I haven't finished my book but still a good start. The author talks about the people of the Upper Egypt, especially the Copt-Catholics who are a minority among the minority of Copts. They are about 400,000 and they live mostly in the rural zone and they are very poor and they are farmers. The Egyptian government doesn't care about them since the nineteenth century and these people are stereotyped as "undereducated, poor, etc". Unlike Copt-orthodox, they are not rich. Their history is fascinating and I'll keep posting as I'm reading more about the book.

    I listened to his podcast on Joe Rogan (search for Jonathan Haidt on JRE on YT), on there he pretty much revealed the main premise of his book. I haven't read it yet, but from the sound of it seems like a good one.

    What a read.


    AUN Aadan Cadde Iyo Cabdirisaaq Xaaji Xuseen. Both suffered such hardships, in their early lives yet they never became corrupted by power or money.

    What a democracy, what a country. Democracy worked so well in Somalia, a model not only for Africa but for the whole world.

    This is a must-read for anyone interested in Somali history or politics.

    May Allah return us to that time.
