Ethiopia: The Silent World of Hippos on Planet Cheetah – Alemayehu G. Mariam, professor of political science at Cal State San Bernardino and practicing defense attorney, is quoted in an article about Ethiopia’s Year of the Cheetah (young people) generation. He urges the wider Ethiopian Hippo Generation (the lost generation) to get in gear and help the youth by standing up for the victims of tyranny and human rights abuses.  Mariam insists that “… silently tolerating wrong over right is dead wrong. Silently conceding the triumph of evil over good is itself evil.”
