    Salaam,

    Friedrich Hegel was a 19th c German philosopher who proposed among other things that in any society there is an order (economic, social and political) that will grow to the state of its maximum efficiency while at the same time (slowly) developing its internal contradictions and weaknesses that contributes to its decay (eventually its demise). Hegel used the words thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis to explain his ideas. Throughout human history groups develops its mission (thesis) while subtly working to betray it (anti-thesis) and only to form another mission over time (synthesis).

    Well, I would like to be less predictable, but this is not an entertainment, but rather an informative piece that i would to share with some active thinkers here. Im a great admirer of all these great minds of the past, but too lazy to read any of their work, but in these times of political hooplas and the apparent failure of leadership that have put us as a nation in a dangerous crossroads to some unknown destinations, political philosophy can be a good, actually a rewarding read.

    Hegel explanations play right to this junction of our political, social and economic history; CCM existence as a ruling political party is nearing its end. What we see inside CCM is the result of systemic internal decay over time as a political party and once considered itself a powerful national institution.

    CCM grew to its maximum capacity with confidence and power under Mwalimu and later lesser leaders, while blinding itself of the obvious dangers of not acting as a political party especially after the election of 1995, (thinking itself as indispensable, bigger and important than the nation, and think that Tanzanians are just made to be docile)

    Those unfortunate souls within CCM who saw this and tried to correct were silenced, and the CCM "institution" moved on unchanged and only grew more exclusive and abusive and in clear contempt of its common members, and the population as a whole.

    And so using Hegels ideas if CCM's Thesis was to be all inclusive party of the people, its massive popularity, and power (or that of its founder), attracted and created elite class of leaders and businessmen who made it exclusive party of the few, which is its anti-thesis and potentially its end as political party unless it finds synthesis and move in a completely new direction.

    The good news for many is that CCM as a group will find difficult to find a synthesis (new mission) without first being out of power and being hit with reality that Tanzanians are not as docile as they once thought to be. If Hegel was right on philosophy of History, and if history is the correct tool of making informed speculation about our lives then nothing can save CCM from dying. Only the bad news is that those in CCM will go on to other parties in attempt to protect whatever material souvenirs they had taken using the once almighty CCM.

    Mungu ibariki Tanganyika,



    Mharakati,

    You are right.Sasa hivi CCM ina internal conflicts zitakazo implode kabla ya uteuzi wa mgombea ama kuwafikisha shehemu ya kufa katika "ballot box"

    Not only Hegel was right, also whe you look at a product life cycle (ccm batch) you see there are several stages; introduction (tanu & asp), growth (policies), maturity (promiselessness), and decline (rivals, m4c). Ccm will surely decline no matter what strategies.

    For sure CCM is in it's decline, that's a very obvious. My worry is if the alternatives are at a stage where they are ready to take over the reigns of CCM.
    At times it seems that the "most likely other" i.e. CHADEMA has gone through thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis ALREADY! Unless CDM uses wisdom akin to King Solomons and intelligence beyond the ordinary to solve it's internal rivalries, I am afraid the chaos and confusion come 2015 will be a tragedy for us and a comedy show to the rest of the world.

    Chadema do not have neither the characteristics nor the means to conquer the hearts of majority voters, they may win pockets of seats as they have already created their own "class of leaders", majority are from North (over 90%) and are already enjoying the exclusive members of the party derived from certain religious group (over 90%), "which is its anti-thesis and potentially its end as political party unless it finds synthesis and move".

    Believe it or not, many are fooled to believe its political taboo to discuss issues pertaining to certain beliefs though it is the only major factor on winning any vote in a democratic but highly segmented with duo major religious societies. Unless you are running a one party system. Why do we fool ourselves?

    Right my bro, tuko kwenye crossroads kweli kweli...whichever road we choose to take in 2015 is not going to solve our leadership problems...if CCM is dying and CDM is still a child, then our position is very much precarious.

    Pasco, mshaurini huyo bwana apumzike, by doing that he'll salvage something out of reputation!

    Mkuu Ngongo, ni kweli nampigia debe kwa nguvu zangu zote, ili litimie lile neno "rais wa 2015, lazima atoke Kaskazini!, na amini, amini nawaambie, EL akisimamishwa, ule ukombozi wa kweli wa pili wa Mtanzania, utapatikana!.

    Pasco...umeoa kwenye ukoo wa EL? kupenda gani huku? EL atapumzika tu siasa anaweza kuendelea na ubunge kule monduli, lakini ccm yake inakufa na yeye amechangia sana kuia. Actually naweza kusema kwa uhakika Edward Ngoyai Lowassa ni mmoja wa wachangiaji wakuu wa kifo cha CCM kama chama cha siasa. Y?

    1. mwanzilishi wa mtandao (kakikundi kadogo kenye nia ya kutawala nchi kwa kutumia jina la CCM na siyo kutumia CCM kama chombo madhubuti cha kutetea maslahi ya taifa)

    2. vita ya ndani kwa ndani (kama angejiuzulu kama Mwinyi na kukaa kimya akijishughulisha na kazi za kijamii kama kiongozi muandamizi wa zamani, CCM ingekua na nafasi kidogo, lakini ile vita aliyoianzisha ya kusaka mchawi na visasi ndiyo imesaidia kumdidimiza yeye na CCM yake kisiasa)

    3. Kuonekana ni poster boy wa ufisadi ndani ya CCM (tunakubali na kujua mafisadi ni wengi na wengine wabaya zaidi ya EL ndani ya CCM, lakini hadi leo hajaja na majibu ya Richmond kwa jamii na hivyo kuonekana ni mlafi na mwizi)

    4. kumtumia Makamba kuendeleza mtandao (kwa kutoa wagombea wanaokubalika na wananchi na kuweka anaona yeye na kundi lake kua wanafaa)

    Hitimisho, ulevi wa madaraka na kupenda maslahi binafsi kwa wana mtandao wakuu EL, Jk, RA, Makamba na vibaraka wao wasiokua na uwezo haswa pale muda wa asali na maziwa wa 2005-2008 walipokua wanacheka na kupanga karata zao za kujiburudisha na Tanzania na rasilimali zake ndizo zimeiua CCM kisiasa.

    CCM walishiba sana wakavimbiwa na sasa wanavunjika viungo na uzito wao wenyewe...Dalili za chama kufa ni pale chama cha siasa kinapoacha misingi yake halisi iliyokipa umaarufu na nguvu kubwa. Angalia wenzetu wenye vyama imara US, au Uk au France..vyama vyote hivi havibadilisha misimamo wala itikadi zao kwa miaka na miaka. Conservative na labor za 19th c ni hizi hizi za leo kimisingi na kiitikadi. Democrats na Republicans ni hawa hawa kimisingi yake halisi toka enzi za Lincoln hadi leo.

    CCM imeacha misingi yake iliyokifanya kiwe maarufu na sasa imekua na mtazamo finyu usiofuata kanuni wala itikadi yeyote zaidi ya fedha, rushwa, na maslahi binafsi. Hiki ni chama mfu
