26 PHASES OF TERRORISM IN THE AGE OF GLOBALIZATION Discussing how the cultural and institutional destruction of the natives resulted in massive deaths, Karl Polanyi (1944: 159–160) notes, “The catastrophe of the native community is a direct result of the rapid and violent disruption of the basic institutions of the victim . . ” The capitalist world economy that, in the nineteenth century, was permanently eliminating famine from Western Europe was, at the same time, accelerating famine and famine-induced deaths in the Rest of the world: “Millions died, not outside the ‘modern world system,’ but in the very process of being forcibly incorporated into its economic and political structures.

The use of sexual violence is also a tactic of genocide that a dominant ethnonational group practices in order to destroy a subordinate ethnonational group. What Catharine MacKinnon (1994: 11–12) says about ethnic cleansing in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina applies to the sexual abuse of Oromo girls and women by the Tigrayan-led regime: “It is also rape unto death, rape as massacre, rape to kill and to make the victims wish they were dead. It is rape as an instrument of forced exile, rape to make you leave your home and never want to go back.

Although the struggle of the Oromo and other peoples forced the Ethiopian state to nationalize the land and make it collective property between 1975 and 1991, the United States has supported the emergence of the Tigrayan-led Ethiopian government that has intensified state terrorism, genocide, and capital accumulation by dispossessing the land of Oromo farmers and herders and that of other farmers and herders (Jalata 2005b). Although the struggles of impoverished peoples like the Oromo cannot threaten global imperialism, global powers have sided with the criminal Tigrayan-led Ethiopian government because of their economic models (Wolfe 1998) that ignore the principles of social justice, fairness, democracy, and national self-determination.
