Regarding the Nobel Peace Prize

I have written about the Nobel Peace Prize before, and about a year ago I suggested that

Maybe it would be better to wait a couple of decades before awarding the prize, as with the scientific prizes […]

But, the sentence just before that was

[The Nobel Peace Prize] was this time awarded to Abiy Ahmed, who at least at this time seem to deserve it.

Ah.

This headline from the AP, “Peace was swift in Ethiopia under Abiy. War was, too“, kind of tells you how that went.

I’d like to point to my suggestion of waiting a couple of decades, and add that my reservation unfortunately seems justified.
