Born in Golem, Albania in 1961, Tare studied astrophysics under the tutelage of Adam Kola at the University of Tirana.

In 1981, using the pseudonym ‘Orion Mala’, he began writing articles for the underground periodical Lëndë e Djegshme in which he argued that Leninism had debased the original aims of socialism.

In 1985, the Albanian Directorate of State Security imprisoned Tare for sedition. He remained in custody until the collapse of communism in 1991.

Tare completed his PhD at the Polytechnic University of Tirana in 1996. In 2007 he joined the Academy of Para-Chronology in his home municipality of Golem, where he remained until his death from inflammatory heart disease in 2024.
