World of the day: Субєцтівіті
Flaker: someone who is not very good at what he does but who nevertheless waxes irritatingly philosophical about the failures of others.
Thank heaven for Ukraine’s patriotic vloggers – masters of boosterism whose fantasies of a better way come tumbling down in four-minute monologues, YouTube clips, Telegram and Facebook posts with soothing bolshevism, with hardcore obsequiousness. They are admirable. They are energetic. They work up a sweat at the edges of convention, then smash on through with the earnest fecklessness required to come up with a term like субєцтівіті.
Not to be outdone by Parler, Rumble, Gab and Odysee in the echo chambers of American nitwits.
