Glossary

In my blogging, I sometimes use some rather arcane terms, mostly derived from /pol/, Runet memes, LessWrong Lingvo, pilfered from other bloggers, and of my own invention.

Instead of having to define them every so often, I will provide a series of glossaries:

This page will list the terms that (1) I invented myself, or (2) use particularly frequently.

Handshakeworthiness

  1. Rukopozhatnye (рукопожатные) – lit. “handshakeworthy”, i.e. respectable amongst the skinny-jeans wearing, Jean Jacques cafe-frequenting, TV Rain watching kreakl (креакл = “creative”) intelligentsia. It was popularized by the satirical blogger Lev Sharansky, who played the role of an archetypical emigre (((liberal activist))). It’s my personal favorite and really captures the virtue-signalling component better than any of the others.

    • Obschechelovek (общечеловек) – an outspoken supporter of universal human values (общечеловеческие ценности).
    • Demshiza (демшиза) – portmanteau of “democracy” and “schizophrenia”, used to refer to the most cartoonishly anti-Russian pro-Western “democratists” like the late Novodvorskaya and Borovoy. Rarely used nowadays.
