The Ethnonym “Ukrainian” is Allegedly Sounding Like a Slur to Polish People

I have a working knowledge of Polish, and can understand it, especially in written form. But any intricacies of the language are foreign to me.

I don’t know how genuine problem this is but the ethnonym “Ukrainian” has entered circulation rather recently, and it comes from Polish. The first to speak of Ukrainian nation (украинская народность) was the historian Nikolai Kostomarov in an essay titled “Two Russian nationalities.” Where he said there are two branches of Russians, Greater Russians and Ukrainians. This however cannot be considered the first use of the ethnonym Украинец.

The latter was adopted by some circles by the end of the nineteenth century but remained widespread among political activists and intellectuals only. By the outbreak of the First World War and especially towards its end, this identification got more currency. (See my posts here and here and here). I recall Oles’ Buzyna saying that the ethnonym “Ukrainian” was first officially used in the Austro-Hungarian military in 1916, on the orders of Emperor Karl I.

Otherwise it took root in 1920s during Soviet Korenizatsiya…

I Will Never Buy Douglas Murray’s Books

Gonzalo Lira, reads an article written by Douglas Murray for the New York Post, he outs him as a Zelensky regime propagandist…

Murray has several books where he ushers critique at the current state of the West. Here is the problem though, the market seems over saturated with these pop-philosophy titles, and many bring nothing groundbreaking to the table. I really feel like a young girl on Tinder getting the attention from all the simps, and having to choose who am I going to read can really be motivated by many factors. I have recently tapped into Jason Reza Jorjani, the dude seems to have a vast knowledge of ancient mythology, which is what I need. I don’t need Murray’s moaning about Islamic immigration, and western cuckolds, I live among them.

There is also, Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens, which offers an interesting outline of human history. I have also delved in my project into transhumanism, and try to link the latter to ancient mythological ideas. There is better shit out there than Douglas Murray. Who gives a fuck if the West dies, the latter needs to die because we can build something better in its stead.

Kanye West Playlist

I always liked Kanye West…

In years past, I was never interested in filling up my iTunes with his songs, this does not mean I did not enjoy them when I heard them on the radio, or from my friends. But recently, Kanye went off with some inane rants about black people being like the Jews in Egypt, or whatever. Big corpos went full holocaust on his income. He apparently lost three billion dollars in 24 hours but he is still left with four hundred million. $400 million, if you ask me, is a fuck you money. With that cash I could take over this country and become a King of the Czechs…

So, on the wave of Kanye cancelling and virtue signaling by big corps, and the kvetching and seething, I decided to enjoy some Kanye songs.

Here is the playlist so far, I have put some songs that I liked before, some others at suggestions. I wanna reach the number of 12. A dozen is a number of perfection. So here it is so far…

All of the Lights

Stronger

Gold Digger (feat Jamie Foxx)

Flashing lights (feat Dwele)

Power

I always liked black music, my grandmother had a collection of black spirituals on vinyl that my American relatives sent her. This is akin to that but with a 21st century twist. So please help me complete my Kanye playlist…
