I’m extremely sad about Ukraine. But you know what’s at least a bit comforting? Every Ukrainian commentator, blogger, revolutionary, and journalist that I respect and follow feels exactly the same.
I’ve felt so completely alone and isolated since the Trump-mania struck the US that it’s kind of nice to see that there’s a part of the world where everybody I like is on the same wavelength with me.
It’s funny because in the US the people are good and normal while the opinion-makers and the intellectual elites are batshit crazy. In Ukraine it’s the other way round. The intellectuals are good and normal while the 73% of the population is loony tunes.
