Apparatchik[1]

Dmitri A. Medvedev (above), then the Russian president, at Mr. Medvedev's Gorki residence outside Moscow, being interviewed by Russian dissident, Dmitri A. Muratov, 2009. This has to be the all-time classic picture of a politically correct human being, an apparatchik / wokeman, who serves a function. Photograph is from RIA Novosti, an official Russian media organ, so I would presume they thought it was flattering. It reminds me of the Headmaster (below) of the "prep" school I was subjected to here in U.S.A. (1958-64; St. Paul's Day Carcel for Pubescent Male Virgins except-for-omerta-sex-for-jocksAll trash to recycling!), whom everybody else asexually "loved", but he seemed to me to be a dialtone :

S. Atherton Middleton, Headmaster of St. Paul's School for Boys, Brooklandville, Maryland, USA, during my (BMcC) day incarceration in the institution,1958-64.

Watch the birdie, Ronnie!All trash to recycling!

POTUS No 40, United States B-movie actor elected President, Ronald Reagan. What a [Linda] Tripp!

And, please, always remember the deepest secret and real meaning of life, the magic words that open all doors and cure all ills and make you happy forever:

FLOTUS NO 40, Nancy Reagan, who famously told us to: "Just say: 'No!'"

"Just say: 'No!'" [Aside: My father's third wife, Melva Bertier Heil, looked like and behaved like and I presume thought(?) like Nancy ReaganAll trash to recycling! and was a bookkeeper for an advertising agency for Republican politicians.]

Unfortunate for themself, the person who lacks one; unfortunate for others, the person that is one. Don't be an a**hole!
