The peasant language used for world commerce and academia?
But of course. English is the international language of commerce and academia precisely
because of its primitivism (or, I should rather say, simplicity) which, enriched with specific
economic and scientific vocabulary, makes it a perfect vulgar tool for everyday, worldwide use.
So, elites within the slavic group will use a slavic lingua franca to communicate with other slavic speakers - How absurd!
There's nothing absurd about using a tongue more natural to all Slavic speakers, rather than
English. Don't worry though - peasants and cheap workforce (a majority of any society)
will keep using English, so you will be able to communicate in your native tongue when you
travel through countries of Great Slavija.
As if they have something more to sell than prnography and cheap cars!
Your knowledge of Slavic world seems to be somewhat poor. Typical for people closed in
the English language mental ghetto (I'm not saying you're one of them, but you may be.)
The vulgarity and simplicity of their native language, appears somehow to affect their
worldview and way of thinking. How sad...
And the rest of the world can stuff off eh?
The rest of the world can carry on with their business as usual. Slavic elites, however,
should honour their heritage, history and culture by refusing to communicate among
themselves in English. There seems to be some sort of snobbery among peasants, which
makes them consider English to be better than their native languages.
Such snobbery is something up with which we should not put.
