Heard Kropotkin use the term "Laylord," presumably a variant of "layman"--one who practices their craft untrained.

Our modern-day capitalist horrorshow is full of laylords--the most socially unintelligent of us occupying leadership roles they are unequipped to fulfill.

My proposal, comrades:
Make "laylord" a thing. Bezos is a laylord. Zuckerberg is a laylord. Let's start calling them that. Let's entice people to ask what we mean. Let's have some meaningful conversations with people whose hearts and minds we might affect for the greater good.

Let's show people the laylords.
