“All right,” Joshua declared as he turned on the signal and pulled to the side of a narrow, two-lane highway that seemed to bounce up and down, like a rippling ribbon frozen by a high-speed camera. “All right, it's time for me to take a nap. Cash, if you'd like help balancing on the way to the front passenger seat, G, you're driving.”

“I'm what?” G croaked.

“Student driver,” his dad informed him, pointing to add emphasis. Then he pointed to Cash, who already had the lift in motion. “Licensed driver, whose only job is to get control of the vehicle if you panic. So, don't panic.”

Joshua set the parking brake and shut off the engine, and hugged his son as they crossed paths on the side of the road. When he returned, he secured the wheels with a moving strap. As he slipped behind it to the vinyl accordion door next to the tiny kitchen area, he told Kais, “I'll wake up in an hour. Don't worry, G's a better driver than he thinks he is.”

Zhenya was going to die in this cruel, cold wasteland.

Or, not die, maybe. He’d probably just wander around and stress eat his way through most of his spending money until Sasha found him- but, he was cold, and it was very, very cruel of Sasha to ditch him like this when this whole trip had been his idea in the first place.

I'm wondering what the English equivalent for the German "Aktionismus" is.

In German this is a usually pejorative term to describe activities somebody (often people in a position of power but accountable to the public, more rarely subordinates under pressure from above) undertakes to be visibly seen as "doing something" to address a problem, but the actions are not well thought out, unlikely to really solve or improve the situation, but are (at least from the perspective of the speaker making the charge of something being "Aktionismus") done wholly or partly to provide cover against the accusation of inactivity or indifference.

Like when you hastily implement "security theater" measures against a real security threat, because you can't think of any actual solution to improve security for real, but not doing anything and admitting to having no solution would be politically very costly. Opponents then might accuse you of "Aktionismus".

So "Aktionismus" is a general term for hasty, thoughtless responses of this type, used by opponents of the actions. It is often coupled with "blind" as in "blinder Aktionismus" to emphasize the lack of plan or vision to arrive at a real solution.

It is similar to the accusation that something is merely a "symbolic action" but that implies more a deliberate gesture lacking concrete results, whereas "Aktionismus" is more of a harmful flailing around.

"Aktionismus" has also some sort of specialized meaning for some performance art movement from Vienna, and apparently the word "actionism" exists in English in the translation for that Austrian art, but it doesn't seem to be used in the colloquial sense. But clearly this is a common phenomenon (and accusation) in politics, so there ought to be an English term.

“We're going to Its Your Body Shop,” G began, shrugging diffidently, as only a teen could.

“In Humboldt?” the young woman blurted. Her fingers clenched, revealing large, white knuckles beneath her golden skin. “Like, really?”

“Yeah,” G brightened. “It would make the whole thing more fun if I knew somebody wading through things at the same time. I mean, my friends are great, but the only person who came close to understanding was almost literally run out of town by her family's reaction.” The teen pointed out the tinted side window on the van. “Dad, the tow truck's almost here.”

“Already?” Joshua frowned, then smoothed it away. He wasn't trying to overly influence the young woman, and she had every right to back out because of the emotional upset of the day.

“I don't know what those boys did to the car when they spray painted it, but the car just started spluttering, then it wouldn't go more than twenty miles an hour, with the gas pedal all the way down,” the motorist declared, her voice rising as the story spilled out like tea from a shattered pitcher. “Then it stopped and it won't even start!”

“Okay, that's probably because of something put into the gas tank,” Joshua soothed. “Did you report the incident? I mean, spray painting that phrase on someone's car is a hate crime.”

“I wasn't the one who noticed it first. The busboy at the Global Garden noticed it when he went outside with a bag of trash, and then the manager came to tell me that she'd called the police.”
