Асецішча трансліт.: Asiecišča, руск.: Осетище
An old settlement of Ossets in the White Ruthene?! Tongue What's the name about?

The first explanation I thougt of was: just like замчышча is a place where a castle is (or used to be) located, асецішча must be a place where there was an асець once (or maybe still is).

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
Thomas Carlyle

It means one can use it to describe his political views. ^_^

That's my ideology.

How does one say in English, in German “I am czernosotenets”?
