Spanish term or phrase:sujetos pacientes
Pretendo realizar el análisis de esta cuestión desde la perspectiva de la percepción del antifascismo por los republicanos españoles, ????sujetos pacientes???? de los peligros que suponía el triunfo de los nacionalistas y protagonistas del enfrentamiento que llevaron a cabo para contener dicho avance.
Before anyone suggests it, I don't think it's 'patient subjects'.
The expression appears in DRAE under sujeto, but I do not know how to render it.
Explanation: "sujetos pacientes" (dRAE) refers to the subject of a passive voice verb...in this case I think the republicans were neither patient nor docile, but knew they would be the objects/ victims of a Nationalist victory and all it entailed.
Explanation: it may not apply here, but it is often that in connection with analysis there is talk of a "thankful subject" which does not mean that it is thankful to your analysing it but it is someone the analyser appreciates.
