Use a single word to express the meaning of the following sentence:

Let them do it! (With sympathy, express this word ironically) Cool

Hmmm.. I'm a little confused by the instructions here but the 1st word that pops into my head is "Apathy".

If you are looking for a particular non-English word it would help to say which.

If you are doing a reverse dictionary lookup with no word in mind I am inclined to say there is no word that fits that description perfectly.

There might be some phrasal verbs like: "go on" etc but they are not one word.

There can be no wrong answer to such a confused and confusing request . . . and i find amen rather ironic, given the state of the question . . .

Probably am asking for a special but amusing language phenomenon?

(1) That is for a single English word.
(2) Surely I have ever met that single word, but not remembering it exactly...LOL! And am confident that I will find it out again!
(3) The phrase "go on" contains multifarious meanings(up to 10 items), so it doesn't fit the request, IMO. Cool
