“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Žižek Defends Obamacare

Watch and learn. He does so about 60% of the way through. Rock and roll Slavoj: he got it! It was easier to denounce Communism during totalitarianism, he argues, than to push for a specific person to resign. Nice one mate. Also quite good on Occupy.

Precisely: what is required is a bit more hypocrisy and bit less cynicism.
