Zizek on Violence, Part 2

On August 5 I wrote a long post on the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek. For those who wish to read a more complete debunking of his horrific thought, I highly recommend Adam Kirsch's synoptic review in "The New Republic." Link here.

Kirsch has written a truly great article, going much further than I did in revealing the depravity of Zizek's thought. For those who think this is trivial, I would recall that Zizek is something of a cult figure, taken very seriously by academics. Perhaps now they will think twice before forcing their gullible students to accept Zizek as a great thinker worthy of respect... but I have my doubts.
