Who is this guy?

I saw him posted around here quite a bit. I want to know more.

>> No.9023711

He is a cultist like Stefan Molyneux

>> No.9023734

>a cultist

Nah, he's just a star. He's not manipulating anyone, in fact there is no ''real'' community around his figure, only a lot of disorganized people who listen to what he says without basing their entire life on his preachings.

Don't compare him (or any intellectually honest intellectual, if that matters) to Molyneux plese

He is continental philosopher responding mostly to hegel and marx with Lacanian psychoanalytical perspective. He is also a tenured professor at two universities in europe. Most of his work has to do with deconstructing the ideologies through which we look at the world.

But he is also a cultural critic, and a star of a couple of documentary films: "the pervert's guide to ideology" and also "the pervert's guide to cinema"

He is well liked because he is a fun and interesting philosopher

This quote says everything about him and all the retarded leftists:
>You know what my fear is? Not that Trump will fail and there will be chaos, but for some real period of time, what if he succeeds? You know what happened in Poland? The Law and Justice party, they did such a tremendous social transfer to the poor that no elected European government would dare to do it. They lowered retirement age, they made better conditions for health care, more help for mothers with children and so on. No wonder that people like them. My God! They did something that no left government dares to do. And for me this is the sad truth of Europe: it’s a paradox.

So sad, right. How could those evil racist nazis do something good, that's unacceptable!
No, we should have all the benefits of an orderly white country, but only if it's ruled by leftists. It must have open borders with a bunch of non-white immigrants and socialism. And that will work, because... uh... MAGIC or something.
But politics aside, Žižek has some good insights and can be quite entertaining.

If anything that's one of the few points of disagreement between Zizek and mainstream leftists where he's entirely right. Only suffering and exploitation will necessitate the revolution, nothing less.

Politics, especially when dumbed down to the left/right paradigm, is poison for the brain. And Žižek is not immune to it.
But he built his persona on being a leftist and I guess he feels like he has to stick with it.

>> No.9035356

I don't understand your response. Can you explain what the paradox is that he speaks of in this paragraph?

>> No.9035361

The dichotomy might be wrong, but there are still often two parties put against each other and you can attach the labels just to the voters of the two (calling the more conservatives "right").

Slovenian Communist who I guess didn't like Bakunin or something because he wasn't funny enough so he continues taking Marx seriously when the LTV and Historical Materialism have both been soundly and empirically disproven.

Basically he's a troll who realized that the standards of intellectual rigor in philosophy have collapsed so far that he can produce entirely content-free lectures and people will still pay him to perform them because they find mongol rape jokes funny.

>when the LTV and Historical Materialism have both been soundly and empirically disproven.
Notice how people always post this claim, but never back it up with anything?
