Now's A Good Time To Revisit "The Pervert's Guide To Ideology"

Submitted by: lalapancakes 3 months ago News & Politics

Since November (and since the newest version of the GOP owning all three branches of American government for the next two years, at least), Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek has been all over the place discussing his thoughts on the sociopolitical landscape facing the world, today.

Zizek is one of the few coherent and objective voices currently on Clinton and Trump’s derelictions and how the voter continues to be duped. If there was ever a question to where Zizek intended to take the public conversation on extreme ideologies, it can be illustrated well before the elections through his work in “The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology” where he tackles the public’s often violent revulsion from facing its' own manufactured ideology, on the capitalization of unnecessary desires, and on how christianity is essentially atheism.
