Questions teased from the latest interview with Slavoj Zizek (The man of the moment)
we must talk in a rational and organized way
if not we head for catastrophe
what happens the morning after the revolution?
how will the ordinary people change
we need to imagine and build
the reorganization of everyday life
for all the people
food, clothing, shelter, wifi, power, water,
european accomplishments of
enlightenment and human rights
require a minarchist enforcement of human rights
to talk openly,
or the result is Le Pen and UKIP
we must recognize there is a problem
and perhaps then, respectively, ignore
learn a toleration of distance,
not so far away neighbors
don't have to like them
but acknowledged as human
is respect from someone you don't like,
and don't understand
war on some Jews, Trump administration
the era of paradox
the regression in public speech
we need to be dogmatic about certain things
(e.g "rape is okay because...torture is okay because... etc.)
"i don't have to debate this guy"
he/she's an idiot
tragedy of public decency
The vulgarity of public politics
the point is keep it private
out of decency
private conspiracy theories
now out in public debate,
living in an era of regression,
hollywood dystopias reflect this
to exercise the cliche'
making fun between friends
poking fun at nationalism
rare, rare but magic moment
of the miracle of communication
must explore the other....
see as the neighbor
remain a neighbor, not you
this line 'we are all the same'
no, we are not the same,
this can cover up racism
thats why need political
solidarity, humanism often
misidentified solely with empathy
we strive for human universality
human rights vs. citizens rights
(a certain community, customs, political code)
but universal human rights
above being citizens bound by
customs, community, politics
with certain (post-citizen) human rights
speech, freedom, so on.
who sets the argument standard?
immobility - mobility
what happens when 3 million
want to move to
into OUR society, (Vico's conceit of nations)
do they want this? no,
they want their way of life
would you? how to integrate?
we must talk openly about these problems
to avoid and anti immigrant explosion
to what extent does freedom of movement
cover freedom of settlement?
employment? so on?
we must talk in a rational organized way
if not we head for catastophe
