"I don't want to understand people. I think 95% of the people are stupid idiots"

Well spoken, Slavoj Žižek!

And well posted, Terry Glavin!

I had almost forgotten just how good Žižek is, having briefly given up on him when the whole Slavoj, Slavoj!-hype was beginning to annoy. I still don't think that we really need an International Journal of Žižek Studies as a circus for the auto-erotic performances of Žižek epigones, but then again I too am probably overly wary of the concept of tolerance.

As an antidote to self-indulgent liberal academic do-gooding the man himself is unsurpassed (and maybe unsurpassable).
