Happy Birthday Slavoj Žižek!

Slavoj Zizek
Slavoj Žižek, born March 21, 1949 – Slovenian philosopher – Refugees, Terror and Other Troubles with the Neighbors: Against the Double Blackmail (2016)

Read the Wikepedia article about Slavoj Žižek.

Watch a 2016 interview (Tavis Smiley show) where Zizek speaks about the failure of political correctness:

(Paraphrase:) Political correctness tries to make the rules too explicit. It tries to regulate everything. Behind all this respect of the other, isn’t beneath it a certain terrifying coldness?
