I drink coffee and smoke cigarettes. ADHD helpers. Cocaine probably is too. I figured what I like: He’s the Slovenian George Carlin.

I’m too impatient to sit through more than a 30s clip of memes, nevermind 10 MINUTES, but this guy made it easy.

I just saw his name tossed around, usually sarcastically by fanboys of Jordan Peterson so I didn’t pay it any mind.

I never paid Peterson all that much mind either. One day, I sat down and researched, came to my conclusions and that was that. I guess I’ll do the same for Zizek now.

Oh, it wasn’t rocket science to know the US was going to go Republican though. That’s just the order of things for the USA. Had nothing to do with Trump. Trump should’ve won by a landslide though. He barely won.

“He had already begun reading French structuralists prior to entering university, and in 1967 he published the first translation of a text by Jacques Derrida into Slovenian.”

 Well, mocking is a part of the internet and politics especially.As far as Zizek as philosopher, I got this:”He had already begun reading French structuralists prior to entering university, and in 1967 he published the first translation of a text by Jacques Derrida into Slovenian.”

That’s all I need to know. Yeah, I like him. He’s a rhetorical magician. If you can both understand AND translate Derrida at a young age (1967-1949 = 18 yrs old), then you know the magic of rhetoric, not as a “political tool” or as a “subset of logic” but as the main thing.

He gets it.
