Žižek claims that if he were an American he would vote for Trump. And, he continues, a Trump Presidency would lead to a “kind of big awakening.”
It’s been a while since I’ve had the displeasure of writing about Žižek, who at one point claimed that the Buddhist state of awakening gave one free licence to murder. Last time I wrote about him, I concluded, “So horrible on so many levels.” I’m afraid this isn’t much better.
Would it be fair to say that Žižek is the Donald Trump of philosophy?
