Occupy Wall Street - Slavoj Zizek

O esloveno Slavoj Zizek apareceu ontem na Liberty Plaza e dircursou aos manifestantes. Destaco um excerto: "There is a danger. Don’t fall in love with yourselves. We have a nice time here. But remember: carnivals come cheap. What matters is the day after. When we will have to return to normal life. Will there be any changes then. I don’t want you to remember these days, you know, like - oh, we were young, it was beautiful. Remember that our basic message is: We are allowed to think about alternatives. The rule is broken. We do not live in the best possible world. But there is a long road ahead. There are truly difficult questions that confront us. We know what we do not want. But what do we want? What social organization can replace capitalism? What type of new leaders do we want?"

Aqui a prelecção completa do filósofo da "cultura popular" e os videos em jeito de "liturgia colectiva".

Neste artigo de opinião do NYT outro ponto de vista, menos filosófico, mas nem por isso menos politizado e porventura mais interessante. No osso.
