@requrious can't believe they went with 'neon genesis philosophy' and not the clearly superior 'neon genesis dialectics'
@julia @FirstProgenitor see this is the thing, he just says hot takes so things like this happen where you're now talking about him. he was a leftist dissident in Yugoslavia who was trying to push for civil liberties and freedom of press, he's called himself a communist for decades and written dozens of books to back that up, then he just says shit like "people shouldn't care about bathrooms actually" on TV because he likes being talked about
@julia @FirstProgenitor I do too, which is why I am begging my man to shut the fuck up and stop trying to spit the hottest take of the hour he literally doesn't care about, will only say once, and then say another hot take tomorrow completely contradicting that. beyond that is a guy who has like a shit load of books about the ideology of neoliberalism and material relations under it, how it obfuscates relations, how ideology functions as a thing, all of which are radical texts that are good that you just can't recommend BECAUSE HE WON'T SHUT THE FUCK UP
@julia @FirstProgenitor https://www.rt.com/op-ed/428134-royal-wedding-uk-zizek/ like LOOK at this "Slavoj Žižek: Britain’s royal wedding had an emancipatory subtext " he just SAYS this shit and then never goes back to the take again because he wants to be a fucking meme or something. he is a communist, has been a communist since he was raised in Yugoslavia, has written about and for communism as an academic for decades and he writes in Russia Today that the British royal wedding was woke, actually
@FirstProgenitor I've mainly heard of two, "The Pervert's Guide To Ideology" and "The Pervert's Guide To Cinema", I'm curious about the takes but I still have to see them
@requrious I am pretty positive the US military forces will bring peace, Freedom (tm) and Real Democracy (tm) very soon to Columbia.
