    This is uite interesting This brief book which contains a series of six largely 'political' essays written after and largely about 911 is generally accessible full of sometimes remarkable insights though certainly repetitive and an excellent point of entry for starting in on Zizek There is stuff that is useless for example giving readings of Sophocles' Antigone as a method for extracting some philosophical item or nugget that has about as

    Zizek's writing is some kind of intellectual porn I turn the pages compulsively but what's the point? Some part of me is thrilled whenever it interacts with a thought pattern that is not reductive predetermined transparent It is light in the intellectual darkness and like porn it removes the easy coverings of la

    Thought provoking there’s a fair amount of nonsense to wade through but Zizek also calls out a bunch of peoplegroups for their nonsense so it was worth the wade

    Nicholas Lezard said it very well about another Zizek book Reading Žižek is hard work But it is worth it; like hacking through miles of undergrowth and jungle vegetation in order to be rewarded every so often wi

Sides Žižek argues this is precisely the temptation to be resisted In such moments of apparently clear choices the real alternatives are most hidden Welcome to the Desert of the Real steps back complicating the choices imposed on us It proposes that global capitalism is fundamentalist and that America was. I think sometimes people who ve known me for a long time wonder how I ended up a fan of Zizek and Badiou how I ended up so disenchanted with capitalism etc There a a lot of things that go into it but one aspect that this book reminded me about these guys get it right I m a mathematician have taught probability and statistics I like keeping myself open to evidence and here s the evidence Zizek wrote these essays between Sept 11 2001 and Sept 11 2002 This book was published on that one year anniversary Okay you say fine big deal he s got people who know how to sell his booksBut here s why I read it now and here s why it s so important he saw it all coming he saw it all clearly already right then So when people say Zizek s just a contrarian or he s just a provocateur well he is those things sometimes but he s also built himself a conceptual and analytic apparatus that allows him to see clearly the corrupt sad horrifying reality of the world much earlier than lots of other people can This is how you decide on a good model in mathematics or in science right You see what its predictions are and then test those predictions against reality How well do those predictions and descriptions correspond to what actually came about Well read this book and see how well Zizek recognized predicted described the mess we ve all of us enmeshed ourselves within since 911So yes I think Zizek is worth reading and listening to because he s done a good job before of seeing through the noisy confusing smokescreens and misdirections thrown at us everyday by a corrupt power structure and a bought and paid for media apparatus
