Don’t know why, but I loved this line from Zizek in this recent interview for guardian.

Let’s speak frankly, no bullshit, most of the left hates me even though I am supposed to be one of the world’s leading communist intellectuals. via A life in writing: Slavoj Žižek | Culture | The Guardian.

Also, [speaking to Assange]:

You are a terrorist in the way that Gandhi was. In what sense was Gandhi a terrorist? He tried to stop the normal functioning of the British state in India. You are trying to stop the normal functioning of information circulation.

Below Zizek, Amy Gutman and Julian Assange in London.

He is in town these days to promote Living in the End Times.
