Example text

NO! NATURE TINKERS AND IMPROVISES, WITH GREAT CATASTROPHES ACCOMPANYING EVERY LIMITED SUCCESS. INDEED, EVOLUTION IS COMPOSED FROM A SERIES OF CATASTROPHES AND DISASTERS, AND BROKEN EVOLUTIONS ARE PART OF OUR HISTORY. AT EVERY POINT IN THE HISTORY OF NATURE THINGS COULD HAVE TAKEN A DIFFERENT PATH AND TURNED OUT DIFFERENTLY. As a way of underlining these ideas, Žižek points out that the oil and the energy we rely upon is composed from a previous natural disaster of unimaginable dimensions. And he asks: If evolution is so perfectly designed, how is it that 90 per cent of the human genome is junk DNA?

I ALSO ENJOY REGALING MY AUDIENCES WITH STORIES AND JOKES – OFTEN DIRTY ONES! Žižek’s provocative side is counter-balanced by an astonishing knowledge of philosophy and politics and by an effective presentation of himself as a larger-than-life super-brainy intellectual exploding with ideas. While Žižek engages in polemics he sometimes intentionally evades open argument or dispute, a tactic designed to create a space in which the audience or interlocutor has to make up their own minds about their political and personal responsibilities.

For Žižek, Kafka’s work is relevant to today because he recognizes that behind every form of enjoyment in contemporary society, whether sanctioned or transgressive, legitimate or illegitimate, there exists a super-ego directing it. NOWHERE IS KAFKA’S INSIGHT MORE RELEVANT THAN IN THE CASE OF THE CHURCH – NOT LEAST BECAUSE, AS THE SAYING GOES, “THE CHURCH NEEDS SINNERS”. “The Church poses as a moral guardian of the people and as its conscience. ” BUT UNDERNEATH THIS MESSAGE OF SELF-DENIAL THERE IS THE OPPOSITE MESSAGE: PRETEND TO ABSTAIN – AND YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU WANT.
