"Die Welt erwartet eine wirkliche Alternative."

Immer wieder Slavoj Zizek. Immer wieder auf Al-Jazeera. Immer noch nervig. Man muss seine Macken wegfiltern. Man muss seine clownesken Provokationen aushalten. Aber wenn man zur Essenz seiner Aussagen durchdringt ....

"I think today the world is asking for a real alternative. Would you like to live in a world where the only alternative is either anglo-saxon neoliberalism or Chinese-Singaporean capitalism with Asian values? I claim if we do nothing we will gradually approach a kind of a new type of authoritarian society. Here I see the world historical importance of what is happening today in China. Until now there was one good argument for capitalism: sooner or later it brought a demand for democracy... What I'm afraid of is with this capitalism with Asian values, we get a capitalism much more efficient and dynamic than our western capitalism. But I don't share the hope of my liberal friends - give them ten years, [and there will be] another Tiananmen Square demonstration - no, the marriage between capitalism and democracy is over." (Slavoj Zizek)
