update: unfair to call Zizek a Stalinist??? : Google on Zizek Stalinism
After so many books Zizek still has no real leftist platform, but he is right here in a way: the pandemic has produced an eerie form of social breakdown, revolution and postcapitalist socialism.
Zizek seems more like a clown than anything like a communist, but at the same time a crypto-Stalinist???
After so many books the left has been diminished, not strengthened.
One hopes that is unfair.
The people who might lead us to real communism are not going to be celebrities.
