Slavoj Zizek on Cultural Capitalism – illustrated in cartoons as he speaks!

Slavoj Zizek is a cultural critic and theorist who is affiliated with a number of institutes, currently International Director of the Birkbeck Institute in London and professor at the European Graduate School.  His work is accessible, fascinating, and relevant to anyone interested in the the intersection of culture  and politics.   This short video features Zizek speaking while animators illustrate what he is saying about feel-good capitalism.  It’s a funny and sobering critique for those of us who do believe that socially responsible capitalism (oxymoronic though it may be) is what we are left with.
