10 seconds of Zizek – On Freedom and what St. Paul and Lenin have in common

“Was not Paul, like Lenin, the great “institutionalizer,” and, as such, reviled by the partisans of “original” Marxism-Christianity? Does not the Pauline temporality “already, but not yet” also designate Lenin’s situation in between the two revolutions, between February and October 1917? Revolution is already behind us, the old regime is out, freedom is here–but the hard work still lies ahead”
The Puppet & the Dwarf

“We ‘feel free’ because we lack the very langauge to articulate our unfreedom.”
Welcome to the Desert of the Real!: Five Essays on September 11th, p. 2
