Slavoj Zizek, “Now the field is open”

Interview of philosopher Slavoj Zizek for Al Jazeera

Brilliant Zizek talking about the Occupy protests, and the potential of this movement to formulate a new idea of society. The danger is who will appropriate the energy of these protests?
The current capitalist system has lost its self-evidence, its automatic legitimacy.
The end of the marriage of capitalism and democracy means if we don’t do something we approach a new type of totalitarian capitalism.
