Zizek moment

I'm reading (with difficulty) Slavoj Zizek's latest book: In Defense of Lost Causes for which I did not thank enough akhuy fil mahjar. From the introduction:

"... after one fails, one can go on and fail better, while indifference drowns us deeper and deeper into the morass of imbecilic Being."

Which I dedicate to all those who have abdicated the Cause.

This book has been getting a lot of negative attention in the blogosphere and popular press because it supposedly advocates "violence". Like Zizek's call for "enthusiastic resignation" in Fragile Absolute, what he is really advocating is a willingness to escape from the anesthesia of Fantasy. Anyway, thanks for sharing the lovely quote.
