“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
Zizek is getting fat. Still he remains oddly endearing, even though it's become increasingly obvious that he is absolutely NUTZ.I've yet to see an officially recognized "intellectual" who wasn't. All the earnest blather has no more effect than a thousand maids with a thousand brooms zealously trying to sweep the ocean into line.
THEY ALL LAUGHEDThe odds were a hundred to one against meThe world thought the heights were too high to climbBut people from Missouri never incensed meOh, I wasn’t a bit concernedFor from hist’ry I had learnedHow many, many times the worm had turnedThey all laughed at Christopher ColumbusWhen he said the world was roundThey all laughed when Edison recorded soundThey all laughed at Wilbur and his brotherWhen they said that man could flyThey told MarconiWireless was baloneyIt’s the same old cryThey laughed at our wanting TrumpSaid we were reaching for the moonBut Trump came throughNow they’ll have to change their tuneThey all said Trump just couldn't be electedThey laughed at us, and how!But ho, ho, ho!Who’s got the last laugh now?They all laughed at Rockefeller CenterNow they’re fighting to get inThey all laughed at Whitney and his cotton ginThey all laughed at Fulton and his steamboatHershey and his chocolate barFord and his tin lizzieKept the scoffers busyThat’s how people areThey laughed at our wanting TrumpSaid it would be, "hello, goodbye."But Trump came throughNow they’re eating humble pieThey all said he'd never make the White HouseNow he's taking a bowFor ho, ho, ho!Who’s got the last laugh?He, hee, hee!Let’s at the past laughHa, ha, ha!Who’s got the last laugh now?

Funny how he laughs at those who propose the continuation of the socialist welfare state... and then proposes communist internationalism with a human face as a solution to Europe's economic problems.
...and yes, the 'hysterics' won the election. Let's see if they can reform the socialist state sufficiently to make a difference.
I'm a determined optimist. It's not easy, but I AM determined. };^)>If Mr. Trump does't pan out, we are certainly no worse off than we would have been if that CUNT had managed to ass-end to The Throne.
And thank you for pinpointing the inconsistency in Zizek's rhetoric that makes it hard for me to take him too seriously.Because I believe "RESULTS are ALL that COUNT," I have always assumed Karl Marx's motives to have been malevolent, but perhaps he was –– like Zizek –– just an amiable eccentric with wild ideas who earnestly believed in the essential benevolence and integrity of his own thinking while blind got its inevitable ramifications? No matter WHAT happened, I could never be persuaded to believe that Zizek has a mean bone in his pudgy, bearded body. He too closely resembles a child's beloved, well-worn Teddy Bear for that. §;^D
You have to remember that Marx was around for the "robber baron" era of early industrialization. Kapital was "accumulating" then, just as he predicted. Unfortunately "big" government is NO solution to the problem of "big" business. BOTH require "legal castration" through the establishment of a "balance of powers" commercial legal system that penalizes over-capitalization. Teddy Roosevelt got it wrong, as well. Only the "radical progressives" had it right.
wow now that's a shocker! HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN MY FRIEND !! XOXOXOXO
I happen to be a GREAT ADMIRER of those-called ROBBER BARONS. It was THEY who almost single-handedly made the USA the great superpower it ultimately became after the devastation and utter ruin wrought by Stinkin' Lincoln's War.The derisive term "Robber Barons" was conjured up by the Marxian-Progressive-Liberal-Leftist-Statist-Bastards who were determined then as now to REDUCE America's greatness to a smoldering pile of ashes and soot. Like it ir not CAPITAL is the fuel that enables GROWTH, PRODUCTIVITY and PROSPERITY. It can't be dine with VERBIAGE. Without CAPITAL we would soon be reduced to BRUTE SAVAGERY –– as it was in The Beginning. There're very good reasons why ENVY is listed as one of the SEVEN DEADLY SINS. It it were up to me, however, I would put SELF-RIGHTEOUS BOSSINESS at the TOP of a list of EIGHT DEADLY SINS.Marxism is rooted in ENVY, the LUST for VENGEANCE, and the poisonous fantasy Man has harbored since The Fall from Eden to Function as His Own God.

Please drop by unless you're a Wet Blanket in which case you know where you can go. It's PARTY TIME now! The time for QUESTIONS, MOANING, WHINING, –– and DEBATE –– is OVER! at LAST, thank GOD!!! HURRAY and HALLELUJAH, you 'RATS had it comin' to ya!!!
"I happen to be a GREAT ADMIRER of those-called ROBBER BARONS. It was THEY who almost single-handedly made the USA the great superpower it ultimately became after the devastation and utter ruin wrought by Stinkin' Lincoln's War."Stinker is always good for few buckets of belly laughter!
As they say at Delphi, FT, Μηδεν αγαν!
Why not just say "Everything in moderation" straight out, instead of going though such lengthy obscurantist song and dance routine?After long years of observation and considerable study I have come to realize that the who consider themselves intellectuals too often seem to couch common knowledge in the most abstruse terms possible in order to make themselves feel smarter or appear more significant than they really are.
Said poor Gert, as the Bishop withdrew,“My dear sir, I’m afraid this won’t do,For the Vicar is slicker, And thicker and quickerAnd longer and stronger than you!
Why not just grunt and point?
And then there's: "it ultimately became after the devastation and utter ruin wrought by Stinkin' Lincoln's War."Care to 'mansplain', Stinker?
