Slavoj Žižek Quote: “A typical guy who buys organic food doesn’t really buy it in order to be healthy; he buys it to regain a kind of solidarity as the one who really cares about nature. He buys a certain ideological stance.”
Slavoj Žižek Quote: “I agree with Sophocles: the greatest luck is not to have been born – but, as the joke goes on, very few people succeed in it.”

Slavoj Žižek Quote: “The more opera is dead, the more it flourishes.”
Slavoj Žižek Quote: “Liberal democracy – as you know, in the old days, we were saying we want socialism with a human face.
