[Zizek] goes on: “It is possible to keep the good sides of capitalism, but nonetheless, through a coordinated state, social effort to mobilize. Not just with coronavirus, this is needed with other ecological crises, refugees and so on.” This sounds pretty incoherent to me. Keep capitalism but also have Communism? So he wants Communism lite, one-calorie Communism? Capitalist Communism? Democratic Communism?

Oh, grasshopper, why do you persist in trying to ensnare this trickster-philosopher in your pathetic nets of language and logic? Your feeble powers of speech are mute in the presence of his profundity. Like Perseus in pursuit of Medusa, only by using the shield of pre-verbal images can we even hope to reflect the majesty of his brilliance in a form we can safely approach.
