    uncle zizek on the violence of the recent english student protests:
    “People saying you could have delivered the same message without violence. Fuck them! Of course you can deliver the message. But nobody would hear the message. This is what they like, that 100 people gather and write a message and then you don’t even get the bottom note in the day’s paper … You have to break some windows to get the message through.”
    yes! yes!

    I like the old Soviet joke: “Is it true that Rabinowitch won a car at the lottery?” “In principle it’s true but it wasn’t a car, it was a bicycle, and he didn’t win it, it was stolen from him.”
