Slavoj Zizek on the Culture War: The Year of Dreaming Dangerously 2

Zizek gets into his economic and political theory and shows in which ways he agrees with and diverges from Marx. He discusses how capitalism has changed since Marx’s time and in doing so develops his own take on where it is headed. I attempt to translate his language into something I, and hopefully others, can understand. Of particular note is his analysis of the rise of a new class–the salaried bourgeoisie–and his theory of displacement, with which he explains the conflict between the Tea Party and Alt-Right conservatives and the Social Justice Warrior Liberals.
