but,
as the joke goes on, very few people succeed in it.

focus all their hatred on the United States.

silent about that? When I say this,
it annoys them, of course.

Liberal democracy - as you know, in the old days,
we were saying we want socialism with a human face.
Today's left effectively offers global capitalism with a human face,
more tolerance, more rights and so on.

I think not.
- Slavoj Zizek

What if the Soviet intervention was a blessing in disguise?
It saved the myth that if the Soviets were not to intervene,
there would have been some flowering authentic democratic socialism and so on.
I'm a little bit more of a pessimist there.
I think that the Soviets - it's a very sad lesson -
by their intervention,
saved the myth.
- Slavoj Zizek
