"My advice would be--because I don't have simple answers... START THINKING!"
Yeah, because that ain't "simple". I don't think this guy has any answers.
I've never gotten what the hype is with this guy. Some people seem to think he's brilliant, but he's like any other Marxist if you ask me.
I think people enjoy his eccentric behaviour, and his funny voice. He looks and sounds like the standard 'wacky & crazed philosopher'.
Ah yes, the demeanor. The reason for so much love and hate.
They think he's brilliant because it makes them feel brilliant. He took 6 minutes to call freedom loving Americans religious idiots.
He's like Erwin Corey but they actually take him seriously:
Also of interest:
Slavoj Zizek: coked-up over-read ignoramous. Probably because he's spent his entire life in the academic community, where people are more than willing to humor his stylish nonsense.
The Anarch is to the Anarchist what the Monarch is to the Monarchist.
No, he is a great philosopher. His philosophy is so incredibly complex. Example: "Everybody should be like me. End of story."
