Politics, philosophy & perversity: RT marks Zizek’s birthday with frank & UNRESTRICTED chat

Politics, philosophy & perversity: RT marks Zizek’s birthday with frank & UNRESTRICTED chat
The world’s premier dirty joke-telling philosopher celebrates his 70th birthday by giving his unique take on Catholic perversity, on the “racism of political correctness” and on hardcore pornography, in a film by RT.

Referred to by some as the “Elvis of cultural theory,”the sniffing Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek is no ordinary intellectual. With his unique blend of pop culture references and irreverent takes on taboo-subjects, Zizek has, in the words of Foreign Policy, “given voice to an era of absurdity.”

Watch RT’s birthday gift to“the world’s most dangerous philosopher.”
