Open Letter to Slavoj Zizek
Dear Slavoj Zizek
I notice you never mention FEMINISM. Is it out of fear or ignorance, I wonder.
You never debate with anyone either. I am sure you would never dare debate with me.
I have observed how you are really quite right-wing but continue to pretend that you are a Marxist, in the hope that no one would notice.
I just watched http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw8LPn4irao and saw that you ended by saying the Left would eventually triumph, rather than the Populist Right, for reasons I would suggest are incoherent and facile.
However, I quite understand, because if you had said the opposite then your income and your invitations to speak would dry up instantly.
Still , as you say you are a Marxist philosopher, I suppose it is worth asking if you are prepared to debate with a nationalist philosopher. I do not anticipate an acceptance, because I would expect even a philosophical fraud to to know on which side his bread is buttered.
