I love these Animations! Zizek will blow your mind. He is talking about identifying the rot of the Global Capitalism system as a whole. Being able to re-imagine society. He can sure turn a phrase. "Charity degrades and demoralizes." "The worst slave owners were the ones who were nice to their slaves." And my personal favorite: “There is a certain type of misanthropy which is much better as a social attitude than this cheap, charitable, optimism”
In this short RSA Animate, renowned philosopher Slavoj Zizek investigates the surprising ethical implications of charitable giving.
