Amy Goodman entrevista a Slavoj Zizek en Democracy Now! El filósofo esloveno se explaya hablando, entre otras cosas, acerca de Bush, Obama, Clinton, los elementos autodestructivos del capitalismo, la guerra de Iraq y la izquierda "fukuyamista":
"I was in Great Britain, in United Kingdom in that point. And what did strike me is how, after the big protests [contra la guerra de Iraq, en 2003], both sides appeared satisfied in a strange way. The organizers of demonstrators made their point: you see the majority is behind us, people oppose war, we made our point. But silently, they knew they didn’t stop the war, nothing. Blair government, the other side, was also satisfied. You see what an open society is: even when a country goes to war, we can—and again, the best answer, I think, was provided unintentionally by George Bush when he visited at that time UK. I remember, when asked by journalists, “How do you comment on big protests against you?” he said, “I totally support them, because, you see, that’s why we are going to Iraq, so that things like this, massive protest against the government, so that things like this could happen only—will happen also in Iraq.” So, of course, this was either a bad joke or hypocrisy or whatever you want. But there is a truth in it. Everyone, in a way, all the sides, felt satisfied. And this is what often worries me, this—how should I put it?—secret, symbiotic relationship. Those in power like a certain type of moralistic protest, which does nothing."
