The point that caught my attention the most is that Zizek argues that we can’t blame people or attitudes. It is the system that forces greed, and corruption that is to blame. I am not sure how I feel about that statement. Is this political economy, and system of capitalism solely the problem? I think the system does push people to be corrupt, but it is both a problem of the system as well as the people who under the system.
I agree with the statement that Zizek quotes, that it “is not a crisis of capitalism, but a crisis of morality”. Financial capitalism and inequality have become a moral problem. It is this problem of morality that is at the fronts of the OWS protests. However, now that the protesting is done according to Zizek, we must continue to challenge the system. We need a new form of organization, a new economic structure.
