The Fake Mandela Memorial Interpreter–My critique of Zizeks analysis of Mandela’s Funeral Service Sign Language

When the exception is used as the metaphor for the rule…..all logic and rationality goes awry. Moreover, his words are pretty essentialist and assumptive about the motives–something he doesn’t really have access to. The nature of philosophy grounded on conspiracy-theory type logic IMHO.

Let me be clear–there is a singular grain of truth to what he’s saying–but to suggest its a full-cloth or big picture version of truth or awareness or re-awakening or anything beyond an overly verbose academia….I’m not really sure.

To me thats the worst kind of truthiness.
