Altizer’s Latest Appearance

by

So, I just began reading Zizek’s new book, and I was quite surprised to see that Altizer was quoted commenting on the Taliban and Obama. Apparently it was communicated through personal communication with Zizek. They’ll also be appearing this together year at AAR together in Montreal, damn I’d love to go.

Here’s the quote:

“Now it is finally being revealed that the Taliban is a genuine liberating force assaulting an ancient feudal rule in Pakistan and freeing the vast peasant majority from that rule…Hopefully we will now hear genuine criticism of the Obama administration which is far more dangerous than the Bush administration both because it is being given such a free hand and because it is a far stronger administration” (First as Tragedy, then as Farce, 72).
