Zizek: First as tragedy, Then as farce!

If you are curious about where my last post came from, take in this excellent animation from RSA Animate featuring Slavoj Zizek.    Peter Rollins, author of the parable in my previous post, is a student of Zizek.  He takes some of these ideas and applies them to faith.   My particular interest is in the mechanism that is at work in those who claim to follow Jesus on one hand while living lifestyles that are contrary to his life and teaching, without ever fully experiencing the trauma of the disconnect.  It’s what helps keep the world as it is.   Anyway, check out Zizek!  His mind combined with excellent animation makes his ideas accessible.
