August 9, 2010

Here’s an entertaining (even funny!) video interpretation of the rantings of Slavoj Zizek–a philosopher from Slovenia who argues that charity not only fails to do much to help those in need in our modern world, but  actually exacerbates the problems of those who suffer. I’m not sure I buy all of his arguments, but I enjoyed hearing him out. And ever since I saw this yesterday afternoon, I’ve been turning his thoughts over and over again in my mind.
