Slavoj Žižek on The Wire

I was delighted to discover this YouTube video of the Slovenian philosopher discoursing on the TV series set in run-down Baltimore:

It’s a long video and many other similar ones appear to be available. In this case, it’s a minor annoyance that the clips discussed aren’t shown, but they themselves can be found by searching on YouTube.

Žižek’s celebrity enables him to riff on as he likes. The result is generally focused and refreshing.
