Slovenian madman and intellectual hero Slavoj Zizek treated protesters encamped at New York City’s Liberty Plaza to a rousing pep talk Sunday in which he confessed his fear that the Occupy Wall Street movement could devolve into a mere opportunity for youthful memory-making.
“The only thing I’m afraid of is that we will someday just go home and then we will meet once a year drinking beer and nostalgically remembering what a nice time we had here,” he told a crowd of hundreds. “Promise ourselves that this will not be the case.”
