To each his own and I will no longer respond to Zizek material. Go ahead, discuss among yourselves, whichever Zizak you speak of he is an inconsequential minor writer that is of no interest to me. Enjoy your conversation but try to get your facts straight before you send me hunting wild geese. I will not fact check secound hand sources especially those that disintrance me. If you feel compelled to check that site I applaude your persistance, I really do not care who the guy is. Bill
