The Death of the Liberal Class

Chris Hedges gave a really good lecture on TVO’s Big Ideas about his book Death of the Liberal Class. In the lecture he argues that liberal society has failed to play its part in creating a just civilization, which is a pretty damning statement of key assumptions of our societal control systems.

I encourage you to listen to (or watch) this lecture has Hedges has a lot of big statements that can really get you thinking.

Slavoj Zizek: Catastrophic But Not Serious

Slavoj Zizek gave a talk at CUNY and Fora has it online, which is pretty handy. It’s a good lecture, if a little long (I suggest skipping to about the 10min mark), that covers quite a bit.

Zizek goes into our relationship with nature, the material and immaterial world, and how it relates to politics and religion. Definitely a good lecture!

It gets me thinking about how do games fit into his understanding of authenticity and what the meaning of games actually is (if anything).
