We Are The Awakening – Slavoj Žižek

We are called losers. But the true losers are down there on Wall Street. They were bailed out by billions of our money. We are called socialists. But here there already is socialism for the rich. They say we don’t respect private property. But in the 2008 financial breakdown, more hard-earned private property was destroyed then if all of us here were to be destroying it night and day for weeks. They tell you we are dreamers. The true dreamers are those who think things can go on indefinitely the way they are. We are not dreamers, we are the awakening from the dream which is turning into a nightmare. We are not destroying anything. We are only witnessing how the system is destroying itself.
