Inthese troubled times, even the most pessimistic diagnosis of our futureends with an uplifting hint that things might not be as bad as allthat, that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Yet, arguesSlavoj Žižek, it is only when we have admit to ourselves that oursituation is completely hopeless - that the light at the end of thetunnel is in fact the headlight of a train approaching us from theopposite direction - that fundamental change can be brought about.
Surveyingthe various challenges in the world today, from mass migration andgeopolitical tensions to terrorism, the explosion of rightist populismand the emergence of new radical politics - all of which, in their ownway, express the impasses of global capitalism - Žižek explores whetherthere still remains the possibility for genuine change. Today, heproposes, the only true question is, or should be, this: do we endorsethe predominant acceptance of capitalism as a fact of human nature, ordoes today's capitalism contain strong enough antagonisms to prevent itsinfinite reproduction? Can we, he asks, move beyond the failure ofsocialism, and beyond the current wave of populist rage, and initiateradical change before the train hits?
