Sentences (#16)

Zizek hasn’t quite got there yet, but NRx is clearly where he’s heading:

It’s my belief that modern capitalism is developing in a direction in which it functions better without a fully developed democracy.

Some additional snippets: “I think what we are feeling is not a question of yes or no to capitalism, but that of the future of our Western democracy. Something dark is forming on the horizon and the first wind storms have already reached us. … The rise of the so-called capitalism with Asian values in the past 10 years at the very least raises doubts and questions: What if authoritarian capitalism on the Chinese model is an indication that liberal democracy as we understand it is no longer a condition for, and driving force of, economic development and instead stands in its way? … The 20th century is over.”

(Of course, this is mainly trolling by a “eurocentric leftist” — but one who (though demented) is perceptive enough to let things creep in.)
