Marxism: Zizek/Peterson: Official Video

I posted this yesterday, but the volume was too low, so now it's been raised.
On February, April 19, 2019, I debated Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek in Toronto, April 19 at the Sony Centre. Dr. Zizek is a Slovenian philosopher and professor at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana, whose works on cultural studies, psychoanalysis and, above all, for the purposes of our debate, Marxism, are world-renowned. The topic? Happiness: Marxism vs Capitalism. This is the official video. Many bootlegs have already been released, but that seems inevitable given our current state of technological capability.
I started with a critique of The Communist Manifesto, which is the central revolutionary document of the Marxist movement (rather than addressing, say, Zizek's work, which wasn't what the debate was about).
It wasn't so obvious for the rest of the discussion that Marxism, per se, comprised the central topic of discussion.
Watch for yourself.
A good article, I think, on Zizek: www.iep.utm.edu/zizek/#H2

  • You’re allowed to read your remarks in a debate? Even in a middle school or high school debate you are not allowed to read, are you? How do we know the Slovenian, Zizek, even wrote his remarks. He may not have written them any more than Joe Biden composed the remarks he makes as he reads the note cards summarizing the destructive orders he might approve but certainly neither planned nor redacted. Nor could he put the index card down and explain to anybody what he’s doing.

  • 51:56 I lost respect for Zizek at this point. How can he commit such a basic error of logic? He is blindly and ungraciously taking the part for the whole and the whole for the part by over-generalizing that religion leads people to do bad things. I am not a religious person. But I know that "bad" people ("bad" is just a term that reflects our ignorance of what mental disorders are all about) are "bad" not because of either the lack of, or adherence to, a religion. They are "bad" for a myriad of other many factors; religion, or the absence of it, is just the catalyst; reducing this problem to "them vs us" is not only over-simplistic, but reflects the incapacity of Zizek to handle a very basic cognitive operation of naïve categorization. He is utterly unable to understand the many continuums (*continua*) that stretch from "bad" people to "good" people. I could go on and on. But to sum up, Zizek is definitely over-rated. You want to understand these issues from the point of view of a much more competent person? Listen to Zapolsky. [maybe the problem is that he already has a prefabricated discourse that was not well delivered here, but it has probably been better delivered somewhere else] Yes, ideologies are dangerous, but anti-ideologism is itself a form of ideologism. Just saying. 53:40 To be fair, this is aslo a pretty good remark and deep insight by Zizek (most of us realized this at some point of our lives, but not all of us were/are able to verbalize the issue as well as Zizek does here): "Don't fall in love with your suffering. Never presume that your suffering is in itself a proof of your authenticity. Renunciation of pleasure can easily turn into pleasure of renunciation itself." 55:10 Once again, this is quite a great insight from Zizek. The (very complex) mental pattern of "narrative schemata" (look for Mark Turner's book "The Literary Mind") is an underestimated, underrated and overlooked social and individual issue that should be discussed much more often both at school and within intellectual circles. 1:00:04 Nice quotation from Hegel: "Evil resides in the gaze which sees Evil everywhere" I think the original quote is though "Evil resides in the very gaze which perceives Evil all around itself" I believe. But perhaps it is a sheer matter of translation (that, or probably Hegel wrote about this in different texts phrasing it in different ways at different times). My verdict: Both Peterson and Zizek have strong and weak points.

  • Marxism was a cult-like scam that power-hungry authoritarians used to demagogue to the "working class". Marxists got them to fight and die for their murderous revolutions. This created a power vacuum that they filled themselves. I will never be a Marxist or a leftist ever again.

  • Zizek couldn't defend Marx's most famous and influential works - and whether he likes it or not - the whole concept of Marxism. He also spent a lot of time admitting there was much good about Capitalism. Basically he skirted around the edges and avoided the central point of this whole debate - because he knew he'd lose. Perhaps he has finally grown up but is in so deep he cannot admit that Marxism is dangerous and stupid - the conclusion most intelligent people eventually arrive at.

  • Zizek's pessimism is causing him to draw irrational conclusions. Peterson is a clinical psychologist, who has extensively studied behavioral and evolutionary psychology... it is very likely that he has a far more accurately fine tuned perception of the balance of malevolence/benevolence is throughout humanity... you'd think he would be more pessimistic due to encountering so many problem cases... and yet... apparently, he perceives that the evidence is in favor of optimism. Zizek in his pessimism, believes that humanity is too capable of malevolence... so we must create structures of power to use force in an attempt to prevent that malevolence from occurring, or rather, from getting out of control. But what he doesn't see... is that, in creating that source of power... you just created a magnet that invites the highly intelligent, highly driven evil members of society to infiltrate and take over that power structure... and wield it how they see fit. It is the nature of centralized power monopolies to devolve into fraud, corruption, and abuse... given enough time it always eventually bypasses any meaningful checks and balances to gain more power. In a society where the consumers vote with their dollars on all matters... then the golden rule thrives... because greedy people who are short sighted... and pursue their selfish ends to the detriment of others... their sucess cannot be sustainable. Their greed teachs them that cooperating in a civil society is the most sustainable profit path. And for those not competent enough to grasp that... will fail and fall by the wayside in due time. But by and large society understands how to naturally form mutually beneficial relationships and arrangements... finding a societal equilibrium.

  • This all comes down to whether one believes the collective is primarily formed by the individual (Peterson) or the individual is formed by the collective (Zizek). We each have to choose what we believe in this respect because it is mostly impossible to separate the two. I prefer the former (JP's) position that gives agency to the individual to act rather than transfer responsibility to the collective.

It is oppressive more today than 10 years ago because it fails to continue the economic growth that was occuring even 15 years ago. So they restrict freedom of the professional classes and intellectuals which are the most dangerous for the rule of the totalitarian CCP especially now that the promise of continuous economic growth cannot be maintained.

  • Maybe the whole problem is just that of giving these new amalgamated concepts a propper name that isn't derived from names of way past revolutionary people, which are loaded with all kinds of other concepts those people dealt with too? As Peterson refered to Zizeks view as Zizekism, maybe we should start calling the post-modern marxism or whatever by the names of leading representative people of the respective kind. But this is where Zizeks question for Peterson to name some of them is quite the difficult point, because there doesn't seem to be a leading fugure to these ideological progressions, but just a collective push from ideologically cestpooling minority groups. So there is hardly any individual to blame and name things after if not the last great revolutionaries of the 20th or 21th centuries. Should we call these things Victim-Culturism, Anti-Patriarchism, Snowflakeism? Trans-Bias'ism? Idiotism?

He raises much more intellectually stimulating points than say Sam Harris, who I find to be more superficial and not as challenging for JP as Zizek. He probably doesn't get more invitations because - like in true communist fashion - the glitz doesn't attract him.

  • I'm not sure why I've seen a consensus here and there that this discussion was somehow "boring" or a "failure." Yeah, it probably wasn't framed properly because Dr. Peterson was led to believe he would be debating against someone who was going to defend Marxism (since, you know, he was the one who invited anyone who wanted to defend Marxism to come debate him and Zizek was the one who volunteered), but that's really nobody's fault and it doesn't make the discussion less interesting. At the end of the day, two great thinkers came together to tackle important existential issues, they explained their views to each other as honestly and as thoroughly as they could, they found places where they agreed and disagreed and explained why, and everyone involved probably learned something new. I think that's a pretty cool outcome.

  • This Zizek is like all socialist/communist/totalitarian/statist/fascists. He lives in the west. He attended western universities. He enjoys living in a capitalist society. Why doesn't he move to China or Cuba or Venezuela. We have to remember socialism is never for the socialist. It is for everyone else. Lenin lived in luxury in the Kremlin. Hitler, as well lived in luxury at Berghof, while most of Germany struggled to keep a roof overhead. Stalin had multiple domiciles and the Russian people had none. Mao kept his actual domicile secret. He was often photographed in a small bare room for propaganda purposes. He often told the Chinese people he was struggling as they were. His fat robust appearance told a different story compared to his starving countrymen. Marxists are liar. They have to be in order to advance such idiotic notions in the public arena. They never tell you what the truth really is until it is too late to do anything about it. Remember Joseph Stalin's daughter died in Wisconsin. She defected not because she abhorred communism but because when her father died she lost her station in the new government. She would have to live like any common Russian. That just wasn't her cup of tea.

  • This was a truly interesting debate. It was healthy conversation between 2 schools of thought that mostly found points of agreement rather than dissent. Which is why I find it laughable the claim that Dr Peterson lost... He wasn't there to win...he went there to learn... And I'm sure he did. Slavoj Zizek is more vehement in his speech so it's easy for those who skim the surface of ideas to view this as a competition between 2 foes. Pay attention and you'd learn a thing or two like Dr Peterson.

  • Something stuck in my mind when Zizek asked Peterson "Where are the Marxists?". James Lindsay, in his recent interview with Michael Malice, mentioned (or vice versa - I can't remember who said it) something about how Critical Race Theorists (whom Dr. Peterson would call Postmodern Neo-Marxists) like to get close to power, but not grasp it completely. They like to be the power behind the throne, because being in the spotlight makes you a target. The Marxists are there, but they're like Wormtongue in Théoden's court in Rohan (from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings), whispering rotten words into the King's ear. It's funny that Zizek called them "vampires afraid of garlic and sunlight", because he was right. That's what they are.

  • Zizek opening with China as a shining example of happiness, communism and capitalism combined, neglects that China only got to the economic position they are in by exploiting their status as a developing nation in the world market and not playing by the same rules that developed nations had to adhere to in the global marketplace. If it were not for the concessions given China with regards to pegging currency, no free trade but conditional trade. e.g. every corporation that wishes to do business in China must partner with a Chinese company and let their trade secrets be stolen and the mindlessness of globalist leaders who through ideology allowed China to get away with it long after they were supposed to float their currency and open trade and join the world economy as a fully fledged member sometime around the year 2000. As to happiness, shall we ask the Uyghurs, what of Tibet and the Falun Gong. While many will ascribe happiness to being under authoritarian rule, there are just as many who shun authoritarian rule and the overstepping of governments into controlling the live and thoughts of the citizenry.

China would have been like Russia and the economy would have collapsed. That was the truth about the USSR. Can anyone name me a Russia brand car on an American highway? They didn't have the wherewithal to produce in a restricted society. This is why China progresses by stealing the secrets of others. They are incapable of idea generation in a modern world because they adhere to concepts of a century ago. Name me a Chinese brand car on the road in any country besides China. They just can't seem to get that going because Europeans, which have had excellent motor automobiles for over a century, know them to be inferior in all facets like design, reliability and style.

  • This Zizek guy starts talking about China as a non-precedent image of communist leadership and role model. People moving from rural places to cities to move to the middle class is technicalities to immerse individuals in an ideology of self sustain and progress as a whole (Which is truly false). I live in Venezuela, even though the topic is extremely broad, I will mention that by making the social economic classes spectrum much narrower, it means for everyone to have the same issues at the same levels. Poor people will stay living from welfare, the middle class has been eradicated. By that I mean what you would expect a middle class quality of life or "privilegies" are non-existant. As a 25 year old Chemical Engineer with no experience the current pay rates don't come close to bearing living expenses... for a week... The socialist construct being promoted by some ideologist with voices that represent current minorities topics are actually pushing this agenda onto people who look for better in the wrong models. The issue that a great thing can have side steps is not to be replaced by the wishfulness of a change, that we currently DO NOT NEED.

He essentially agrees with everything and yet disagrees. He speaks with witty observations of those axioms that "interest" him without ever coming to a point of real understanding as does Dr. Peterson who has organized well-thought-out positions. Dr. Peterson, stresses confronting one's own limitations in a therapeutic context to improve one's life which is later reflected in the betterment of society. Zizek offers nothing more witticisms without any formula to self-improvement and hence the improvement of society.

  • Peterson criticises a book because its 170 years old but believes a book written 2000 years ago should be taken as the guide for our morality???

    • @om khetz i just read the words of God. Not man's interpretation. The most perfect being should have been able to just say " you shall not keep slaves" Rather than rely on the morals of our modern Society to end slavery

    • @Steven P ah I love how you brushed past the hundreds of teachings and hours of studying done to understand these stories just for you to come back with a half assed pathetic point about a "flaw" which has been debated time and time again only to be regurgitated by new age atheists. You're not worth my time

    • The book from 170 years ago is a calling for violent revolution in order to get somewhat of a "utopia" The book from 2000 years ago has moral stories that outline the physiological and cultural influences upon society and philosophical findings that we still learn from today.
