Žižek on why Americans are 'digging their own grave'

 In this 2008 interview, renowned Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek shares his thoughts on the legacy of 1968 and the state of US politics with Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman.

He also discusses Barack Obama, and explains why he believes America would be better off if Americans could not vote in their own elections.

Žižek will appear alongside Goodman and WikiLeaks editor-and-chief Julian Assange at a Frontline Club event this Saturday (2 July) at the Troxy in East London. More information and tickets for the event can be found here.
