Billions of dollars have been hastily poured into the global banking system in a frantic attempt at financial stabilization. So why has it not been possible to bring the same forces to bear in addressing world poverty and environmental crisis?In thisMoreBillions of dollars have been hastily poured into the global banking system in a frantic attempt at financial stabilization. So why has it not been possible to bring the same forces to bear in addressing world poverty and environmental crisis?In this take-no-prisoners analysis, Slavoj Žižek frames the moral failures of the modern world in terms of the epoch-making events of the first decade of this century.

What he finds is the old one-two punch of history: the jab of tragedy, the righthook of farce. In the attacks on 9/11 and the global credit crunch, liberalism died twice: as a political doctrine and as an economic theory.First As Tragedy, Then As Farce is a call for the left to reinvent itself in the light of our desperate historical situation.

The time for liberal, moralistic blackmail is over.
