Zizek Says Left Fails To Answer Global Crises With Valid Alternatives

Global celebrity philosopher Slavoj Zizek says that the left has failed to address recent crises in the West with valid alternatives. In a wide-ranging interview with RFE/RL in Ljubljana, the radical left-wing Slovenian said that democratic capitalism is being overtaken by a more authoritarian version. He also criticised rich Arab countries, saying they had done nothing to help solve the refugee crisis in recent years. (RFE/RL's Georgian Service/GPB weekly TV program Red Zone)
