Slavoj Zizek, the ‘most dangerous philosopher in the West’, joined Tara Reade on her RT podcast ‘The Politics of Survival’ to discuss the censorship currently developing and taking place on both sides of the political aisle.
new forms of “de facto censorship” are emerging today, Zizek told Reade during their extensive conversation, and much of it is starting to come from the liberals, who are introducing a “even worse censorship” hidden under the guise of “progressive” Politics.
“One word can literally ruin your career” noted Zizek, the author of “Heaven in Disorder.” He and Reade turned to ‘Harry Potter’ actress Emma Watson to prove their point. She even received a backlash from Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations after she recently posted an image of a pro-Palestine protest.
“Anything you say can be used for any purpose” Zizek spoke about the accusations of anti-Semitism leveled at Watson and others, noting what to do “abstract” the arguments help qualify certain opinions as hateful.

This de facto control and censorship derives from “unfreedom”, the author said at one point, noting that Julian Assange currently faces numerous charges for simply posting material that cast a negative light on the US government and others.
“You are free, but you are free in certain coordinates which are tightly controlled and regulated” he said.
