“The sadist occupies the place of the object ‘to the benefit of an­ [imagined] other, for whose jouissance he exercises his action’. The executioner works for the enjoyment of the Other, not for his own: he becomes a sole instrument of the Other’s Will.” – S.Zizek – “And in so-called “totalitarianism”, this illegal agent-instrument of the law, the Sadeian executioner, appears as such in the shape of the Party, agent-instrument of historical Will. ..By means of occupying himself the place of the object – of making himself the agent-executor of the Other’s Will – he avoids the division constitutive of the subject and transposes his division upon his other.” – Slavoj Zizek
