“[This is] laying bare … strategies of legitimizing suffering: [he] ..rejects … that his suffering can have any meaning [as] either punishment for his past sins or a trial of his faith” – SLAVOJ ZIZEK on the emancipatory potential of the story of Job and how he rightly rejects to make his suffering into something that defines him. He is progressive in how he doesn’t have an identity, or how his very identity springs from the impossibility of having an identity. Suffering and hardship is what is used in ideology to create group identities and he refuses this ideological key mechanism. http://ift.tt/1LiuX91
