“The structure of perverse self-assurance is one in which one claims ‘direct access to some figure of the big Other’ so that’ one claims to be ‘able to act directly as the instrument of the big Other’s will’, Zizek writes. I.e. one claims that one acts in the name of progress or in the name of security or in the name of the ideal of enjoyment as a big Other” – http://ift.tt/1JiAK1C
