“‘anxiety arises when we are compelled to confront our freedom. (It is the same in Kant: when we are able to identify a pathological cause of an act of ours, this cannot but be a relief from the anxiety of freedom’, Zizek says. Insofar as all acts are pathological, desire itself is the ultimate law and to discover one’s freedom in this way rather than to neurotically selfchastize by misperceiving every activity as unfreely informed by motives that are defined by a perverse law blaming us for our unfreedom while asking us to find nonpathological acts when those do not exist.” – http://ift.tt/1UkLtsZ
