“this will not to be […] has to be omnipotent enough to create the evil and the error of being that it has to be omnipotent enough to annihilate its own work and undo itself.” – MAURICE BLONDEL on the selfdestructive deathwish of those who want to do away with the uncontrollable too-aliveness in themselves. This hatred against the otherness in oneself, against the kernel of life that drives one like a foreign force which has a hold over us is despised by people who are against anything they cannot control, anything they cannot paranoiacally deaden down. These obsessive types, who have not loved and who do not know yet how to sublimate the death drive into the lacanian drive, are the types that drive the wars in the world as if they feel only better the more they can extinguish life. http://ift.tt/1G8Tubr

“[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
