Europe is Kaput – Long live Europe! Slavoj Žižek, Yanis Varoufakis, Julian Assange (ENG/Español)

We are starting a new LADA RAY RECOMMENDS series on Lada Ray YT channel. Usually, posts in this series will be in English, or with English subs. Sometimes, we may have Spanish or German translations. We will also have some pieces in Russian. The views expressed in such pieces may not coincide with Lada’s own, but we think they are interesting or valuable and are worth hearing. Any comments can be left here on FT, as discussion will be disabled on YouTube. Let’s see how it goes with this trial run.

Europe is Kaput – Long live Europe!

Slavoj Žižek, Yanis Varoufakis, Julian Assange

(ENG/Español subs)

This controversial piece gives a lot of food for thought.

Philosopher Slavoj Žižek, former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange discuss Europe’s future. With the recent economic crisis in Greece, unprecedented challenges to centralised European policy, and the lack of consensus on the ongoing refugee crisis, many would agree that Europe faces its greatest ever predicament. Slavoj Žižek, regarded as ‘the most dangerous philosopher in the West’ (The New Republic), and Yanis Varoufakis, self-described ‘erratic Marxist’ and economic ‘rock-star’ (Business Insider and other publications), met in Croatia in 2013. They have never appeared together on the public stage – until now. Take your seat to hear them discuss the urgent task of building a different and more democratic Europe. The conversation explores the contradictions of late capitalism and some of the solutions that might just save the European project. It is moderated by Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat.

  1. Democracy is communism. It always is short lived before it converts to a dictatorship, and was defined as communism more than 2000 years ago. The word democracy has been presented falsely as a good system while back at the ranch (so to speak) it is probably THE worst there is. That is why the communist West were all forced under democracies, they are all corrupt, they are all bankrupt, and they all serve the world power. There is not one singe example of a democracy that has ever been successful in the history of the world.

    As for the video, Lada, I think it is disgusting. Open borders ? One Europe ? That is just a blow up to convince people to destroy who they are. It would be like opening your borders and let Africa in there. Why don’t you ?

    I looked at a video where an English farmer in Russia asked Pres Putin a question. The first thing Putin asked him is why is he in Russia, ok. Who you are is very important, because if you give up your identity then you have no country. If you don’t have your own land to put your feet on, you have no right of existence and you become a beggar and you are at the mercy of others… who will abuse you. That is why countries have borders.

    Here is a better video instead – The Call of the Oaken Grove (Europa Arise!)


  2. Great video Lada we had three great thinkers talking about real issues effecting Europe and the whole World for once.


  3. Excellent recommendation Lada; thanks.

    Happy new year 🙂


  4. Hi, Lady Lada ! Sorry for being off topic, but recently Pepe Escobar posted something interesting and it is related to Saudi Oil vs Russia Oil, i think you would like it, here;


  5. Hi Fanie,
    To your question: you can contact the Administration of the Russian President. I’m sure there is contact info online. Any president’s administration receives millions of such requests. If there is an interest, I’m sure they’ll reply.
    I hope this answers your question and closes this issue.
