Žižek on Egypt: "This is universalism at work"


Speaking to Al Jazeera English today about the future of Egypt and whether the revolt can lead to real change, Slavoj Žižek, author of Living in the End Times, states that Western powers may be afraid to acknowledge it, but what we see today in Egypt is "direct proof that freedom is universal." 

Žižek's co-panelist Tariq Ramadan explores the idea that Western fear of radical Islam has undermined support for the Egyptian people, referencing Žižek's recent article for the Guardian, "Why Fear the Arab Revolutionary Spirit?"
