Who is this Slavoj Žižek fellow ?

Speaking at Occupy Wall Street:

Remember: the problem is not corruption or greed. The problem is the system that pushes you to give up. Beware not only of the enemies. But also of false friends who are already working to dilute this process. In the same way you get coffee without caffeine, beer without alcohol, ice cream without fat. They will try to make this into a harmless moral protest. They think (??? unintelligible). But the reason we are here is that we have enough of the world where to recycle coke cans… ….Starbucks cappuccino. Where 1% goes to the world’s starving children. It is enough to make us feel good. After outsourcing work and torture. After the marriage agencies are now outsourcing even our love life, daily.

So this 'avowed' Leftist believes people shouldn't be able to marry non-Americans ? Or shouldn't have the freedom to choose who they want as their partner regardless of national boundaries ?

The point being if someone feels free to publicly shame, or critique with the implicit aim of censure, a person's personal decision in affairs of the heart, they are totalitarian in mindset.

What a load of sanctimonious prattle most of the intellectual Left is.
