Beyond being a good meme, he's unironically one of the better philosophers we have now. Rare enough to find a philosopher of any type who engages with modern culture rather than retreat into ivory-tower obscurantism, rarer still to find a Leftist with a sense of humour.

Sure, but they do it using dense specialist language and piling on references to previous philosophers, so they're almost unintelligible to the layman. Zizek uses simple illustrations like the trash can or They Live, giving a popular appeal most lack - there's a reason he caught on here rather than Badieau or Blackburn or someone.

I think there are two main points against this: most of what he writes about may make certain interpretations/aspects more accessible to the """layman""", but what he's writing about is often very dense and is hard even for philosophers, or has a plurality of interpretations. Not all of what he writes in that sense is even straightforward.

It isn't culturally relevant: it's mostly normative (maybe that's what's confusing you?). In an odd way Zizek mostly performs a kind of positive analysis on what is, whereas Feser and the thinkers he's writing from are very much about hypotheticals and normative shit. Where they both kind of meet is in Nagel tho, I've noted that there's at least superficially some relatedness between Zizek and Nagel but I've not had so much of a chance to explore it.

psychoanalysis gets shat on way too much for what it is, especially when looked at from a philosophical perspective rather than a simply analytic perspective.

i'm actually in a course right now called Psychoanalysis and Politics, and it starts with Freud, moves through Lacan, Marcuse, Abraham and Torok, to Zizek, who we are reading for Wednesday. So I can't say much about Zizek as of yet, but I do know that psychoanalysis can be applied to a whole range of political and philosophical topics, and truly can be a good foundation for a philosophical discourse, as long as it is engaged with intellectually, rather than simply with an analytic bent.

Freud himself delves into politics by the end of his career, with Civilization and its Discontents, wherein he essentially psychoanalyzes modern civilization, using his methods from the individual level, and discusses how civilization could get to the point it has gotten to (published in 1930 originally, right before Hitler, but anti-Semitic sentiment + xenophobia were rampant in Germany/Austria at the time) through the various pathologies etc. that man has grown into.

He also has a book called Group Psychology which analyzes the makeup of a group, talks about the psychology of cults, religion, and the military, and how followers differ from leaders in those groups. A very poignant political text.

Also, Freud's theories of trauma proposed in Beyond the Pleasure Principle are still relevant today, and are the touchstone for any modern theory of trauma in the "serious" discipline of psychology.

Basically, to dismiss someone because he "uses psychoanalysis as a base for his philosophy" is ignorant and dismissive, and frankly reductive to the popular, vulgar understanding of Freud as some nutjob cokehead who didn't know what he was doing.

Holy shit my dude I strongly suggest you look for a doctor, you seem to be failing from a serious case of protestant ethics.

Full automatization of work is precisely what will let you look for your true potential. What do you think is better: Staying home and reading whatever it is that you want to and doing routines aimed at maximizing development of every set of muscles or toiling away in menial tasks, reading complete noise information all along and / or doing repetitive tasks all along?

I think the whole world knows this, no one takes Freud 100% seriously but everyone also knows that a lot of his work is pretty much on point, and also extremely important in modern humanities as a whole.

Then, there are the retarded americans, who think that filling kids up with prescription drugs once they hit 8 so no one has to recognize the inner workings of their subconscious and face some trauma in their lifes.

US Capitalism is disgusting. And yes, "Safe spaces" and SJWs are a direct result of america's obsession of "Feeling good".

It never stops at trading though. Think of how businesses and your own government interact. Now imagine that also happening on a global scale. Huge companies don't just influence national policy, they are eventually "forced" to influence global policy leading to global homogeneity on an economic level which in theory would come to influence foreign cultures and politics. Capitalist entities will always drive for more profit and efficiency. This eventually grows to a global scale. Capitalism that doesn't lead to globalization means capitalism that isn't doing what it's meant to do.

What do you mean by "globalism"? The alt-right meme or "globalization"? People are really deep down all degenerates and the more economic prosperity you have the more liberal of a culture will develop e.g. 80s conservative economic liberalism lead to a culture of vulgar cultural liberalism developing. Capitalism must eliminate the nation state in the end because it gets in the way of unrestricted free economic activity and movement of economic factors preventing any global equilibrium from emerging.
