Philosopher Slavoj Žižek doesn’t seem very happy these days. Yesterday he published a harsh response to the lukewarm reception NYRB and the Guardian gave his recently published opus, Less Than Nothing. And his declaration that “99% of people are boring idiots” in an recent interview  does little to soften his image.

    That seems an unfair characterization of Žižek’s response. Gray’s egregious misreading of his arguments, particularly regarding anti-Semitism, demand a defense from the author, which he has now supplied.

    And 99% of people may not actually be boring idiots, but they do seem to present themselves as such.
