The whole "everyone repeat what I say" thing is perhaps the single stupidest public speaking technique. If you participate in it you deserve whatever idiocy you end up saying.

This video's title borrows the silliest line from Zizek's whole speech, which is really unfair. He said about a hundred other quotable things, but the lowest common denominator has to jump on the sex with animals thing.
they have no permit for public speaking. who knew you needed one, right? so they aren't allowed to electronically modify their voices, which made it so they must use their human megaphone. seems quite evil to me to not allow megaphone usage.
There's absolutely no reason they can't line up some streaming audio webcast/wi-fi. If they can't legally erect a public loudspeaker, there's no reason the hundred's attending can't listen in on smartphones some with boomboxes.
A low power FM transmitter would also do the trick, if a questionable legally. Better yet, WBAI could broadcast during larger events.
The YT comments.
what are we WAITING for, amirite?!
I really am concerned with Zizek's basic grasp of science.
The last time he talked about some mysterious catastrophe that gave us oil.
Here, he states that "you can become immortal by biogenetics" (? is there an abiogenetics?).
Unless he's talking about mammalian cell cultures, it simply isn't true. We don't really have any real therapies at all that are genetically based yet (well, you might count that total bone marrow transplant, still...), let alone ones that are targeted towards increasing longevity.
ah, that makes sense.

As soon as I saw the body langauge, I knew it was Slavoj Zizek. He is the funniest man alive. He is the Larry David of political theory.
Zizek is great but this excerpt is useless. I'm thinking the human megaphone needs to evolve into something like a Greek Chorus up there with the speaker. Or maybe just the Muppets.
Done with the Fox News Teabagger levels of butthurt over the human megaphone. For fuck's sake, stop being retards and participate in your goddamned country.
