Zizek Accused of Plagiarism


Prominent moist cultural philosopher Slavoj Zizek has been accused of plagiarism. Apparently, the passages stood out because they conveyed meaning clearly. Ha ha.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of the passages:

To make matters worse, the original text is apparently from a "white supremacist journal": http://gawker.com/slavoj-zizek-sorta-kinda-admits-plagiarizing-white-supr-1604590014

Oh dear. Zizek has since offered an apology of sorts. Given that the clarification is also uncharacteristically lucid, maybe another accusation will surface in the next few days...

Here's the lesson, folks: try to write comprehensibly in the first place, that way, nobody will spot your plagiarism... no, wait...
