Hey hey, settle down, it's a Zizek joke. He's a pretty horrid accelerationist kinda guy, and that's what he says famously. It's not literal at all.

ok, I definitely missed that reference. But also, I put an emphasis on the word "finally" to point out that that's where you're implying that ziq has always "eaten out of the trashcan of ideology", and that just in this instance, where you think he's supporting an accelerationist idea, you think that it's just another example of it.

I haven't heard much of Zizek, but I get the feeling I wouldn't like his stuff; though I do like the visuals of describing someone "eating out of the trashcan of ideology". I could describe a lot of people who definitely fit that.

Don't you worry, he's quite terrible about everything other than that documentary.
