Žižek & Rubbish

Slavoj Žižek argues that we must learn to love our garbage, that hating pollution is like hating nature — and ourselves — and a dangerous political choice. Convergence seems like a wonderful first step in this direction, a chance to fall in love with what we loathe and to re imagine our relationship with it, and maybe come to understand the ways in which waste is really an extension of who we are and what we do.
