在巴黎恐袭三日后,斯洛文尼亚哲学家齐泽克在左翼的《In These Times》网刊发表了长文《尾随着巴黎袭击,左派必须拥抱其西方激进根源了》,对巴黎事件进行了评论,并回应了一系列针对他此前文章《挪威不存在》的批评。


A!@B h]'j0e d0In the Wake of Paris Attacks the Left Must Embrace Its Radical tern Roots《尾随着巴黎袭击,左派必须拥抱其西方激进根源了》


r1vTcC;_'w0In the first half of 2015, Europe was preoccupied by radical emancipatory movements (Syriza and Podemos), while in the second half the attention shifted to the “humanitarian” topic of the refugees. Class struggle was literally repressed and replaced by the liberal-cultural topic of tolerance and solidarity. With the Paris terror killings on Friday, November 13, even this topic (which still refers to large socio-economic issues) is now eclipsed by the simple opposition of all democratic forces caught in a merciless war with forces of terror.心理学空间~sAi9b+H1[

FH!EP%e[ Km^e0It is easy to imagine what will follow: paranoiac search for ISIS agents among the refugees. (Media already gleefully reported that two of the terrorists entered Europe through Greece as refugees.) The greatest victims of the Paris terror attacks will be refugees themselves, and the true winners, behind the platitudes in the style of je suis Paris, will be simply the partisans of total war on both sides. This is how we should really condemn the Paris killings: not just to engage in shows of anti-terrorist solidarity but to insist on the simple cui bono (for whose benefit?) question.心理学空间#m9EnemKOy9nbL

接下来的事很容易猜想:偏执的在难民中搜索ISIS成员(媒体已经欢呼雀跃地报道了两名恐怖分子以难民的身份通过希腊进入了欧洲)。巴黎恐怖袭击最大的受害者将是难民自己,而真正的赢家,躲在卿本巴黎佳人之陈词滥调后面的,将是双方全面战争的伙帮。这就是我们本应谴责巴黎杀戮的方式:不只是着手声援反对恐怖主义的团结,而且坚持于为何目的(为了谁的利益)这种简单的问题。心理学空间&M @2S!hv W!}[

There should be no “deeper understanding” of the ISIS terrorists (in the sense of “their deplorable acts are nonetheless reactions to European brutal interventions”); they should be characterized as what they are: the Islamo-Fascist counterpart of the European anti-immigrant racists—the two are the two sides of the same coin. Let’s bring class struggle back—and the only way to do it is to insist on global solidarity of the exploited.心理学空间&Sk#CMH0C@wk


[`v(O&s y0The deadlock that global capitalism finds itself in is more and more palpable. How to break out of it? Fredric Jameson recently proposed global militarization of society as a mode of emancipation: Democratically motivated grassroots movements are seemingly doomed to failure, so perhaps it’s best to break global capitalism’s vicious cycle through “militarization,” which means suspending the power of self-regulating economies. Perhaps the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe provides an opportunity to test this option.

It is at least clear that what is needed to stop the chaos is large-scale coordination and organization, which includes but is not limited to: reception centers near to the crisis (Turkey, Lebanon, the Libyan coast), transportation of those granted entrance to European way stations, and their redistribution to potential settlements. The military is the only agent that can do such a big task in an organized way. To claim that such a role for the military smells of a state of emergency is redundant. When you have tens of thousands of people passing through densely populated areas without organization you have an emergency state—and it is in a state of emergency that parts of Europe are right now. Therefore, it is madness to think that such a process can be left to unwind freely. If nothing else, refugees need provisions and medical care.心理学空间UN Zs9u5V3J5i%@

For instance, the right to “free movement” should be limited, if for no other reason than the fact that it doesn’t exist among the refugees, whose freedom of movement is already dependent on their class. Thus, the criteria of acceptance and settlement have to be formulated in a clear and explicit way—whom and how many to accept, where to relocate them, etc. The art here is to find the middle road between following the desires of the refugees (taking into account their wish to move to countries where they already have relatives, etc.) and the capacities of different countries.

Another taboo we must address concerns norms and rules. It is a fact that most of the refugees come from a culture that is incompatible with Western European notions of human rights. Tolerance as a solution (mutual respect of each other’s sensitivities) obviously doesn’t work: fundamentalist Muslims find it impossible to bear our blasphemous images and reckless humor, which we consider a part of our freedoms. Western liberals, likewise, find it impossible to bear many practices of Muslim culture.

@!}:N0B h0L0b;Bx0

x cw#~`7Z0另一个我们必须解决的禁忌是规范和规则。事实是,大多数难民来自于与西欧人权观念格格不入的文化。宽容作为一个解决方案(相互尊重对方的敏感性),显然是行不通的:原教旨主义的穆斯林觉得无法忍受我们亵渎神明图像和鲁莽的幽默,而这些又被我们视为自由的一部分。同样地,西方的自由主义者觉得无法容忍穆斯林文化的许多做法。

In short, things explode when members of a religious community consider the very way of life of another community as blasphemous or injurious, whether or not it constitutes a direct attack on their religion. This is the case when Muslim extremists attack gays and lesbians in the Netherlands and Germany, and it is the case when traditional French citizens view a woman covered by a burka as an attack on their French identity, which is exactly why they find it impossible to remain silent when they encounter a covered woman in their midst.


P3mS;M"t |0总之,事情发生爆炸时,一个宗教社区的成员认为其他社区的生活方式是亵渎或有害的,无论其是否构成了对他们的宗教的直接攻击。出现这种情况时,穆斯林极端分子攻击在荷兰和德国同性恋者,在这种情形下,传统的法国公民认为被黑袍包裹的女人是对自己法国身份的攻击,这就是为什么当他们遭遇到包裹严实的妇女就在他们中间时,几乎是不可能保持沉默的原因。

I]/OJ3J;BO6g3C0To curb this propensity, one has to do two things. First, formulate a minimum set of norms obligatory for everyone that includes religious freedom, protection of individual freedom against group pressure, the rights of women, etc.—without fear that such norms will appear “Eurocentric.” Second, within these limits, unconditionally insist on the tolerance of different ways of life. And if norms and communication don’t work, then the force of law should be applied in all its forms.


@,x5O nx-@|A4g:hL(A0要遏制这种倾向,必须做两件事情。首先,为每个人制定一套最低限度的强制性规范,包括宗教自由、保护个人自由以对抗群体压力、妇女权利等,而不用担心这样的规范将出现“欧洲中心主义”。其次,在这些限制范围内,无条件地坚持对不同生活方式的容忍。同时,如果规范和沟通不起作用时,法律的效力应适用于所有形式。

e ^ Xz]3Jd0Another taboo that must be overcome involves the equation of any reference to the European emancipatory legacy to cultural imperialism and racism. In spite of the (partial) responsibility of Europe for the situation from which refugees are fleeing, the time has come to drop leftist mantras critiquing Eurocentrism.心理学空间{6}s ^/e~

5Zn@ YI/_%eW0~0The lessons of the post-9/11 world are that the Francis Fukuyama dream of global liberal democracy is at an end and that, at the level of the world economy, corporate capitalism has triumphed worldwide. In fact, the Third World nations that embrace this world order are those now growing at a spectacular rate. The mask of cultural diversity is sustained by the actual universalism of global capital; even better if global capitalism’s political supplement relies on so-called “Asian values.”心理学空间#q*tmC!?

.gx0U N\'[0后911时代的主要教训是,弗朗西斯·福山的全球自由民主的梦想已经结束,并且,公司资本主义已经在世界经济水平中战胜了世界。事实上,拥抱这个世界秩序的第三世界国家目前正以惊人的速度成长着。文化多样性的面具仰仗全球资本的实际普遍性;如果全球资本主义政治的补充依赖于所谓的“亚洲价值观”那就更好了。心理学空间2y?(N*pS9g'A

Global capitalism has no problem in accommodating itself to a plurality of local religions, cultures and traditions. So the irony of anti-Eurocentrism is that, on behalf of anti-colonialism, one criticizes the West at the very historical moment when global capitalism no longer needs Western cultural values in order to smoothly function. In short, one tends to reject Western cultural values at the very time when, critically reinterpreted, many of those values (egalitarianism, fundamental rights, freedom of the press, the welfare-state, etc.) can serve as a weapon against capitalist globalization. Did we already forget that the entire idea of Communist emancipation as envisaged by Marx is a thoroughly “Eurocentric” one?

The next taboo worth leaving behind is that any critique of the Islamic right is an example of “Islamophobia.” Enough of this pathological fear of many Western liberal leftists who worry about being deemed guilty of Islamophobia. For example, Salman Rushdie was denounced for unnecessarily provoking Muslims and thus (partially, at least) responsible for the fatwa condemning him to death. The result of such a stance is what one can expect in such cases: The more Western liberal leftists wallow in their guilt, the more they are accused by Muslim fundamentalists of being hypocrites who try to conceal their hatred of Islam.心理学空间rP$tF3{9bU(Ep


t/c#Y7?1A@7K0This constellation perfectly reproduces the paradox of the superego: The more you obey what the pseudo-moral agency that the sadistic and primitive superego demands of you, the more guilty you are of moral masochism and identification with the aggressor. Thus, it is as if the more you tolerate Islamic fundamentalism, the stronger its pressure on you will be.心理学空间]RgSy,K`

HV6X Z0}J0And one can be sure that the same holds for the influx of immigrants: The more Western Europe will be open to them, the more it will be made to feel guilty that it did not accept even more of them. There will never be enough of them. And with those who are here, the more tolerance one displays towards their way of life, the more one will be made guilty for not practicing enough tolerance.心理学空间|9E7Vjw1^{7tO

而且可以肯定,同样适用于新移民的涌入:西欧越是对他们开放,未接受更多的移民就越会致使其感到内疚。他们永远不会适可而止。而对于那些在这里的人,对他们生活方式展现更多的宽容,更多的人就因为没有实行足够的宽容而犯罪。心理学空间4Hp\ u Z0m5pZ6?m
