It surprises me how reading Zizek tends make me feel better about life.

"What the cynics don’t see is their own naivety, the naivety of their cynical wisdom that ignores the power of illusions."
- slavoj zizek

The advent of Obama really has inspired a nation. The mere fact that a public option is even being seriously considered proves to me that things have changed - a few years ago I would have thought it impossible in the USA. I'm gonna continue to hope - if not because of Obama - than at least because of the symbolic importance of his election. Thanks Zizek.

Slavoj, Zizek. "Why Cynics Are Wrong."
