In In Defense of Lost Causes and Violence, Adam Kirsch has leveled the accusation that the politics advocated by Žižek, “that glorifies risk, decision, and will; that yearns for the hero, the master, and the leader; that prefers death and the infinite to democracy and the pragmatic; that finds the only true freedom in the terror of violence“, is fascism, and that Žižek thereby “has inarguably revealed himself as some sort of fascist”.
