my duty as an intellectual

“If I’m honest, at least as a philosopher, I [must say] don’t have answers. We intellectuals do not have answers. If you ask me what to do about ecology, bah! What do I know? What we can do is change the very questions. We can show to what extent the very way we approach a problem, which is a very real problem, is part of that problem.”

–Slavoj Zizek, on Democracy Now with Amy Goodman, New York City, March 2008
