presidential inauguration: The Disturbing Truth About the Charges Against the Standing Rock Protesters Audrea Lim Yesterday 4:14pm Filed to: VOICES One year after the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe began their legal battle to halt the pipeline, which they argue will threaten their water and damage sacred sites, more than 500 of the 800-some water protectors arrested are still facing charges.

presidential inauguration: QZ&A Philosopher Slavoj Zizek settles the "Is it Okto punchaNazi?" question once and for all By Taylor Wofford January 27 2017 White nationalist Richard Spencer speaks with college students in Texas. (Reuters/Spencer Selvidge) “Is it OK to punch a Nazi?” is a question that has ricocheted around Twitter ever since Jan. 20, when “alt-right” provocateur and American white supremacist Richard Spencer got slugged on video by a masked protester during Donald Trump’s US presidential inauguration. Footage of the punch spread quickly around the internet, where it became a topic of much debate, a website and even a meme. But while some people celebrated the punch, others wondered if, on a more philosophical level, sucker punching a neo-Nazi is ever acceptable behavior. Most respectable types said no, while others, including many on the so-called “Dirtbag Left,” pointed out that punching Nazis is a time-honored American tradition. I asked controversial Slovenian philosopher and professor at the European Graduate School Slavoj Žižek what he thought. His answer might surprise you. (Editor’s note: the following transcript has been edited for clarity.) Quartz: So, is it OK to punch a Nazi? Žižek: No! If there is violence needed, I’m more for Gandhian, passive violence. I once made a statement, maybe you know it, which cost me dearly. I said the problem with Hitler was that he wasn’t violent enough. Then I said, in the same statement, that Gandhi was more violent than Hitler. All Hitler’s violence was reactive violence. He killed millions, but the ultimate goal was basically to keep the system the way it was—German capitalism and so on—while Gandhi really wanted to bring down the British state. But his violence was symbolic: peaceful demonstrations, general strikes and so on. If a guy talks like that jerk [Richard Spencer], you should just ignore him. If he hits you, turn around. Don’t even acknowledge him as a person. That’s the type of violence I would call for. Not physical violence. Because, you know, people say symbolic violence can be even worse, but don’t underestimate physical violence. Something happens when you move to physical violence.
