In the interview, Kennard set alleged shooter Wade Michael Page's experience in the military and what we've come to learn of his neo-Nazi affiliations in context.
As Kennard explained:
Today, Big Think hosts their exclusive interview with Slavoj Žižek on the publication of his new book Less Than Nothing: Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism. In this 3-minute segment, Žižek discusses some of the key issues that frame his more than 1,000-page mega-book on Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, who Žižek considers his most important influence.
The Nakba, or "day of catastrophe," remains the central issue of struggle for the Palestinian people. Commemorated each May 15th, the Nakba began in May 1948 when the State of Israel was founded on Palestinian lands, leading to the forcible expulsion of 75% of the indigenous population. Today, over 5 million Palestinian refugees remain in refugee camps in countries around the world, unable to return to their land and homes. They are the oldest and largest refugee population in the world.
With the announcement, just one day before the Nakba, that Israel has settled with hundreds of Palestinian political prisoners on hunger strike, we reflect on 64 years of Israeli occupation—and Palestinian resistance—with a survey of Verso's responses to this struggle.
