Egypt: Ramadan and Zizek

Interview with Tariq Ramadan & Slavoj Zizek

The Muslim scholar and philosopher discuss the power of popular dissent and the limits of peaceful protest.

The revolutionary chants on the streets of Egypt have resonated around the world, but with a popular uprising without a clear direction and an unpopular leader refusing to concede, Egypt’s future hangs in the balance.

We talked some at Pub Theology last week about the whole situation, and I thought this interview was worth sharing…

On AlJazeera: On Thursday’s Riz Khan on we speak with Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek about the power of popular dissent, the limits of peaceful protest and the future of Egyptian politics.
