Marxism: Slavoj Zizek vs Jordan B Peterson: Official Video

I posted this yesterday, but the volume was too low, so now it's been raised.

On February, April 19, 2019, I debated Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek [bearded guy on the right in video screenshot] in Toronto, April 19 at the Sony Centre. Dr. Zizek is a Slovenian philosopher and professor at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana, whose works on cultural studies, psychoanalysis and, above all, for the purposes of our debate, Marxism, are world-renowned. The topic? Happiness: Marxism vs Capitalism. This is the official video. Many bootlegs have already been released, but that seems inevitable given our current state of technological capability.

I started with a critique of The Communist Manifesto, which is the central revolutionary document of the Marxist movement (rather than addressing, say, Zizek's work, which wasn't what the debate was about).

It wasn't so obvious for the rest of the discussion that Marxism, per se, comprised the central topic of discussion.

Watch for yourself.
