Slavoj Zizek: The Delusion of Green Capitalism

Oct 2, 2013 | Pratirodh Bureau

“Buying green” and being green is still buying into the premises of and supporting capitslism and capitalist institutions.
Eating organic and being green is as much a political act as a health and nutrition issue.
However, the politics are flawed.
What good is being ecologically correct if the same capitalistic power structures and institutions call the shots overall?
It is the illusion of individual power, the semblence of “correct decision making”.
