In other words, the notion of hegemony subverts the 'ideology' (and paradigm) of crude Marxism, in which the superstructure is regarded as distinct from, yet determined by, the economic base. In the post-Marxist theory of hegemony, in fact, there is no fundamentally distinct base and superstructure, only contingent political establishments, which will take the form of different forms of socio-political arrangements. Human life is not a passive reflection of economic dictates. 4 THE WAY OF CHANGELESS CHANGE: ZIZEK'S LIMIT PROBLEM But Zizek does not accept the Laclauian argument about hegemony, nor does he accept the efficacy or even the reality of politics construed as changes in legislation, inter-institutional organization, or anything 'pragmatic' like that.
If only you had better magazines in your waiting room, then I wouldn't be so angry and disappointed'. What Zizek is essentially saying, pleading is: if only we did not have political correctness, then we might have a proper revolution. If only we did not have liberalism, then we might have socialism. But within the transference, these claims should be read as: if only I [Zizek] was not busy attacking postmodernism, then I might very well be able to formulate a political economic critique. One deduction that Zizek could not phantasmatically make, however, is: 'if only the Others didn't get so much recognition, then I might get more'.
And it repeats infantile reactions. There is no such transference state which does not reproduce infantile prototypes' (Freud 1990: 29). 11 One can see, as Zizek does time and time again, how easily consumer capitalism can answer this question, and how futile any answer would be. One of Zizek's most entertaining and insightful combinatory uses of psychoanalysis and Marxism to investigate late capitalist society comes in his slender volume The Fragile Absolute (2000) which demonstrateshow one of the most successful capitalist enterprises of all time answers this precise question: What is 'it'?
