Absurd comparisons...

"We are caught in an unhealthy competition, a network of absurd comparisons with others. We do not pay enough attention to what makes us feel good because we are obsessed by measuring whether we experience more or less pleasure than the rest." -Žiže

Update: Since this post has already garnered several angry comments, I'm not going to allow any comments on this one. While a few of Slavoj Zize's ideas are interesting, I'm well aware of his "politics" and couldn't care less about his feelings in that area. Please don't make any ridiculous assumptions from this post outside it's specific context. I just thought the picture was cool and the quote matched up together nicely, and had applications in our arena. Lighten up, OK?
