India Today - - UPFRONT -

Some weeks ago, the alt-right leader Richard Pence was sucker-punched while giv­ing an in­ter­view in Wash­ing­ton, DC. It led to much so­cial me­dia soul search­ing—in the form of videos of the punch set to mu­sic, com­par­isons to comic book su­per­heroes punch­ing Nazis, and of course an on­line game. Fi­nally, pro­fes­sion­ally di­shev­elled Hegelian Marx­ist Slavoj Zizek was called upon for an au­thor­i­ta­tive opin­ion. So, is it okay to punch a right-wing creep? What do you think?
