FILM CLUB: Pervert’s guide to ideology (Fiennes/Zizek); ideological narratives

PFA Film Club Meetings are held every third Wednesday of the month at theTwo Chairmen, 39 Dartmouth Street, SW1H 9BP, at 7 pm. We show the film, starting promptly at 7, and then have the discussion.

Nearest tube stations are St James Park (3 mins) and Westminster (8 mins) There is no charge, as the landlady of the Two Chairman kindly allows us to have the room for free, but we would ask that you buy at least one drink. Food is no longer served after 6 pm, so if you want to bring a sandwich (not hot food) that is OK.

    After running through all the hollow current ideologies (dreams) of "practical possibility", Zizek implored us to "dream the impossible", which to me pointed to a world like Lennon's IMAGINE. Many dismiss IMAGINE as nice but impossible to achieve. Perhaps we need to dream how to bring it about.

    "A revolutionary situation exists when, what was once thought impossible is considered by society to be in fact possible. Friedrich Engles"

    "Don't be 'practical' in politics. To be practical in that sense means that you have schooled yourself to think along the lines, and in the grooves those who rob you would desire you to think. " James Connolly

    Good, but more confusing than it should have been!
    The answer to all the questions raised is quite simple: let communism develop - stop the propaganda against communism. Also, stop boycotting, invading or launching assassinations against progressive/socialist or more "equalitarian" sociaties such as Cuba and North Korea and see what happens! Only then, you will have an equalitarian society!!!

      Two questions: #1: Can you tell me a bit about the equal nature of North Korean society?

      B: Does 'equalitarian'­ refer to equality of opportunity, outcome, or something else?

    Perhaps if those wanting girls to sit on their laps left there would be chairs for people to sit on!!!

      Lol, all in good fun...But only frees up one chair. So perhaps more chairs is a more scalable solution....

    The room was too small for the number of people attending. I was really looking to seeing the film but wasn't ready to do it while standing by the door. Very disappointing!

    Didn't feel it appropriate to sit on someone's lap, even if it was a Pervert's Guide

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
