Random Access Memory

If Fox news are airing this I'm inclined to believe as I blogged earlier, that the tipping point is approaching. However it's unlikely to change the most important achievement of 911 which as Zizek points out is a domestically satisfying sense of victimhood

It's hard for me to guess with respect to large swathes of the American electorate, if anything changes when one is still a victim even as the perpetrator changes masks? I mean, what chance does history have when memory so often barely stretches from one tweet to the next?
