Exercising freedom – interview with Judith Butler

Can we exercise freedom like we exercise our bodies? Do protesters have to use their bodies to occupy the public space to make their demands enter the political sphere? Should we speed up reaching radical democracy, and slow down with generalizations? – prof. Judith Butler explains how precarity affects people’s lives, what the meaning of occupy movement is, and why it “encouraged the public to think systematically about the economic system.” Of course, always remembering that “gender remains surely with us.”
