READING TIME | is private space disappearing?

Based on Slavoj Žižek´s book “Event : A Philosophical Journey Through a Concept”, 2014

(…)Then, by direct consequence, my individuality is also disappearing.
Thus, if that happens it means that public space will become a private space.
The privatization of public space would mark the start of a gargoyle relationship between humans…That is just our absolute surrender to the capitalist system.

Using terms of Zizek, “this is the diseventalization of the search for the democratization of life and by relative effect, of the arts as well.” If men end up being a prisoner of this “new” public space, he is condemned to the loss of spontaneity. The public space is no longer unpredictable and becomes systematically ordinary.
