I do not know Nina Krajnik personally. But after what I read (we had an interview with her in Demokracija) and heard (an interview on TV Slovenia), I must say that I find her a convincing and clear, also likeable woman. She knows what she is talking about, she is consistent and very direct.
Recently, the “pioneer of Lacanian psychoanalysis in Slovenia”, who befriended and collaborated with Lacan’s (deceased) daughter Judith Miller, said that until 2015 there was no Lacanian psychoanalysis in Slovenia. That was a real shock. How is this possible when we have the main Lacanian Slavoj Žižek? And the Society for Theoretical Psychoanalysis, founded by Mladen Dolar and Rastko Močnik in addition to Žižek? Journalist Matej Klarič even wrote on Twitter (in Stalinist vocabulary and true, worthy of Žižek himself) how Možina even dares to host and present Krajnik as a pioneer of Lacanian psychoanalysis in Slovenia, “if it is known that we have had a world spike for more than 40 years in this direction”.
It is true. Žižek has a monopoly over Lacan. He introduced himself and promoted himself as a Lacanian, enthroned by the global academic left. In fact, he is a post-Marxist philosopher, an apologist for cultural Marxism, a member of the “jurassic left” who perfidiously hides his obsessive contempt for capitalism (which he actually feeds on) and admires the world’s greatest tyrannies (Stalinism and Maoism). Because he picks up crumbs from everywhere, some mix Marx and Lacan (probably Hegel as well). But his word counts whatever he says. This is not being discussed in Slovenia, let alone doubts. All that is possible is humble kneeling before his Lacanian Highness and nodding to the whims of the prophet of the capitalist apocalypse. His word is first and last. There is nothing in between, nothing at all. It seems that this has always been the case until Krajnik came and said out loud that such a situation was possible only because the clique led by Gregor Golobič (and the circle around Slavoj Žižek, Mladen Dolar, Renata Salecl and others) “privatised one of the main ideological mechanisms of the state” – higher education and the academic sphere. “The forensic trace of this is public money. And someone will have to intervene in this in the future,” she said. The answer of the deep state came very quickly – Nina Krajnik was broken into her home by Odlazek’s journalists. Because she touched on the finances of the deep state and was critical of the poor copies of the Slovene Lacanians. Even though she received support from Jacques Alain Miller, Lacan’s intellectual heir: “Slavoj, Mladen Dolar, a dark eye is watching you in Ljubljana as well, and it is not the one that watched Kain, because Nina should live.”
