Apropos of the last posting: perhaps I have revealed my (always suspected) essentially conservative nature, since, as Zizek quotes Heidegger as saying:

“What is conservative remains bogged down in the historiographical; only what is revolutionary attains the depth of history. Revolution does not mean here mere subversion and destruction but an upheaval and re-creating of the customary so that the beginning might be restructured...” (qtd on page 278, Parallax View)

But then again, perhaps it is ‘properly’ progressive to be called conservative by Heidegger?
