If you want tickets for the forthcoming showdown between Jordan Peterson 
and Slavoj Zizek, which will be held later this month in Toronto, better 
act fast: There are two left — as of this writing, anyway — and they’re 
$1,500 apiece. The unlikely and unshaven pair will square off at the 
Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, which seats about 3,000, 
where they will debate whether capitalism or Marxism leads to happiness. 
News of their debate, which has been in the works since last year, has 
been greeted with giddiness from their respective fan bases, and fervent 
eye-rolling elsewhere. Slate offered that there is "no one to cheer for” 
in this highbrow tête-à-tête, while The Stranger sniffed that “nothing 
is a greater waste of time.”
