Such a great little excerpt. But I think it leaves out, Or Zizek doesnt finish his thought, gets side-tracked in the middle of his point :

We might already have noted that it is a current condition of our situation that we are able to believe; everything that we do is always conditioned with the “I believe”, which means that we take everything that everyone says tentatively as a part of a larger condition in which people have a capacity to know things as true that are actually false in this sort of larger scheme of truth that extends into unknowability. We say not only “what do you believe” but we condition everything that everybody might know as true as a belief, which means really that I can have my own belief and function in such away within a certain truth condition, and you can likewise have your truth, and we can live happily together because there’s this larger true universe of relativity we’re both are beliefs really have no foundation.  

Within this environment then, if we are to attempt to speak about anything true then we always have to condition it, like he talks about Judith Butler and the cup of tea. 

Innoway it’s a very postmodern situation that Zizek is defying. For the irony of the postmodern and it’s deconstructivism is in the motion of its discourses, but also inasmuch as there is an inherent irony in those postmodern discourses what it takes in order for them to be solute, in order for them to function or have certain capacity to be describing something not ironic, which is to say something substantial something directly communicated in its truthfulness, is a certain force, something that brings the inherent irony into it substance, and this is, in fact, the power of belief. And this is the say That we have to bring to bear upon these conditional discourses a certain force that makes them substantial; this force is belief.

But more so it is the situation that we find ourselves in that causes believe to precipitate out of the situation as Zizek is describing, such that we condition ourselves our own situation to say like oh there is no substance anymore and at some point there was real belief or some substance of character in the world or something of that sort. But it is in fact merely our particular way that we condition or knowledge to exceptionalize ourselves from what might be past or historically distant. 

Zizek goes on to suggest that really there’s no difference in what is allowing us to manifest reality as world now as compared to whatever may have been occurring 100 years ago or when ever, and that it is in this feature  of being human, the being that is human, through which we might gain a view of the situation that is more accurate.
