Book Description

The Psychopathology of American Capitalism; (PDF) synthesizes psychoanalytic and Marxist strategies so as to lighten the resistance to a socialization of the American financial system; the suppression of the capitalist welfare state; and the protectionist discourses of anomalous American capitalism. After the Second World War; Republicans and Democrats successfully eradicated the communist and socialist events from the American political spectrum and crushed their allied labor actions. The proper-wing shift of each events made up a false opposition of left and proper that doesn’t match political oppositions within the industrialized democracies. Marxist views can account for the large inequality of the political financial system; however they’re insufficient for illuminating its preservation. Psychoanalysis is important so as to clarify why Americans proceed to vote in a two-get together system that ignores the decrease lessons; and why the working class inclined to vote towards its personal pursuits. The psychoanalytic strategies employed include doubling; displacement; condensation; repetition; inversion; denial; fetishizing; and cognitive repression. In inspecting the fixation upon the proxy binary of Democrat vs. Republican; which suppresses the true opposition of proper vs. left and neutralizes alternate options; the work evaluates quite a few up to date political points by functions of Marxist psychoanalytic idea.
