Book Description

The Psychopathology of American Capitalism (PDF) is a synthesis of psychoanalytic and Marxist strategies that is intended 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. Following the conclusion of the Second World War, the Republicans and Democrats were successful in eliminating communist and socialist events from the American political spectrum and crushing their linked labor movements. The shift to the right wing within both parties has created a false dichotomy of left and right that does not correspond to the political oppositions that exist within industrialized democracies. The Marxist worldview is able to explain the vast disparities that exist within the political and economic system; nevertheless, it is not adequate for shedding light on how this system is maintained. It is vital to conduct psychoanalysis in order to explain why people in the United States continue to vote in a two-party system that ignores the lower lessons, as well as why the working class tends to vote in favor of its own personal interests. A number of different psychoanalytic techniques, such as doubling, displacement, condensation, repetition, inversion, denial, fetishizing, and cognitive suppression, are utilized throughout the process. Examining the focus upon the proxy binary of Democrat against Republican, which hides the genuine opposition of right versus left and renders alternate choices ineffective, the work reviews quite a few contemporary political issues through the lens of Marxist psychoanalytic concept.
