Abstract:U.S.-centric, capitalistic development depends upon a possessive individualism that naturalizes a transcendent, exceptional “Americanness” by privileging maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality and class position. This process of privileging involves a double maneuver: (1) ideologically, those forces that oppose progressive change rearticulate their protection of traditionally oppressive hierarchies as a defense of a fictively embattled majority-as-minority and (2) the material power of dominance is hidden from criticism as dominant groups attempt a distorted class alliance by relying on a call to defend this “tradition” of those that suffer the most even as they defend it. Economic and social justice is traded for a psychic reward: the ability to define themselves as part of, in some or any sense, the valued class. The first chapter defines and models the theoretical approach of the rest of the volume. The second chapter is an examination of the labor theory of value from its most basic premises through the nuances of productive and unproductive labor in order to see who, according to central theorists, can be said to be members of the proletarian class. The next chapter examines the Marxist theories of imperialism that combine a challenge to the Eurocentric predisposition of some theorists with an examination of Marxist anti-imperialist thought that counters this. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the labor theory of value that allows for an expansion of the revolutionary subject that conforms to the reality of socialist revolution as it has existed in the last century. The next five chapters examine U.S. domestic and foreign policy (U.S. welfare, the federal Defense of Marriage Act, U.S. think tanks, the war on Vietnam, and the war on Afghanistan and Iraq, respectively) in order to examine the ideological and material erasures that underlie the possessive individualism that naturalizes the transcendent, exceptional “Americanness” I described above. The final chapter is a reflection on the Marxist movement at the present time.
