Example text

These illusions are forced upon the agents of production by the particular mechanism of this form of production, and it is these which really determine their activity. 12 Capital’s interest in maintaining the basis of its existence can only develop subsequently, and in face of a threat to the very foundation of this mode of production. The most important relationship, the one that determines the real behaviour of capital, is the relationship of the individual capital to its source of surplus-value, the The ‘Welfare-State Illusion’ 37 workers it exploits (cf.

It is therefore not a mere instrument, indifferent to content, but a real and com­ prehensible necessary moment of the establishment of capital as total social capital. 3 In the realm of competition capital can only become total social capital to the extent that the individual capitals really relate to each other. But this they can only do to the extent th at they act capitalistically, that is, as surplus-valueproducing capitals. However, not all social functions can be carried out in this sense capitalistically, whether because the production of certain (material) conditions of production yields no profit, or because the level of generality of many regulations under prevailing concrete conditions is too great for them to be performed by individual capitals with their different particular interests.

By starting, not from one aspect of the structure of social relations (as did the first approach), but from the fetishized appearance presented by the surface of bourgeois society, such authors necessarily cut themselves off from an historical understanding of the ¡state. The merit of Flatow and Huisken’s article lies in drawing attention 24 John Holloway and Sol Picciotto to the primary importance of an analysis of commodity fetishism, of the relations between essence and surface appearance, in any study of the prob­ lem of legitimation, of how it is that the state is able to appear as a neutral instance acting in the general interest.
