Freud's Memory: Psychoanalysis, Mourning and the Stranger Self (Language, Discourse, Society)

A wide-ranging analyzing of Freud's paintings, this e-book makes a speciality of Freud's scientifically discredited principles approximately inherited reminiscence in relation either to poststructuralist debates approximately mourning, and to sure uncanny figurative qualities in his writing. Freud's reminiscence argues for an enriched figuring out of the strangenesses in Freud instead of any denunciation of psychoanalysis as a bogus explanatory approach.

Assuming that a candidate were a convinced free trader, or believed that veterans do not benefit from handouts, or—to go to an extreme—that the nation's bonded indebtedness is a burden on the economy, it would be political suicide for him to voice such an opinion. A candidate in the North who espoused "white supremacy" would have as little chance as a candidate in the South who did not. Were a considerable segment of the population, sufficiently large to offset the opposition, in favor of putting disabilities on Jews, Catholics or Masons, you would find candidates advocating legislation of that kind even though their private judgment were against it.

First, there is the notion that slums make for delinquency; the environmental theory. It is true that politicians took to public housing for the purpose of garnering votes, but it is also true that they latched onto the psychological argument to support their urgency for subsidized housing: take the people out of the slums, put them into nice quarters and they will live up to the dignity of their new surroundings. But, it has not worked out that way. The folks who get their rent cheap, at the expense of other taxpayers, acquire the notion that society is obligated to take care of them—good Freudianism—and that these rooms are a down payment on that obligation.

George would have none of that. Poverty, he insists, results not from maldistribution, but from the shortage of production; labor and capital are prevented by a quirk in our social arrangement from producing enough to go around. It is this deficiency in production that George addresses himself to. All production, George points out, is the result of the application of labor, with the assistance of capital, to land; and land he defines as all the resources of nature. Nothing usable, nothing that caters to man's desires, can be acquired in any other way.
