Die „fortgesetzte“ ursprüngliche Akkumulation und die Reproduktionskrise des Kapitals heute.
Claudia von Werlhof – Cento anni dopo Rosa Luxemburg.
Il processo di accumulazione originaria “continuata” e la crisi della riproduzione del capitale oggi.
Aus dem Inhalt:
Es war 1976, als ich mithilfe Rosa Luxemburgs meine erste eigene theoretische Entdeckung machte. Sie sollte weitreichende Folgen haben. Es handelt sich um den neuen Begriff der „fortgesetzten ursprünglichen Akkumulation“…
Rosa Luxemburg has, 100 years ago, been the first to try to understand the reproduction of capital in a wider persepctive and on a broader basis than Marx, including the colonies into her analysis. She found a sort of continuation of the process of primitive accumulation regarding the ways of how the peasants and the agrarian sector were then integrated into capitalist exploitation. She did not yet, nevertheless, draw the logical conclusions out of her observations. This was done, two generations later, by the feminists of the „Bielefeld approach“, by defining the concept of an „ongoing primitive accumulation“ and relating it to the woman´s question as well, comparing peasants and modern housewives under this persepctive. From there they used the concept for a completely new explanation of the reproduction of capital and its accumulation on a world scale, referring to the relations of production outside of proletarian wage labour, the relationship with nature, the development of the productive forces, and patriarchy, including its new definition by the recent „Critial theory of patriarchy“ from Innsbruck University. This way they are able to explain the „anomalies“ of the capitalist „development of underdevelopment“ and its present global crisis due to the planned overall destruction of nature in the name of an alleged „better world“ of capitalist patriarchy.
