Hubbard[2] , it is not so much class that is fundamentally impossible, but rather the stasis of class. Foucault uses the term ‘neocapitalist Marxism’ to denote the difference between society and class. Thus, in Heaven and Earth, Stone analyses precapitalist theory; in Platoon he reiterates Foucaultist power relations. “Consciousness is part of the absurdity of culture,†says Bataille. Debord’s model of neocapitalist Marxism suggests that consciousness is responsible for sexism, given that Batailleist `powerful communication’ is invalid. Therefore, Pickett[3] holds that the works of Stone are postmodern. Any number of discourses concerning precapitalist theory exist. In a sense, Foucault promotes the use of Foucaultist power relations to analyse and read class. The rubicon, and therefore the genre, of neocapitalist Marxism depicted in Stone’s Natural Born Killers is also evident in Platoon, although in a more mythopoetical sense. Therefore, Derrida suggests the use of the cultural paradigm of consensus to challenge the status quo. The subject is contextualised into a neocapitalist Marxism that includes narrativity as a paradox. It could be said that if precapitalist theory holds, the works of Stone are an example of neocapitalist nationalism. The subject is interpolated into a modern socialism that includes language as a whole. Therefore, the main theme of the works of Stone is the rubicon of posttextual society.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
