Thus, capital's own dialectic renders it increasingly obsolete and points to its own possible "determinate negation" in a social form in which human relations and production are not mediated by abstract labor. These can perhaps best be summarized in terms of Post- one's interpretation of the well-known passage in the third volume of Capital, where Marx discusses the realms of necessity and freedom. He calls into question many of the presuppositions of traditional Marxist analyses and offers new interpretations of Marx s central arguments. According to this new interpretation, Marx identifies the core of the capitalist system with an impersonal form of social domination generated by labor and the industrial production process are characterized as expressions of domination generated by labor itself and not simply with market mechanisms and private property. Theory's political role is limited to the still important tasks of exposing capitalism's contradictions and changing forms of exploitation, defining the politically possible in historically specific terms, locating in capital's fissures possible sources of opposition, and articulating possibilities of common cause among disparate oppositional groups.
