In a famous passage from The Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels identify the global ambitions of the bourgeoisie with characteristic aplomb: “The need of a constantly expansive market chases the bourgeoisie over the whole surface of the globe. It must nestle everywhere, settle everything, and establish connexions everywhere All old… established national industries have been destroyed or are daily being destroyed” (476). If such expansive and destructive policies are inherent to the logic of capital, as Marx and Engels suggest, then the accumulation of capital is inevitably linked to a variety of spatial disruptions. Indeed, Marx’s writings on primitive accumulation were informed by his analysis of English society and his attention to the gradual enclosure of the Commons. Spatial disruptions and increased class antagonisms are similarly an integral part of contemporary capitalism, masquerading in its benign universalist designation, globalization.
