Example text

This episode — which places Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the past, present, and future—signals American culture’s readiness to recognize that patriarchy is a good thing for men which should come to an end. s ta r t r e k , c a m e l o t , a n d s u pe r m a n During the utopian time that was Camelot, a militarily and economically powerful America applauded a White House which welcomed arts, humanities, and European culture. The country had two saviors ensconced in the White House: JFK, who saved us from the Communists in Cuba and their flying nuclear phalluses, and Jackie, who saved us from cultural barbarism.

American popular culture, then, now reflects the question about who, appropriately, is Superman, posed in regard to power relations between hegemony and Other. For example, Richard Goldstein, writing in the Village Voice, positions Oskar Schindler as Superman: “And then there is the question of the righteous Christian in the movie [Schindler’s List], the Superman figure, who flies in and saves Lois Lane, the Jew” (Goldstein, 27). As I have explained, like Oskar Schindler, Vicki Reggie is Superman; Ted Kennedy and Schindler Jews are Lois Lane.

Israel, after all, is “the invention of Jewish fantasy” (“Bellarosa,” 64). Israel is a Jewish story, a Jewish dream, which becomes reality. Israel is a stage set upon which Jews act as powerful human beings, not alien Others. Sorella and Harry appear on this particular Jewish stage: “And here they were in color, the Judean desert behind them, as husband and wife in a once-upona-time Coney Island might have posed against a painted backdrop or sitting on a slice of moon” (70). Israel functions as a Hans Pfaall–like moon for Jews: the country is a new location which affords Jews spaces in which to rise above oppression and fixed definitions.
