This is the truth. What’s amazing is that corporations cannot exist without the government, they are utterly interwined with the state. There are very few large companies that’s owned by any one owner and is instead jointly owned by multiple companies and parties. The difference here though, is that corporate interest is subordinate to the public interest whereas in America, the public interest is subordinate to the corporate interest.

All these people talking about their libertarian utopia don’t know that America IS their “utopia” and the truth is that their petty bourgeois complaints are levied to the government tax policy instead of the real fact that corporations are essentially mini governments/empires with their own arbitrary laws and regulations instead of a general state mandate public laws and regulations that all corporations are subordinated to.

I think the biggest problem with Americans is that they think that there is such a thing as a “public” and a “private” sector.

Technically speaking, both terms are simplistic, as the state in capitalism controls everything.

The CPC penetrates every corner of the “public” and “private” sector and the “private” sector, as the CPC has said, will “blur” into the “public” sector even more, though it is already controlled largely by the CPC.

Are you suggesting there is no public and private sector in China? Or in America?

I’m saying that it’s simplistic.

As for China… I would say that’s more accurate. They don’t really have a private or public sector in the way we might think of.

Either way: both are at the behest of the state, in the case of both China and America.

There are grey zones between black in white everywhere, everything is shades of grey. Anticipate the big mess that will happen ( to the definition of property +) when general artificial intelligence will become sentient !
