Just to double check, does this belong here or elsewhere?

"Jenaveve took everything from me.
My friends,
My family,
Her ambitions to dominate the universe are terrifying,
Evil beyond imagining.
Tyrong Kojy,
The one whose power even the creator fears,
Will stop her.
Even if I have to destroy the universe to do it!"
Tyrong Kojy/Jenaveve by Nicholas Rivest

I think its fine here. Otherwise the politics section.

I think he's confused when he says that capitalism is indifferent to the "needs" of corporations. Corporations largely supply the State with its hefty pocket book. It's a mutually enabling sort of relationship between state and corporation. And since capitalism cannot sustain itself without heaps of legislation (which means centralisation of authority, constituting a state), you'll naturally end up with these relationships.

"A market economy must comprise all elements of industry including labor, land and money [...] But labor and land are no other than the human beings themselves of which every society consists and the natural surroundings in which it exists. To include them in the market mechanism means to subordinate the substance of society itself."
--Karl Polanyi--

In essence, either the State are the thugs of the ruling class (corporations), are the ruling class itself or a friendly (or unfriendly) competitor that serves as a regulator.
