The Ati-thesis , Marxism


"By that definition, a state capitalist country is one where the government controls the economy and essentially acts like a single huge corporation, extracting the surplus value from the workforce in order to invest it in further production.[3] Friedrich Engels, in Socialism: Utopian and Scientific, argues that state capitalism would be the final stage of capitalism consisting of ownership and management of large-scale production and communication by the bourgeois state.[4]"

At Andersen Studio, we know this well as neither "high growth" private capitalist, nor non-profit organization, we have long been relegated to the economic sector non-creative masses by the authority of Maine's corporate state.
