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]"

Crowdfunder Update :
  • I have committed to the iuniversal program with a down payment, which I am feeling very good about
  • I continue to run this crowdfunder to cover the cost of the iuniversal program at a discounted rate of 50%.
  • If I succeed in meeting my crowdfunding goal of $800.00 then I will be elegable to become an author on Beacon Reader, which has a unique program for funding journalists on an ongoing basis- I have no idea how much but something beats nothing and it will connect me to a wider community.
  • Please help me to break the long trend of no response by making a contribution- it can be any amount.The Twenty five dollars is just a suggested amount.
  • The context of my book will attempt to paint a portrait of what is taking place among the States of the United States.I do not expect to be able to cover every state but will follow the leads where ever it takes me, in this case to Rhode Island

The model said to be used in the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement in which corporations are granted special terms not available to others is being used throughout Maine economic development policies- except that the special terms go exclusively to special interests qualified by the Maine legislature as the targeted sector and frequently implemented through public-private relationships, a concept presented to the public uncritically and with bias by Maine’s main stream media.
In The Course of My research I also Found that in 2015  Rhode Island also passed J O I N T  R E S O L U T I O N  REAFFIRMING THE FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND AND TAIWAN, ENHANCING BILATERAL TRADE RELATIONS, AND SUPPORTING TAIWAN IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY including support for the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement
Representative Art Handy, Rhode Island  signed the 2012  letter from the states which objects to the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement special treatment of corporations over teh interests of the people:

We have a particular concern about the impact on state regulatory, legal, and judicial authority if the Investor-State dispute arbitration provisions are adopted as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. The TPP, which is currently under negotiation among nine Pacific Rim nations including the U.S. – and may be expanded to include NAFTA partners Canada and Mexico plus Japan — is a wide ranging treaty that will likely have significant implications for the states.

Arthur Handy (D) represents District 18, Cranston. He was first elected in November 2002. Rep. Handy is the chairman of the House Environment & Natural Resources Committee and is a member of the Health, Education and Welfare Committee.
