Happy Martin Luther King Day! The state has a social nature and can't be only a power and security state. The social state seems to have capsized into the activating or punishing state. Thirty-years of neoliberal restructuring gave every privilege to capital and resulted in generalized insecurity, mistrust, privatization, deregulation and currency speculation. Workfare was devised to decimate the welfare state and has proven a dehumanizing failure. Labor problems of today cannot be solved with methods of another era! All people should share in the gains of technology.
