text Apple, the State and Social Rights - by Mark Fliegauf and Hans Springstein
Apple only gained its profits with the iPhone because of state promotion and investment in the Internet and language recognition software. The state faces a revenue crisis in part because Apple, Google and dominant corporations transfer tens of billions in profits to tax havens and dummy Irish corporations. The 8-hour day was only achieved through organization and struggle.
