State sponsored capitalism, where private profits for government-protected businesses are created at public risk.

This print features Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke - the core private entity in global finance making the corporativist state possible - leading people off a cliff as riot police defend the austerity placed on the common man as their wealth and future is stripped away from them.

This print was created by Dan McCall for sale by LibertyManiacs.com as the 2008 bailouts began. It has become of favorite of Liberty Maniacs patrons, and a powerful statement against the brutal state of modern fascism.

I'm certain Captain Gantu and the Grand Councilwoman would not be ok with this.

Corporations are not possible without state and true capitalism is not possible with state.

Also people can not be free in any state and all states collapse always.

State do not work in theory nor in practice as we can see.

Firms are possible without state, free market, real defence, real education, real economy etc.

Only negative aspect I have managed to to find and still worries me is the fact that overall comfort and richness tend to make people lazy and activate genes what are responsible for not so progressive behaviours though I think that can be avoided by better self control and logic.

Socialistic arguments so far have been all faulty and non logical therefore impossible in real life.

Sure, because freedom and progress are only possible with private property and free trade?
Come on, know your duties.

Technokracie a individualismus je v tomto světě nejlepší řešení, jinak politické ideologie jsou pro malé děti.

To je hnus velebnosti! Jedine navrat k prirode a zodpovednost k nej nas moze zachranit, ked v Amerike v jednom meste bola strata elektriny, viac ako tisic ludi zahinulo to je dokaz ze ludia uz su neschopny sa postarat o seba cize upadok...

State corporatism is a bit of an oxymoron anyway.

Corporatism is the real sense, protect the nation from union abuses, protect the nation from private greed.

In opposition to both rampant capitalism and communist madness.

How the heck will Corporatism (rule of corporations) protect nation from private (i.e. corporate) greed?

Corporatism does not mean rule of corporations in this sense, it is mediation of relations between company and workers by the state (put simply.)

Oh; in that case, still, state can protect workers from corporations ifit wills to (though corporations usually have greater leverage to influence (bribe, etc.) governments their way than workers do).
And if not, some corporations are more powerfull than some states.

Nationalize the losses, privatize the profits!

Mussolini´s economic model was the better one.
