Standard

“ Where the state ends and civil society begins has always been permeable and contested –  in other words, subject to politics and political struggle. The state is not an entity standing over and above society, but instead one premised upon the social forces that bring it into being ”

Rafael Khachaturian, ‘Ditching the deep state’, Jacobin Magazine
