The point I was making was that the state underlies and underwrites pretty much all of what we call capitalism....
The state uses taxes that we pay for infrastructure,
defense, & the machinery of government. So you
could say that capitalism "underlies & underwrites
pretty much all of what we call" the state.
It's not quite what some wag once said to dismiss
the entrepreneurs, owners, & managers of business....
"You didn't build that.
Somebody else made that happen."
Also, the central proposition of the socialist movement isn't that governments own the means of production - it is that the workers control the means of production. A sizeable number of socialists want to eridicate the state entirely.
In all applications of socialism, it's always been
government that does the controlling of the
means of production. After all, a crowd can't
do that job, so it's up to their representatives,
ie, government to represent the workers / people.
Under capitalism, workers have the right & ability
to start or buy companies that they can run. They
do this as much as they want to & are able to
compete with other companies.
