Robert Hanna:

"When we combine

(i) the coercive authoritarianism of all States, especiallyincluding all contemporary neoliberal nation-States, with

(ii) global corporate capitalism,

(iii) complicit, conformist, neoliberal universities and their faculties (Maiese and Hanna201 9: ch.4), and with

(iv) globalized digital media, then we have what I will call

“The Hyper-State,” 

.. that is, the military-industrial-university-digital complex that nationally, internationally, and globally guides and shapes States and their governments, often more or less covertly and without our being self-consciously critically aware of it."
