The current developments in the new type of capitalism that has been recently labeled as "surveillance capitalism", specific for the contemporary information civilization in Western world, ask new questions about the relationship between state and economy, bureaucracy and citizens. Although state bureaucracy has been taken as a burden by the initial economic liberalism, the new capitalism founds the virtues of potent state bureaucracy in fulfilling its own aim, namely overpassing the pure profit and fostering universal happiness. Yet this fabricated happiness is a state of overall equality, with no real incentive and no real passion, but a total control of the human environment, under the ladder cover of a market driven authoritarianism. This stage of final Western capitalism and society was anticipated by Max Weber, Friedrich Nietzsche and Joseph Schumpeter and was indicated by Francis Fukuyama as a possible outcome of applying the methods of the modern science of nature into human affairs.
