No, in the US it serves capital. That's the purpose of the state in capitalist societies, to serve the interests of the ownership class.
Semantics. The US state predates its capital and has always served itself, and only served capital subsequently to strengthen itself. Facebook, Google et al are the best organs of US power projected overseas. It’s why the Chinese so strongly refuse both.

No it doesn't.

The US state was literally created to serve the interests of mercantilist landholders mad about being taxed.

China is a state capitalist country, as per Mao's own words and vision. The final goal of a stateless communist society was never realised, some would argue due to Dengist reforms. The marriage in that case is just a little closer.

Cultural Marxism is a repurposed Nazi dogwhistle, being a spin on cultural Bolshevism.

And the same attacks broadly directed at "Cultural Marxists" now, were those levelled at alleged "Cultural Bolsheviks" in the 30's. That they are undermining Western or European society, that their values and social product result in degeneracy and that their mode of assault is through culture mixing and subversion.

But it's odd seeing avowed capitalists blame Marxism for capitalism at work. Tech giants see the cost in terms of advertisers and a broader user base, for allowing reckless conspiracy mongers like Jones to use their platform to incite violence or hatred. Banning him isn't "cultural Marxism", it's a purely financial decision. You wan't unrestrained capitalism, you don't want government interference in markets, in legislating codes of conduct for media or media platforms, well this is what it's boot looks like.
Sure m8. Silicon Valley liberals are banning people with tens of millions of fans, like Alex Jones, because it will somehow increase their profits to do so. Nothing to do with ideology.

No one, not a single user, refused to use Twitter or FB because Jones was on there.

And now cultural Marxism is an anti semitic plot, because The Guardian says so? You "real socialism has never been tried" roosters sure are gullible :tearsofjoy:
