this paper, the author discusses a distinct characteristic
of the State under neo-liberalism; a transformation
in its texture through a change in the nature of bureaucracy,
State personnel and ''organic intellectuals''. However
the social legitimacy of the State, under question as
a fall out of the neo liberal economic policies, and
consequently the stability of the Capitalist order will
depend upon its identity of being a supra-social entity.
The State will also try to regain lost social legitimacy
by manufacturing some perceived enemy, in turn giving
rise to jingoism, terrorism and parochial identities.
