Where is the State here?

T K Arun writes in the ET “The Sapiens in Homo Sapiens stands for wisdom, the ability to reason. Ideation is a defining feature of the human being. 

From stone implements, mastering fire, mastering animals and crop husbandry, smelting ore to produce metal, using the metal to create more refined tools and weapons, conquest and subjugation, migration to all corners of the planet, music and art, language and literature, war and worship, mathematics and astronomy, rebellion and revolution, missiles and missions to the moon — all milestones in man’s march from a primitive biped in a corner of Africa to the supreme species whose ambition now soars beyond the sun embody the power of thought fusing with action”.
