That's not a meaningful question.

The state props up and defends systems of oppression and inequality such as capitalism. I might be more sympathetic towards Marxists than most here but the idea that you can channel state power in a completely beneficial direction just doesn't add up.

Similarly, capitalism requires a state to function.

Capital and the State are like one of those bosses in RPGs where if you don't kill them at roughly the same time, they just heal each other back to full health.

both are intertwined, capital without a state becomes it's own state, the state without capitalism has existed before and isn't any better (see feudalism, aristocracy, theocracy, and yes; state socialists like the soviets)
