English term or phrase: deep state
Definition from Merriam-Webster:
An alleged secret network of especially nonelected government officials and sometimes private entities (as in the financial services and defense industries) operating extralegally to influence and enact government policy.

Example sentence(s):
  • It is Trump himself, under the camouflage of populist rhetoric, who has overseen the open expansion of the deep state: entrenched interests gaining outsize influence and setting their own policy agenda, unchecked by the will of the people, their elected representatives or the civil servants meant to regulate them. The Washington Post
  • “They take detailees, not the best from these agencies, often the worst, they stick them into the White House,” he concluded. “It's a practice that frankly should end, and the political appointees, Tim Morrison and [Kurt] Volker aren't mistaking themselves for the president, it's these Deep State bureaucrats that do.” Christian Whiton

duboka država


Definition from Wikipedia:
Duboka država je naziv za sveukupnost stalnog profesionalnog osoblja u državnim subjektima, ključnim poduzećima, medijima i sl. koja zbilja drži državnu vlast. Duboka država je jedan usporedni sustav, koji svoje partikularne interese i interese svojih gospodara i istomišljenika nameću kao opće, pa interesi duboke države su u pojedinim trenucima jači su od interesa same države za koju nominalno rade.

Example sentence(s):
  • Duboka država, (u engleskom: deep state) pojam je koji se razvio iz latinskog imperium in imperio – vlast u vlasti, što je opet preuzeto iz grčkog kratos en kratoi i označava takvo političko stanje u kojem neka organizacija koja bi nominalno trebala biti podređena državnoj vlasti ili državnom vrhu u stvari djeluje potpuno samostalno i bez ikakve kontrole. Ili, u drugom slučaju, djeluje u dosluhu s vlašću, uvjetujući je i stvarajući novi amalgam društvene moći – mreže neformalne političke moći u koje su upleteni svi oni kojima te mreže dopuštaju da obnašaju neku javnu funkciju. - autograf.hr

Yes  Andrej Furlan: "Deep state" je etimološki gledano potpuno (star možda koju deceniju) novi izraz proizašao iz USA. Trenutno je najbolja solucija doslovno ga prevesti. Ta solucija se primjenjuje i u nekim ostalim jezicima, npr. Švedski, Talijanski, Francuski, Slovenski.
