Louis,
Right on!  Your notion, I just wanted to point out, about the success
of the welfare state being based on imperial plunder, is stated in
I think better, more sophisticate form in G. William Domhoff's book, THE
POWER ELITE AND PUBLIC POLICY.  Domhoff would add to your theory that
Western Europe were special cases where the bourgeoisie employed their super
profits from superexploitation in ordr to stave off what were very militant
labor and communist movements in these countries throughout the 20th century.:
not because of the inheren"t superiority of market socialism t"o society-in-
general, to the capitalists, or to the working class, vis capitalism or
socialist planning
