Louis: Actually, a General Strike in 1931 accounts for the birth of SD
governments in Sweden. The film "Adalen '31" depicts these events. For
that matter, the New Deal only came into existence because a section of
the US bourgeoisie was afraid of revolution. The relationship between
social democratic reforms and socialist revolution is actually
dialectically linked, as any non-dogmatic Marxist could tell you in an
instant.
