Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I saw much the same in a comment over at ThinkAboutIt. (A 5-star rating out of me. I support my fellow ETians.). But thanks for the reply.

It's just an idea I've been toying with, a thought experiment, in conjunction with the book Modernization, Cultural Change, and Democracy that I'd been reading. (I remember your comment - I think it was you - regarding the "modernization" part. The authors dispute this, but that's part of a future diary. :)
