What I think tends to militate against this position, Kevin, is that most
people could give lots of examples of co-ops and mutualist organizations
de-mutualizing (insurance companies, e.g.) but very few where
statist/corporate bodies go mutual.  Correct me here, but I can't think of

I am always interested in A-->B in social studies.  It is always
overlooked.  People visualize end states, but can't give a convincing
account of the transition...and then seem to act is if that is an OK thing
to ignore.
