The Keynesian welfare state is best described as the mild-mannered alter ego of the totalitarian welfare state. The official alchemists responsible for transmuting debt into political power eventually find it impossible to siphon wealth out of the productive class in amounts sufficient to meet the needs of the political class. When this happens, the ruling elite will inevitably turn to bloodshed as a source of economic "stimulus."
Slaughter as 'Simulus' by William Norman Grigg
Last time I checked, mindless war destroys economies but hey there might be a Keynesian theory that proves me wrong.
