The Wikipedia article on civil society contained reference to a "commercial state". This stub is pieced together to support and elaborate on that usage. Comments on the appropriateness of this item would be welcome. Colleagues (mostly in Europe) use this term to describe the U.S., but I am not aware of any published citations to support its use.

The first sentence of the secord paragraph is far too long and extremely confusing. I would edit it myself but I'm not sure of what exactly is being said here. Hayford Peirce 12:52, 20 July 2007 (CDT)
Thanks. I've broken it up into three separate sentences.
