You made an assertion.

I asked you to back it up. Show me the historical references that you suggest exist that support your theory that a strong state is required for prosperity.

The reference to Africa was not a good one because that is a whole continent with many varied forms of strong and weak governments, as well as a long history of having strong external governments interfere in their politics, wars, and affairs.

It also includes both extremely rich and extremely poor nations, due to a wide range of factors.
