Either this question is about France, or it is about the first secular society; I revised to emphasize the second.

comment What did Germany do after World War II to recover so successfully that it became more prosperous than its WW2 victors?
<begin humor>I can't help but imagine the Carl Sagan poster,"Nice hypothesis you have there; pity if someone decided to test it...." </humor> You've presented a hypothesis devoid of any evidence or any framework by which the hypothesis could be tested.

comment Are there any shorter works approaching the breadth of Durant's “The Story of Civilization”?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because requests for general purpose references are out of scope (See How to Ask and History Meta(meta.history.stackexchange.com)). This is still a debated subject, but until the debate is resolved, we should follow the established rules. Amazon or goodreads will provide suggestions on what to read next. Good luck!

comment Is this true that the Russian economy was efficient during war II?
I'm not sure why "russian system" and "communist approach" are in scarequotes. The source is an opinion in an internet discussion forum devoted to a non-mainstream political view, and it provides no evidence. I'm sufficiently skeptical of the source that I think any reasoning arising from this source is suspect.
